Dancing’s Derek Hough: I’m Excited About Amy’s New Legs! – I’m super proud of Amy and super happy with our swing. We had a little mistake. My jacket got in the way. I put my arm behind my back and she’s supposed to grab my hand, but my hand went inside my jacket, so she couldn’t grab my hand. It was no big deal. I thought she did great because right before we went on stage, her foot came loose! Because the floor is sticky, it was causing friction and it was coming undone. She needed a wrench to tighten it up, so I went to a lighting guy and he pulled out a Swiss army knife and she just sat on the floor tightening it up. She said she was really nervous and she wanted to do well. I said to her, “Listen, we’re rooting for you. Every step that you take is a success. Just remember that. Enjoy it. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself.” I could kind of see her relax and we went out there and she did a fantastic job. During the performance, it came loose again. She told me afterward that it was kind of moving around. It was interesting, but it was really cool and I’m really proud of the way it went. – Read more at TV Guide
