“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.

Brothers Val and Maksim Chmerkovskiy pose for some backstage pics with Sharna Burgess and Karina Smirnoff after performing at Ballroom with a Twist at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, New York on Monday night (August 3).
The four Dancing With The Stars pros took to the dance floor for a different kind of ballroom than what you see on the reality competition show.
In a recent interview with Zendaya, she opened up about her strong relationship with her former partner, Val.
“He literally takes care of me like a little sister,” she shared before teaming back up with him for a one-night only performance for Sway.
Zendaya added, “I wanted to start back dancing again and get back into the groove, since I haven’t been doing it for like a year. It’s been really fun. For us, we make our [dances] more about fun and hip-hop and all that stuff. We’re not doing anything slow — rumbas, passionate tangos or anything.”
