According to an ABC Press release, Derek Hough will be on Good Morning America for their Oscar broadcast on Monday, March 3rd (the day before the Dancing With The Stars cast announcement). Note how the release says Derek will be “dazzling the audience with his renowned choreography”. Also, all eyes on anything Derek might say about the new season of Dancing With The Stars if he’s interviewed about it? Note how former Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke will also be on the show to talk about the Oscar red carpet. Below is take from the link. Also, Heidi comments as well with her thoughts….
On Monday, March 3, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer, Josh Elliott and Ginger Zee will anchor live from Los Angeles, showcasing all the highlights, plus exclusive interviews with some of the celebration’s big winners. Multi-Grammy winning musician John Legend will perform live in our studio after singing at last night’s star-studded Governors Ball. “Dancing with the Stars” professional dancer Derek Hough will dazzle the audience with his renowned choreography. Additionally, Brooke Burke-Charvet will join the team with behind-the-scenes dish from the red carpet, plus the fashion experts will weigh in on the night’s red carpet hits and misses. Comedian DL Hughley brings us inside some of Hollywood’s exclusive after parties and model Camila Alves shows viewers how she got ready for her big night on the red carpet.
Heidi: I kinda sense a “let the audience down gently” moment. :-) Or perhaps an announcement of other kind? I can’t wait to find out.
ETA: Since our posts above, E Online is now reporting that their sources have told them Derek is returning to Dancing With The Stars for the new season. We are getting reports on this at twitter as well from @DWTSgossip today. Hold tight! As we posted at Pure Derek Hough, this isn’t a 100% confirm until Tuesday when the cast is officially announced on Good Morning America.
ETA2: It appears Derek is the choreographer for “GMA’S Salute To The Oscars. You can read about it here.
