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!
Have you seen the Move Live On Tour yet? I was blessed to be able to see it in Denver, Colorado this past week. I wrote all about my experience at Pure Derek Hough if you’d like to read it and see my photos. Let’s just say, I was beyond “moved”! Derek and Julianne could not have been more kind and warm hearted when meeting them. As for their dancing….they gave it up and then some as well as their talented and fabulous dancers who brought the same intensity in different ways. The quality of this show is off the hook! The tour is on it’s last legs now as it travels to Arizona and California this next week, but, don’t give up on buying tickets if you see that some shows are “sold out”. Check the venues themselves and places like Stubhub.com, Ebay, etc. The price is worth every penny. Check twitter too as I’ve seen some people at the last minute who weren’t able to go. If you’d like to blog and review on your experience, see this link.
“After you move, don’t you feel good?” ~Derek Hough
Yes, I did!!!
And guess what? (Our) John also saw the show in Sandy, Utah this week. Here’s a little bit of what he saw. Thanks to John Von Dreele (another John) for sending…
More on all of the shows and more at Pure Derek Hough.
Wow wow wow is all I can say to a new review of the “Move Live On Tour” from our Own Miss Heidi. If you head to Pure Derek Hough, you can read her bird’s eye account of the entire show from Nashville, Tennessee. She not only reviews the show, she posted some awesome photos and videos. For a sneak peek, check out the video below where Julianne talks of why she and Derek created the “Move Live On Tour”. So humble and gracious as ever….

Lots lots more at Pure Derek Hough. Heidi, as always, is full of her wicked humor too. A MUST READ AND SEE!
So my friend Amanda over at PureSYTYCD shot me a tweet this afternoon – she gets to go to the SYTYCD live show tonight in Atlanta, and she happened to run into some of the cast at the mall earlier today. She apparently got to talk to Du-Shaunt “Fik-Shun” Stegall (co-winner of the most recent season of SYTYCD), and according to him, someone from his season “will be on DWTS next season”. He didn’t specify who, and he didn’t specify whether they’d be a pro or in the troupe – but there were 4 ballroom dancers on SYTYCD this season, so I figure he must be referring to one of them (although stranger things have happened…look at Tyne).
Yes, it’s probably a bit early for anyone to know for sure whether they’ll be on the show next season, but it did get me thinking: maybe TPTB are already scouting out new talent for next season, and they want to go fishing in the SYTYCD pool once more…so it might be possible that they’ve at least been “in talks” with some of the ballroom dancers from season 10 of SYTYCD about coming over to DWTS. If so…who could it be?
The four possible choices are Brittany Cherry, Jenna Johnson, Alan Bersten, and Paul Karmiryan. Both Brittany & Jenna are part of the VIBE family that gave us Lindsay & Witney, so I’m guessing that by extension, they’ve also worked with Mark on more than one occasion. Both ladies have also appeared in guest dance numbers on DWTS before (see below – Brittany’s the brunette on the left, Jenna’s the one on the right). I don’t know quite as much about the guys – I know Paul actually won the Armenian version of SYTYCD a few years back and lives in California, and Alan comes from a dance family (his older brother also auditioned for SYTYCD, but the judges chose Alan) and lives in Minnesota.
If this little nugget of info is true, who do you guys think will be joining us on DWTS next season?
I’m personally leaning towards Jenna – she’s the VIBE connection, she went pretty far on SYTYCD, and she seems to have the same “big” personality on the floor that we see from Witney. Definite troupe material, IMO. Not sure I’d want any of these 4 to proceed straight to pro, but I think any of them would make a decent addition to the troupe. What do you guys think? Do you think we’ll be seeing any of these dancers gracing the DWTS floor next year?
