Derek Hough: Why He Won't Appear on Dancing with the Stars This Spring

Originally posted 01/13/2015 09:00AM

Dancing with the Stars won't have as much spring in its step when it returns for its 20th anniversary in March.

Five-time winner Derek Hough has to bow out of the next installment of the ABC show because he'll play the male lead in New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall this spring.

Debuting in March, the limited, seven-week engagement will feature Hough as Jack, a man with a special mission who will receive an eternal reward if he's able to help a man named Bernie keep his position as a New York City tour guide. Bernie's job is in jeopardy when Jenna (Nashville's Laura Benanti) reveals her plan to take the tour company "virtual."

Len Goodman to Leave Dancing with the Stars

Say it ain't so, Len Goodman!

The senior-most member of the Dancing with the Stars judging panel said he plans to leave the ABC series after the upcoming season.

Goodman told reporters that traveling back and forth to England has become too overwhelming. Goodman is also the head judge on Strictly Come Dancing, the original, U.K. version of DWTS.

"I've got my wife, I've got my son, my mother is still alive and she's in hospital – I've had virtually no time to go and visit her," Goodman said Monday. "So, I just need a bit of time off to get on with a normal life. And it was either Strictly went or the American one went or the tour went. ... I'm doing the spring one when I go out there ... and that's going to be my last one. Dancing with the Stars, next year is their 10th year ... so I think that's a nice place to stop."

Ribeiro, who has said he waited 10 years for a moment like this, became the latest amateur to take home the mirror ball trophy. "I cannot believe this!" he told host Tom Bergeron. "I don't even know what to say! These are happy tears!"

"He deserves this so much," added his partner, Witney Carson. "He's one of the most hard-working people I know."

Derek Hough: Why It's Best to Finish First – or Fourth – on DWTS

Originally posted 11/25/2014 01:00PM

Derek Hough has won Dancing with the Stars a record five times as a pro. But if he's not going to win, he'd rather not even make the finale.

Hough, 29, was paired with YouTube star Bethany Mota this season. And they reached the end of the road Monday, falling just short of the three-team finale despite some brilliant dancing.
