But Mark blew me away with his performance!!! I was very surprised with his falsetto, and he nailed all of the songs!!! I had chills when he sang “My Eyes Adored You” !!! “Sherry”, “Walk Like a Man”, “oh, what a Night”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Working My Way Back to You”, so many hits! Oh course, there were the dance moves!!!!

Derek Hough Blogs Team Dance and The Charleston…and the Chalsa!

I just love his blogs – always chock full of tidbits of interesting info. My personal opinion on the Nappytabs thing that Vogue posted about earlier? MOVE Live on Tour! That is NOT insider info, just a guess. Anyway, here’s an excerpt from Derek’s blog, but be sure to read the whole thing as he also talks Mark and Hairspray!!

This week is going to be pretty fun. It’s Eras Week and we have the Charleston. I had a really busy day Wednesday. I was doing another project for something else all day, so I wasn’t able to see Marilu, but I went in last night and choreographed the routine. After I get done with Hairspray rehearsals today, I’m going to go over and rehearse with her. So to answer the question you’re probably thinking: No, we haven’t gone through the whole routine yet! Tonight will be the first time. I think it will be fine. I’m trying to stay ahead of the game and pre-plan so that way tonight when we finally rehearse, we can go full at it. I put a little surprise in there as well.

Oh yeah, there’s a team dance too! We’re on Team Future with Laurie and Val, Terra and Sasha, and Jana and Gleb. We’re going to do a full rehearsal tomorrow or Saturday. We have a really weird song, but we figured out a narrative. There are still things to create and figure out. It’s things that you think in your mind might be brilliant but when you try it, you’re like, “Uh, maybe we should try something else.” I would say right now, there’s some stuff in our heads and we have to make them a reality when we get together.
