Julianne Hough Is 'Not Afraid To Speak Her Mind', DWTS Judge Bruno Tonioli Says

Julianne Hough is all smiles as she arrives at the dance studio in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon (September 13).

The 26-year-old actress/dancer was seen chatting with good friend Mark Ballas before heading out for a bite to eat.

Julianne is joining the judges panel for the new Dancing With The Stars season and fellow judge Bruno Tonioli is excited about sitting next to her.

“I think there’s a perspective of someone having actually done it and won it, you see. It’s not easy, it’s a very demanding show. We’ve all been dancers, but she kind of fits in with the nature of the show, she’s not someone just plucked out of nowhere, she’s totally qualified to do it,” he shared with Parade.

Bruno added, “And obviously she knows the show inside-out because she’s a champion, a great dancer, and she’s not afraid to speak her mind. On our show you have to, in a way, stick your neck out a little bit. I love that. I love her energy, she’s gorgeous, she knows about dancing, she’s done it all and I’m really looking forward to having her next to me. It’s wonderful, it’s really really good, it’s perfect.”

FYI: Julianne is wearing a she + lo Next Chapter satchel.

    Is Ballas a homosexual ?

    @Jimmy: no! he has girlfriend, BC Jean.

    Cute!

  • Keller

    So she was a dancer, and then she was a country singer, and then she was an actress, and now a reality tv judge… she either has a hard time committing to things or she’ll do whatever it takes to stay famous.

  • Kenra

    @Keller: So you’re saying she’s a hard worker! I like her even more now.

  • Sarah

    Right on Kenra! I get so tired of people who criticize those who try different things.

  • Dave

    I love her.

  • mish`

    what are you even talking about?? “amy lee christian”?

    she was raised a mormon but even she said she doesn’t practice hardly anymore. she still has a strong faith but it’s different than when she was younger

    PS Nice new audi jules!

  • mish`

    and plus even if she was as religious as ever, which she’s NOT, your comment still makes no sense lol

    lamento pelos dançarinos e as estrelas que vão ter que aguentar essa chata falando asneiras. Lembro quando ela tava falando na season 17 e Leah Remini fez uma cara de nojo, eu pensei que Leah iria arrancar os cabelos da Juliane. Se ela fizesse isso eu iria adorar…. Só vou ver porque sou viciada nesse programa e porque gosto do TONY E DEREK.
    Não suporto J. HOUGH

  • Michelle porto (Brazil)

    sorry for the dancers and the stars will have to endure that annoying talking nonsense. I remember when she was talking in season 17 and Leah Remini made ​​a disgusted face, I thought Leah would tear my hair out of Juliane. If she did I would love …. I will only see this program because I’m addicted and because I like TONY AND DEREK.
    I can not stand J. HOUGH

    @Michelle porto (Brazil): I can’t stand you Michelle porto (Brazil). You are a horrible vile person according to everyone I’ve talked to. You are going to jail for what you did to Lena!!

  • Veronica Sanchez

    I love Julianne! I’m so excited to see her as a judge. It’s going to be a great season!

  • Betina

    @Michelle porto (Brazil): JAIL JAIL JAIL JAIL JAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VIVA LENA!!!!!!!!

  • Michelle porto (Brazil)

    Lena kkkkkkkkkkkk who use drugs to you guys about it. it kills knew kkkk

  • Shanae

    @Kenra: Well, it’s different if you can do all these different things WELL. What I personally don’t like is she has to PUBLICLY say that she wants to be a singer and actress BEFORE people can judge if she can or cannot do it well. It’s like she has to remind people that she’s talented when obviously she is (in dancing). I won’t argue to her fans, but getting people who don’t like her to like her, leave them be. People are entitled to criticism about a PUBLIC FIGURE. Choosing to be a celebrity–tweeting about it makes you appear like a commodity and yes, people judge. Hard fact. You can’t make people apologize for not liking her simply because you do or because you’re being “good” to people like her. So you like her, you’re a fan and you’ve expressed that. People are not a fan and they express it. That person is entitled to an opinion as you do.

  • Shanae

    @Sarah: It’s no biggie if people want to do different things, but if you’re getting other people to pay money and spend time and effort on something that you can do ‘sort of’ well, you could have spend time doing something better. Like watching someone else better at it. Julianne is a very talented dancer. And probably one of the better (or even best) performers in a pool of glorified mediocre ‘artistry’. But just because that is so doesn’t mean she has to be at the lead role all the time. Maybe supporting roles would be wiser if she’s brushing her acting skills. Since she’s used to being a champion, of course she has to be the lead… in everything she does?? I thought she wasn’t bad in Paradise though but she’s way too in a hurry to succeed in all the different things she tried just because she is popular and well liked. Peace.
