Dancing With the Stars: Derek Hough will sit out the spring season
EW has learned that Derek Hough will sit out the next season of Dancing with the Stars.
Hough will use that time to act. To wit: He’s headed to Broadway to star in Singin’ in the Rain, and he’s expected to return to Nashville for at least one episode.
The show’s winningest pro — he just won yet another Mirror Ball Trophy last season with Bindi Irwin — has sit out past seasons for other engagements but he’s never completely said goodbye to the show that made him a household name.
Dancing with the Stars will return on ABC March 21.
