Cross Posted from…

Looks like October 19 is the first, hopefully not the last, time they will be performing this season!! Hooray!! According to ET via AOL (I’ve not seen it anywhere else yet):

Derek Hough is returning to the ballroom! On Wednesday, ABC announced that the 35-year-old Dancing With the Stars judge will perform during the Oct. 19 episode, marking the first time he’s done so since 2017.

The dancer will perform with his girlfriend — who’s also a former DWTS pro — Hayley Erbert. Hough, who’s currently serving as a DWTS judge, previously competed as a pro for 17 seasons, most recently in 2016. He won the mirrorball a total of six times, the most of any pro.
