(USA TODAY) -- Goodbye, fog machine. Goodbye, shirtless rumbas. Goodbye, perfectly timed biceps flexing.

"I'm done dancing," Maks Chmerkovskiy dropped on the ladies on "The View" on Tuesday. "I feel like it's time." Holy smokes. Time for what? Time to date Jennifer Lopez on the regular? Because those dating rumors are still en fuego, after the dancer recently attended Lopez's 45th birthday bash in Southampton. (The Daily Mail says they've hit a few clubs together recently, too.)

It's really that he's changed, he says. "When I came back to the show, it was not the same — I was different, probably," Maks explained of the last time he left the show, in February 2013. "When I came back, I saw this amazing talent … I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better. I was taking up a huge spot."

As we all know, Maks and Meryl Davis won the Mirror Ball trophy (his first) this past season. Us Weekly thinks there's a chance he could return to the show as a judge. Until we know more, revel in his glittery triumph, and his last showmance, one more time.
