Derek Hough Not Returning For Season 22 Of 'Dancing With The Stars'

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?


  1. Omg. Sorry to hear this. You will be dearly missed.

  2. Derek will be truly missed for his innovative choreography; more so for his positive attitude and inspiration. He made it about his partner's journey and always raised the level of choreography. One correction: he did miss Season 12 when he filmed an independent film "Make Your Move" with BoA.

  3. Derek is the main reason I watch the show! He is so talented and brought so much to the show. I am deeply sadden!!

  4. Derek will be missed. He is a super dancer with a good heart. Hope to see you back next season.

  5. I must agree with many of the previous comments. Derek, You will be sorely missed. You bring so much magnetism to the dance floor and your audience. I look forward to all the new and magical dancing you will bring back with you. Looking forward to next season already!!!

  6. Yes, I will miss Derek but I will not miss Julianne as a judge. I do miss her as a dancer though.

  7. No Derek? :( well that isn't happy news. He is such a great dancer and teacher. It was always GREAT to see who and what the new challenge for him was going to be. *sigh* I guess life moves on for all of us. All the best Derek!!!

  8. Derek is the reason I watch Dancing with the Stars. Won`t watch it with him gone.

  9. Oh no, he's my favorite pro and such an amazing dancer/choreographer!

  10. He is amazing to watch as a dancer. I'm am very sad to hear he will not be on the show. We'll see how the show does in ratings. Please come back Derek!!

  11. Yes I will definitely miss him.

  12. Of course I'll miss him and I appreciate the effort he put forth to be on last seasons show. Perhaps he'll grace us with his appearance next season.

  13. He's one of the. Best reason's to watch he is very personable, while the others may be fun to watch and look at they aren't as much fun to listen to, and they don't have his umph.

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor


 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

WATCH: Britney Spears SLAYS Her Billboard Music Awards Medley!!

I haven't with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....


Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

Check out the FULL performance below!!

And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:

Scarlett Johansson DROPS OUT Of Transgender Film: Releases New Statement

The public outcry/backlash was enough.

Scarlett Johansson has officially dropped out of upcoming film "Rub & Tug", which is based on the life of transgender man Dante 'Tex' Gill.

Scarlett issued a statement through OUT Magazine:

"In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project. Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive. I have great admiration and love for the trans community and am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues. According to GLAAD, LGBTQ+ characters dropped 40% in 2017 from the previous year, with no representation of trans characters in any major studio release. While I would have loved the opportunity to bring Dante’s story and transition to life, I under…

Halsey BLASTS Perez Hilton Over Pregnancy Question

Well, why not use the same insult?!

Perez Hilton felt the wrath of singer Halsey over social media yesterday, when the celebrity blogger shared an article wondering if the singer was pregnant.

Halsey responded to his tweet with:

"I mean, YOU'RE about to be if you keep riding my dick like this" 

Perez simply responded to her tweet with the popcorn emoji:

Let's also remember that Rihanna came up with that drag first, when she blasted a magazine for an article they wrote about her:
