Derek Hough caught up with SiriusXM's Bevy Smith this week to chat about all things dance. During the interview, Smith asked Hough his thoughts on Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews being fired from Dancing with the Stars.
"I guess I was pretty shocked," Hough said. "Tom Bergeron is such a staple [on] Dancing with the Stars, and he's a good friend of mine. You know, we're friends. And he's just a good man. He's been there from the beginning and, you know, he's just a great guy."
Hough went on to suggest that the entertainment industry is always changing, saying that "nothing is certain." While he does think that Tyra Banks will do a good job as the show's new host, Hough admitted he sees both sides of the decision that was made.
"I feel optimistic," Hough added, explaining that he wishes nothing but the best for his DWTS family. "I'm always sort of a cheerleader for shows to succeed... especially for shows that I've been a part of, that I love and I hold dear to my heart, I want Dancing with the Stars to succeed and do well."
