Here’s the little bit with Derek. If you want to see the whole video, check it out on youtube. Very cool to see Derek included with all these notable people.
Well, I don’t remember seeing this before!! E! printed Emmy Winner Portaits from Emmy Magazine and Derek’s is just GORGEOUS!! Thanks to Tracy g for the find!!
Here’s another fun little treat (As always, be sure to click on the little box on the bottom right that says “view full size”):
And what a great week it’s been!! Started it off with a great Emmy win, followed up lots of Emmy party craziness and then with a great night of dancing – just all kinds of fun. And Derek seems….happy.
Derek and Amber being weird and funny…

Derek spent some time in the recording studio this week working on one of his songs. Hmmmm….
If this doesn’t get him the win, there is no justice. He’s never been better than this.
A few notes and reminders. Emmy Nominations are next Thursday, July 18th – I’ll be up bright and early watching to see if Derek gets a nomination – watch this space.
As previously reported, don’t forget Derek is performing with Cal Phil July 27 AND July 28th – I know there are a couple Derek fans going, so I expect we might get some pictures if everyone asks nicely. Cal Phil is at Santa Anita on the 27th and the Disney Concert Hall on the 28th. Derek tweeted the below picture of the Disney venue. He also responded to a fan with an affirmative about the 27th. How this affects Dizzy Feet and his participation (if any) I have no idea.
TMZ caught Derek out on the town (and tipsy?) and got this rather amusing video.
Seems that TMZ caught him outside the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, judging by these photos from Fashion 24/7. Not a fan of this look, but of course he’s cute.
According to Jenna on Twitter, Derek is going to be performing with Ballroom with a Twist at the Wolf Trap next month. Like she says, it appears he was just added, because the site to buy tickets has a pic but no bio. Interesting. Maybe Jenna will take pictures? Please?
ETA: Derek has also been added to the New England stop of Ballroom with a twist – thanks to Cath for the tweet.
Last, but certainly not least – Nice review of Someone Somewhere Tonight the music video from Taste of Country:
He went to the party and he looks fab. Thanks to Dee for sending me the picture. Hopefully there will be more later.
A reminder of Derek’s nominated dances:
What was he nominated for LAST year, you ask?? JIVE!!! One week after Julianne had her appendix removed.
So, based on something I said last night about Emmy’s, and Lisa’s response to my comment disagreeing with my selection of the Paso with Chelsie, I thought I would post this little guessing game. Of course, the problem with this game is the possibility (shocking as it seems to me) that he doesn’t get nominated for something. There is another problem with this game – the dances eligible for an Emmy had to have aired between June 1, 2009 and May 31, 2010. That sounds all well and good, right? But in looking at the rules, you actually have to submit by April 30, 2010. Fine for taped shows – they can know it will air before May 31st, but still easily submit it by April 30th. Since DWTS is a live show, some of Derek’s best dances from this season are eligible, but impossible to submit because they haven’t been performed yet. Anyway, I was in the process of getting depressed until I read the submission/eligibility rules in a little more detail and I *think* I found a loophole.
That gave me hope. After all, if his management is as crafty as I am, they’d submit ANY great dance and then replace that submission with a better dance before the deadline of May 31st. But then I read this again:
So, I think the deadline is May 14 – I’m assuming the choreography individual achievement category is going to require a DVD submission, right? Also, Lisa was technically correct in her comment that he can only submit one – UNLESS he’s part of a team or teams. Say, if Chelsie submitted the Paso with Derek as part of her team, then Derek submitted by himself for one of his other eligible dances. I think that’s how it works. Wanna read these rules for yourself because you’re a dork like me or just bored (also like me) —-> Emmy Submission Rules 2010
So, assuming that Derek’s people know the rules and that Derek DID submit an episode or episodes, what ARE the possible submissions?? Well, that Paso Doble with Chelsie, for one. Unfortunately, both the 50′s Paso AND the Foxtrot were performed on May 10 – technically eligible, but too late for submission – early enough for an edited submission though. Same goes for that fantastic argentine tango. They’d have to be on top of it for sure. Let’s assume they are.
Here are the videos that I think are probably more than worthy:
From Season 9, The Futuristic Paso Doble
With all the fantastic dances Derek produces in Season 10, I think that any potential from Season 9 is limited to that Futuristic Paso. I also think that the execution of that dance isn’t as crisp (as much as I loved it) or as difficult as some of those he produced in Season 10. That’s one of the reasons DWTS doesn’t get as many Emmy nominations as SYTYCD does – amateurs are dancing in the former and the execution likely affects the nominations – or even the submissions. On to Season 10, which is rich with potential submissions.
The Pretty Woman Tango -
The Quickstep – keep in mind that Emmy voters don’t care about DWTS rules. It’s about choreography
The beautiful Foxtrot
The dramatic 50′s Paso Doble
The dances that were unable to make the submission deadline? The Argentine Tango, the Prince Cha Cha, the final Rumba, the Freestyle, and the last Jive. Assuming that the Paso with Chelsie is submitted, which of the above would YOU pick as the second submission?? Or have I missed a dance that you would choose?? Tell me!!
