…oh yes HE CAN! 😀 TV Line‘s Andy Swift posted a review for Hairspray Live’s soundtrack that was released yesterday and it has some good things to say about Derek, as well as other cast members. Andy points out that Maddie is a damn star and…from what we’ve seen and heard from her so far…I couldn’t agree more! Read more on TV Line!
Derek Hough can sing! You’d think I’d know better than to doubt the pipes of a Hough, especially after Julianne’s killer performance in Grease: Live, but I’m just not that evolved. So imagine my delight upon hearing Derek’s rock-solid performance of “The Nicest Kids in Town,” “(It’s) Hairspray” and…
“Ladies’ Choice” is no longer a Link Larkin number. The song — originally written for the 2007 film, in which Zac Efron played Link — is now performed by Hough’s Corny Collins. When asked for the reason behind the switch, Garrett Clayton (Live!‘s Link) had only this to say: “It wasn’t up to me”
P.S. In case you haven’t gotten the soundtrack yet, do it now!
