Derek Hough: Why It's Best to Finish First - or Fourth - on DWTS

25 November 2014 9:50 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Derek Hough has won Dancing with the Stars a record five times as a pro. But if he's not going to win, he'd rather not even make the finale. Hough, 29, was paired with YouTube star Bethany Mota this season. And they reached the end of the road Monday, falling just short of the three-team finale despite some brilliant dancing. But in a way, Hough was okay with that. "We joked about this today," he told People backstage after the show. "The best place to come in is fourth or first. Second or third are no bueno, because you've got to »

YouTube Star Bethany Mota Has Been Eliminated From ‘Dancing With The Stars’

25 November 2014 8:07 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Bethany Mota had a nice run on season 19 of Dancing With The Stars, but the jig is up. The YouTube beauty icon has been eliminated from ABC's popular reality show, finishing just one place shy of the season finale. Mota, whose participation in DWTS allowed ABC to add a fresh face and attract younger viewers, ultimately finished fourth. She was eliminated during the first night of the reality show's two-night finale, setting up a November 26th showdown between Duck Dynasty'sSadie Robertson, Pretty Little Liars actress Janel Parrish, and Alfonso Ribiero, whose dancing skills should come as little surprise to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fans. Between their two dances of the evening, Mota and partner Derek Hough scored 76 out of a possible 80 points, including a perfect score on their second dance. Those high marks were not quite good enough, and they earned Hough a rare elimination; including this year, he has »

The 7 Best Dances From the First Night of 'DWTS' Season 19 Finals

24 November 2014 8:50 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The first night of Dancing With the Stars' season 19 finals began Monday night, and the competition was the toughest it has ever been. With four couples who all know their way around a dance floor like nobody's business, it was clear from the first moment that no matter who went home, it was going to be disappointing.

The stars got the chance to show off their skills with two different dances. The first was a routine that they performed earlier in the season, but didn't necessarily get perfect. Each star also had one of the four judges to advise them on how to improve their routine. It was really a night of dancing redemption.

The second dance would be a freestyle, which allowed the couples to choreograph any type of dance they wanted, and each of the stars brought their very best to »

Part one of 'DWTS' finale ends in shocking elimination -- hurry and predict Tuesday night's winner!'

24 November 2014 8:31 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Did you see that coming? Part one of the "Dancing With the Stars" finale ended with one of the season's most surprising eliminations. Only four of our users predicted all of tonight's outcomes: MrFilmkritik, Nate, Mike Warren, and kiiwiih. -Break- Could conservative fans push Sadie Robertson to upset win on 'DWTS'? They correctly forecast the resurgence of Alfonso Ribeiro, who struggled last week after injuring himself, but was able to deliver two perfect dances in a row this week: the first a reprise of his week-one jive, and the second a showstopping freestyle number that included an homage to his tap-dancing Broadway roots. But they also foresaw the downfall of Bethany Mota. The online star came to "DWTS" as a social-media powerhouse, with as passionate following on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. She also had the benefit of pro partner Derek Hough, the show's all-time biggest champ with five previous mirror ball trophy. »

A number of intriguing questions lingered going into Week 10 – beyond the usual, “Whaaaa?
