A few notes and reminders. Emmy Nominations are next Thursday, July 18th – I’ll be up bright and early watching to see if Derek gets a nomination – watch this space.
As previously reported, don’t forget Derek is performing with Cal Phil July 27 AND July 28th – I know there are a couple Derek fans going, so I expect we might get some pictures if everyone asks nicely. Cal Phil is at Santa Anita on the 27th and the Disney Concert Hall on the 28th. Derek tweeted the below picture of the Disney venue. He also responded to a fan with an affirmative about the 27th. How this affects Dizzy Feet and his participation (if any) I have no idea.
TMZ caught Derek out on the town (and tipsy?) and got this rather amusing video.
Seems that TMZ caught him outside the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, judging by these photos from Fashion 24/7. Not a fan of this look, but of course he’s cute.
According to Jenna on Twitter, Derek is going to be performing with Ballroom with a Twist at the Wolf Trap next month. Like she says, it appears he was just added, because the site to buy tickets has a pic but no bio. Interesting. Maybe Jenna will take pictures? Please?
ETA: Derek has also been added to the New England stop of Ballroom with a twist – thanks to Cath for the tweet.
Last, but certainly not least – Nice review of Someone Somewhere Tonight the music video from Taste of Country:
The video is simple, but it’s so aesthetically pleasing and visually arresting, thanks to the bright, natural lighting and the movement of Pickler and Hough’s bodies. The scenes that find Pickler alone, sitting on the wooden floor, are also captivating, since she is so vulnerable and beautiful.
The country songstress could have easily done a slice-of-life video featuring clips related to the scenarios in the lyrics, but that would have been too easy and too predictable. Instead, she opted to do that other thing we now know she does incredibly well: dance.
