Dancing's Derek Hough: There's a New Energy This Season

Derek Hough

Hey everyone,

I'm back! Hope you all had a great summer.

I can't believe it's that time of the year again. Everything's going good so far. Amber's been doing great. She's got a great personality, great charisma and she can move! It's a different dynamic for me and I'm psyched about this season.

A lot of people have asked me why I came back this season. I wanted to be part ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: This Season Was Very Special

Derek Hough

Hey guys,

Can you believe it? I can't believe it! Thanks so much for your support and votes. I honestly am still in shock. It's pretty crazy.

I'm super-proud of Kellie. To me, what's more important than winning is just the relief knowing that we did good and that I gave her the right thing to help her shine. That's the thing that ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: We Feel Good About Our Pieces

Derek Hough

Hey guys,

How are you? Ready for the finale?

I feel like we're ready. We're as ready as we'll ever be. We definitely put in the hours. We had 12-to-14-hour days every day. I had a little scare yesterday. My neck started to do a weird spasm. I'm trying to forget about it — mind over matter. It's not as bad as it was last time, but it's there. There are some moves that I'm doing in our freestyle ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: I Don't Take Len's Comments Personally

Derek Hough

Hey everyone!

How's it going? Thanks for your votes last week!

We have the Argentine tango and the flamenco, or the "Flaming Co." We haven't really started the flamenco yet, but we have some of the Argentine tango done. I want to make some tweaks to it though. I think I need to simplify the choreography in certain areas to allow Kellie to just dance it. It's like the opposite of the team dance ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: It's Hard to Do Simple Dances on the Show

Derek Hough

Hey guys,

How are you? Thanks for your votes!

I am exhausted! I have no idea what time it is or where I am. I've been following Kellie on tour this week and I'm just wiped. We've been traveling for 10 hours as of now and I think we're in Illinois or Ohio. I really have no clue! We don't get back to L.A. until Sunday, so we have one more day of this. I traveled with her the second week, but this ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: "The Team Dance Is in Shambles"

Derek Hough

Hey everyone!

How's it going? Thanks for voting for us!

This week is another crazy, jam-packed one for us. We have our regular dance and the team dance, and I'm not going to lie — the team dance is in shambles right now. We're not in good shape. We had ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: I'm Having Choreographer's Block

Derek Hough

Hey everyone!

How are you?

Thanks for all your comments this week. I'm so glad you enjoyed the routine with Brilynn. It was truly an honor to dance with her. I was overcome with emotion throughout the whole thing. We don't see those video packages before we dance, so I was just a viewer for a second. Her story and she herself are so incredible. Brilynn really emulates what I ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: We're Surprised We Got the Top Score

Derek Hough

Hey there!

How's everyone doing? Thanks for all your votes!

I'm actually not with Kellie right now. She's in Las Vegas, so we're losing a day and a half of rehearsals! I didn't go with her because I'm working on a special performance for Tuesday's results show. It's with someone awesome and I'm really psyched about it. It's not a "known" guest, but it's someone with amazing spirit. I hope you ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: I'm Really Impressed By Kellie

Derek Hough

Hey there!

Thanks for your support and votes!

We've gotten so many comments about our jazz and we're so happy you enjoyed it. I thought it came out great. When I watched it back, I was even surprised by some of it. Kellie was really good. Her control and extensions are insane. People with dance experience, who've trained for years, can do that. You look at her and you think she must have dance experience. She doesn't, but she has dance ability ...
