Julianne Hough

Returns to DWTS

As a Judge

Julianne Hough has learned a hard lesson about the movie biz ... it ain't that easy, so she's returning to "Dancing with the Stars" but this time as a judge ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the show tell us ... they've made an offer to Julianne to become the 4th judge ... the other 3 are coming back. We're told the 2 sides are in negotiations and are expected to make the deal.

Julianne left the show years ago to pursue an acting and singing career, but it's been rough going ... particularly "Rock of Ages" and "Footloose."  

We're told her commitment to DWTS is only a couple of hours a week, so she'll still pursue acting.

The only judges I care about are Bruno (because he is funny) and Len (because he is a grouch). Make Carrie Anne an advisor or something and make Julianne and Max new judges. I've always found Carrie Anne soooo boring. JMO

You've got to be kidding me? Chmerkovskiy is qualified and JUDGES competitions. Trained over 400 dancers. Hough simply does NOT have the credentials. Additionally, she's caused controversy on both of her guest appearances. If DWTS is to turn into a trashy reality show, I'm out.

What a joke! Does no one remember her Halloween costume last year? Big mistake, ABC. Big. Big. Mistake. She couldn't make it as an actress so now we have to have her on DWTS. No thanks.

I like her. Acting seems to be a rough profession. Why not stay with what you're good at? Cool job choice!

4 judges are just too many. and last time Julianne judged, no one could see past the hole in the front of her gown.
