Derek spoke to the Miami Herald back before the tour started and they apparently just published it to coincide with MOVE arriving in Florida.
Derek Hough’s twist on a recent Season 20 Dancing With the Stars episode was the “Ouch!” heard ’round the country.
On April 20, while rehearsing for the 10th anniversary special edition of the ballroom dance competition show — Hough is its most winning pro — the 30-year-old Utah native broke a toe on his right foot after an errant kick. He then sprained the inside and the outside of his left ankle, and ended up with a bone bruise (the latter after tumbling down stairs while attending to his toe).
Bad break and bad timing. You could practically hear the accountants gasp.
Hough was in his customary race toward the finals with gymnast “star” partner Nastia Liukin (the couple finished in fourth place) and simultaneously starring in a New York Spring Spectacular dance show at Radio City Music Hall. He was also readying rehearsals for the second annual MOVE Live Tour with sister Julianne Hough (a judge on DWTS and actress).
MOVE — with both stars intact, he swears — cha-chas onto the Hard Rock Live stage Friday. “I learned the show in three days this year,” he says.
Hough is involved in every aspect of MOVE — choreographing the routines, dancing, singing and engaging in banter with his younger sis.
“I’m feeling much better, I’m getting strong,” Hough says on the phone during a break in rehearsals in Los Angeles as carpenters slam together painted sets, costumers run around and giant fans blow air around the Houghs.
For Hough, work is always a race against the clock. He wasn’t even supposed to be on the DWTS anniversary season due to the Radio City gig, but “I get passionate about challenges,” he says.
“It was outrageous traveling back and forth, rehearsing and doing two to three shows a day. Instead of scaring me it got me excited — let’s see if I can do this. But I’m a team player and very loyal person, and if I could make it work and be a part of that 10th anniversary, which was a milestone, I thought it important to be part of that.”
Jo Swafford took some amazing photos at the shows she went to in Texas. See purederekhough.com for more coverage of MOVE Live on Tour.
He’s breaking my heart here. He’s amazing for letting things roll off his back. Or perhaps he knows the manipulation and other crap but finds that to be less important than working with celebs and teaching them to dance. From News-Press.com:
As for “Dancing with the Stars,” Hough expects he’ll be returning next season to judge or to foxtrot with more fleet-footed celebrities.
“It’s likely next season,” he says. “I think I have one more left on my contract. We’ll see.”
He hopes it happens.
“I love the show,” he says. “The show’s amazing. I love every part of it… There’s really nothing like it.
“For me, as long as I have ideas and things to do on the show, I want to be a part of it.”
Derek says he’s loved meeting people and dancing with them on the hit ABC show.
“They’ve all impressed me, and they’ve all been fantastic,” he says. “But there have been some special ones, some special moments. You know, it’s just one of those moments where I look back and go, ‘Oh, wow, I can’t believe I did that!’
“It’s like with Kellie Pickler, when I did the freestyle with her (in 2013). It was just a special moment.”
Then again, he says, the show is full of special moments — including the sheer joy of teaching somebody how to dance.
“Any teacher can tell you that,” he says. “They’re nothing like showing somebody something and seeing that light go on in their eyes when they realize they can do it.
“When you’re giving and you’re sharing, it’s an amazing, fulfilling feeling. It’s great. It’s a wonderful thing.”

I’m loving this dress too worn by Erin Andrews last night at the CMT Awards. She looks so glamorous in white, doesn’t she? Read more..
As most of you know who follow the site, we’ve had rumors of Bruce Jenner dancing on Dancing With The Stars for several seasons. Now that she has made the transformation to a woman, will this be the season she dances? If so, who would she dance with? Although not reliable, Hollywood Life reported Mark Ballas and Derek Hough would dance with her. They also report that producers told Caitlyn that she would be “given one of best dancers they have.” Tony Dovolani talked on the possibility of Caitlyn dancing with Wendy Williams this week (you can watch this interview here if you haven’t yet). To the possibility, Tony called Caitlyn “brave” and “inspiring” and then said, “Absolutely! Why not? We’re ground-breaking people.” Derek Hough also said he’d dance with her in this new interview yesterday with Entertainment Tonight (watch below). Derek is up for any challenge and taking chances. He loves stepping out of the box and inspirational stories for what Dancing With The Stars has been about. More below. So yeah, all eyes on Caitlyn for Dancing With The Stars Season 21. It will be interesting to see if this is when Caitlyn finally dances as she has a lot of reasons to dance these days. #GoForItCaitlyn and bring on that glam if you do it. Read more..
This is a little dated (and I can’t remember if we posted this), but, it’s fun to watch in case you missed it. #DWTSOffSeasonFun Thanks to Lois for the find.
