Every fan of “Dancing With the Stars” knows that Derek Hough and Mark Ballas were raised together and are the tightest of friends. They even purchased a house together. And now the duo has been nominated for “Best Bromance” at the Young Hollywood Awards, according to Wetpaint on June 30.
Both Mark and Derek, as well as Derek’s sister Julianne, grew up in London with Mark’s family. That’s where they studied dance with Corky and Shirley Ballas, Mark’s parents.
Mark immediately let Derek know via Twitter. “@derekhough looks like we’re nominated for best bromance for the @YoungHollywood awards. We made it lol.” Derek shared the tweet and added “Boom!”
Derek Hough is also nominated in the “Hottest Body (of work)” category. James Maslow, who came in fourth in Season 18 with Peta Murgatroyd, is also nominated in that category. The rest of the nominees for “Hottest Body (of work)” are Kellan Lutz, Chrissy Teigen and Kate Upton, along with Derek and James.
In that “Best Bromance” category, Derek and Mark are up against Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, Key and Peele, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and Seth Rogen and James Franco.
Who would you pick for best bromance if you had to vote? Would you pick Derek and Mark? If I were voting, out of the selected nominees, I think I would vote for Seth Rogen and James Franco. I love Derek and Mark, but there just seems to be something more with Seth and James.
And there’s one more representation from “Dancing With the Stars” at this awards show. Season 9’s Louie Vito is up for “Most Awesome Athlete.”
There’s going to be a lot of “DWTS” representation in the Young Hollywood Awards which will be broadcast on Monday, July 28 at 8 p.m. on the CW Network. Don’t forget to tune in and see if Derek and Mark win!
