This year’s at-home singalongs on ABC have been a huge hit with families, so of course, the network is putting on a yuletide one happening on Monday, November 30 called the Disney Holiday Singalong. Dancing With the Stars pro/judge Derek Hough and his girlfriend Hayley Erbert are headlining the family-friendly festivities. Here’s what you need to know about their performance and their relationship, plus what other performances are headed your way as ABC ushers in the holiday season.
Hough and Erbert Are Performing Two Songs
The darling dancing duo will be performing “Hey Santa” and “Jingle Bells” — we hope that’s the “Hey Santa” originally recorded by Carnie and Wendy Wilson because that is a highly underrated holiday tune.
Either way, expect some exceptionally good dance moves from the couple. Hough recently showed off his Fred Astaire-esque talent during the Dancing With the Stars finale and we expect this performance to be just as spectacular.
Hough and Erbert have been together for over four years. They were first spotted together on the set of Dancing With the Stars back in August 2016 when Erbert was part of the DWTS troupe and have been together ever since. But they are not engaged or married yet.
Back when they first started dating, Hough told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show (via People) that he could “see [himself] married with kids within the next five years,” which is right around the corner for Hough and Erbert.
They definitely have Hough’s mom’s blessing. Marriann Hough told KTLA in 2017, “I love Hayley … She’s so down-to-earth and she has the best smile, it just makes you feel comfortable and happy … I think they match up very well.”
Hough’s sister Julianne is also performing for the Disney Holiday Singalong. If you’ve ever wondered about the rest of their siblings — they’re the two youngest of five — check out our profile of the Hough family here.
Julianne Hough is performing a couple of classic Christmas/Disney songs. Here is what you need to know about the rest of the lineup.
