Derek Hough battled Nicole Scherzinger on Thursday’s Lip Sync Battle, as the show paid tribute to Shania Twain. And even though Hough ultimately won the belt at the end of the night, he was there to claim a different prize: the evening’s guest of honor: Twain herself.
Before performing his last and what would be his belt-clinching song, “From This Moment,” Hough professed his boyhood love of the country music star.
“I’m so glad there are so many people here tonight to witness my 16-year-old fantasy come true,” Hough said, looking right at Twain. “I love you.”
Hough pulled Twain from her seat and proceeded to use the song as a backdrop for his staging a fake proposal, a fake wedding, and fake family photos complete with two blonde-haired boys.
The performance sparked some ribbing from show commentator Chrissy Tiegen about coming off a little creepy, which Hough didn’t help by joking that it was all real.
But Twain saw things a different way, saying, “It was beautiful, and I really did feel swept off my feet.”
