Derek Hough finally gets a chance to dance in HSM! It took the series seven episodes to have him break out in song/dance like he does on TikTok, and it was worth the wait. His musical dance number with Miss Jenn is reason enough to tune in.

Look, I’ve been complaining for weeks that there’s not enough music in a show with “Musical” in the title. And this week, we get music. We can hold off “The Mob” from picketing the show as the song and dance start at about the 13-minute mark, and it’s a must-watch for fans of the series.

Despite having two weirdly staged storm offs by Nini (Olivia Rodrigo), I love that the creators are stretching her dynamic with Ricky (Joshua Bassett). I’m excited to see what “thorny” situations their relationship will get into in the coming weeks.

Sing and dance your way over to DISNEY+ for an actual musical edition of the latest HSM!
