Derek Hough Promotes “New York Spring Spectacular” at Knicks Game

Nice video – a Minute with Derek Hough. Basically telling all about the New York Spring Spectacular. He’s honestly more excited about this project than I’ve seen him about anything in a while. Very happy for him.

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 Season 20 Pro Reveal To Take Place Feb. 11th On GMA, Rob Wade Talks To People

Executive Producer of Dancing With The Stars, Rob Wade, talked with People about the new season. Below is a take where he talks of the return of Len Goodman and Erin Andrews. Note how he mentions that the Pro Reveal will take place next week on Good Morning America.

Wade also hints that maybe it’s too soon to prepare for Len Goodman’s departure after the spring season. In December, the senior judge told reporters that traveling back and forth to England has become too overwhelming.

“He says, ‘Let’s see how it goes,’ ” says Wade. “It depends on the health of his mother and how he feels personally about the travel. There’s a good chance he might miss a lot of all next season, but I don’t know though. I think there’s a chance he’ll decide to come back next spring when Dancing with the Stars in the U.K. is not going on.”

And while Leah Remini may have been a hoot as a guest host in the skybox last season, Erin Andrews will stay put as Tom Bergeron’s co-host this year.

“You can get away with having a guest host for one-offs, but there is a lot of business to this live hosting stuff that’s kind of unique. You need a person who has the ability to do that. It’s pretty challenging, that job, and it’s quite thankless. Leah did a great job, but you need a common denominator going though there.”

Dancing with the Stars will reveal the season 10 pros Feb. 11 on Good Morning America. The stars will be introduced later this month in time for the show’s March 16 return on ABC.

More at People.

ADDING: And isn’t this an interesting comment….

Executive Producer Rob Wade told PEOPLE that the departure of Cheryl Burke to NBC and Derek Hough’s show at New York’s Radio City Music Hall shouldn’t change the dynamic of show that will return to ABC for a 20th season in March.

“There is still a huge amount of fan favorites we can bring back,” said Wade, who’s reached out to Anna Trebunskaya, Kym Johnson, Tristan MacManus and Louis van Amstel, among others, about returning this season.

I like the pros above, but, none of them are “Derek Hough” in my opinion.

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski Says He’s Healthy To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

Dancing With The Stars has asked Rob Gronkowski to dance in the past. Being he’s been hurt in the off seasons, he’s always said no, but, this season might be different being he’s healthy. Check out this fun convo with Rob and Jimmy Kimmel at the 1:39 mark. Thanks to DWTSgossip for another great find. I say bring him on. Hubby definitely agrees and says he’d be funny!
