Everyone loves the multitalented Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler. Everyone loves Olympic figure skater (and pop-culture icon) Adam Rippon. Everyone loves when dancers ice-skate, and vice versa. So what could possibly be more lovable than the latest episode of the YouTube show "Break the Ice with Adam Rippon," in which Rippon teaches the sisters Ziegler to skate? (Nothing. NOTHING is more lovable than this freakishly cute video.)

Need yet another reason to be ridiculously excited about "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors"? The latest iteration of the ballroom series, which features celeb kids performing with junior pros, will debut October 7th on ABC. And if you weren't already planning on tuning in (ha. ha.), this morning's news might change your mind: We just found out which industry stars will be judging the series, and they are literally three of our favorite people in the dance universe.
Wanna hear something mind-blowing? Last night marked the second week of the latest "Dancing with the Stars: Athletes." That means we're already HALF WAY through Season 26.
Let that sink in.
This means we get only a few more weeks to watch Adam Rippon absolutely slay on the dance floor (which he did again last night). 😭 (We're not ok, either.) Things are moving fast around here, people! So fast that another TWO couples were eliminated last night. But we'll get to that later.
Excuse us for a sec—we're still recovering from extreme whiplash.
Approximately five minutes after we watched the 10 couples of "Dancing with the Stars: Athletes" perform for the first time, we were forced to say goodbye to two of those dynamic duos. During the premiere.
Such are the perils of this accelerated, 4-week season of "DWTS." But on the plus side, Olympic figure skaters make darn good ballroom dancers—on the sliding reality-TV scale, at least—and since no fewer than three of them took to the ballroom floor last night, we were treated to a highly entertaining show.
Our Rippon obsession is so real. And that means that in the days since the "DWTS" cast announcement, our minds have been busy imagining all the routines we know Adam and Jenna could slay. Here are 5 numbers that'd totally impress the judges. ("DWTS" producers: You're welcome.)
