I have been a fan of theirs for years on Dancing With The Stars. And I totally have a girl crush on Julianne. She just seems like perfection. I love how they are both such kind and positive people. I feel like that's kind of a rare breed in Hollywood. Not to mention, they are wildly talented! Amazing dancers (obvi), singers, musicians, and they had me laughing so hard too!
We had to drive quite a way to the venue, through crazy rush-hour traffic and Friday cottage traffic. Basically it took four hours to get there and only less than two on the way back. If you're from the Toronto area, you know that the 401 and 400 are no joke.
Our show was in Casino Rama and the drive was totally worth it. I would definitely go a bunch more times if I could. Mike might be content with only going once. He's such a trooper for making the trek and sitting through 2 hours of dancing with me. Totally not his thing and he totally deserves several husband points for that one.
The show had so much content and there was never a dull moment. They had 8 other dancers on stage, two of which I recognized from So You Think You Can Dance. Derek and Julianne went out into the crowd to dance with some of the audience and even brought a few people up on stage! Derek also played guitar and they both sang a ton. They had little mini inspiration speeches, talked about their DWTS experiences, and even ragged on each other a bit.
It was great! I give them mad props for doing this show almost every night of the week during this tour. It's no wonder they are in amazing shape! The next night they were headed to Detroit to do it all over again.
I tried to upload a couple videos to really show how great the show was. They may be small and grainy, but please forgive me, I am still learning about this quality blogging thing and I want these to help remember the night. Unfortunately I forgot our good camera at home and the iPhone had to do!
So, photo/video dump!
