The Young Hollywood Awards are being taped in Hollywood as I type. They won’t air until tomorrow night at 8:00pm ET on The CW Network. Until then though, Getty Images is coming out with Blue Carpet arrival photos of Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, and Mark Ballas. Derek Hough’s “Move Live On Tour” dancers are also pictured being they are performing with Derek. Here are just a few of the pics coming out. Be sure to watch this link as it’s being updated continually.
What an incredible summer it’s been for Derek and Julianne Hough and their talented cast as they travelled the United States in the “Move Live On Tour”. Yesterday and last night, they wrapped it all up in Los Angeles, California to another sold out crowd. Below are some breathtaking shots. These faces say it all! For more, see Getty Images. Pure Derek Hough has more coverage as well as lots of fan blogs (and some new blogs coming up Heidi tells us). Each and every one of them are so special. Be sure to check them all out at this link. A “moving” tour never to be forgotten!
Are there lots of you missing Dancing With The Stars Sharna Burgess like I am? If so, head to MissO and Friends. They have posted a fun new interview with Sharna. She talks about Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, and gives advise to aspiring dancers. She also talks on her new things coming up one of which includes Ballroom With A twist and her and Paul Kirkland’s new dance project called “Ballroom Fusion” which starts in November!!! Here’s a small take from the link.
Tell us about your experience at So You Think You Can Dance.
“I’ve worked on SYTYCD many times and every single time I’m inspired by the dancers and what they can achieve. I love what the show represents and that it gives our young talent a chance to be in front of some of the country’s top choreographers and also millions of people at home. It’s such a growing experience for them. I actually wish that years ago I had the opportunity to be a part of it as a competitor. Unfortuanately for me, I was always working and on tour since the show began so it was never possible.”
You are a choreographer too. What kind of dance do you teach – or is it up to the learner?
“I am a choreographer and lately other than DWTS I do more choreography than dance. There is something about choreographing and seeing your vision come to life that fills me with joy and pride, not just for myself but for my team. I choreograph many different styles but ballroom and jazz would be my 2 strongest.”
What have you got coming up in the future we should look out for?
“I will be performing with Ballroom With A Twist all through August and am really looking forward to taking the live stage with Maks, Val, Karina Cheryl and Tony!”

Awww, there are some great photos of Mark Ballas at Getty Images. Yesterday, the Dancing With The Stars pro performed at ’5 Towers’ stage for National Dance Day at Universal CityWalk in Universal City, California. According to some fans at twitter, he “slayed” the vocals. Don’t forget, his new single for “Miss Incredible” will be available to download at iTunes on July 29th (I hope that date right as it’s changed again I think?).
Lot’s to cover this morning, so bare with us! First of all, don’t miss seeing Dance With Me Instagram. Saturday Maks Chmerkovksiy, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Zendaya, Peta Murgatroyd, Tony Dovolani, and Elena Grinenko danced in two productions of “Sway” in New York City. They have videos and lots of coverage. This Tumbler page has some fun coverage too. The videos below were provided by Zendaya and a fan named Alannah. What a great night for them all and their fans.
ETA: @Dwtsgossip has a wonderful collection of photos too.

We posted on a new Bellus photoshoot with Dancing With The Stars Witney Carson a few weeks ago in a previous posting. Well, now you can view all the new photos at Bellus Magazine. Witney has also been doing some modeling for Coca Cola. Check out this instagram…Beautiful!
Not on my DWTS, please. He’s one of those guys who thinks he knows everything about everything but really doesn’t know all that much about anything. But hey, if you’re hot, you’ll be a hit whether you can sing…I mean dance, or not. But really – how funny would it be if Simon got to be Guest judge and Maks didn’t? From The TV Page:
Usually when they bring a new boss into a show it is so they can shake it up…
Yeah, but this time it is not. The show did really great last season. Quite early on in the season, Conrad who was the EP decided to leave. He had done 18 seasons. He decided he wanted a new challenge. So in this case the show is doing great and we have to be really respectful of the format.
So how are you going to put your stamp on the show?
Look, viewers love the show. I would be a fool to go in there and say, “I want to put my stamp on this. I am going to go in there and shake things up.” But there are a couple of significant changes that I am in the process of making that I think people will notice.
How many judges do you think will be on the panel?
For the moment, we are looking at three. There is a possibility for a fourth. We are talking about that possibility. But we have to see. I think you have just got to get the right mix of people. I think Bruno (Tonioli) , Len (Goodman) and Carrie Ann (Inaba) are brilliant. Certainly wouldn’t lose any of them…
Mary has sent us some video she took of Ballroom With A Twist in Dallas. This is awesome. Check it out as well as her little review of the show. THANKS MARY! You’re awesome!
Ballroom with a Twist in Dallas was the best show ever! Maks, Karina, Tony, & Cheryl danced like their souls were connected! You could feel the excitement of the audience as they interacted by answering questions & teaching us dance moves, & dancing with some of the audience. American Idol performers Von Smith & Haley Scarnato wooed the audience with their beautiful angelic voices. So you think you can dance performers put on a breathtaking performance with their phenomenal dance moves. I highly recommend seeing this show if you get the chance. I’m so grateful my daughter & I was able to enjoy this memory that will last a lifetime! A Big Dallas Texas Thank You to all the performers!
ETA: Theatre Jones has posted a review of the Dallas show. Check out the beautiful pic of Karina and Maks too when you go to the link.
