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

It’s a different look for Hough this week: He’s nervous for the Halloween week team dance.

“I actually haven’t lost a team dance in like 13 team dances,” he says. “But I don’t know. The other team looked really good today. So I’m a little like, ‘Uh oh! Hope we can tie.’ But I have faith in us.”

It’s easy to believe in him after last week, where he and partner Bindi Irwin nailed the Dirty Dancing lift.
