Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough – It Takes Two to Tango on ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough

Bindi Irwin and her DWTS pro partner Derek Hough are taking on the Argentine Tango for the Halloween episode of Dancing With the Stars. Last week, they gave a legendary performance from the movie Dirty Dancing and moved viewers with the routine. Hough and Irwin pulled off one of the toughest lifts in dancing and told TV Guide about an almost mishap that went down backstage. Hough explained: What happened was minutes before we went on -- seconds, really -- we were practicing in the hallway and her dress kept slipping as I lifted her up. You don't really get a chance to rehearse with the costumes, so we weren't really prepared for that. I would get her up, but her skirt would slip down and she'd start sliding. So I ran to wardrobe and asked them to thread her skirt to her underwear so she wouldn't slip. They were literally threading it while we were heading to the stage. We didn't get a chance to practice a lift with it threaded. Luckily it all worked out. Fortunately, there were no wardrobe malfunctions. Tonight, Hough and Irwin bring the attitude and the sexiness to the dance floor in addition to participating in a team dance. Their team tonight will be emblematic of the Ghostbusters.
