The “Dancing with the Stars” semifinals for season 23 take place on Monday night. Check out a preview below, courtesy of “Good Morning America.”

“GMA” sent weather anchor and former “DWTS” contestant Ginger Zee to the set of the ballroom competition, where she got a behind-the-scenes look at preparations for the penultimate round. Naturally, that included reuniting with former partner Val Chmerkovskiy, and discussing his current run on the show with frontrunner Laurie Hernandez. The pro amusingly said, “This is by far my favorite partner, at least in the last year.”

More seriously, though, Chmerkovskiy further said of Hernandez, “You know, we’re almost there. I want her to win. I want her to lift up that trophy and be proud of herself.” Of course, there’s a few other pairings standing in their way.”

When Zee asked Calvin Johnson to show off some of his routine, partner Lindsay Arnold interjected, “Well, he doesn’t have his Velcro shirt to rip off. That’s a teaser right there.” The former NFL player admitted his body feels like he’s “halfway through a football season,” he wants to win “so bad.”

And though Zee didn’t get to talk to him, she deemed James Hinchcliffe another contestant to watch. Check out the video below!
