The two DWTS champs grew up together, when Derek and sister Julianne moved from Utah to London to live with Mark’s family and study dance. Now Mark and Derek (remember their Ballas Hough band?) are nominated for Best Bromance in the 2014 Young Hollywood Awards.
Mark tweeted to Derek with the big news: "Haha... @derekhough looks like we're nominated for best bromance for the @YoungHollywood awards. We made it lol." Derek shared Mark’s tweet, adding, "Boom!"
There’s more to it than that, though. Derek is also up for Hottest Body (of work), along with DWTS Season 18 fourth-placer James Maslow.
Here are the DWTS-related categories:
Hottest Body (of work)
Mark Ballas & Derek Hough
Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum
Key & Peele
Adam Levine & Blake Shelton
Seth Rogen & James Franco
(DWTS Season 9's Louie Vito is also up for Most Awesome Athlete. For some reason, DWTS is not up for Reality Royalty. Grr...)
They have tough competition, but we wish all of the DWTS reps the best of luck! And we’ll be expecting Derek, Mark and James to bring their hot bodies and bromance to the red carpet when the awards show airs Monday, July 28 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
