Missing Julianne Hough? If so, tune into the Miss USA pageant this Sunday as she will be co-hosting. What’s more, she is also the creative director. Below is more from Broadway.com.

Emmy® Award winner Julianne Hough was today announced as co-host and creative producer of the 2016 MISS USA® Competition. Hough will join Emmy® Award Nominee Terrence “J” Jenkins on stage this Sunday, June 5 (7:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX from the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

A true triple-threat, Hough is known to audiences around the world for her success as an actress, dancer and singer in film, television and on stage.

Make Your Pro Wish List For Dancing With The Stars Season 23

Dancing With The Stars Season 23 will come faster than we think, so, we better make our new Pro Wish List. Question: If you were to pick 12 pros (6 males and 6 females), who would they be? You can also pick a few Alternatives in case they make the cast a little bigger, in case your main choices don’t work out, or they can’t do it for various reasons. You can also pick who you think should be in the Troupe. Let us know your picks in comments and then we’ll send this post to TPTB in a few weeks.

Below is my Pro Wish List (yes, I want some new faces):

Male Pros: Derek Hough (I don’t know how they’d swing this being he will be busy with “Hairspray” and “Singing In The Rain”, but DWTS is just not the same without him! 🙁 ), Gleb Savchenko (he’s most likely doing SCD, but, how cool it would be if they switched him to our version and a dream come true), Mark Ballas (he’s so creative. This is a must choreographer), Sasha Farber, Shannon Holtzapffel, Dennis Jauch (Shannon and Dennis were awesome in the troupe this past season. They were full of muscle and showy too).
Alternatives: Alexey Balash (one of the best dancers on DWTS Russia. He’s one of the world’s best choreographers too), Tristan MacManus, Kiril Kulish

Female Pros: Peta Murgatroyd (if she can’t, see the Alternatives, but, I am so going to miss her), Sharna Burgess, Allison Holker, Edyta Sliwinksa, Karina Smirnoff, Lindsay Arnold
Alternatives: Elena Samadonova (what a dream come true this would be. She’d make an awesome Judge too), Julianne Hough (DWTS needs a super hire dancer and choreographer like her), Emma Slater, Kym Johnson, Witney Carson

Troupe: Nika Kljun, Sonny Fredie Pedersen, Hayley Erbert, Paul Karmiryan, Paul Barris, Jenna Johnson

We plan to do a Celebrity Wish List very soon as well! So stay tuned!

Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas Vacations With BC Jean In Hawaii

Some of the pros of Dancing With The Stars are taking some wonderful time off from the show. Mark Ballas and fiancé BC Jean went to Hawaii. Read below for what he said about it. #AWWwwMoment

5 days ago my fiancé @bcjean woke me up at 6am & told me to get up & be ready to leave the house in 20 minutes. I was so exhausted and a little resistant, but she told me I didn't have a choice. So, I rolled out of bed, got in the shower & was dressed in 15 minutes. The next words out of her mouth were "I packed for you", as she gestured to my big suitcase, and before I knew it we were in an uber headed to an unknown destination. The hour long car ride had me confused, guessing the entire time as to where we were going. Then we pulled up to LAX airport, but it wasn't until she checked us in and handed me my boarding pass did I know exactly what was going on. She said "I'm taking you to Maui for your 30th birthday to swim with the turtles, relax, recover and think about nothing." I looked down at the ticket and it said Maui on it.. I was in utter disbelief. Fast forward 7 hours later we immediately started 5 of the best days I have ever had, beginning with a helicopter ride straight after landing on Hawaiian soil. Our adventures continued with scuba diving, road tripping, laying out, fantastic dinners, enjoying nature and unforgettable scenery. Lastly….. I finally got to check off a bucket list item of mine which was swimming with the turtles ? I feel completely rested, healed & rejuvenated. I can't thank my lovely fiancé enough. I wish we didn't have to go back tmrw. This has been the best vacation together yet & I can't wait for more. I love you more & more every day.. I needed this more than you know.. Or I guess you did know ? I love you.
