Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis are back for the “Dancing With the Stars” semi-finals Monday night, and fans cannot wait to see what they have prepared. Are they feeling ready and confident? What will Maksim and Meryl be dancing this week? Thanks to an Instagram post by Chmerkovskiy on Saturday, it looks like this “DWTS” team's fans have reason to get excited.

Chmerkovskiy posted a casual picture of Meryl and he wrote, “I think the little smirk means that @meryledavis is ready for Monday night ;).” Most “Dancing With the Stars” fans would say that Maksim and Meryl seem to have really hit their stride at this point, sharing a fun banter and close friendship. What do they have in store for “DWTS” viewers during Monday's semi-finals?

Most of the highly-anticipated “Dancing With the Stars” spoilers for the season 18 semi-finals were under wraps until Twitter user @DWTSGossip found some enticing “DWTS” spoiler scoop. It appears that Maksim and Meryl will be dancing fifth and last, doing a Viennese waltz and a jive. The songs they will be using are still a mystery for now.

Maksim and Meryl have been pegged by many as favorites to win season 18 of “Dancing With the Stars,” but some slightly lower scores last week left some fans feeling anxious. How safe a bet is it that Chmerkovskiy and Davis will be dancing in the finale? Pretty safe according to the number crunching at PureDWTS. Though there are always shocking eliminations on “DWTS,” it is very unlikely that Meryl and Maks will be eliminated this week.

Will Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis win season 18 of “Dancing With the Stars”? Their fans hope so, and this would be Maks' first mirror-ball trophy. However, this is a very strong final five and there could be an upset ahead. While it would seem most likely that either Candace Cameron Bure or James Maslow heads home just short of the finale, that's not a sure thing. Tune in to “Dancing With the Stars” airing on Monday, May 12 to see how Maksim and Meryl do this week with their jive and Viennese waltz.
