Earlier This particular week, the 33-year-old dancing pro admitted to ET’s Lauren Zima that will he gets a little nervous around his fellow World of Dance judge. “I’ve actually banned myself through dancing with Jennifer,” he confessed. “I’m such a clutz around her.”
Hough added, “I always have a pretty not bad partner I might say, yet with her, I somehow knock heads or we’re falling over each additional. the idea’s kind of funny.”
As for why he gets so thrown off around Lopez, 48, he confessed, “I’m not focused. I’m dancing along with also I get lost in her eyes. I mess up.”
In addition to World of Dance, Hough also spoke further with ET about his upcoming debut solo tour, Derek Hough: Live! The Tour. “I’m so excited about This particular tour,” he gushed. “One of the things I truly wanted to incorporate with This particular tour [is actually to] make the idea feel different.”
“the idea’s going to have a different vibe, a different energy, yet still very very entertaining. With the live music element to the idea — for me, when I go to a concert, when I go to a show, just that will kick drum … you can feel the idea in your chest,” continued Hough, who previously toured with his sister, Julianne Hough. “You hear that will violin or that will live music — that will live feeling, there’s just something about the idea. You can feel the idea, along with also as a dancer, the music dictates so much. So, to have that will within the show for me is actually so exciting, I just can’t wait.”
