Derek's Symphony of Dance tour officially wrapped in San Diego, California, on May 19, five months after Erbert was hospitalized for a cranial hematoma and required an emergency craniectomy.

The 29-year-old made her triumphant return to the stage to complete her stretch on the Symphony of Dance tour in April, where she received a standing ovation from the audience.  

As for Julianne, the actress/pro-dancer/Dancing With the Stars co-host stunned on Sunday in an angelic blush gown on the carpet at the Tony Awards, where she was tasked with presenting the awards during "Act One" of the ceremony, also known as the Tony Awards Pre-Show.

"I think just being an artist and a performer my entire life, being on Broadway was a true testament of an artistic athlete," Hough shared. "I mean, it is the hardest job in the world to be on Broadway."

"So just giving it up for all of the incredible nominees -- obviously tonight, but anybody who just takes a risk and is courageous enough to step into Broadway, I give you all the props," she added. "It's not an easy job."
