TV Line Reviews the Hairspray Live! Soundtrack, including Derek Hough’s Corny Collins

I’m sure many more reviews will follow, but this one from TV Line kinda encapsulated the reaction I saw today on twitter: “Derek Hough can sing!!!??!?!”

Um, duh. Long time followers/admirers/lovers of Derek have known that not only does he dance and choreograph, but he sings, acts, and plays multiple musical instruments. And he’s a hell of a photographer and artist as well. AND he’s directed a music video!! There aren’t enough fingers on one hand to describe the “threat” Derek is. 🙂 I knew this man was a massive talent before most of today’s fans even knew he existed. Okay, I’ve had wine and I’m very, very tired after a long work day. I’m delirious. 😉 Here’s a little excerpt of the album review from TV Line. I expect to see a lot more in the coming days.

* Derek Hough can sing! You’d think I’d know better than to doubt the pipes of a Hough, especially after Julianne’s killer performance in Grease: Live, but I’m just not that evolved. So imagine my delight upon hearing Derek’s rock-solid performance of “The Nicest Kids in Town,” “(It’s) Hairspray” and…

Derek Hough Talks to Parade Magazine about “Hairspray Live!”

This is a nice little interview with Derek from Parade on Hairspray and Julianne’s example. 🙂

What’s it like living in the world of Hairspray

It’s amazing. It really is. I was going to say toxic because of all the [hairspray] fumes … I’m just kidding. It’s amazing. It’s the sets, the songs, the cast… It’s just amazing. It’s a kaleidoscope of joy.

It’s almost cartoon-like with the hair and the costumes, and the make-up, everything – at least for the nicest kids, I should say, for Corny, it’s like a doll.  I was like, “Y’all put on a lot of make-up here.” But when you look at it, it’s like, “Okay it’s appropriate.” It makes sense for his role because you definitely get into the character, for sure.

What it’s like living in the world of [choreographer] Jerry Mitchell?

It’s great. For me, I’ve been just watching and learning. I think Jerry’s so great. He’s so fun to work with, so positive and he’s very in tune with the storytelling of it. He’s not just about the movements, the dancing. He’s very much in there with “hey make sure you do this because it tells the story in this way.”

But I’ve also been watching, too, because it’s on my bucket list to choreograph a Broadway show eventually, so I’ve been observing and seeing how he does it. He’s a veteran. He’s very accomplished, so it’s been great.

“Hairspray Live” Interviews And Media With Derek Hough, Neil Meron, And More

Below are some fun ‘Hairspray Live’ interviews with the cast on Press day including Derek. The reporter is cracking me up….

Also, Neil Meron chats about producing “Hairspray Live” in this interview. He doesn’t mention Derek specifically, but, he talks on the opening number and how special it will be with all the dancers, etc. See why below…

Also, the Salt Lake Tribute has a special story up on Derek (with quotes from past interviews). Yes, his hometown is excited. Here’s a little take. Be sure to read the link for more.

While American TV viewers know Utah native Derek Hough primarily from his work on “Dancing With the Stars,” he’s not a newcomer to musical theater.

“I actually moved to London when I was 12 years old and went to a theater arts college,” said Hough, who attended the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts for six years. “And I did a lot of West End [productions]. I did plays and musicals out there.”

Hough has a prominent role in NBC’s production of “Hairspray Live!” He stars as Corny Collins, the suave host of an “American Bandstand”-like teen dance show who backs efforts to integrate his show in the early 1960s.

“And I think this Corny is going to dance a little bit more,” the “Dancing With the Stars” veteran said with a smile. “A little bit more — not a lot more.”
