Julianne Hough Talks About Judging Dancing With The Stars Season 20, Judges Trying New Things, Ellen Show Heads Up

Parade interviewed Julianne Hough about being a judge on Dancing With The Stars. She also talks of how they will be trying new things this season. Interesting. Read on….

Why come back to DWTS as a judge instead of a dancer? “Being a dancer is a big commitment and it didn’t allow me time to focus on other aspects of my career. Being a judge is a great way to be a part of the show, but still have time for my other dreams and aspirations.”

Are you going to be OK stirring up controversy if you think you’re right, but others disagree with your opinion? “Whatever I say comes from a place of love. So I hope that if there is controversy, they know that it’s coming from a good place.”

What’s new for the show this season? “There’s going to be something where the judges work with the competitors. They’re still figuring that out, but I know that they’re going to try new things that they’ve never done before.”

More at Parade including talk on her new role in Grease. Thanks to Lori for the heads up.

A TV Heads Up: Julianne and Derek will be on The Ellen Show On Monday, March 2nd to talk on their new tour.

PureDWTS Season 20 Preliminary POLL: Who’s Your Favorite Couple? Who Will Win?

Here it is – our seasonal “first impressions” poll :-) Based on the results of previous seasons’ polls, our readers are often pretty accurate in predicting finalists and winners – last year, the top 4 in the “who will win?” poll ended up being the four finalists (but not in the right order).  Please, spare me if you’re of the “but we haven’t even seen them dance yet!” group that doesn’t even think we should be voting – this is strictly on first impressions, without dance experience factoring in.  Don’t like it? Don’t vote.  Easy. :-)

I went ahead and included Chris Soules & Witney in the poll – Tom was anything but subtle when hinting about Witney’s partner. :-) And if you need a refresher, here’s the link to the cast announcement live blog.
