When it comes to Dancing With the Stars, it’s tough to fake chemistry, but lucky for new partners Derek Hough and Kellie Pickler, that’s not a problem.
Since the blond duo made their debut in the Season 16 premiere, they’ve consistently impressed with their dazzling routines, and after their Week 2 jazz performance, they’ve been pegged as frontrunners to take home the coveted Mirror Ball trophy.
While we like to imagine that they karaoke Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” behind-the-scenes, we cannot confirm or deny that yet. We can, however, confirm that they are just as silly and adorable backstage, as seen in Derek’s inaugural Vine video, which features Kellie making ridiculous faces as he puts his hand in front of the camera to make it look like he’s squishing and circling her head. It’s hard to explain — just watch it below.
While many fans are hoping that they will get together romantically, that’s not going to happen, as Kellie has been married since 2011. However, we’ll still see them channeling their inner Johnny and Baby throughout the season!
