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.

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. Now, she joins longtime judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Len Goodman.

Dancing with the Stars season 19 premieres on Monday, September 15 @ 8/7c on ABC!
