Derek Hough Helping, Directing, Choreographing, And Starring In Michael Buble’s “I Believe In You” Video

Entertainment Tonight reported on Michael Buble and how he backed out hosting the BRIT Awards in London next month to care for his cancer-stricken son. In this report, Derek is mentioned as helping him and that he’s directing, choreographing, and starring in Michael’s new “Believe You” video. You can read more here or watch the video below. Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael and his family. He couldn’t be in better hands than with Derek.

While the GRAMMY winner is staying focused on his family, he is getting support from Derek Hough. Hough, who met Buble in 2009 when he performed on Dancing With the Stars, is directing, choreographing and starring in the music video for Buble’s new single, “I Believe in You.”

According to Derek’s snap chats today, he started “Day 1” of a shoot. We’re not sure what shoot, but, it sounds fun and the cutest kids were seen with Derek. Jennie sent us some fun photos which you can view below. When Miss Heidi gets back, hopefully, she can get us some video footage for us.

ETA: Here are Derek’s instastory and snapchat from today – feel fairly certain this is the Michael Buble thing, but with Derek one can never be sure. 😉

Derek Hough Starts Production on “World of Dance”!!

And so it begins!! The next great creative adventure, “World of Dance”!! Great photo from Derek.

ETA: Vogue here. Below are some photos and video from the taping. I saw this same guy posting on his experience elsewhere. He said the taping was “cool” even though it ran late. Once it got started, everything went easy and smooth. He also said the set looked amazing and the judges had a cool vibe with each other. He also said the contestants were incredible. After each performance the judges gave a review and scored them from 1-100 points. To move forward you have to score 80 or better and it’s based on the average from all three judges. Each judge also had a power save option that they can each use once. He really enjoyed it. The judges and Jenna Dewan Tatum were are all very passionate about dancing and it worked. Fascinating stuff. I have a feeling this show is going to be a huge success.
