Meryl Davis Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Wow. Who else had an insanely great time watching Dancing With the Stars tonight? The party anthem theme was so much fun -- and brought back so many great memories from the past. (Well, at least it did for us "older" folks.)

Now that we're at the halfway point of the show, it really seemed like some of the dancers came out of their shells tonight -- because they know they have to stand out from now on or face elimination. And while there were plenty of great performances this evening, it's no secret that Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy took the ballroom by storm with their tango.

I mean ... DAMN. Do those two have insane chemistry or what?

And even though I hate to go there because it's SO cliche -- there has to be some sort of attraction/flirtation/some level of sexual tension brewing between the two of them, right?

I don't know what it is, but there's this underlying "quality" they have that I just don't see in the other couples. It's like Meryl is so sweet and innocent but then again she's so into Maks at the same time. At some point they're going to spontaneously combust if they don't finally bite the bullet and give in to temptation.

Maybe I'm reading way too much into their partnership, but I'm honestly sensing a decent level of "OMG I want you" there.

And if they don't wind up in the finals, I'll be beyond shocked. I guess that brings us to whose journey ended tonight on DWTS -- and not surprisingly, this was the end of the road for Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke. He's a nice dude and all, but he just doesn't have the technique or talent of some of the other contestants.

Do you think there's an attraction between Meryl and Maks?
