Julianne Hough serves as one of the judges in ABC's ballroom dancing competition series Dancing With the Stars." She also recently starred in several feature films, including "Safe Haven" with Josh Duhamel, "Rock of Ages," alongside Diego Boneta, Russell Brand and Tom Cruise, and "Footloose," opposite Kenny Wormald, Dennis Quaid and Andie MacDowell.  

A true triple-threat, singer/actress/dancer Julianne Hough (pronounced "Huff") was already known to millions of fans as the two-time professional

dance champion on ABC's top-rated "Dancing With the Stars" before expanding into the worlds of music and film.

Although she has been winning world dance titles since her early teens, Julianne's ultimate goal has always been a career in country music. Her self-titled debut album, released by Universal Music Group Nashville in 2008, hit the Billboard Country charts at #1 and entered the Billboard 200 at #3, marking the highest debut for a country artist since 2006. Her first two singles from the album, "That Song in My Head" and "My Hallelujah Song," soared up the country charts and she earned her first two 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards for Top New Female Vocalist and Top New Artist. Hitting the road for the first time as a recording artist, Julianne opened for superstar Brad Paisley and later toured with George Strait, playing over 100 shows in 2009. Her second album, "The Julianne Hough Holiday Collection," became an instant holiday classic for her legions of fans, distributed exclusively at Target. Her much-anticipated follow-up album will be released by Mercury Nashville in 2011. Her latest single, "Is That So Wrong?," is taking radio by storm and reflects the edgier, more mature tone of the new CD. Julianne has written multiple tracks for the new album, working with Dann Huff, one the hottest producers in country music today (Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, among others). 

Having become a household name virtually overnight on "Dancing With the Stars," then making a seamless transition to recording artist, Julianne is also well on her way to making her mark in the world of motion pictures, most recently appearing in the star-studded ensemble of Screen Gems' dramatic musical "Burlesque," working alongside Cher, Christina Aguilera, Stanley Tucci, Eric Dane, Kristen Bell and Cam Gigandet. In the film written and directed by Steve Antin, Julianne plays Georgia.. 

Hough grew up with her ten siblings in Utah. A born entertainer, she has always loved singing, dancing and acting and at the age of 10 she left her home and family to move to the other side of the world to live and train with her coaches in London. While living there, she partnered with Mark Ballas (the son of her world renowned coaches Corky and Shirley Ballas). It was with Mark that Hough won all of her titles. She is the youngest (and only) American dancer to have become both International Latin Youth Champion and Junior Blackpool World Latin Champion. She returned to Utah at age 15 and, after graduating high school, moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of a career in entertainment

Quickly earning a solid reputation for her talent, discipline and professionalism, it took less than a month for Julianne to land a job as a dancer on the ABC game show, "Show Me the Money" and shortly thereafter joined the "Dancing With the Stars" tour as a company dancer. When "DWTS" dancer Kym Johnson injured her arm, Hough stepped in as her replacement and Cha Cha cha'ed across America with Season 1 "DWTS" competitor Joey MacIntyre. She joined the cast of the hit series in the show's fourth season, where she was paired with two-time Olympic Gold Medal winner Apolo Anton Ohno. They became the Season 4 champions, and she followed it up with another win in Season 5 with two-time Indianapolis 500 champion Hélio Castroneves, making her the only pro besides Cheryl Burke to win twice. On Season 6, Hough was partnered with comedian Adam Carrolla and only lasted until the fourth week. She rebounded in Season 7 with actor Cody Linley, finishing in 4th place. On the arm of country singer Chuck Wicks in Season 8, she made it as far as the eighth week.

Hough remains the youngest dancer to have won the coveted "Dancing with the Stars" competition twice, and she earned an Emmy nomination in 2008 for Best Choreography for her work on the show. Her skills as a choreographer also led to a collaboration with Gwen Stefani on the singer's "Wind It Up" video.

While devoting most of her time to recording, touring and now filmmaking, Julianne is also active in a range of philanthropic endeavors, charities and humanitarian efforts including the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Clothes Off Our Back, St. Jude's Children's Hospital and serves on the American Red Cross Cabinet.
