Derek Hough is a six-time winner of "Dancing with the Stars." Now he’s taking over the judge’s chair on his new show, "World of Dance" – and he’s here to tell The Doctors all about it.
“We always talk on the show about dance being good for your health, and clearly you’re in good shape,” ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork greets Derek, “But now you’re judging?” Derek explains that "World of Dance" is “a big competition show for dancers all around the world, all different styles.” Viewers will see groups, soloists, duets – and the prize is a cool million dollars.
Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo are Derek’s co-hosts, and he says the level of dance on display is amazing. “There are times when I’m like ‘WHAT? THE WHAT!? I was out of my seat and in tears a few times.”
He hopes that the show and his summer live dance tour with his sister Jennifer, “Move Beyond,” will inspire people across the country to move more. “Motion equals emotion,” he says. “Motion directly affects the way you feel.” We can’t all dance our way to a million-dollar prize – but moving more can make us all feel like a million bucks.
Catch "World of Dance" May 30 on NBC at 10/9c and get more information on "Move Beyond: Live on Tour" here.
