What a magical night for Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough. Last night was the opening night of New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Pictured below is he and his Dancing With The Stars partner Nastia Liukin. You can view more photos at Getty Images. Pure Derek Hough has more photos, a round up of press reviews, videos, guest blogs, and more of the show that you won’t want to miss seeing and reading. Go Derek!!! *So so proud of you!
I have to say… I don’t blame Derek Hough for bowing out of Dancing With The Stars this season with a new exciting role such as this. CONGRATULATIONS DEREK!! But, we are so going to miss you!!! (adding: still hoping for atleast an appearance on Dancing With The Stars of some type?)
Five-time winner Derek Hough has to bow out of the next installment of the ABC show because he’ll play the male lead in New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall this spring.
Debuting in March, the limited, seven-week engagement will feature Hough as Jack, a man with a special mission who will receive an eternal reward if he’s able to help a man named Bernie keep his position as a New York City tour guide. Bernie’s job is in jeopardy when Jenna (Nashville’s Laura Benanti) reveals her plan to take the tour company “virtual.”
Aren’t these some fantastic shots of Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough? Yesterday, he made a guest appearance to talk about his “Move Live On Tour” with ssiter Julianne Hough. They also talked on his recent cover and interview in People Magazine and signing with Kelloggs to help promote their cereal and good nutrition. Derek also danced with Jenny McCarthy (wouldn’t it be cool to see her do Dancing With The Stars and she looks so good with Derek!) and Sherri Shepherd. What a great show. Note how Donnie Walberg (he’d be a great get for Dancing With The Stars too, huh Court?) and Rick Fox were on the show as well. To see more photos, see Getty Images. To see even more pictures, the full video of this interview, and lots more on the “Move Live On Tour”, see Pure Derek Hough.
In case you missed Karina Smirnoff on The View today, she talked about “relationships” with Whoopi, Sherri, and Barbara. They ask her about her two engagements. Karina explains how they didn’t work out and why she gave the ring back. Karina also adds that this is one of the subjects she writes of in her new book and everything she learned from those experiences. Most importantly, she learned to be a “better person”.
Karina does great job at co-hosting. She’s full of heart, sincere, and fun….and she’s radiating in yellow too. You can watch more of Karina in this episode in full at The View.
Speaking of Karina, Charlesg315 You Tube recorded her dancing with Maks Chmerkovskiy in Forever Tango. This is fun too. Thanks to @DWTSMaksimFans for this find…
ADDING: Thanks to Jimmbboe, here is the first segment for International viewers….
As we reported to you earlier and in case you missed it, Tom Bergeron was a guest on The View Wednesday. We were hoping to find just his segment on the show, but, unfortunately, and for now, all we have is the full episode which you can watch >>>>HERE. The View girls start out by talking about their debate Tuesday and the rumors about the show wanting bigger celebrities and how one of the things they plan to do is give the celebrities more control over rehearsal times, etc.. Tom says the hours put in don’t always equate to “good dancing” (which is true. Some people are just naturally gifted). Tom also says Dancing With The Stars has always tried to get bigger names to do the show and nothing is really any different. They also talk about the celebrities having free reign over their costumes and “bird feathers” (lol). They talk of Tom’s Emmy nomination as well. Sherri also asks him what it’s going to take for her to be asked to do the show (she’s in total agony dying to dance! LOL). Tom Bergeron, as always, is at his funniest. Be sure to watch.
Special thanks to PureDWTS reader Jennifer for sending the link to us.
Today on The View, hosts Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara Walters talked about “Dancing With The Stars”. Sherri Shepherd, in particular, indeed loves this show and what it’s all about. The others try to joke about the catastrophes on the show while Sherri is more serious and even gets defensive. It turns into a debate. lol Funny stuff and I think this girl (Sherri) is dying to dance. Be sure to turn into The View tomorrow (Wednesday) as Tom Bergeron will be making a guest appearance.
