It's a rare occurrence, but unfortunately true.
Six time Mirror Ball champion Derek Hough will sadly not be participating in the 22nd season of 'Dancing with the Stars', we've now confirmed.
This will only be Derek's second time missing a season, since he joined the show in season 5. He was also last years winner alongside Bindi Irwin.
This comes on the heels of his sister Julianne Hough announcing she would also not be returning as a judge. Len Goodman will be back at the judges table.
Will you guys miss Derek?
