Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis are ready for the big season 18 “Dancing With the Stars” finale week that begins Monday night. Many “DWTS” fans are betting that Meryl and Maks will win the mirror-ball trophy Tuesday, but do they believe it themselves? Are they ready to wow viewers with their final dances? People chatted with Maks and Meryl on Sunday to talk about their chemistry and approach to the big finale.

Davis says that Chmerkovskiy pushes her to stand up for herself both in dancing and real life. She adds that she thinks she can really be herself when she's with him. It sounds as if the inspiration goes both ways, as Maksim says that Meryl gives him the opportunity to be creative. He says he's “already done more on this season” than his previous 13 with “DWTS.”

Fans have seen that Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis have formed a tight bond this season on “Dancing With the Stars,” but it hasn't been without a few tense moments. Will the pressure work for them or against them this week? According to the “DWTS” spoilers at PureDWTS, the “Judges Pick” for Maksim and Meryl is the Argentine tango. They will also be doing their freestyle Monday, and Meryl shared a tiny sneak peek of it via Instagram.

Tuesday night the remaining three couples will all do a fushion dance, and the mirror-ball trophy winner will be announced. Will the season 18 “Dancing With the Stars” winners be Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy? That's what many fans are expecting, and it would be Maks' first win. However, this is a very strong final four and it isn't over yet.

Tune in to the final two shows of the “DWTS 2014” spring season airing Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC. Will Meryl and Maksim blow away the competition? Fans have loved this pairing this season, with many hoping there is a Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis romance blooming as well. That ultimately doesn't seem to be the case, but fans haven't stopped hoping. Even if there is no romance, it does seem that Maks and Meryl have formed a friendship that will continue after “Dancing With the Stars” wraps this week.
