'Dancing With the Stars' 2014: Derek Hough & Mark Ballas Talk Season 18 & Tease Returning Features [VIDEO]
Dancing With the Stars pros Derek Hough and Mark Ballas recently spoke about the upcoming 18th season of the show, teasing that a few changes will be coming.
Hough spoke about the new season with That's Your Reality, revealing that "a few things are coming back" in season 18. The dancer added that he could not say too much ahead of the March premiere date.
Hough is a five-time champion of Dancing With the Stars and has won the past two seasons with country star Kellie Pickler in spring 2013 and Amber Riley in fall 2013. Though his fellow dancers like to speculate about who will have which celebrities, Hough admitted that he doesn't want to know "even a day earlier."
Based on Hough's comments, it seems as though he will return for at least season 18, as he probably would not know about any future plans if he weren't involved in some way.
Hough's friend and fellow pro dancer Mark Ballas is excited for the new season, telling CBS News recently that he always enjoys "when they switch it up." Ballas also discussed some of his dream celebrity partners.
"Jennifer Aniston, though I don't think she'd ever do it," he admitted. "I'm a huge Ellie Goulding fan. She can move. I went to her show and she's really good. And she's in really good shape . . . She might be awesome if she's got some time off of tour."
Dancing With the Stars season 18 premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
