Derek Hough Talks Carole Baskin, DWTS and World of Dance

Sort of cross posted from PureDerekHough…excerpt is a bit different since this is a DWTS site.

This is an illuminating article from TV Line with what Derek had to say after last night’s show (excerpt below). He also says he plans to dance later in the season.

Hough told TV Insider and a small group of reporters after the show that it’s more than a bit challenging when he sees the clock ticking away with only a few seconds left and he needs to render his decision. “Carrie Ann [Inaba] was like, ‘Let me tell you why [I’m choosing who I’m choosing] and Bruno’s like, ‘Let me tell you why…’” Hough notes with a good-natured chuckle. “Then, it was, ‘Derek you have to give us an answer!’”

Fortunately, Hough, who first appeared on the show as a pro dancer in Season 5, knows the drill. “Hey, it’s my job,” he says. “I can’t complain.” Plus, he reveals, to his understanding, he won’t be the one called upon to be a potential tie-breaker each week. “It’ll trade off,” he muses, adding wryly, “but I want to thank everyone for leaving it up to me!”

—-

“It really was the progress that [Carole] had made,” says the professional dancer of choosing the Big Cat Rescue owner, who caught himself being lost in the “beauty and grace” of Baskin’s Viennese Waltz with partner Pasha Pashkov. “I had to look at it from that perspective.”

About his development deal:

“There are already a few projects that are coming up,” he teases. “I felt like it was a right fit with ABC and Disney for things we have in mind.”

A bit more about this season of DWTS:

Hough’s in no rush for couples to leave the competition, but he is hoping there will soon be more air time for him to go into detailed critiques that will ideally help couples deliver more entertaining routines.

“There are definitely moments where I’d love to say, ‘Choreographically, try this approach,’” Hough says. “Sometimes, that will be said off-screen [but] I genuinely want to help people improve.”

PureDWTS Season 29, Week 2 – Power Rankings

Welcome to “Dancing with Tyra Banks! And 15 Other Famous People But Mainly TYRA BANKS!!! Did We Mention TYRA BANKS??? WE ARE CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATED TO SAY HER NAME AT LEAST 50 TIMES PER SHOW, SEND HELP!”

For anyone still able to hold onto the notion that Tyra “is doing better than we thought she would”, I admire your optimism, but I’m completely over her after only 2 weeks. Every time she asks an awkward (and usually frivolous) question after a couple gets their judges’ critiques (which are cut woefully short), or we have to hear her make every interaction about herself in some way, or we’re forced to witness her awkward attempt at humor in the “smizing” cold open, I just think to myself “Tom Bergeron would have never stooped to this level, and he could have gracefully hosted this show with a blindfold on and his hands tied behind his back…and it would still be better than this drivel!” Erin would have been worlds better than this as well…and Samantha Harris…and even one-and-done host Lisa Canning. About the only previous host Tyra has beat is Brooke Burke-Charvet, owing to the fact that Brooke wasn’t much more than a barely-sentient (but very pretty) potato. At least Tyra has a certain trainwreck appeal that makes her somewhat entertaining to watch…

…so with the new(ish) voting format, as Heidi mentioned, we’ve kind of discovered that it may actually be more beneficial for a couple to dance in the first hour of the show (as opposed to the second); I don’t think it was a coincidence that they seemed to front-load the show this week with most of the good dancers (Nev, Skai, Johnny, Justina, AJ) and left more of the weaker dancers in the back half (Charles, Carol, Chrishell, Vernon, Anne). And I don’t think the order in which the couples were called “safe” from elimination was a coincidence, either, despite Tyra insisting that the couples were “in no particular order”; the earliest ones called safe (Kaitlyn, Justina, AJ, Johnny) are the ones I think the majority of us assumed would be the safest, and the last three standing (Chrishell, Carol, and Charles) were the three most of us had in the danger zone.  I find the fact that Skai was one of the last four standing to possibly be a bit of a warning shot – I’m wondering if she’s dealing with Disney Kid Syndrome(TM) and is struggling with votes.

