I love Derek, his passion and his choreography

    SYTYCD would be lucky to have him.
    I would love to have him on SYTYCD. It would be out of this world!!!

    I'm just so happy it's on next week!! Who knows, maybe Derek will choreograph a number for SYTYCD. Louie has done quite a few, so why not Derek?

    I would love to see Derek move from DWTS to SYTYCD, where he would be free to let his creative choreography shine without being a rule breaker or a pet. It would be a great showcase for his talent. I'd even like to see him as guest judge there. I do not like the special treatment he gets on this show.

    I would not like Derek to move to SYTYCD. He's my favorite of the pros and I don't watch that show, and him moving to that show would not make me watch it.

    The worst that can be said about him is that occasionally, he tries to be clever about including just enough elements in the ballroom routines with Kellie (or insert any past partner here) so that he can choreograph a freer, wilder routine. And honestly, he only gets called on it half the time, not because he's a judges' pet, but because he's really good at balancing the seesaw and giving the judges what they need. Mark tries to do the same thing, but he isn't half as clever as Derek about balancing all the elements. (Plus, Derek takes more care to make his partner look good, where Mark tends to shine the spotlight on himself a little more).
    I totally agree.

    Of course the show wants the recognition from an Emmy. All of the Reality TV shows do. The fact that Derek is gifted enough in choreography to perhaps provide them with one is incidental to the matter at hand. Why should Derek be criticised because he is gifted enough to give DWTS something to be judged in the race for an Emmy?

    Now, in my not always granted humble opinion, there have been things to get Derek on, and I have been there to note them, but I don't see his choreography as one of them or really his dance ability either. Note his strengths, and note his weaknesses, but be fair in the assessments and be able to distinquish between them is what I feel.

    Len flat out does not like props and all the creativity and flair that makes Derek's choreographies so enjoyable to watch. Len really prefers straight, excellent technique; however, this is 2013, and this is TV. This is a modern day audience not only clamoring for entertainment, but an audience that is accustomed now to a diet of flashing lights, and all kinds of video and sound tricks that I don't even know how to name.

    Len has somehow got to go with the flow. He has to be able to find a happy medium which will allow for Derek's tremendous creative ability and yet will not at the same time play down his (Len's) own sense of the "right" technique. Len just simply has to do this, or Len is the one - not Derek - who will eventually end up looking bad - like a critical old fogey instead of the excellent, older professional experienced judge that he should rightfully be considered.
