Every Monday, Dancing With the Stars pro and five-time champion Derek Hough is sharing his behind-the-scenes video diary with Entertainment Weekly.

Just when fan-favorite pair Derek and Bindi are on a roll, it’s time for switch-up week, throwing a bit of a curveball into the mix!

“Dress rehearsal didn’t go very well,” Hough says in this week’s video diary.  “We kind of messed up a little bit, but I was talking to Alexa and hopefully she can have confidence. She got a little bit nervous, she got a little bit her head and forgot the steps and I really want her to do well.”

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC. 

As for Derek’s usual partner, she and Val seem to be rocking it. Check out the video above for more from a shirtless Derek, who also shows off his braided hairdo.
