Bindi Irwin gets in on a cute photo opp with her mom Terri while leaving the studio in Los Angeles on Friday (September 25).
The 17-year-old conservationist met up with pro partner Derek Hough the next day again to continue working on their next dance for DWTS — a quickstep set to The Jeffersons theme song.
“This week is an absolute cluster-bad word. Cluster-bleep! It is TV theme week. None of the songs were cleared until Wednesday. I got my song Wednesday night 9 p.m. I had a whole idea Thursday morning, worked out for a couple hours, and then they called and said, ‘I’m sorry, the song didn’t clear’,” Derek shared in his new blog.
He continued, “We had to use the backup song, so I had lunch and iced coffee, which I never have. This is serious when I drink caffeine! I went back in there, we worked on the routine and then three hours after that, they said, ‘Nevermind, the original song cleared.’ I was in a predicament because production-wise, aesthetically, the first dance would be more theatrical and more showy, but in my mind, I had kind of moved on. She [Bindi] was already picking up the second dance. We ended committing to the backup. It’s been tough. We’re wildly behind. Everybody has really cool themes and look. Ours is gonna be a little more basic now because of the time constraints.”
