So gorgeous!! Tried to get “the kiss” but I wasn’t quick enough.
She’s so darn cute…and what a perfect time to post! Great stuff with Derek too….they SING and everything. I just died and went to heaven!
Wow, feast your eyes on the new pics below! Last night, Derek Hough performed at Goldie Hawn’s inaugural ‘Love In For Kids’ benefiting the Hawn Foundation’s MindUp program transforming children’s lives for greater success at Ron Burkles Green Acres Estate in Beverly Hills, California. Note how Kate Hudson was there. He also danced with Sharna Burgess and some of the other pros from Dancing With The Stars. Beautiful! You can see loads of pictures at Getty Images.
ETA: According to Rick Ferarri, they danced to “Proud Mary” by Ike & Tina Turner. Also, if you visit Melissa McCarty’s Instagram, you can view some video of Derek and Sharna dancing. Thanks to Elmari for the heads up!
ETA2: The Daily Mail has pictures and a story about last night.
ETA3: Getty Images has posted a video too. Thanks to DWTSgossip for the find.
ETA4: Zimbio has a bunch of the photos as well. ~Heidi
Well, this is interesting. Only Beth and Alfonso got 30 seconds added to their Jives because they were so short the first time. That means they HAVE to come up with new choreo, although everyone was probably doing that anyway. The song stays the same.
Note: We’re about 90 percent sure on the song. Check PureDWTS – it’s possible that we have Sadie and Beth reversed, but considering the other song, we don’t really think so.
Bethany and Derek
Jive (Song: “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift )
Freestyle (Song: “Revolution” by Diplo )
Then again…Derek WAS playing Super Mario Brothers earlier in the week…but surely not. That’s got to be Mark and Sadie, right??

Derek has written his new blog at TV Guide and it’s a goodie as always. He gives some teasers on he and Bethany’s Freestyle. Note that their “jive” is the “Judges Choice” dance.
With the freestyle, I feel like I’ve covered a lot of bases before and it’s like what’s next? It’s a sense of trying not to do something over and over again. I did the stripped-down contemporary with Kellie already. I’ve done the upbeat stuff. You can go with heart or a fun, lighthearted dance or something completely serious. With Bethany, I’m trying to figure out what the right thing for her is. What are her strengths and what’s going to make her shine? So I’ve settled on telling her story. It starts off slowly and lyrically with beautiful shapes and beautiful lines. There will be other dancers as the dance builds to show her Motavators behind her. It signifies her life and strength. She’s created her own brand and her own career — her own everything, really. When I look back at the season, I look back at the moments that showcase how tough and fierce she is, like the Argentine tango and paso doble. It’s strong and it’s a big song, like Inception. It’ll be like Hans Zimmer is there!
The judges picked the jive, which was our first dance, for us to redo. We’re adding 30 seconds and tweaking some things. I’m glad they picked something from early in the season because you can definitely see the growth in Bethany. We feel good so far. We’ll have a fusion dance on Tuesday, but none of us know what’s going on with that yet.
More at TV Guide including his thoughts on the other finalists and Tommy Chong.
Bethany was interviewed by Ryan Seacrest about Dancing With The Stars. What a doll! Thanks to Jill for the heads up!
ETA: Here is more! Derek joins them too….
When you think of Derek and Bethany, what words would you use to describe them…especially after seeing these new pictures and video below from DancingABC and Seventeen Magazine? I think of #LetLoveRule #LightUpTheWorld #Power #Depth #Fun #Joy !! Three more days and counting. Let’s send our positive power and thoughts to this beautiful couple as they prepare for Monday!! Derek and Bethany, we are with you all the way!!
