Julianne Hough Dazzles At 'DWTS' Premiere

Julianne Hough stole the show at the Season 19 premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday.

Hough glittered as she took her place at the judges' table in a floor-length gown, with her hair in retro curls reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe. The 26-year-old is the fourth judge on the ABC reality competition. As a professionally trained dancer and former "DWTS" champion -- she won the mirror ball trophy in Seasons 4 and 5 -- Hough certainly has the necessary credentials.

“What Julianne brings is she was youth champion at the Blackpool [Dance Festival],” the show's executive producer Rob Wade told TheWrap. “She's a beautiful dancer and an excellent teacher. She has also been a dancer on the show, so she really understands every aspect of this.”
