This is a site for fans of Derek Hough. We try our best to compile all news, pictures, music and videos about and by Derek – if you find something you think we’ve missed, feel free to contact us. If you are a new fan of Derek’s and want to learn more about him, the “Accomplishments” and “Biography” buttons to the right (and above) contain pages of what we know (or think we know). 😉
Also to the right is a music section where you can find music by Ballas Hough, Derek’s band, and songs that Derek has danced to on Dancing with the Stars. Complete with iTunes links.
If you want to see old posts, there are two ways: 1) by the media buttons to the right, or; 2) by month under the “Derek Archives” buttons also on the right-hand side of this page.
When I do a real throwback Thursday to the beginning of Derek’s time on DWTS, I’m shocked by how much he’s changed and grown over the years – and I’m not just talking about the size of his body. So thin then!! As much as I appreciate his growth and the tremendous talent that he’s evolved into since season 5 of DWTS, I must say, I miss the very traditional (with a tiny bit of edgy) ballroom he did back in the day. His musicality, the way he choreographs to the music was already there, and you can see there at the edges that there’s a hint of what he’ll become peeking out. Even without whipping out genius like the futuristic Paso Doble, in Season 5 he changed this game. And only part of it was the “it” factor that he’s been blessed with. 😉
I think this might actually be my favorite Jennie dance…
Hayley’s back and Derek is glad. 🙂 I feel very guilty about posting this little glimpse of them because I am fully supportive of Derek’s right to keep all that on the DL…but I do like seeing him happy. And if he would give us some new info on what’s going on with his career, we wouldn’t be (or *I* wouldn’t be) posting about his personal life.
There are certain videos I go back to when the world seems very bleak and all kinds of bad and/or disheartening things are happening. This is one of them. That Amy (and others like her) maintains such positivity and hope in trying situations gives me hope for the rest of us.
How much did I love Lil Kim? Very much. She was so surprising to all of us in the Derek fandom – so very different from what we expected when we heard she was his partner. And she was surprising to Derek as well. And Derek was so skinny then!! He almost passed out on the night they were eliminated and they had one of the sexier photo shoots in the history of the show (TV Guide). This is one of their great dances.
