As expected, Derek and Julianne killed it last night with their performance on Dancing with the Stars! If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a must!
Getty has some pictures of Derek arriving on DWTS.
Entertainment Tonight recaps the night with a video, including the performance of Derek and Jules at about 1:16: “One number that got us emotional” as they say and we totally agree.
Hollywood Life also has a beautiful write up about “Unsteady”.
Also adding below, the rest of yesterday’s social media posts and some pictures. For more, you can check the original post.
It’s true that we didn’t see our couple as much as we wanted last night…especially Derek who only danced in the opening number. But even for the while they appeared, they were amazing! We also didn’t see them much backstage on the social media… Check out below a short backstage video from the social media accounts of Dennis and Kym that included Derek and Marilu. For the dances of last night and Marilu’s All Access interview, you can check this post.
Also Getty has a couple of amazing pictures from last night! Marilu and Derek looked amazing!
Hey everyone! The Grand Finale is less than 30 minutes away! Are you ready to watch with us who will take home the Mirror Ball? Seems like yesterday we were watching the cast announcement!
We would like to wish all three finalists – James, Laurie and Calvin – the best of luck tonight! They were all amazing last night! No matter who wins the MBT, you are all winners for making it so far! We are waiting to see their final dances tonight, as well as all the cast coming back, including Marilu and Derek. Marilu (and Derek?) will also be on All Access at 9:28pm ET!
Below some first pictures…we’ll be updating with more from Marilu and Derek, including videos, during the live show so…stay tuned! 😉
UPDATE #1: Amazing opening from the whole cast…Marilu and Derek look amazing! The whole video added below 🙂
UPDATE #2: Another video added of Marilu’s interview/chat on All Access with Dominic. See her talking about Derek, the show, Calvin calling her son freaking him out (he is a huge fan 😉 ) and…who she predicts is going to win tonight…
UPDATE #3: And one more update with Marilu, Terra, Sasha and the Troupe dancing on the Finale. Derek was not part of it… As we tweeted earlier, most probably Derek couldn’t be on the Finale rehearsals…

Backstage, Marilu Henner was all smiles, despite being the latest to leave the show. “This week was just golden. I’m so happy. I get to go see my son in Santa Fe [now], and then I’m seeing my other one in Prague over Thanksgiving. It all happens for a reason, and I’m so happy.” Marilu will also be back in two weeks for the finale.
As for her partnership with Derek, it came under some scrutiny last week when the cameras picked up on some tension. So what was the real story? “Literally the week before [last], Marilu goes on camera [and says], ‘Hey Derek! Think we need to have a fight or some more drama? I don’t think we have a dramatic story enough!’ I said, ‘No, Marilu! We’re good! We don’t need drama, we’re fine, we’re fine!’ And then of course…I’m watching this [rehearsal] package, and I’m like, ‘Those sons of a bitches!’ [Laughs] Cause I’m the first one to be like, ‘OK, I was such a jerk this week, and I’m sorry…’ but the week itself was not that. I took that personally because I’ve done this for 11 years.”
The two were all laughs as they told the above-mentioned story, and were more than game to talk the ups and downs of their journey. Speaking of the ups, having Mark Ballas back was certainly one of the season’s best moments. Said Derek: “A friend of mine, she texted me yesterday and said, ‘Seeing your energy [when you saw] Mark, you lit up.’ I really miss him. I really miss him.”
Fox News also had a really fun chat with our couple backstage! Below is just a small excerpt, be sure to read it all! It shows how much fun and blast both of them had during their time together 😀
Hough, 31, told reporters backstage that he learned many things from the veteran star, 64, including the meaning of the word physiognomy and “how to get rid of a bruise by rubbing it out with a pencil eraser.
“Oh, the other ones are sexual tips and I can’t, I can’t,” Hough then stammered.
Standing by his side, Henner smiled, “I’m so matter of fact about this stuff.”
Hough, who has been dating fellow “DWTS” hoofer Hayley Erbert, exclaimed, “My favorite–she was like, she’s like, ‘I’ve gotta teach your girlfriend how to do this one.’ I was like, whoa, okay. Hey!”
Hough didn’t elaborate, but Henner added, “We had a blast.”
