Derek Hough Teases “Potentially Dangerous” Dance Planned With Bethany Mota (New Blog)

Derek has written a new blog for TV Guide and he’s teasing the heck out of us. This is going to so cool. Be sure to read the full blog at the link.

I’m super proud of Bethany. I thought she did a great job. It’s tough going second-to-last on the first show. You spend the whole night waiting and watching everyone else go, but she handled her nerves well and I’m really happy with the way it went. I think you can see potential for growth for her. She actually has a really good frame and hopefully you’ll see that on Monday.

We have the foxtrot this week. It’s almost there. We have something fun planned that I’ve had in my mind for a while and now felt like the right time to do it. It involves using an instrument and we’re going to have some cool effects on it. It’s potentially dangerous, but it’s cool when it’s executed properly. I don’t normally take these kinds of risks in Week 2, but I figured why not? Try something new.

And bring this on too Derek!!

I am in Nashville right now shooting another episode. It’s been awesome here and working with Hayden Panettiere. Can’t wait for you all to see it!

Thursday “Move” Throwback: “A Heart Full Of Love” (A Guest Blog By Andrea)

Would like to be transformed back to this summer to the “Move Live On Tour” and Derek’s “Taking The Lead” Book Signing Tour”? If so, read on for a fascinating and fantastic read as Andrea takes us on her summer adventures! What a treat. You will love this! ((((THANK YOU ANDREA!)))) You rock it!!

A heart full of love

Hi, my name is Andrea and I have blogged here before. Just a little reminder. I am German, English is not my first language, so please apologize any mistakes.

Certainly Derek or Julianne will never read this but anyway I want to thank them for doing this tour, for going out and meeting the fans, for the way they did this and for all of the special little and big moments I had the luck to experience. You have no idea how much it means to me.

I met Derek last year at BWAT and I took the DWTS at sea cruise in January where I met him again. So when I heard ofthe tour it was a no-brainer. Every year I meet with friends in Los Angeles, usually the last weekend of July. When I checked the tour dates I was overjoyed to find out that Derek and Julianne would be in California in July and that they would be doing three shows in the Bay Area, only ten days before my scheduled plans for LA. So that would be the place to go. I got two ultimate VIP tickets and one regular VIP ticket.

Starting out in Santa Rosa, with ulitmate VIP
I was a little nervous. Thanks to PDH and “MOVE live on Tour fans” I pretty much knew what to expect. I read all the blogs and Continue reading

Derek Hough and Bethany Mota…and DWTS Week 1 on Afterbuzz TV!!

I love Afterbuzz and generally enjoy watching the whole show – haven’t had a chance to yet, but I will. The gang discusses Derek and Bethany’s dance at 46 minute mark. They are 50/50 on the routine. Ignore Serge – he’s got friends that lead him to be rather dismissive of Derek and his talent. He’s a bit green around the gills, if you ask me. Love Anna and Kristyn though. And Suri, most of the time. ;-)

Derek Hough talks to OK! Magazine After DWTS 19 Week 1

There’s not too much new here, but since Kaitlyn sent it, I figured I’d post it. :-) From OK! Magazine:

“That hair was amazing,” he laughed on the press line after the show. “I’m growing it back out. I was 21 or something like that. I looked young, didn’t I? Or I’ve just aged a lot since then. It was pretty dramatic. That was really embarrassing. But you know what it was? It was actually nice to see not where I came from but how far I’ve come and kind of reflecting on that and that moment of going, ‘Wow, look at all that’s happened since then.’ I feel very, very grateful. It was actually a really good moment.”

As far as receiving any favoritism during judging from sister Julianne Hough this season on Dancing with the Stars, Derek says it’s a non-issue.
