Derek Hough & Ryan Hilariously Compare Their ‘Shallow’ Tributes Post-Oscars

Tell me somethin'! Derek Hough stopped by the studio on Monday, February 25, after the 2019 Oscars and Ryan Seacrest couldn’t help but compare his own A Star Is Born parody to the dancing pro’s rendition 😂

In case you missed it, Ryan and his Live With Kelly and Ryan cohost Kelly Ripa spoofed the Oscar-winning film in promotion for their After Oscars telecast. Hough also paid tribute to the song’s film with a music video after signing a bit of the jam on social media with his girlfriend Hayley Erbert.

Ryan’s rendition was a bit more, um, LOL, though. 

“I’m not going to lie, that did not sound like you, Ryan, that was really good,” Derek said, before acknowledging Ry’s costume. “… That beard was something else … It looked like that beard had been starched.”  


“I looked like the caveman from Geico,” Ryan hilariously admitted. “… I think the beard department sabotaged me.”

Watch back both tributes in the videos above and listen back to their full interview below for more, including what to expect with the new season of World of Dance, which premieres on NBC on Tuesday, February 26, at 9/8c!
