Derek Hough made his debut on Hairspray Live! -- and he turned in one impressive performance.
As Corny Collins, the host of Hairspray’s fictional The Corny Collins Show, Hough surprised fans by expertly belting out classic tunes, “The Nicest Kids in Town,” "(It's) Hairspray" and “Ladies’ Choice.”
In “Ladies Choice,” Hough sang and danced to the song originally performed by Zac Efron, who played Link Larkin, in the 2007 big-screen movie. Right after the upbeat number, the 31-year-old rolled off his lines to the in-production Oreo commercial without skipping a beat.
Many were impressed by Hough’s performance, taking to Twitter to share their quick takes.
Fans admitted that they missed the 29-year-old actor’s presence on the show.
