Will Derek Hough be part of “Bye Bye Birdie” with Jennifer Lopez?

Yesterday, Kristyn Burtt attended The Art & Artistry of Hairspray Live! where she talked with cast and crew of the show who were also there.

In an interview with Executive Producer Craig Zadan, she asked about the upcoming “Bye Bye Birdie” with Jennifer Lopez and if Derek will be part of this musical as well. The answer might not be positive but, Craig says some amazing things about Derek! Be sure to listen to him.

Kristyn also shared a photo with Derek’s wardrobe from the exhibit. Thank you SO much Kristyn for these! ❤

New great review about Hairspray Live! original soundtrack by Douglas Mayo

Maybe with a little bit delay, Douglas Mayo posted his review about Hairspray Live! soundtrack, praising the cast’s performances and how everyone suited perfectly to their roles. Douglas gives the recording 5 stars!
Below you can read some excerpts of it, including what he says about Derek.

“This recording seems to have been made independently of the live broadcast and features a cast so perfectly suited to this show that it is now my favourite recording of Hairspray, topping even the Original Broadway Cast recording which I have loved for many years. […]
[…] The inclusion of Ladies Choice in this version of the show and The Nicest Kids In Town, complete with blaring brass and driving drums gives Derek Hough a chance to really let rip as TV host Corny Collins.”

Be sure to read it all at British Theatre. It’s a must! 😉

New review about Hairspray Live! OST – Amazing feedback on Derek Hough’s singing

Wow! This is truly an amazing feedback about Derek’s vocals! Ruth Jepson wrote a review about the soundtrack of the show which as he says “is very much worth a listen, even though there are a few flaws.”

About Derek…

“Out of the whole soundtrack, [Jennifer Hudson] is only matched vocally by Derek Hough as Corny Collins, whose cheeky tones prove he is absolutely the Ladies Choice.

You can read the whole review on The Reviews Hub. Thank you Carolyn & HappyHough 🙂

New review: “Derek Hough as Corny Collins was a Ken-doll flawless”

And one more review after the many we posted yesterday! I LOVE how everyone is praising Derek as Corny Collins! Don’t you? 😀 A great review for the whole show from CBC News.

Derek Hough as Corny Collins was Ken-doll flawless, even gamely dunking an Oreo cookie into milk and popping it into his mouth after a big dance number. (Though, we’re not sure why Oreo needed to follow up Hough’s live Oreo endorsement with another of its cookie commercials. Isn’t that double dipping?)

Also, Broadway World asked the fans to rank their 10 favorite performances when the show ended, and Derek’s “Nicest Kids in Town” made it to the list. Head to Broadway World to see the full list.
