Dancing With the Stars' latest episode saw the show's newest judge team up with his current flame for a special routine! As ET Canada shares, Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert took to the ballroom floor during Monday's episode of the show, and their performance was certainly a memorable one!
Hough and Erbert dance a passionate Paso Doble
Dancing With the Stars fans were eagerly anticipating Hough and Erbert's performance ever since it was announced earlier this month, and it's safe to say they weren't disappointed! The duo wowed the crowd with their Paso Doble, which they performed to the Taalbi Brothers' song "Uccen". "hayley erbert and derek hough shut it down," one DWTS fan tweeted after watching the couple's routine.
ET Canada mentions that Hough and Erbert have been together since 2015, after meeting while they were part of Dancing With the Stars! Hough competed as a pro on the show for many seasons, going on to win six mirrorball trophies before he joined the judges' panel in season 29. As for Erbert, she started as a troupe dancer before going on to become a mentor for DWTS Juniors. Their dance on Monday night marked Hough's return to the ballroom floor for the first time since 2017!
Dancing With the Stars season 29 has had its mishaps
Dancing With the Stars returned last month for season 29, and the show has had many memorable moments over the past few weeks— both good and bad! While Hough and Erbert's gorgeous dance was certainly a highlight for many DWTS fans, new host Tyra Banks recently made an embarrassing mistake.
That's because during the live show on October 5, Banks mixed up the names of the couples in the bottom two! Also, right after Tiger King star Carole Baskin performed her first dance during the show's premiere, an advertisement aired that was put out by her missing husband's family, taking the spotlight off Baskin's routine.