Other noteworthy stuff? On the negative end, I’m not sure the cameras panning to the couples sitting in their socially-distanced balconies after watching another couple dance is a good thing – more often than not, the couples were either making strange (potentially shady?) faces, or were messing with their phones; at least once, the camera panned to an empty balcony for a few beats. On the positive end, we are getting to experience the saucy troll side of Derek – the passive aggressive “Good job! That’s all I have time to say!” to Jesse after being rushed along from giving a critique by Tyrant (I’ve decided it’s her new name, y’all, since she’s the airtime hoarder) was SENDING me, as was this Carrie-Ann trolling TiK ToK he posted the other day that has inspired me to resurrect my long-marinating “lift policing” post for later this week 😉 Seriously, I cannot wait to see what other sassy comedic GOLD this arrangement sends our way – this is what happens when you hire the most decorated former pro in DWTS history to judge, after he’s had a successful run judging another more high-profile show on a rival network and he has absolutely NOTHING to lose by being a bit of a little shit 😉

So we lost Charles & Emma, which wasn’t terribly surprising – I think most of us had Carole and Charles as our bottom two; really and truly, as much as everyone seems to want Carole gone, I do think the right decision was made – I thought Carole was slightly better than Charles both weeks. Charles, bless him, I just don’t think he was going to improve much more this season. Sweet man, sweet partnership with Emma…but just not meant to go the distance. …Read more

ETA2: More interviews added below, a report on Tom, and more critiques on Tyra.

ETA: More interviews added below. Keep checking back.

Another week down, but, is it just me? Everything feels so rushed and the dances feel so short? For instance, the creativity and story of Johnny and Britt’s dance was just getting started and then it ended. It seemed like the case for most everyone. And poor Derek Hough having to cut several of his critiques. It didn’t seem fair, but, my faves of the night: AJ and Cheryl, Nev & Jenna, Justina & Sasha, and Jesse & Sharna. I’m not giving up on Johnny & Britt yet, but, I really hope they start wowing us soon. Same with Peta & Vernon who I really like too.

Ok, so let’s check out the scores from last night in order….

Skai & Alan 21 (7, 7, 7)
Justina & Sasha 21 (7, 7, 7)

PureDWTS Season 29, Week 1 – Power Rankings

As I find myself saying more and more often in this god forsaken year – this episode of Black Mirror sucks 😛

Granted, my bar for this season of DWTS was set lower than ever; I was expecting a certain degree of shenanigans that inevitably comes with COVID-19 precautions. The lack of audience meant the couples seemed to just get swallowed up by the stage (and lighting), and the walls constructed on both sides of the dance floor to obscure the lack of audience seemed to evoke a sort of post-apocalyptic robot obelisk. Then there was the dystopian (and highly unnerving, at times) pre-recorded applause, booing, and cheering noises that were piped in, often at the wrong time (and wayyyy too loud). The intro of the celebs at the beginning of the show seemed to be some sort of bastardized version of the “choose your player” screen at the beginning of video games, with each character pulsing awkwardly in some sort of characteristic movement – or a preview of the 2020 version of The Sims, who knows. While I enjoyed the intro of the pros walking to the stage one by one and striking a pose, they all seemed to look a bit sad – I like to think it was because they missed Tom. I certainly did.

I just can’t with Tyra, guys. I know it was her first night, but sis was just trying wayyyy too hard, and it came across disingenuous and awkward at times; I just found myself going “We let go of the ease and aplomb of Tom and Erin FOR THIS???” And this is DWTS, not the Met Gala – so the ginormous “look at meeeeeee!” ballgown made me roll my eyes, as did the costume change. I can’t recall Tom or Erin ever changing costumes during the show, or wearing anything that was so over-the-top as to shift focus from the contestants. Nor did they feel the need to stunt in a Ferrari… Read more..

More Derek Hough Press for DWTS Season 29

Cross posting from PureDerekHough….the third video has the most discussion about what is going to happen on the show this season, although still not alot.

Derek is probably right about sitting far from Bruno. Although Derek can get pretty wild as well. 🙂 Thanks to Dee for the heads up on this one.

