Derek Hough Dishes on Bethany Mota's DWTS Final Freestyle: 'It Signifies her Life & Strength'

Bethany Mota heads over to some fans before a late afternoon dance practice with Derek Hough in Los Angeles on Friday (November 22).

The 19-year-old YouTuber is prepping for Dancing With The Stars‘s final show on Monday night and Derek wrote in his last TVGuide blog about what their freestyle will be like.

“With Bethany, I’m trying to figure out what the right thing for her is. What are her strengths and what’s going to make her shine? So I’ve settled on telling her story. It starts off slowly and lyrically with beautiful shapes and beautiful lines. There will be other dancers as the dance builds to show her Motavators behind her. It signifies her life and strength.”

Derek added, “She’s created her own brand and her own career — her own everything, really. When I look back at the season, I look back at the moments that showcase how tough and fierce she is, like the Argentine tango and paso doble. It’s strong and it’s a big song, like Inception. It’ll be like Hans Zimmer is there!”

Can’t wait to see it!

Derek Hough & Bethany Mota Had A 'Rocky' Week With Their Dance Choreography

Derek Hough & Bethany Mota Had A 'Rocky' Week With Their Dance Choreography

Bethany Mota sticks her tongue out for an absolutely adorable selfie with a fan outside the dance studio in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon (November 15).

The 19-year-old YouTuber joined Derek Hough at the studio to keep working on their dances for Dancing With The Stars.

“Part of what made it tough was our song, ‘I Want You Back.’ The original is a great song, but it’s also such an overdone song. You’re not leaving much to imagination as far as the story, so I felt nailed down to the story,” Derek explained in his TVGuide blog about the song for their samba this week.

He added, “Once I got over that, it’s been good. The samba will be more playful with the usual elements. The contemporary is going to be about seeing a picture of your ex or someone you used to be with and reminiscing on that time because now you’re out of the picture. I’m really looking forward to that. I think it’s going to be great.”
