The “Higher” video finds Bublé in an empty theater. He dances one-on-one with Erbert, but he is also surrounded by even more dancers, all dressed in red dresses. It’s a striking visual, and the dancers move in sync with each other to unique choreography.
The video has incredible energy and Bublé is a fantastic dancer. The theater stage, which is decorated with a large chandelier, provides a pleasant setting. Bublé and the dancers also settle in the seats and on the stairs. Not to mention it’s an incredibly catchy song.
In addition to directing the video, Hough also choreographed it in collaboration with Chase Bowman, Phillip Chbeeb and Makenzie Dustman, with Connor Gormley credited as assistant choreographer. The choreography features classic ballroom moves mixed with more contemporary styles.

Hough shared the video on his social media and posted behind-the-scenes footage. He shared a video comparing Bublé and Erbert’s rehearsal with their final performance. In another rehearsal post, Hough wrote that Bublé had never danced before.
the old DWTS professional dancer shared that his “jaw hit the ground” when he first heard “Higher.” He also seems to have hit it off with Bublé, as he added the hashtag #TheBromanceIsReal to one of his posts.
Hough’s sister and classmate DWTS The Julianne alum responded to Hough’s post, writing, “Damn you made the shit out of this video! I can’t wait for everyone to see it.
To make things even cooler, the music video was launched from space. Bublé’s new album, also titled Higheris out now.
