So much for a reunion! The upcoming Dancing With the Stars 10th anniversary special is bringing back some of your favorite celebrities from the past decade of the reality competition. Unfortunately, five-time champion Derek Hough won’t be participating due to a last-minute injury, and fellow pro Sasha Farber is dancing in his place, Us Weekly has learned.


“He can’t dance tonight — hurt himself in rehearsals last night,” a show source told Us Weekly, and the prognosis isn’t looking good for Monday’s regular DWTS with partner Nastia Liukin, either. “Not sure if he can dance next Monday or not,” the source added.

Entertainment Tonight Interviews Derek Hough Before Injury On Dancing With The Stars – Video

Entertainment Tonight posted on Derek’s injury. They also interviewed him before the injury. More below including a video….

Just hours before the injury, the 29-year-old dancer even told ET that he was actually in better shape now than he has been in previous seasons.

“It’s funny, when I’m actually here [LA], by this [point in the] season, I’m normally a lot more sore, a lot more tired,” he admitted. “I think it’s because I’ve personally been taking care of myself so much more than I used to. I’m getting a cardio workout everyday doing the shows so I actually feel more in shape than I normally do at this point.”


No word yet on how Derek’s injury will affect his future on the show this season, but a source tells E! News he may have broken a toe, as well as severely sprained his ankle, suffering possible ligament damage. An MRI is reportedly scheduled for today to see just how serious the injury to his ankle is.

But Derek told ET on Monday that he’s used to performing “in pain.”

“When you’re used to pain, you know, someone’s like, ‘Oh my ankle hurts, or my… I don’t know why I did this, my boob hurts,’ but no, you get used to it, you have to be,” he shared. “You’re never 100 percent.”

ETA2: From Maria this morning.

ETA3: Here is what E News is reporting…

So how severe is Derek’s injury? A source exclusively tells us he broke his toe and severely sprained his ankle, with possible ligament damage. Our source adds that an MRI is schedule for today to see just how serious the injury to his ankle is.

Derek was rehearsing a special routine for the upcoming anniversary special with former partner Maria Menounos when he suffered the injury. And Maria tells E! News exclusively that Derek hurt his foot after he smashed it on a piece of equipment, and when he went to grab ice to put on it, he fell down the stairs, rolling his ankle. Fortunately, Maria was right behind him and helped Derek out before Mark took him to the hospital. Maria reposted Mark’s E.R. photo on Instagram, adding, “ugh Mark when I heard him scream I knew we were in trouble! #fingerscrossed #getbetterfast.”

Just before Derek’s injury, Maria almost suffered one as well, hitting her head against the dancefloor. Fortunately, she was fine, and posted a video of the scary moment on Instagram. “@menough is back….within minutes @derekhough already injuring me! Lol,” she wrote, adding the hashtags “#prayingforderek” and “#hopewecanstilldance.”

And is reporting Derek is out for tomorrow. Maybe this is good news, if they are only reporting tomorrow? ~Heidi has confirmed that five-time Dancing with the Stars winner Derek Hough will not appear in the April 22 performance of the Rockettes’ New York Spring Spectacular. According to E! Online, Hough sustained an injury during rehearsals for DWTS’ 10th Anniversary special. Taylor Frey will step in as Jack.

Frey’s Broadway credits include How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Finian’s Rainbow.

Derek Hough and Nastia Liukin – What are they Dancing Week 7 of DWTS Season 20??

Why, that would be the Charleston, according to our sources. :-)

Keep in mind they need to make it through to next week in order to do this dance. Scary thing is Tom commenting that there’s only 0.5% difference in votes between the bottom two. That illustrates how important it is to VOTE. The other reason to vote like crazy is that next week is DOUBLE ELIMINATION!! EEK!! Vote Vote Vote!!
