Derek Hough made the “American Ninja Warrior” obstacle course his … dancing partner … on Red Nose Day. And he led.

The “Dancing With the Stars” and “Grease: Live” alum took on the charitable challenge Thursday, completing the abbreviated — and yes, easier — celebrity run. In doing so, dude raised $30,000 for the cause.

Let’s be clear: the course wasn’t simple. Hough still had to negotiate six obstacles, including the fly wheels, battering ram and the warped wall. He got a little wet from that first one.

The fly wheel-fall wasn’t a bad thing, however — especially for the ladies. Not only did Hough get another chance, he also ripped his soaked shirt off.
