Derek Hough Pictured At Made In America Festival

According to the Daily Mail, Derek attended the Made In America Festival in Los Angeles, California on Saturday. To see some photos, see this link. Just remember while reading that the Daily Mail assumes, sensationalizes, and knows nothing on Derek’s private life, but, the photos are nice and it’s nice to see him smiling, enjoying life, and having some time for himself. Thanks to Cath for the heads up!

Pure Derek Hough Question: What are you looking forward to the most about seeing….

A new season of Dancing With The Stars is upon us! Now that we know Derek is officially dancing again, what are you looking forward to the most about seeing Derek on the show again? Let your thoughts be heard in comments because, hey, you never know who might be reading.

Vogue: Oh, so many things, but, I’m especially looking forward to watching Derek’s “Fox” totem working a new partner again. Every season he has this special unique way (like a fox) of blending into his partners where he is ‘one’ with them. How will he do that this season? I’m also looking forward to all of Derek’s insight, deep thinking, genius, and creativity put into his choreography for his partner and in group numbers! I look forward to his music choices and what he picks for costuming (including shoes and hats) too. And the “passion”. Yes, all that wonderful, intense Derek passion again!

Heidi: Tight. Pants.

Vogue: Well, that too! lollll
