Derek Hough Will Return to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ This Season, but Only for One Special Celebrity Partner

If one thing’s for sure, it’s Dancing With the Stars isn’t the same without Derek Hough in the ballroom! But, lucky for us, he’s already talking about a return for Season 25.

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 32-year-old said he’d come back if he got a very special partner. Watch the video below to see which celeb he would want to dance with!

Derek joined Dancing With the Stars as a pro dancer back in 2007 and has been paired with big time celebs including Jennie Garth, Marilu Henner, Bindi Irwin, Lil’ Kim, Brooke Burke, Kellie Pickler, and more. If Derek actually partners with Celine Dion in the upcoming season, it would be absolutely epic!
