Derek Hough Admits He Used To Wear His Sisters’ Hand-Me-Downs

Published on July 18, 2017.

World of Dance judge and Dancing With The Stars instructor Derek Hough recently told Us Weekly that growing up in a house with many sisters left him with some difficult outfit choices as a child.

He recalled that his sister, Dancing with the Stars costar Julianne Hough, gave him all her hand-me-downs and he became accustomed to wearing them after he made a few adjustments. “When I was younger, all my hand-me-downs were girl’s clothes. So, like, if I got shoes, they’d have some pink in it because they were my sisters’ too,” Hough recalled. “I would have to get a Sharpie pen and color in the pink to black so that people didn’t know they were girl’s shoes.”

The Dancing With The Stars coach currently serves as a judge on the hit NBC show World of Dance alongside costars Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Jenna Dewan Tatum. “I think that the energy the show provides is just super high-octane. It’s very heartfelt,” Hough said. “There are those moments when I film the show, and then I’ll be home watching the show and I’m like tearing up. I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, I already saw this.’ But it still gets you.”

World of Dance was produced by Jennifer Lopez and has been officially picked up for season 2. The series gives dancers a platform to show off their talents and compete for a $1 million grand prize. World of Dance airs on NBC on Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
