Derek Hough and Peta Murgatroyd at the Mohegan Sun

Apparently, they danced and did a Q&A – then Derek apparently stopped in at a dance competition that was also being held there and all the little girls went crazy. 🙂  Lots of pictures on but here’s a video of their Shine 360 Cam – you can also see it at but the video takes forever to load. Or it did for me.

Love this picture from @LyssPop of Derek and Peta

Here’s another one from her that….well, I love it. 😉

Derek also did a Schwinn/US Magazine Bike In Event yesterday in NYC

ETA: Here’s the video of the Argentine Tango, if you’re curious. I suggest clicking “full screen”. Pretty damn good.

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas Performs For Miss Carolina Beauty Pageant (Photos)

Isn’t this a fun take? Last night, Dancing With The Stars pro Mark Ballas performed his music during the live finals competition of the Miss North Carolina beauty pageant. A few fans at twitter who were at the event said that Mark slayed it on his guitar. According to the Fay Observer, Mark performed three songs, while young girls screamed, “We love you, Mark!” Mark posted some more pics at his Facebook. Be sure to check them out if interested. It looks like he had a good time and a goofy one at that in one photo. I say no more. 🙂

Hi, I'm a news hounds from way back. Since 1999, I've worked on Madonna and Enrique Iglesias fan sites....and now PureDWTS. I have always been a big music and dancing fan, but, I'm also passionate about photography, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible travelling and camping with my hubby and our loving and patriotic doggie, Cash.
