    Thank you for posting, Heidi. Derek’s RT brought me here, too! I live on the West Coast & am recording the show but need to get some sleep after a long nite of voting. Was praying I’d get to see this amazing young lady perform w/Derek before lights out tonite…and now I can’t stop watching & getting all choked up. So proud to be Derek’s fan, so proud of him, and beyond proud of Brillyn. Just…wow, wow, wow!

    Such a beautiful piece. I could feel the joy from Derek & Brilynn, and the audience too. Miss Heidi, I loved that Derek put your link to their dance in his twitter, “Such a special girl”. I just can’t stop watching their duet. This was the best birthday gift I could have ever asked for 🙂

    Aww, he was speechless and so emotional! This performance really touched my heart. He showcased her beautifully!a I’m so glad to be a fan of Derek’s as he continues making such beautiful, lifelong memories for the people he dances with and touching the heart of his fans in the process. Brilynn is a true inspiration. Love her passion and desire to dance which made this performance even more beautiful as we all know dance and performing runs through Derek’s veins. Loved it.

    Wow, Heidi, Derek’s RT brought me here! That’s fantastic!!

    We love you Derek!!

    Absolutely beautiful! Brilynn is such a beautiful dancer and Derek is such a caring individual, they just exuded joy when they were dancing. I was crying. Then when Derek was talking at the end I lost it again.

    This is one dance I will never forget.
