“Thanks for the well wishes. I will eventually need surgery to fix it properly , until then I am going to try my hardest to heal up and get back in the game by Monday. Thanks for all the love,” Derek wrote to his fans about his neck injury.
Shawn told Zap2It, “He’s going to be in all the rehearsals helping choreograph and making sure it’s under his control if he steps back in Monday. It’s still Derek in the rehearsals — it’s Derek‘s choreography, it’s Derek’s creative. Mark will just stand in as the rehearsal, the movement of it.”

I knew I couldn’t make the same record twice. I mean, I could have, but I’m not going to. With my fans, I’ve established a level of trust, and part of that trust is that I really don’t want to bore them.”
