Nicole Scherzinger, Derek Hough


Dancing With the Stars is down a champion.

Derek Hough, who has hoisted the mirror-ball trophy three times during his run on the show, will miss the upcoming season while he's off shooting his feature-film debut, Cobu 3D.

"We wish Derek the best as he takes time off from Dancing with the Stars to pursue his film career and look forward to having him return to the show in the Fall," DWTS executive producer Conrad Green said in a statement.

He's now the second Hough to take off for big-screen pastures, following in the footsteps of sis Julianne.

But at least he's not going off to Ukraine to be the Bachelor.
