Derek Hough Video of the Day – February 22, 2018

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…

Awwww…poor little Romie. Make me sad, too, Derek. Hate seeing the babies in the cones, but it’s usually what’s best for them and it’s only temporary.

Derek Hough: A Day in the Life – February 19, 2018

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.

Derek Hough Video of the Day – February 16, 2018

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.

Derek Hough Video of the Day – February 15, 2018

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.
