“I can’t wait for this moment!” Savchenko told Mr. Warburton magazine. “Last season when Johnny Weir got on the show I was like, ‘Johnny, you HAVE to be my partner,’ but they ended up not doing it. They’ve done it before in Australia with Courtney Act and in the U.K. with Nicola Adams and they were both amazing!”  

The Russian dancer added, “Of course, there is a strong male/female dynamic in dance, but if you have two men doing the same thing it would look awesome and be so fascinating. I would love to do it, but it would have to be with the right partner.”
