Derek Hough Odds and Ends – July 12

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.

Disney Concert Hall

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.

    Ahh thanks DM and Heidi! I just bought my ticket!! Hopefully I can get enough that I could write something up on seeing him! So beyond excited to see him live finally!

  6. DW says:

    Thanks Heidi for letting us know about Derek doing “Ballroom with a Twist”. He is listed as a cast member for the New England venue as well. Just got a ticket! So excited!!!

  7. Kaitlyn says:

    Lots of good stuff, thanks Heidi! Ballroom with a twist is coming to the Boston area on August 8th and 9th. They don’t have anybody listed (not even Anna or Tristan) so I’m debating whether or not to buy a ticket in the off chance that he will continue on with them from VA. Decisions, decisions…

    Oh, I’m so happy for you @Susan & @Lisa G! Have fun, and if you can share pics or videos, please do. Thank you to those who shared info about our beloved D-man!

    Thanks Heidi for the update and to Jenna in letting us know that Derek will be at Wolf Trap. I live in the area and just got a ticket. So pumped. Hopefully I can take pictures!

      Hi Lisa used to live in No.Va. Been to Wolf Trap lots…such fun happy for you!

    • Sara says:

      Hi Lisa! I’m going as well :) My sister lives in the area, and I’m visiting her that week, so we just got our tickets. Thanks for the heads-up, Heidi!

    I’m going on the 27th. It’s not a typical “concert” set-up. It’s like the Golden Globes, everyone’s at tables, you can order dinner in advance. I’ve been to Santa Anita once and remember thinking what a beautiful setting it was for a racetrack. So it should be an interesting event. I, of course, just keep thinking that I will be in the same time and space as Derek. Hard to believe.

    • JoAnna says:

      Hi Susan am going on 27th too!!! Flying to LA to see D. Luv that it’s outdoors…gonna be a special evening for sure :)

      • Susan says:

        Hi JoAnna — Where are you flying from? Our seats are Section CC, Table# 7. It would be a hoot to say hello! I’ll be the one with a mass of brown curls on my head.
