About Derek Hough
The Outstanding Choreography category of the Emmy Awards was changed to the Primetime Live Show for the first time on September 22, 2013, and all of the contenders in that category were required to develop and perform a number with the host of the show, Neil Patrick Harris. Along with the other nominees for Dancing with the Stars, Hough was included in that number of contestants.
Hough was raised in Sandy, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City, as the fourth of five children in a family that adhered to the Latter-day Saint religion. Marianne and Bruce Hough, who served as chairman of the Utah Republican Party on two separate occasions, are his parents, and he has four sisters named Sharee, Marabeth, Katherine, and Julianne.
Hough’s parents divorced when he was 12 years old, and as part of the settlement, they sent him to London to live and train with dancing instructors Corky and Shirley Ballas. Julianne, Hough’s sister, eventually caught up with him in London after an absence of several months. Hough had only planned to remain in London for a total of three months when he first arrived, but he ended up staying there for a decade (Julianne returned after five years).
In 2002, Hough was victorious in the WDSF World Latin Championship, and in 2003, he and Aneta Piotrowska took first place in the Blackpool U-21 Latin competition. He is a past recipient of the New York Dance Alliance Outstanding Dance award as well as the Los Angeles Outstanding Dancer of the Year award.
Hough, Julianne Hough, and Tessandra Chavez were the recipients of the Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography on September 12, 2015, and it was Hough’s second win in this category. Julianne Hough and Chavez each took home their first Emmy Award for outstanding choreography with this victory. Hough has been nominated for a total of nine Emmy Awards for choreography; this number does not include the two awards that he ultimately took home.
On March 18, 2014, Hough and his sister Julianne announced a summer tour that would include dancing and singing from both of them, as well as the appearance of a group of dancers employed by the Houghs who were chosen through auditions. The tour was going to be called “Move Live on Tour” and it was going to take place in over 40 cities across the United States and Canada.
The Houghs have announced that “Move Live on Tour” will make its way back out on the road in the summer of 2015, following the tremendous success of their tour in 2014. The tour began on June 12, 2015, and lasted through August 8, 2015. It stopped in nearly 40 locations across the United States and Canada, and it went to venues that were far larger than those used in the previous year.
Hough has also performed as an actor on stage, most notably in the West End debut of Footloose: The Musical at the Novello Theatre and at the 2015 New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Both of these performances took place in the United Kingdom. In the film and television industries, he is most known for his performance as the lead in Make Your Move and for his recurrent part in the musical drama Nashville, which airs on ABC. In the live musical television production of Hairspray Live! that was broadcast on NBC in 2016, he gave a performance as Corny Collins.
They made the announcement on December 14, 2016, through various social media platforms, that they would be going on a new tour in 2017, titled MOVE BEYOND Live on Tour.
Hough was a professional dancer on the ABC dance competition series Dancing with the Stars from 2007 until 2016. During that period, he and his celebrity partners won the show a record-breaking six times, setting a new high water mark for the competition. Hough was recognized for his efforts by being presented with eleven nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography, of which he was ultimately victorious three times. Later on, Hough joined the show as a judge, beginning with the 29th season of the competition.
