Julianne Hough on Joining 'DWTS' Judges' Panel: 'It Just Kind of Made Sense'

Julianne Hough surprises the audience as she enters the Good Morning America studios on Thursday (August 21) in New York City.

The 26-year-old actress/dancer announced that she would be returning 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, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Foley + Corinna bag, and Sydney Evan necklace.

Julianne Hough is Officially Back on 'DWTS' as a Judge!

Julianne Hough has a permanent spot on the Dancing with the Stars panel!

The 26-year-old announced it on Good Morning America on Thursday (August 21) after touching down at LaGuardia Airport after a red eye flight in New York City.

“It’s Judge @juliannehough! #GMADancing #DWTS RT if you’re excited!” the official DWTS account tweeted, also confirming.
