Dancing's Derek Hough: Bethany Had a Breakthrough!

Hey guys!

Sorry for being MIA last week. It got a bit hectic traveling to and from Australia. I'll try to make it up to you!

Australia was awesome. It's crazy just to go there for a couple of days, not to mention to go there and just dance! I thought our tango went great! I'm really proud of Bethany. The package played up the stress and lack of time, but we weren't dealing with it negatively. The routine was very last-minute, but I feel like when you have less time, you get more done. There's a sense of urgency. You're like, "Let's get it done." When I was competing, I would learn more and get more ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: I Hope I Don't Let Sadie Down!

Hey guys,

Thanks for your votes!

If you haven't heard, my switch-up partner is Sadie! Bethany is with Mark, so we had a straight swap! I've been staying at Sadie's family farm in Louisiana and it's amazing here. We've been riding four-wheelers and having a good time. We have the Charleston and Sadie's doing great so far. She's a really terrific dancer and she's not afraid to try things. I think she's been ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: We Have a "Really Special Routine" Planned

Hey guys,

Thanks for voting for us!

I can't believe we got a 40! I don't know if a perfect score has ever been given out so early in the season before — and two of them too — but it's pretty wild. I was very, very happy with our dance. Bethany did a fantastic job. It's funny — before we went on, I kept saying to her, "You're going to be great. You're going to be great. Don't be nervous." And the thing was, I was nervous! I get nervous ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: Bethany's Ankle Is Not Doing Great

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your votes!

So you saw what I mean by "potentially dangerous," right? After Bethany injured her ankle, I was like, "Oh, of all weeks," but we went for it and got through it, and I'm really proud of Bethany.

This week, we're doing the jazz to "Singin' in the Rain." My very first dance performance ever was to "Singing in the Rain" and I was about 3 or 4 years old. I don't remember it at all. It's on video somewhere. It's me running around the stage with an umbrella. I was the only boy ...

Dancing with the Stars: Who Got Sent Home?

We're back with another Dancing with the Stars results show, before theTuesday edition retreats back into its glittery cave next week. A quick early observation: Can someone please inform Sadie Robertson that the camera can and will pan to her at any given opportunity? She's got a baaaad case of resting bitchface. End rant.

Tom and Erin waste no time in getting to the first set of results. read more
