Dancing with the Stars’ Julianne Hough: “I Might Be Even Harder on Derek”

Siblings Julianne and Derek Hough are reuniting once again on Dancing with the Stars — only this time they won't be competing against each other.

Julianne Hough joins Season 19 as a full-time judge — the first time a former pro will have a permanent spot at the judges' table. Meanwhile, five-time champion Derek is partnered with YouTube celebrity Bethany Mota.

DWTS: Charlie White and Meryl Davis Say They're "In It Together"

Olympic ice dancing gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis found themselves in a strange position when they signed on for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars: rather than being partners, as they have been on the ice for 17 years, they'd actually be competing against each other. But they don't really see it that way.

"I guess technically speaking, we are competing against each other, but it couldn't feel further from that," Davis tells TVGuide.com. "We really feel like we're in it together."

Check out our full Q&A with White and Davis to get their thoughts on whether they have an unfair advantage in the competition, as well as White's reaction to Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba saying his and Peta Murgatroyd's dance last week wasn't really a rumba.
