In this series, we will study the 16 couples on Dancing with the Stars season 9 and predict who has the best chances for success, and who is doomed to humiliation.

Who is Mya?
Mya is a Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum artist who is no stranger to dance. Other than her three top 10 singles, five full-length albums, she has starred in the musical film Chicago. She also appeared in the very memorable music video for Lady Marmalade, alongside Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Lil Kim. She founded the Mya Arts and Tech Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to provide opportunities for disadvantaged youth via arts and technology education.



Dmitry Chaplin's record
Dmitry hasn't had much luck on Dancing with the Stars. This is only his second season and her debut hasn't exactly been fruitful, when her original partner Jewel was replaced because of injury by Holly Madison.

My Prediction: In the Finale
If you've seen the video of Lady Marmalade, you should know that Mya can dance. She really can. And on Dancing with the Stars, that's already a huge advantage. We haven't really seen much of Dmitry, though. But all in all, this partnership looks promising.
