The duo danced The Jive and received a total of 24 points! Derek‘s sister Julianne Hough showed up to cheer him on and will even be a guest judge next week!
“It feels overwhelming to have won three 9s on the first night!” Amber recently wrote on her Parade blog about the first week. “It’s really, really exciting. I’m happy with the scores, but at the same time, I feel like this has jump-started me to work even harder in rehearsals. Honestly, I didn’t think people would pay much attention to me! All I wanted was to do a good job.”
Amber added, It was also wonderful to have my Glee cast mates cheering me on…They were all excited when I told them I was doing it.”
