Now it’s time for Julianne Hough to say goodbye to everyone in the Dancing With the Stars company.
Today, ABC announced the judging panel for the upcoming season 25 of DWTS, and noticeably missing was fan favorite and former pro turned judge Hough. However, DWTS O.G. judges—Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba—will resume their roles as this season’s overly animated dream crushers.
Just last week, the full season 25 lineup of celebrities and their pro partners was also announced. Barbara Corcoran? Sure. Frankie Muniz? Random. Julianne Hough? Julianne Hough...? We did not see this one coming.
We’ll miss her hilarious ballroom critiques, but Julianne, you do Julianne, and we’ll be here supporting from our couch.
Dancing with the Stars season 25 premieres on September 18 on ABC.
