ET spoke with Derek Hough ahead of the all-new season of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ premiering Monday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Instead of taking to the ballroom, the six-time mirrorball champion will be serving as a judge. Len Goodman, who is currently in the U.K. and unable to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions, will still be a part of the show in a different capacity, sharing his ballroom expertise remotely. Hough previously competed as a pro on ‘DWTS’ for 17 seasons, winning the mirrorball a total of six times, the most of any other pro. He took home first place with Brooke Burke (season 7), Nicole Scherzinger (season 10), Jennifer Grey (season 11), Kellie Pickler (season 16), Amber Riley (season 17) and Bindi Irwin (season 21).
