Derek Hough is the Blake Shelton of "Dancing with the Stars."

He's won the most titles since the TV show started - and he probably annoyed the other pros when he nabbed his fifth title, with Amber Riley, this past season.

But a win is a win, and when you've got five of them to your credit, there's no arguing your abilities. Especially not with Hough, who also won a 2013 Emmy for best choreography.

Hough will show off his moves Saturday at Mohegan Sun with Emma Slater, the newest dance pro to join the "Dancing with the Stars" ranks. Slater made it all the way to fourth place with dance partner Bill Engvall.

The duo is here for a Reality Check event at The Shops Concourse at Mohegan Sun. They'll do a little dance performance and then answer questions. They'll wrap things up with a signing event. Note: For the signing event, headshots will be given out for the celebs to sign. The signing is bracelet-only, with a limited number distributed starting at 8 p.m.
