Derek Hough, Brittany Cherry, Hayley Erbert and Jason Glover Perform “Singin’ in the Rain” – HI Res Video

This is some kind of awesome video!! Well done, Derek and company. Kinda funny – with the head mic on you can hear Derek breathing…but you can also hear a couple of his little dancing noises as he’s trying to restrain them. I imagine he’ll loose that altogether with more practice. He didn’t have a problem in New York Spring Spectacular.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Julianne Hough Not Returning As A Judge On Dancing With The Stars

According to People, Julianne Hough is not returning as a judge in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Though note (at the link) how she and Rob Wade say this won’t be the last we see of her in the ballroom.

Julianne Hough – who served as a judge on seasons 20 and 21 – will not be returning to the panel for the next season of the reality dance competition.

“I will miss being on the panel for Season 22, but have a lot of exciting stuff coming that I look forward to sharing,” the former DWTS champion, 27, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “The pro dancers, producers and crew at DWTS will always be my family.”

Instead, judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tolioni will once again be joined by Len Goodman, who took last season off because of other filming commitments.

More at People.

I think I’m going to cry. I loved her as a Judge. Though, what I’d give to see her as a returning Pro instead. Yes, I’m dreaming.

ETA: Below is a video from Entertainment Tonight with Julianne’s statement….
