Derek Hough Teases about 2nd DWTS Performance for the Show's Finale — Here's What to Expect
"Dancing With the Stars" host Derek Hough teased fans and viewers with juicy details about his much-anticipated second performance on the season 29 finale.
ABC knows for certain that the upcoming "Dancing With the Stars" season 29 finale has to go out with a huge bang and has lined up some of the best surprises for their viewers. DWTS Judge Derek Hough revealed that he would grace the dance floor and shared details with ET:
"It's a solo performance. I am dancing by myself and I am not sure why I decided to, but I am doing it. I have not danced a solo since I was, like, 12 years old, that is the truth. So here we go!"

The season finale, which will feature the final four couples — Nelly & Daniella Karagach, Kaitlyn Bristowe & Artem Chigvintsev, Nev Schulman & Jenna Johnson, and Justina Machado & Sasha Farber — as they dance one last time, would be Hough's second time of gracing the dance floor this season.
Hough will be gracing the ballroom with his magnificent dance skills, and as though that is not enough to have fans excited, he would be breaking a decades-long record for them.
Hough admitted that his decision to do a solo was, in all honesty, due to the pandemic. Were the circumstances different, he would have opted for a group number or something of the sort.
Although logical to do a solo, the show judge also confessed that the preparation has been challenging for him. Still, he looks forward to creating magic in the ballroom to blow his audience away.
The dancer admitted that they decided to be more open because being so secretive got exhausting.
The first time Hough performed on the show this season, the 35-year-old took to the dance floor with his long-time girlfriend, Hayley Erbert. The couple wowed fans with a magnificent paso doble to Taalbi Brothers' "Uccen."
Their excellent performance marked the first time Hough danced on the show in three years. His first performance was such a rare sighting that fans even rumored that he was planning to propose to Erbert during their dance. Hough responded to ET:
"I'm just going to be straight up, that's not happening. Just because, that's just not my style I don't think, you know?"
Hough, who has typically kept the details of his romantic life private in the past, debunked any rumors hoping to see him twirl into a kneeling position to propose to his lady. The picture-perfect couple has been an item since 2015, and only recently did the two start giving fans glimpses into the relationship.
The dancer admitted that they decided to be more open because being so secretive got exhausting. They finally made peace with bringing it all out into the open and sharing their love with their fans.
Hough has done incredibly well at keeping his fans glued to their screens, wondering what he and the show will bring in the next episode. It seems that he is sticking to character, and when the finale finally comes, viewers are sure to be blown away.
