Dancer, singer, and actress Julianne Hough surprised fans with an incredible announcement on her Instagram page on Monday (Nov. 13). Many of her fans know that she has been noticeably absent from the 25th season of Dancing With The Stars. That’s because she is busy playing iconic fitness figure Betty Weider in the upcoming film Bigger.

Weider was a former model and pin-up girl who became a physical fitness expert. She and her husband, Joe, co-founded Shape magazine, which is still extremely popular to this day. In fact, Hough has even graced the cover four times.


Hough started filming in October and has been extremely busy on set, but she has managed to score some time off to get back to where it all began: the ballroom. In her Instagram post, she revealed that she will be returning as a guest judge for the finals of the ballroom competition!


Get ready,” she writes. “We’re getting the band back together again! I’m coming back as a guest judge NEXT Monday, and I have a very meaningful surprise in store! You won’t want to miss this! Tune in on 11/20 at 8/7c.

We wonder what the “meaningful surprise” is! Guess we’ll have to wait and see. Can’t wait to see her behind the judges’ table again. Maybe she’ll miss it so much, she will decide to return for next season!
