While living in their house, he became best friends with their son, Mark Ballas, with whom he also started a band.

Derek is young, charismatic, and loves to entertain. He was one of the dancers on the first Dancing With the Stars Tour and is currently a choreographer on the BBC (UK) hit show, Dance X. He's looking forward to bringing all of his creative visions to the Dancing with the Stars ballroom.

'Dancing's' Derek Hough Hospitalized

It was 'Dancing' with one less star on Tuesday night. E! News has learned that pro hoofer Derek Hough, paired with Shannon Elizabeth on this season's "Dancing with the Stars," was taken away from the set by ambulance following a neck injury on Tuesday.

An ABC representative confirms that Hough was rehearsing a hip hop routine with his sister Julianne and fellow 'Dancing' professional Mark Ballas when he suffered the injury. The network says he was taken away on a stretcher as a precaution and sent to a nearby hospital for tests, but he appears to have only sustained a strained neck.

The 22-year-old Hough, in his second season on "Dancing with the Stars," did not dance as part of the professionals' showcase on Tuesday night's elimination show. Instead, the planned dance trio soon became a duet dancing to a live musical performance by Kylie Minogue.

However, Hough returned to stand by his partner's side for the elimination results and is expected back for next Monday's dance-off round. Hough made his 'Dancing' debut twirling Jennie Garth to a fourth-place finish during last season's trouble-plagued contest.

I thought her tears and their attitudes after their dance were a little over the top. Her whining 'I did do the hips', was so babyish. Is this princess never criticized or told 'no'?

I was glad they apologized. I know your emotions can get the best of you, but they could have been a little more mature about the whole thing.
