The 26-year-old announced the exciting news on Good Morning America on Thursday (August 21) that she now has a permanent spot on the panel, alongside Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Len Goodman. She was seen touching down at LaGuardia Airport after a red eye flight that morning in New York City.
“It’s Judge @juliannehough! #GMADancing #DWTS RT if you’re excited!” the official DWTS account tweeted, also confirming.
Speculation rose earlier this week that Julianne would be returning. If you remember, she was a professional dancer on the show from season four through season eight, winning twice. Since then, she’s made a few guest appearances over the years.
Dancing with the Stars season 19 premieres on Monday, September 15 @ 8/7c on ABC!
