Val Chmerkovskiy led Kelly Monaco to third place on "Dancing With the Stars: All Stars." Monaco returned the favor by leading her partner to her daytime stomping ground, "General Hospital." Chmerkovskiy won't get flirty with Monaco in Port Charles, however. Instead, he'll get into the boxing ring with Sonny (Maurice Bernard) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) and connect with Monaco's onscreen mom, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).

AJ approaches Sonny at the gym to talk family on Dec. 10, but "Dancing With the Stars" fans might get distracted by the shirtless boxer on the scene. Chmerkovskiy will be playing Sonny and Shawn's sparring partner.


"On my way to @GeneralHospital and its not cause @kellymonaco1 is working," Chmerkovskiy tweeted when he shot his scenes in early November. "#DaytimeEmmy here I come lol #thrilled #honored"

While Chmerkovskiy won't get into the ring with his "DWTS" partner Monaco during the guest stint, she was on hand to serve as acting coach as Val prepared for his scenes. After the shoot on Nov. 7, she was impressed with his work.


"So proud of @iamValC," she tweeted. "Had his 1st day of shooting on the set of @GeneralHospital... from #DWTS to #GH :)"

Nancy Lee Grahn also seemed impressed.

"Me and my young stud," she tweeted when "General Hospital" released the photos today. 


"General Hospital" airs weekdays on ABC.
