Derek Hough Paid Tribute to Freddie Mercury of Queen
Queen’s frontman, Freddie Mercury, was a successful rock and roll fanatic in his prime. As a result, the singer and lyricist of the well-known rock band became noted for his outlandish fashion choices.
Several of these were honored on DWTS on “Queen Night.” “Freddie’s style was highly concentrated and always tight,” said Charlotte Pilcher, a British Vogue stylist, and creative consultant.
“And a seasoning of the Seventies U.S. motorbike cop series Chips… with Versace glamour,” she continued. She referenced his desire to dress in tight white slacks and narrow vests, as well as “a seasoning of the Seventies U.S. motorbike cop series Chips… with Versace elegance.” Pilcher added in admiration
Erbert Taunted Hough’s Outfit Choice
Mercury also favored military coats with epaulets on stage. Hough mimicked the singing legend in his outfit as a judge for the evening’s ballroom dance events.
This attire was shown to admirers in a slideshow of two Instagram photographs, and they were invited to vote on which one they preferred.
In the first slide, Hough was dressed in a white tank top and leggings. He then added a pink blazer with a Mercury-inspired design on the following slide.
Longtime girlfriend Erbert, on the other hand, aimed at one specific piece of clothing in the post’s comments section. “Are you wearing a mesh tank?” she said, followed by two-thumbs-up emojis.
Jenna Johnson, Hough’s fellow DWTS contestant, later echoed Erbert’s remark. “For me, it’s the fishnet tank top,” the two bantered and teased Hough about his dressing.
Is The Pair Getting Engaged?
For years, the Nashville star has been tight-lipped about his plans to propose to the “So You Think You Can Dance” alum. Hough told U.S. Weekly exclusively in December 2017 that he ‘felt no pressure from his family to walk down the aisle.’
“Oh, no!” “We have a lot of [family], like 55 nieces and nephews,” he stated after Julianne married Brooks Laich. “We’re fine, we’ve got plenty!” the “DWTS” judge said.

Hough hinted at an impending engagement two years later, when he attended the 87th Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Rockefeller Center in New York City.
“No one knows. You never know. “It’s the end of a decade, sorry, the start of a new decade!” The “Hairspray Live!” the actor told the U.S. in December 2019. “We’ll see about the 2020 vision.” However, the couple expressed their love and disclosed that the COVID-19 lockdown period only made them stronger.
Derek’s Queen-Inspired Look Sparked Interest Among Admirers
It wasn’t only his girlfriend that spoke about his outfit. Fans of the six-time mirrorball winner had mixed feelings about the sharp photos.
In the comments section of Hough’s post, they debated whether they preferred the Queen-inspired look with or without the jacket.
“Beautiful color! “I love the jacket!!” said one fan.
Second, an Instagram user stated emphatically, “No jacket!”
“Would Freddie wear the jacket?” a fan wondered. I know he wore the tank, but I don’t remember seeing him in that jacket.”
Following that, the series plans to pay tribute to Janet Jackson’s songs in its cycle of theme evenings for the upcoming event of the competition. It would be interesting to watch how Hough plans to pull off Jackson’s military clothing when that episode airs later this year. Hopefully, fans will get to see another charming banter from his partner.
