Julianne Hough on 'DWTS' Return: 'It Just Kind of Made Sense'

Julianne Hough on 'DWTS' Return: 'It Just Kind of Made Sense'

Julianne Hough gets super excited while walking out onto the Good Morning America stage on Thursday (August 21) in New York City.

The 26-year-old actress/dancer announced that she would be retuning to Dancing with the Stars as a permanent judge this fall. Watch her interview below!

Dancing with the Stars has always been a part of my family,” Julianne said. “That’s where it all began for me, so it just kind of made sense.”

When asked whether she would be biased against her brother Derek, she said, “I think that’s a very valid question. It’s going to be how it was when I guest-judged. It’s not necessarily about Derek and the pro dancer, it’s about the collaboration, the team effort, and what they’re doing as a partnership, and really the celebrity can do to improve each week.”

FYI: Julianne is wearing a Olcay Gulsen top and skirt, with Stuart Weitzman shoes.

Sad news – Maksim Chmerkovskiy just confirmed that he won’t be dancing next season on ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars.

“I’m done dancing,” the 34-year-old dancer said on The View on Tuesday (July 29). “I feel like it’s time.”

“I loved the experience,” he added. “When I came back to the show, it was not the same…I was different, probably…When I came back, I saw this amazing talent, Val [Chmerkovskiy, his brother] included…I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better, I was taking up a huge spot.”

Maks finally won the mirror ball during season eighteen with Olympian partner Meryl Davis.

ARE YOU SAD that Maks won’t be dancing next season???
