Britt Stewart talks about her career and what part Derek Hough and Mandy Moore played for her to be on DWTS

Britt Stewart is a member of DWTS Troupe since Season 23 and few days back, she talked to Kristyn Birtt about her career and how she reached where she is today. It’s an amazing interview!

When she is asked about how she became involved with DWTS, she has a story to tell that includes Derek and Mandy Moore. You can read the except below but, be sure to read the whole interview on Dance Network. It worth it!

Thanks Kristyn for sending this!

How did you become involved with DWTS? I know everyone has a different story about they became a part of the show.

About a year ago, Derek Hough was hosting the Disneyland 60th anniversary and Mandy Moore was choreographing the opening number. Witney Carson was partnering with Derek and she missed a few days of rehearsal because she was on her honeymoon. We were filming the rehearsal so Mandy could send it to the Disney/ABC executives for approval. Out of nowhere, she looked at me and said, “Britt, at the end of the ballroom section, dance with Derek.”

From there, I believe that’s how DWTS noticed me. For Mandy to do that, I am so grateful. Then producers reached out to my agent and had me do an audition with an on-camera interview and I learned a Latin routine and performed a solo of my choice.

A season went by and then they asked me to come on before Season 23. It was so last minute, I remember signing my contract on the way to the rehearsal for the opening number. It came out of nowhere. I know they were interested in me for Season 22, but it didn’t work out. I thought maybe my time had passed.

Derek & Julianne Hough perform “Unsteady” on Dancing with the Stars [PICS & VIDEO]

Since the day they said they would perform on Dancing with the Stars a sneak peek of their Move Beyond tour, we were all waiting to see it and as always, Derek and Jules didn’t disappoint!!!

What an amazing performance – extension of “Elastic Heart” from Season 20!!! So powerful and emotional!! Thank you Derek and Jules for this…am I the only one seeing a new Emmy Nomination..? 😉

Getting ready for “Elastic Heart” Part 2 with Derek & Julianne Hough for DWTS tonight

Only a couple of hours till the new episode of Dancing with the Stars and we all can’t wait to see the “Part 2” as Derek says of “Elastic Heart“. Derek and Jules performed the “first part” back in Season 20, they were nominated for an Emmy along with Tessandra and won for it. Can’t wait for tonight’s performance!!

Derek shared a sweet post about this performance on his Instagram (added below) and Entertainment Tonight also mentions the siblings’ performance. It doesn’t really add anything new but…as ABC didn’t promote the appearance at all, it’s good to see other media doing it.

Last, adding the Instagram stories posts of the last two days up to now with the rehearsals and more.

Julianne Hough talks about her special performance with Derek Hough on DWTS and more

In a new and very beautiful interview with TV Guide, Julianne talks about the special performance she and Derek are going to dance on Monday’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars”, the busy schedule and DWTS.

Below her answer about the Move performance. Be sure to read the whole interview on TV Guide. Thanks so much RayDeni for the heads up 🙂

This next episode of Dancing with the Stars is a special episode for you! What can you tell us about the Move preview that we’ll see?

Julianne Hough: I’m super excited! My brother and I were lucky enough to perform a couple seasons ago to “Elastic Heart” by Sia, and that was such a special moment for us because I think it was the first time we’d done something really different on the show than what people normally expect to see from us. It was amazing, it was very authentic and something that was very personal to us. This performance is an extension of that. Again, it’s very personal to us, it talks about family and our family dynamic and what happened in our lives. The message and the moral behind it is this is our life, we’ve gone through it, and it’s sort of our closure now, but everything is going to be all right, basically. It’s to “Unsteady,” which is such a beautiful song. It tells a story about our parents getting a divorce, and we have to be there for each other even though we feel pretty unsteady at the time, but we’re going to be looking at our lives in this scene we’re setting, as adult versions of ourselves.
We have a resolve at the end, which is kind of what we’re doing right now by reconnecting with our family and this closure — not even forgiveness, but everything’s okay and everything was supposed to happen how it did. We’re in rehearsal and we’re crying and figuring out our story behind it, it’s not going to be super detailed in the dance moves but for us it’s so great because we know the meaning behind the specific moves, which was very similar to “Elastic Heart.” For me I love being able to choreograph and tell a story, it’s amazing and really fun.

Julianne and Derek Hough to perform a sneak peak of MOVE Beyond on Dancing with the Stars

Woo hoo!! So excited for this!! We were not sure if they would but we were hoping and, it’s going to happen! Derek and Jules will perform a sneak peak of MOVE Beyond on Dancing with the Stars on April 3!! Can’t wait!!

Kellie Pickler talks about her life, her show, DWTS, Derek Hough and more

In a new interview with, Kellie talks about her show “I Love Kellie Pickler”, her life, her “Idol” days and more. She also mentions DWTS and how she is not a dancer, even though people believe she is…Derek is the pro 😉

Below the part of her interview about DWTS and Derek. Check the link for the whole article. We really loved this partnership from Season 16! ❤

“Not so hooked, though, on dancing, even those she and “DWTS” partner Derek Hough won the 16th season in 2013.
“I’m definitely not a dancer,” she said, with that smile showing through in her voice again. “The only reason that happened was Derek – he’s the pro.”
While “Idol” has given her a singing career, and she’s fine with that, her experience on “DWTS” has had a bit of a comedic downside:
“I go to weddings and parties and people go, ‘Kellie can dance,’ and they expect me to get up and do the Argentine tango!” she said. “I need professional help!””

Julianne Hough & Brooks Laich talk wedding and more on Instagram Live Stream (& Move Beyond Info) – February 16, 2017

Hello everyone…I recorded this two days ago but didn’t get the chance to post it till now 🙂 Jules and Brooks celebrated their three years anniversary on February 16. Jules flew to Canada so they’ll be together. We wish them all the best and to many many years to come being together and happy!

They did an Instagram Live Stream to answer fan questions…hope I didn’t miss much of the beginning 😉 They talk about their wedding and having kids, how they met, the proposal and more.

Jules also says about the MOVE Beyond VIP experience that it will be much different than the previous ones on Move Live on Tour 1 & 2. When a fan asks her to bring MOVE to Mexico, she says that she would love to and that they should think of it… Hmm…not sure if she was just being polite or she meant it…we sure hope they’ll decide to take MOVE outside the US 😀

About DWTS, she says that she should be going back for next season but since she will be on tour, she will have to fly back and forth every Monday for it and…we’ll see.
