Last night, Derek Hough won a 2017 World Of Dance Award for his choreography in the “Kairos” performance on Dancing With The Stars last season. Below are some photos of him on the Red Carpet. For more coverage, see PureDerekHough.com. Let’s hope he wins an Emmy Award next for this performance. Well done, Derek!
In reflecting back on 2016, what were your Top 5 Dancing On Dancing With The Stars? This can be from the couples or Pro Performances. You can also name some Honorable Mentions if you like if you can’t stop at 5. Let us know in comments.
Here are mine in this order:
1. Derek Hough’s “Kairos” pro performance. So creative and just HOT….
2. Sharna and James’ Freestyle. Just stunningly beautiful….
3. Peta Murgatroyd and Nyle DiMarco’s Freestyle. Breathtaking and so emotional…
4. Paige Van Zant and Mark Ballas Paso Doble. So powerful and creative….
5. Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold’s Freestyle. They threw everything in it, but, the kitchen sink…
Gleb Savchenko and Jana Kramer’s “Get Down Tonight” Samba. I could have picked several of their dances, but, this was so fun and I loved Gleb’s hair. Please TPTB, make Gleb a permanent pro on this show. Last season, we only saw of glimpse of what this guy can do with his partners….
Sasha Farber and Emma Slater’s Engagement dance. So beautiful. Thanks to Cari for this reminder…
Now it’s your turn. We look so forward to reading your choices in comments….

WNYpapers.com interviewed Emma Slater about new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour which begins tomorrow night. Below she talks of how thankful she is for the opportunity to dance and tour…and how cool it is to actually see their audience.
If you think about where this sport of dance was when you started, to have people come out to see you perform this dance – they’re not coming out to see you play a guitar or sing a song; they’re coming out to see you because you’re doing this dance that was not this popular 10 or 20 years ago – how do you wrap your brain around that – to see how far it’s come?
Emma Slater: That, to me, it will never cease to amaze me. It’s always going to be overwhelming when we step on stage, in particular. The TV show is different, because you can’t see your audience physically. You can feel them, if they’re physically there in the ballroom, and you can feel them online, but that’s where it’s always amazing to me. Because we actually get to see people fill auditoriums. And it’s just mind-blowing to see how such a little thing to be, my passion for dancing, has turned into a journey where I can be on stage and there can be lots of people coming to see the show, to see you dance – like you said.
I think that’s amazing. It will never be anything other than overwhelming, and I’m always going to be so grateful for that.
I never expected my life to turn out that way – that I would be given that opportunity. And we love going on tour, because we get to actually see our audience, and it’s great.
She’s so cool. More at WNYpapers.com including talk on her engagement and lots more. Great interview.

This is cute. Apparently, Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovskiy got kicked out of Lamaze Class. You can watch Maks and Peta talking on it below. US Magazine picked up the story too. I can’t wait for these two to have their little tyke…let’s hope they can take another Lamaze Class somewhere else.
