Julianne Hough And Kenny Wormald Talk Of Footloose And Dancing With The Stars Performance At The Grove (Video)
In gearing us up further for Julianne Hough’s return to Dancing With The Stars next week, below is a new interview from Extra. Julianne and her co-star, Kenny Wormald, talk of the movie as well as giving us a little glimpse into their upcoming performance. The two will dance a duet and then the cast of Footloose will back them up. Julianne remembers her roots saying if it weren’t for Dancing With The Stars, she wouldn’t be where she is today as they “launched her career” and it’s her “home”. She’s excited to see her “bro” again too and tells her thoughts on him and Ricki’s dancing.
Also, in a new interview with Movie Hole, Julianne talks of some coincidental things about herself, Derek, Dancing With The Stars, and Footloose that fans might find interesting….
Julianne: For one, I grew up in Utah where the original was shot. Two, my first dance on Dancing with the Stars was to ‘Let’s Hear it from the Boy’. Three, my brother played Ren on the west end in London. Four, I played Ariel in this like small musical version of Footloose during high school. Five, when I finished my audition I rang up my mother and she was like, ‘Wait, I just have to turn down the radio’, I was like ‘Wait, what was that?’ and she was like ‘Footloose was playing’. She didn’t even know I auditioned for the movie.
Cool, huh? Here’s to a fun results show coming our way soon!!! Also, who plans to see Footloose at the theatre like I do? This is one movie I’m not waiting to see on my satellite like I usually do.
Julianne Hough On Coming Back To Dancing With The Stars: “I feel like I’m going to get all emotional” (Video)
Julianne Hough along with Kenny Wormald and Craig Brewer, chatted to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show today. They talk of their new movie Footloose and other fun stuff. There is also a part where Julianne discusses returning to Dancing With The Stars this week. She says, “I feel like I’m going to get all emotional. I’m going to be a wreck! Going on there and dancing to something that I actually left the show to do. Its going to be pretty amazing, but they’re my family and its my home. I can’t wait to go back!” Ryan calls Julianne “Darling” (so cute!). Derek is mentioned a couple of times. They play part of a new track from the movie. Great interview. This and more teasers below…
Thanks to Lori for the heads up on this interview last night.xx
Just as so many of us have hoped, Julianne Hough will be returning to Dancing With The Stars!! Next week, she’ll be performing in the Results show! Below are details from USA Today….
For one night only: Julianne Hough will cut loose on Dancing With the Stars next Tuesday, an appearance timed to the Oct. 14 opening of her new film — the remake of the ’80s classic Footloose.
Her beau, Ryan Seacrest, hinted that the show’s two-time winner would be returning while doing an interview with her brother and DWTS regular Derek. But the reality show queen turned movie star has confirmed to USA TODAY that she will indeed be twirling under the glitter ball once again.
She won’t be alone, Hough says. “I’ll be dancing with Kenny (Wormald, her co-star who fills Kevin Bacon’s shoes as Ren). We will definitely be dancing to Footloose, but we will have a few tricks up our sleeves in the beginning.”
Adding: Below is Julianne talking on her return to the show.
Note: Tom announced last night during the show that she will be dancing two numbers with one being a dance with her brother Derek.
Just a little scrap to tie you over a little until the premiere of Dancing With The Stars tomorrow night. Hey, sometimes scraps are NICE …especially this one of former pro and one of our favorites Julianne Hough getting her “cowboy up” with Kenny Wormald and her fellow cast members in the new remake of Footloose. I’ve been wondering if we’ll see Dancing With The Stars promote this movie and some of the dancing in it on one of the Results shows with it’s October 14th theatre release? Wouldn’t that be fun?
Leading up to the October 14th premiere of “Footloose”, Julianne Hough (former professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars and sister to Derek Hough) and fellow cast member, Kenny Wormald, have done a fabulous new photo spread for the September issue of Elle Magazine. You can watch them work their “magic” in a behind the scenes video below from E Online. No wonder these two were picked for their roles. I love what Kenny says on Julianne’s hard work ethic….
“She’s like the hardest working person I know,” says Kenny. “I was taking a nap one day, and our trailers were combined, and I was sleeping and I woke up because the thing was shaking. I was like what’s going on in Julianne’s trailer because she was working out with her personal trainer- getting fit during lunch while I’m taking a nap.”
