Derek Hough Says He's 'Proud' of How Sister Julianne Handled 'The Activist' Backlash

Derek Hough is addressing the controversy surrounding sister Julianne Hough and The Activist.

If you didn’t know, Julianne, 33, faced a lot of backlash after it was announced that she would be judging the new CBS series, which would follow activists around the world.

Many people called the show “tone deaf” and brought up how Julianne wore blackface with her Halloween costume back in 2013.

Julianne then responded to the criticism, admitting that she is “not qualified to act as a judge.”

During his appearance at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival over the weekend, Derek, 36, responded to Julianne‘s response to the backlash.

Derek Hough Dances Solo for the First Time in 23 Years on 'DWTS' Finale (Video)

Derek Hough hits the stage for an incredible solo performance during the season finale of Dancing With the Stars, which took place on Monday night (November 23) at the studio in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old performer, who was a judge for the first time this season, hasn’t performed by himself in 23 years!

“It’s a solo performance,” Derek told Entertainment Tonight. “I am dancing by myself and I am not sure why I decided to, but I am doing it. I have not danced a solo since I was, like, 12 years old, that is the truth. So here we go!”

“To be honest with you, it was kind of a COVID thing,” he added. “Usually I would be like, ‘I want to do a group number,’ something like that, but it just logistically made sense to do a solo. It has challenged me, for sure, but I am looking forward to it. It’s gonna be fun and I will say this: it’s an homage to some of my heroes.”
