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.“
Be sure to read the whole thing on NECN.

On the April 10, 2017 issues of the magazines OK! and Life Style, we can see a glimpse of Derek, Jenna and Jennifer from the NBCUniversal summer press day. The trio (along with the rest of cast and crew) were there for NBC’s “World of Dance” that premieres on May 20, 2017!
In the recent stop of “World of Dance Tour” in Los Angeles, Kristyn Burtt had the opportunity to talk with the creators of the show, David Gonzalez and Matthew Everitt, and get some inside scoop on how the show evolved and in few days we’ll be able to watch it on our TV.
They also talk about Derek. Love what Everitt says about him! A really great article, be sure to read it all on Dance Network. Thank you Kristyn. And thanks bluekittens for the heads up 🙂
“[…] Once the show was set in place, it was time to wrangle celebrity judges. Derek Hough was one of the first talents NBCUniversal approached to participate in their new venture.
“He is a very charismatic and talented individual. We have been blown away by him — not just on the TV show,” shares Everitt. “He came to our Industry Awards show in February, which means a lot for the community to see talent get involved. He’s been fantastic.” […]”
NBC posted a new promo on their YouTube channel where we can see some more dancing (sneak peeks) of the contestants. The more I see, the more I want this show to start!
Wow! Wow! Wow! I LOVE these portrait studio photos of Derek!!! He looks AMAZING!!! Be sure to take a look for ALL on Getty Images! Wire Images also posted the pictures…
As it was previously announced, “World of Dance” was about to premiere on May 8 (Monday) and from May 30 it would move to Tuesdays. As we see today on The Wrap, the premiere of the show was pushed to May 30.
A top network executive told TheWrap that the move is all about creating a better and more consistent launch platform for a series they have high hopes about. Plus, this buys the peacock more time to market its hopeful hit.
The move also allows “World of Dance” to stay on Tuesday nights throughout its run and not switch over from Monday after three weeks, which was NBC’s original plan. Summer’s No. 1 network also likes the idea of launching “World of Dance” out of the season premiere of the mighty “America’s Got Talent.”
