MAIN Arrow to Hollywood Pop Culture Arrow to Country Music Country Music  Arrow to Julianne Hough Julianne Hough

Julianne HoughBlond, blue-eyed and multi-talented, Julianne Hough is on the road to earning the title of America's sweetheart as a professional dancer, country music star, and a return to her roots as a judge on the TV hit "Dancing with the Stars" where she first got her start.

Having already been n the spotlight as a featured dancer (the youngest ever) in the popular dancing show, Hough returns this season to keep a watchful eye on the proceedings as DWTS enters its 19th season on ABC.

Early Career

Born July 20, 1988 in Salt Lake City into a family of professional ballroom dancers, Hough began her dance career as a child partnering with older brother Derek Hough in local competitions. The two siblings later traveled to London to study at the prestigious Italia Conti Performing Arts School where they were trained in all forms of dance including tap and ballet. By the time she was 12, Julianne was already performing in dance competitions in the U.K as well as the United States.

After spending five years in London, she returned home to her native Utah and eventually made her way to Los Angeles to pursue her triple-threat career as a dancer, singer and actress.

Julianne Hough: All Dancing, All Singing

Following stints in commercials and TV drama series, Hough was shining in the national spotlight as a featured dancer in Dancing with the Stars and went on to win back-to-back victories coupled with sports stars Apolo Anton Ano (Season 4) and Helio Castroneves (Season 5).

After her early elimination (partnering with radio star Adam Carolla) during the 2008 season Hough's country music singing career was launched with her self-titled album and debut single "That Song in My Head" in May 2008. By early June, the album quickly jumped to the top of the country music charts.

Hough was chosen to sing the national anthem to open the 2008 edition of Indy 500 and toured with country music superstar Brad Paisley over the summer. Later in the year, after several seasons with Dancing with the Stars, she announced her departure from Dancing with the Stars to pursue a full-time acting and singing career.

In 2014, she returns to the show - now as its newest judge - but plans on continuing to sing and act as she does so.

Offstage, Hough has been romantically linked to fellow professional dancer and "Dance War" winner Zack Wilson. (with whom she reportedly broke off a wedding engagement in 2008), and dated fellow country star Chuck Wicks for a year before their split in November 2009. Hough has also famously dated TV star Ryan Seacrest (2010 - 2013), and is reportedly currently dating NHL professional hockey player Brooks Laich of the Washington Capitals.
