Julianne Hough returns to "Dancing with the Stars," to guest judge for the first time alongside Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba, Monday, Oct. 7 (8 p.m.), on ABC. Hough was a two-time professional champion on "Dancing with the Stars" before making a seamless transition to award-winning recording artist and actress. She stars with Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer in Diablo Cody's upcoming "Paradise," which marks the Academy Award-winning screenwriter's directorial debut.
Hough starred opposite Josh Duhamel in Lasse Hallstrom's film adaption of Nicholas Sparks' "Safe Haven." Her previous film credits include "Rock of Ages," "Footloose" and "Burlesque." She launched her first shoe line, Julianne Hough for Sole Society, and stars next in the thriller, "Curve."
Hosted by Emmy Award-winning host Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet, "Dancing with the Stars" is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines that are judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Tonioli and Inaba.
