Derek Hough, Dean Norris Have Dance-off At AMC Post-Emmys Party -- All the Details!
Nothing like a good ole dance-off! After winning at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. on Sunday, Sept. 22, Dancing with the Stars choreographer Derek Hough and Breaking Bad's Dean Norris rocked out in a hilarious dance battle while attending the AMC Emmy Party. Norris was in high spirits -- and for good reason! His AMC series just snagged an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series and to celebrate, the actor hit the dance floor and was quickly joined by Outstanding Choreography winner Hough.
"Derek was twirling around while Dean did snake moves as they went back and forth to Stealer Wheel's hit, 'Stuck in the Middle With You', an insider reveals to Us Weekly. "Guests circled the dance floor and sung along while cheering and Derek and Dean began taking guests hands and bringing them closer to join in. They were having a blast. Everyone was cheering and clapping along to the beat."
Those taking in the impromptu performance also included Norris' costar Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren Parsekian. Hough's sister, Julianne Hough, also cheered the guys on while snapping photos on her iPhone. "Dean was totally rocking out, he had sweat dropping down his cheeks! He and Derek were goofing off and loving the attention," the eyewitness adds. Norris was trying to be more funny as the professional dancer did a few more serious moves.

As the competition began to die down around 1 a.m., Derek and Julianne went back to hanging out with Parsekian for most of the night. The DWTS star sipped on a Heineken and even asked Parsekian to take a photo while he held his Emmy.
But alas, after some small talk there was still some more dancing to do! At about 1:30 a.m., Under the Dome star Norris and Hough went back for round two -- this time dancing to Jackson Five's "ABC 123" and "We Are the Champions" by Queen. Norris took off his tuxedo jacket as the guys glided and twirled behind one another during the Jackson hit. To top it off, Paul clapped along with the beat and eventually the dancers gave high-fived each other and proudly clapped for themselves before the night was over.
