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:

'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 Recap: Theory Debunked; Season 10 Preview

Well, we're getting closer to crowning our QUEEN!!

It was another week for our beloved crop of queens in 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3, and this time, they were giving their all in an Andy Warhol themed ball!!

The final 6 were put to the test as they needed to create two separate looks for the runway, and it appeared our beloved Shangie was beginning to show some cracks.

Anybody watch season 3?

That's no surprise.

The queens brought their all to Ru, Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews and guest judges Shay Mitchell, and Titus Burgess, but only 2 queens could reign supreme:

That would be Bebe Zahara Benet and Trixie Mattel!

Trixie definitely needed this win to compete with Shangela./Ben Delacreme while Bebe's win stood out as a shock (more on that later).

The two battled it out to Diana Ross' 'The Boss', and it was no surprise that Bebe captured the spotlight and the win.

Shoutout though to Trixie's testimonial beforehand:

"On season 7, I los…

FIRST Teaser For Fox's 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'

I'm.....not sure what to say.

So, I'll leave it to all of you:


'Rocky Horror Picture Show' airs this fall on Fox.

'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 Recap AND Major Season 10 News!!

It's been a huge 24 hours for us 'Drag Race' fans!!!

Not only did we get another installment of 'All Stars 3' last night, but we also got the whopper of a reveal:

Season 10 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' kicks off March 22nd, AND every episode will be super-sized 90 minute episodes.......

AND Untucked will be airing immediately afterwards!!!

That's 2 WHOLE HOURS of 'Drag Race'!!

You can check out the official teaser below:

So, while we all take that in, yours truly is also here to talk about about last nights episode of 'All Stars 3', because it was a doozy of an episode, and there's a lot to unpack.

While the episode fell victim to being rushed (non-supersized episode), it also gave us some of the first true gags of the season. Following a somewhat underwhelming Snatch Game, Mama Ru revealed that the two winning queens (Shangela and once again Ben Delacreme) EACH won their lip sync and would each have the power to give one of the bott…
