He’s one classy guy, our Derek! He pretty much covers all the bases here, and doesn’t fault anyone for anything that happened. From TVGuide (Click the link to read the whole thing):
Bethany was pretty upset about it afterward. How could you not be? Her eyes were welling up with tears and she looked like she was about to have a breakdown. I told her, “Listen, it’s over. It’s in the past. It doesn’t exist anymore. We have to move on and give our all in the freestyle.” And she did! What’s funny is later, she told me, “It’s good I messed up the jive because it fueled me for the freestyle.” It gave her an extra oomph. She totally killed it. I’m so proud of her. I’m glad that is the last dance people will see of her on the show because it captured her journey and who she is — this awesome, fearless, revolutionary young woman.
Standing up there for the results, I don’t think either of us were surprised we were eliminated. I think this was a really competitive and close final that we were prepared for anything. I think some people are surprised because people assumed that because Bethany has a lot of followers, we’d make it. But that’s not the full picture. There are so many other factors at play, and it’d be erroneous to assume that every single one of your followers and fans will be voting every week — not just for Bethany, but everyone.
I guess it’s really over. :::sniff:::
Thanks to JC Rubio for the fun backstage coverage of Dancing With The Stars last night which includes DEREK! Look how he ramps up the audience. Priceless!
Lots of great coverage on Good Morning America with the finalists today including with Derek and Bethany!! There were some “Nashville” mentions and Derek and Bethany danced their Jive. Below are some photos from @GMA and video. They will also be on The View today. So, be sure to tune if you can. We’ll try and get some video up of that too later!
What a night last night on Dancing With The Stars. As I type this, Derek and Bethany are on their way to New York City for the Good Morning America After Party. Derek posted the instagram above with the words, “Another one in the bag ! Incredible season with incredible humans . #DWTS #biggestdanceshowontheplanet”. Isn’t that the truth?!! They gave us so many #Awwwwmoments and some we will never forget.
So, we’ll have more coverage of Derek and Bethany on Good Morning a little later. For now, don’t miss seeing some beautiful pictures at ABC7. And how about these HQ pics of Derek and Bethany taken last night courtesy of Adam Taylor? Aren’t they breathtaking?! You can view more photos of last night’s show at Getty Images.
We’ll get this whole interview from the producers tomorrow, hopefully.
So, it’s night 2 of the Dancing With The Stars finale!! Here is Derek in the opening number…
Fabulous!! And how about this reunion? Derek and Amy Purdy talked with DWTS Live Access. We hope to have some video of this interview soon. Aren’t they cute?
Also, guess what? Derek and Bethany won the Encore dance and it was magnificent and full of power again!!!
Derek and Bethany also performed their Paso Doble! They were out of this world breathtaking!
ETA: And here is their encore from last night…
Yeah, I was going to go back and update each post with international versions and then I realized how freakin’ far behind Vogue I had gotten. Note that the People interview is in two pieces – had a lot of trouble with that video.
The fun continues …and see, it never stops! To see some new photos of Derek and Bethany after the show last night, see Just Jared Jr. By the way, doesn’t Derek have a hot taste for cardigans?
