Cast rumors have been swirling around Dancing with the Stars Season 25 for weeks, and now Derek Hough is speaking out about the rampant speculation legendary singer Celine Dion could be about to strut her stuff in the ballroom.
Derek, who’s appeared as a professional dancer on the ABC show intermittently since Season 5, recently spoke out about rumors Dion could be joining the show and teased that he’d be more than willing to head back to the ballroom to dance with her.
Though Derek hasn’t appeared on DWTS since he and partner Marilu Henner were eliminated during Season 23 last year, instead focusing his time on the Jennifer Lopez produced NBC dance series World of Dance, he hinted at a possible return to the series if the “Beauty and the Beast” singer signs up.
“I heard a rumor that Celine Dion was doing it, and I was like, ‘I would definitely come back for Celine,'” he told Entertainment Tonight last week of what it would take to get him back in the ballroom. “She’s legend status, icon status.” - DEREK HOUGH
