Derek and Julianne Hough to Dance to Sia on DWTS 20 Finale!

Okay, we’re now up to three Derek dances on the finale, this one with Julianne, the one with Amy and Noah, and one with Nastia. I sense an attempt at appeasing the masses. Or just using Derek to keep his fans tuned in. BUT, this offers Derek and Julianne a great opportunity to promote MOVE! Derek, at least, is owed that much, IMO.

What do you all think? Discuss.

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. :-)

Give It Up To Julianne And Derek Hough And The Cast Of The “Move Live On Tour”

MoveLiveOnTour 015

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…

Dancing With The Stars Wants Julianne Hough Back, Changes Next Season

Hey All! Be sure to read Cathy’s fan blog over at Pure Derek Hough. At a Question and Answer session at the “Move Live On Tour” Broadway show, Derek Hough mentions how Dancing With The Stars wants Julianne back for next season. There will also “be changes”. Derek also mentioned that he didn’t know if he’d be back.

Then he went on to say that they want Julianne back, there will be changes next season, and that he doesn’t know yet.

This would be so cool. I hope they can get Julianne (as well as Derek) back to dance as she is on fire in this tour to say the least according to all our reports. She’d be a great judge again too. Though note that Julianne has also mentioned going back to making movies when the tour ends. So, it’s anyone’s guess for what could happen?

More at Pure Derek Hough including other fun blogs, new interviews, and more.

DWTS Derek Hough And His Dancers Do The Cereal And Milk Dance At Kelloggs Recharge Bar

What a fun Thursday it was for Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough and several of his “Move Live On Tour” Dancers. They made an appearance at the Kelloggs Recharge Bar in New York City to dance what Derek calls “The Cereal And Milk Dance”. This seriously needs to be turned into a TV commercial. So clever and catchy! For more on the event including an exclusive fan report, interviews, other views of this dance, and high quality pictures, see Pure Derek Hough.
