It was an explosive evening on "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday night, with dancer Maks Chmerkovskiy taking on Judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
After Maks and partner Brandy danced the waltz, Inaba praised her moves but slammed the choreography. "I'm shocked that you took four 8s to begin your choreography," the judge said to Maks after the performance, to which he replied, "Give us a seven then, you know!" Watch the performance!
Backstage with "Extra's" special "DWTS" correspondent Tony Dovolani, Maks spoke his mind. "On behalf of all pro dancers out there, we want to say that it's hard to listen to unconstructive criticism that has nothing to do with the celebrities, that has to do with our choices," he said, adding, "If you don't like my choices, FIRE ME."
Brandy appreciated his candor. "What he did today was what he would do for you or for any friend and that's how I looked at it." Bruno Tonioli stuck up for his fellow judge. "Carrie Ann had an opinion and she quite rightly expressed it."
