Derek Hough & DWTS Pros Get Their Groove on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

It was an unusual sight last August when several of the Dancing with the Stars professional dancers showed up in jeans, T-shirts and hardhats at the Neenah, Wis., home of Rhex Arboleda.

Just weeks before Dancing’s season 11 began, the gang decided to pitch in on the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition episode, scheduled to air Oct. 17 (8 p.m. ET), and there was, indeed, a dancing connection.

“Rhex started a program called Move to the Groove that encourages kids to get up and move, dance and be active, ” DWTS pro Derek Hough tells PEOPLE.

  1. Good video of Danny singing Like That’s a Bad Thing at the NC State Fair last week.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gG24T8_K_6k

    Don’t always see this song surfacing in the YT videos, maybe because it is usually his opening song and people tend to do videos once they’ve settled in for the set.

  2. I think Danny’s opener last night has a tiny crush on him, lol. I heard she and her band stayed after their set to watch Danny’s whole set.

    LivDevine:

    Is opening for @dannygokey tomorrow night at prospectors! I’m super excited! Whose coming?
    Sound check complete! Pumped for tonight’s show! @Dannygokey is amazing and adorable! Super excited we play 8:30
    @Dannygokey and his band were ridiculous tonight! It was an honor to share the stage!

  3. LOL, that sing & dance performance to SBL and/or Elevator was a blatant statement that those songs are so Beiber kid-ish.

  4. Seeing all over Twitter that Carrie gave DC a shout out at her concert last night. Hope video surfaces!

    Really like that Kelly song.

  5. About the only good thing about Kelly’s hard drive getting hacked is the leaks are getting very positive response. Kelly will own the HAC charts next year with multiple number ones, and has some good Top 40 potential. It will be good for her to be able to dump RCA being on the top of her game.

  6. Cute covers of David Archuleta’s songs Something ’bout Love and Elevator. Both songs have charted 1 and 2 in the Phillipines on radio. Of course fans there are hopeful of Archie doing another tour there and I think he will by 2011.

    Pittsburgh Tuesday for benifit concert.

    Kelly’s confirmed she owes them 6 albums so unless they work something out for a greatest hits album after the one she’s working on now, it’s 2 studio albums until freedom.

    I thought I’d read Call Me was a song Kelly wrote for Reba that Reba liked but ended up not recording because it required too much range. I think that song could be a big HAC smash for Kelly though.

  8. Awww… The Philippines sure does love Archie, don’t they? Haha!

    I don’t know if there is any truth in this, but I saw this on Twitter this morning. David is supposedly going back to the Philippines in the coming year:

    @CheMerf
    oh my freaking heck!!! my friend from sony commented on my facebook that David is coming back in the Phils NEXT effing YEAR!!!!

    ETA: It’s David A. she’s talking about, based on the context of the other tweets she makes.

    Hee Mike the drummer finally got his video spotlight :) I love the intro into this song and this get his concerts off to upbeat start.

  10. Love that SBL / Elevator video! So cute. The Philippines sure has a lot of enthusiasm for Archie. I hope the rumors of him going back next year are true. He has a large number of fans there.

    I love Kelly’s voice. All I can think of is the Blondie song when I hear Call Me though lol. I like Kelly’s song! I just have to stop waiting for Debbie Harry to bust in at any moment. :p

  11. Love the mutual respect…this tour is gonna be good for Kris

  12. Adam looks so good in that interview. Good to hear he is thinking hard about his next album and that he has learned a lot. And I am glad Adam likes kisses too! Yes, I am, haha.

  13. I like Kelly’s song. It’s definitely an album track, I’m not sure about radio. But she sounds fantastic. Sucks that her hard drive got hacked.

  14. Awww. I’m so happy for Matt. Can’t wait until it’s his own CD!

    @Immattgiraud:
    Picked up “Home” by @JimBrickman 2day. And I said to at least 2 target employees “that’s my song, that’s me!” :) http://plixi.com/p/51267695

  15. Robbie Williams has #1 album in the UK this week.

    Robbie Williams scores greatest hits No. 1

    Robbie Williams has notched up his ninth UK number one album, as In And Out Of Consciousness: Greatest Hits 1990-2010 sells more than the rest of this week’s top five combined.

    The Take That star’s compilation shifted over 120,000 copies in its first week of release, becoming the second-fastest selling album of the year after Eminem’s Recovery.

    Williams, who has now sold a combined total of 57 million albums and 11 million singles throughout his career, commented that he was “thrilled” with his chart result.

    “It couldn’t come at a better time for me – twenty years into my career, and just as I embark on a new adventure with Take That. Thanks to all the fans who have supported me over the years – you have been amazing.”

    Oh, he also thinks that X Factor contestant Mary is better than Susan Boyle.

    ETA: the station is also supposed to play Lee’s new single on this show tonight

  18. “Enter Sandman” trended #1 on Twitter in the US earlier today after Adam performed a cover of it in New Zealand — and a partial video was tweeted. Now it is getting a lot of coverage on Metallica and Metal fansites. Mixed reviews from metal fans but he is getting some good reviews on it in unlikely places. And suggestions to cover other metal classics.

  19. Maybe we’ll see more of the rocker Adam so many AI fans were expecting. I love that he is so versatile-you can’t put him in a box, though people try.

    Just watched this weeks E Fashion Police I dvred yesterday. Joan Rivers showed off her gunmetal gray fingernails and said she fell asleep on the plane next to Adam Lambert and woke up looking like this.

  20. Emmuzka that was a great interview. Loved the part about people who wouldn’t give him the time of day when he was unknown, now want to write for him and be his buddy. Adam is so relaxed and such fun a fun interview. I can see why people like meeting him, he’s never boring or you don’t have to drag a response out of him.

