The premiere of “World of Dance” is getting closer and some videos of the first episode have been posted on YouTube. Below we can see three videos with sneak peeks on the dances of three contestants and some of the judges comments, including Derek’s.
In this video below, Jennifer talks about “World of Dance” and she mentions how she wanted everyone who would be involved to the show to be “authentically linked to dance”. That why she chose Ne-Yo, Derek and Jenna to be part of the show, apart from their individual work and what they offered to the dance community.
She talks about it at about 1:48 and more specifically about Derek at about 3:20. But a very interesting interview as a whole. Thanks Marcy for sending this!
Derek just stopped by “Live with Kelly and Ryan” to talk about the upcoming “World of Dance” show he is part of along with Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Jenna Dewan. Only two weeks are left till the premiere!
Check out the video below to see what he had to say! P.S. Those pants are really tight! 😀
This is probably one of the best features/interviews of Derek I’ve read in a magazine. In this new interview with “New Orleans Living“, Derek talks about “Move Beyond” and “World of Dance”. I really love the way Christine Fontana talks/writes about Derek and his career…
Click on the pictures below to read the whole feature. It really worth reading it, believe me! Once again, thanks Jennie for sending this.
Derek, Jules and Move Beyond will be in New Orleans on May 18!
E News has some beautiful photos of the three judges – Ne-Yo, Jennifer & Derek – and the host Jenna while being on the studio for the show. We’ve already seen the chemistry between them in different videos and interviews, and this chemistry also shows in the pictures.
Also, Daily Mail features an article of the show with the stunning portraits of all the judges and host! Be sure to check them out. In case you missed the latest promo of the show, you can see it here.

This is a good write up about Derek’s artistic path over the years from NECN and worth to read it. In the interview parts, Derek talks about the upcoming show “World of Dance” (premieres on May 30) and more.
“Through his role on “World of Dance,” Hough raved he has seen extraordinary performances from up-and-comers. He said the show demands a certain caliber, and his first reaction to a piece is usually positive. But as he goes through a focused rubric that grades routine, execution, presentation, and crowd appeal, he is able to dissect the strengths and weaknesses of each work — even when confronting drastically different dance forms, like ballet and hip-hop.
“The truth is you can’t really compare the dancing itself, but you can certainly compare the feeling it gives you,” Hough said.“
Derek’s interview on the “Harry” show that he taped few weeks back aired today. A really beautiful chat where Derek talks about Move Beyond, World of Dance, his partnership with Flonase and more. As it was taped some time ago, Derek says that the tour haven’t started yet… 😉
We missed the beginning of the interview but we’ll try to have the while thing up as soon as possible.
