Julianne Hough & Maria Menounos Bring Their Dance Battles to TV Tonight!
The BFFs have co-executive produced #DanceBattle America, a new special for ABC, which will premiere tonight (September 14) right after Dancing With the Stars.
After the ladies challenged America to join in on their battles, eight teams were chosen to go through a week of training and battle it out on stage in front of the country.
“I love that my family and friends coming together to challenge the Houghs on social media turned into a chance for America to dance!” Maria said in a statement. “Ever since I left DWTS, I’ve always wanted to find a way to give others the magical experience I had. Watching the submissions for this show had me laughing, dancing or crying. It’s so inspirational and uplifting.”
“The number one question I get from fans is ‘When are they going to make a Dancing with the Stars for the average Joe?’ so the idea behind this is that these families, friends and co-workers get to come to L.A. to work with a choreographer and go through a small version of the transformation that the celebrities go through on DWTS,” Julianne added.
Watch a preview below and tune in tonight at 10pm on ABC!
