NEW YORK - "Dancing With the Stars" says two-time champion Julianne Hough is returning to the ballroom as a judge this season. She will preside alongside Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.
After serving as a company dancer-choreographer, Hough left the show in 2009 to focus on acting and music. Her films include "Safe Haven," "Paradise," "Rock of Ages" and the 2011 remake of "Footloose." She released a bestselling album in 2008.
"Dancing With the Stars" is hosted by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.