  21. That is a cute video of sbl/elevator. They are so supportive of David in the Philippines. It is so nice to see that.

    Not bad when he did it “karaoke” with the words on the stage floor, starting on his knees so he could see them. :-) I’m not bashing him, he said this himself before beginning to sing. lol

    I agree he’s a hot rocker and I most enjoy his “rock” songs live. But, he loves the pop dancey stuff, so who am I to object? Especially since, so far, I’ve enjoyed those too. :-) Of course, he had to work hard to sell me on IIHY. But, after his live performance, I like that CD track too!

  23. Lots of tweets about how long the line is outside the venue for tonight’s Lifehouse/Kris show. Reports are it is taking up 3 blocks. Yay!

    That’s great girlygirl. This tour has been going great so far. Kris & Lifehouse seem to be a really good fit!!

  25. Not bad when he did it “karaoke” with the words on the stage floor, starting on his knees so he could see them. I’m not bashing him, he said this himself before beginning to sing. lol

    hmmm i must not have see the right vid. I didn’t know that he was sort of unfamiliar with the song.

  26. LOVE the Phillipines video of Archie’s 2 singles, and I’m beyond my teenage years! They need to teach Archie some of those dance moves! I wonder if he’s seen this video ~ he’d LOVE it! The great thing about Archie’s fanbase is that it covers EVERY age, and speaking for myself, I love just about every song on his CD (and he wrote 10 out of 12 this time around). Can’t wait for his tour coming up!

    Love Kris too, and he’s gaining lots of fans and living his dream! Such a sweetheart (as is Danny ~ he’s another one who is GREAT on tour)!

  27. I agree he’s a hot rocker and I most enjoy his “rock” songs live. But, he loves the pop dancey stuff, so who am I to object?

    I’ve said it before, but I think it bears repeating: what an artist likes best and what they do best are not necessarily the same thing. IMO, Adam is better at rock than pop. Not that he’s a bad pop singer, but rock is a better platform for his particular strengths: his voice elevates a rock song, and rock gives him more scope to use it. Kind of like an opera singer doing pop: sure they can do it, but it may or may not be anything special, whereas opera let’s them take off.

    That’s just my view on it, of course, and if Adam realllllly loves the dance stuff, he may well be able to find a way to make it a platform for his voice. There’s been dance genres that featured virtuostic improvisational instrumentals (40s big band, eg) so why not the same for vocals? Maybe that’s happening in his concert performances – I’ve not heard him, so I can’t say.

  28. I think Danny’s opener last night has a tiny crush on him, lol

    @Dannygokey is amazing and adorable! Super excited we play 8:30

    AW, sweet. What kind of music did she and her band play? Heard he had an Amish fiddler open for him in Lancaster, lol.

  29. IMO, Adam is better at rock than pop.

    ITA. Adam does good things with pop… but, to me, he does great things with rock.

  30. Adam is better at rock than pop. Not that he’s a bad pop singer, but rock is a better platform for his particular strengths: his voice elevates a rock song, and rock gives him more scope to use it.

    Even though I agree with this I have my doubts as to whether the “strict” rock afficianado fan would even consider letting Adam into their very restrictive club. His lifestyle may not be a good fit with some of the rock high brows who have a very limited interpretation of what is acceptable.

    The funny thing is that even though Adam points to pop his band is really a “rock” band for all intents and purposes. It has been amazing to watch his electronic album ditties being blasted apart by the band and by Adam himself. There are times I can’t even reconcile his live performance songs with the songs off of his album.

    I think there may be a real switch on his next album…don’t claim to know where it will go but the sound will not be a repeat of FYE.

  31. Now it is getting a lot of coverage on Metallica and Metal fansites. Mixed reviews from metal fans but he is getting some good reviews on it in unlikely places. And suggestions to cover other metal classics.

    Q3
    can you post the links to those sites I would be interested in reading those….or I guess MJ don’t like other blog sites linked can you email them to me smeggingnuts13@hotmail.com or tweet them to me my twitter name is the same as here
    thanks

  32. I think there may be a real switch on his next album…don’t claim to know where it will go but the sound will not be a repeat of FYE.

    Well I know Monte has been talking about working on Adam’s next album with him. Not sure if that means writting or just playing but you know that will make a big differance.

  33. Adam said his second album will be more focused and leaning a little bit more toward songs like WWFM and IIHU. He’s supposed to be working with Max Martin and I also heard Dr Luke. I like both of those guys and I think they can help him make a great second album. Hopefully maybe this time, we can get a collaboration with one of his favorite singers or musicians.

    I wish I could remember where I read this at, but Monte did a interview several months ago and was very informative about the plans for next year. As for the band, Monte said in a interview that they would be working on the second album with Adam. Also he said, that he wants to write some songs for the album and submit them to Adam and RCA for approval.

    If memory serves me right that was Rockstar Weekly (I think) I am almost positive it was a Canadian interview.

  35. I think Danny’s opener last night has a tiny crush on him, lol

    @Dannygokey is amazing and adorable! Super excited we play 8:30

    AW, sweet. What kind of music did she and her band play? Heard he had an Amish fiddler open for him in Lancaster, lol.

    She’s a country singer, name is Liv Devine. I heard that also for Lancaster, lol.

    There was a funny tweet from the guy in the opening folk band that he was going to pretend that all the people lining up early for that evening’s show were there for him. I guess being an Amish fiddle player / folk singer isn’t necessarily the path to mass appeal :) Even in Lancaster PA.

    ETA: this is one of Liv’s songs . Kind of like it.

    This person was at the concert tonight to take some photos of Kris and of Lifehouse. His pass/tickets weren’t at will call, and when Lizie found out, she tweeted him telling him to come around to the back door of the venue if he couldn’t get in. Then he tweeted back…
