Solo, the United States Women's National Team soccer star, and Chmerkovskiy will perform their Jive in the highly anticipated routine during Week 2 of the hit ABC television show.
Chmerkosvskiy said the fans of he and Solo should "expect a fun, lighthearted routine" as they look to march on during Season 13 of the popular TV series.
"This routine is for the fans more than the judges," Chmerkovskiy told us late Sunday night during rehearsals for the show. "We absolutely love and appreciate our fans."
Chmerkovskiy, seeking his first Mirror Ball trophy who holds a nice pair of runner-up efforts during his time on the show,and Solo started off strong in Week One, finishing alone in third place with 21 points Monday following their Viennese Waltz performance.
The popular pair received 7s across the board from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, following their routine to the Dave Matthews Band hit song, "Satellite."
