Our boy Derek Hough took home the award for Outstanding Choreography at the 2013 Emmy Awards in L.A. on September 22 and we couldn't be happier for him. Per usual, the DWTS pro looked super hot on stage and even topped off his acceptance speech with an enthusiastic "Holy crap!" He took the words right out of our mouths!
Derek was nominated for two Emmys this year, with four of his DWTS dances acknowledged. Needless to say, it's an exciting night for this talented dancer and his family. Speaking of which, Derek's sister Julianne joined him at the show, cheering him on with a standing ovation. We're feeling the happy tears coming on!
With an Emmy under his belt, we're sure Derek will pull out all of the stops on Dancing With the Stars Season 17, with his partner, Glee's Amber Riley. Bring on the Cha-Chas!