Here’s a little something from ET. His non-answer to the WOD question is interesting. He didn’t apparently have to ask permission…but there is probably something in his contract with NBC that lets him do it, OR his contract has expired and has to be renewed when WOD is picked up for season 5. Which I assume it will be, eventually. But when, with COVID?

I think I missed this one from Extra from a few days ago…

Derek Hough Returns to DWTS as Judge and Other Changes to The Show’s Format

I love how people are all surprised he’s coming back as a judge. Hello?? He’s a logical choice to replace Len, who appears to be stuck in London. Wish I was stuck in London. 🙂 There are worse things…like being a pro who ISN’T friends with Derek right now. 😀 Seriously, though….those folks don’t have to worry, Derek isn’t likely to behave how they themselves would behave. 😉 And you know how rare it is that DWTS poaches from another “Big 4” network?? Times must be tough…

Deadline also reports on other changes to how the show is produced to keep everyone safe:

The judges’ desk will be widened to maintain eight feet between each judge and dancers will be asked to stand at a distance of at least eight feet from the judges during the judging process.

The rehearsal dance studio has been equipped with remote cameras rather than in person camera crews as in previous seasons.

There will also be no audience for the show, which will still be produced and aired live, or band, and the team at BBC Studios have redesigned the studio as a result. Llinares said, “What we didn’t want to have in the ballroom was loads of empty seats, we wanted it to look like there was a purpose to it so we’re redesigning the ballroom. We’re going to put in some extra screens, it’s going to look like the show was always designed to look this way.”

Seriously, the music was canned half the time anyway.

Gone also are backing dancers and big set pieces – there will be no dance routines with cars or castles in order to cut down on the number of people needed to put together the production.

The sky lounge has been removed from the set so the celebrities will practice social distancing while watching the other celebrities’ dance from the second floor balcony.

Is this where I say “I told you so?” 🙂

The dancers, both the celebrities and pro dancers, will be tested five times a week. “The central premise of the show is two people who are in very close proximity with each other. They as a couple on the show will stay as a pod – they won’t come in to contact with the other couples to the point that we’ve got three set of married pro dancers and they will be living separately for as long as they’re in the competition,” he added.

Tyra Banks Talks to Extra about DWTS Season 29 and Derek Hough

Geezus, this constant need to chase a younger audience. They’ve been doing it for years and it always makes the show WORSE instead of better. I don’t know what makes them think that Tyra and her “pixie dust” is going to be an improvement.

She also spoke to ET and all but confirmed that Len is going to be staying in England and they’re not sure how they’re going to use him. That sure leaves a big hole for someone like Derek to step into!

“Carrie Ann is definitely back, and Bruno, who I can’t wait to vibe with because he is just as crazy as I am,” Banks, 46, confirmed to ET. “At the moment, we’re trying to figure out how to incorporate Len Goodman because he is in England and there’s all these travel restrictions because of COVID-19. So we’re trying to figure that out.”

And if this doesn’t scare you about this season, nothing will…

Banks, who previously was a judge for shows like America’s Next Top Model, added that having to sit back and simply watch the dances isn’t going to be an easy feat.

“That’s going to be the hardest thing in the world. I’m not a professional dancer but I still know performance and I know it well,” she explained. “So to have to hold back and not be able to [critique], like, that’s not my role. My role is to be the cheerleader, to be the champ, to be that ringmaster and to be, I call it, the hype-man DJ. To keep the room pumped.”

Banks joked, however, that she “might have to cuss out a judge every now and then” though.

I have a feeling I’m going to be screaming at my TV A LOT “You’re a model fer god’s sake, shut the hell up!!” She goes on to say this about Derek…which makes it sound like he’ll be neither judge NOR pro….either that or she’s dumb, not realizing he’s been a judge for four season on a far superior show.

“Yeah, Derek is coming back in a very interesting way,” Banks shared, playing coy. “I am very excited about that because I know Derek and he’s fun. But you just gonna have to wait and see how he’s coming back. You’ll know next week!”

Hough’s official role will be revealed next Tuesday during Good Morning America.
