Dancing With the Stars 2013: Amber Riley Paired With 4-Time Winner Derek Hough
The cast for Season 17 of Dancing With the Starswas revealed on Good Morning America yesterday (September 4), and we’re already evaluating how these celebs and their professional partners will do this season. Lucky for former Gleestar Amber Riley, she got paired up with 4-time winner — and fan-favorite — Derek Hough.
We couldn’t have asked for a better pairing! Given his past history with past winners Brooke Burke, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Kellie Pickler, Amber is definitely in good hands. It helps that she’s had a bit of dance experience on Glee, and hey, if they ever need a performer, she could stun the crowd with her pipes too.
Given Amber’s Glee fandom and Derek being DWTS royalty, this combo seems like a front-runner already — and they haven’t even hit the dance floor yet! Oh, and don’t worry, these two are already besties.
“Apparently Hough and I have to come up with a hybrid name (according to him) but our names sound so wrong together LOL HELP! Suggestions?” Amber tweeted.
