Julianne Hough is eyeing a return to the Dancing with the Stars ballroom.
Hough, who was a professional dancer on Dancing on Seasons 4 through 8, is returning to the show as a judge, TMZ reports.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Meryl Davis
Dancing with the Stars champ Meryl Davis knows the importance of chemistry. In fact, she thinks the romantic energy between her and partner Maks Chmerkovskiy was certainly a key to her claiming the Mirrorball trophy.
Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli
Dancing with the Stars kicks off its two-part Season 18 finale Monday night (8/7c, ABC), with two Olympians squaring off against a former child star and a boy bander to see who will take home the Mirrorball trophy.
The winning pair will be chosen on Tuesday's show. Who will it be — Candace and Mark, James and Peta, Amy and Derek, or Meryl and Maks? We've sized up the final four, so check out each team's strengths and weaknesses and vote in our poll for who you want to win.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Meryl Davis; Sharna Burgess, Charlie White
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.
Drew Carey, Witney Carson
Many of the contestants on Dancing with the Stars were apprehensive about switching partners for last week's switch-up, but that wasn't the case for Drew Carey. In fact, the Price Is Right host says he'd like to swap again. (No disrespect to Carey's pro partner Cheryl Burke, of course.)
Peta Murgatroyd and Brant Daugherty
TVGuide.com caught up with Murgatroyd on Tuesday to discuss their shocking dismissal, and get her thoughts on how Cher did as a guest judge.
By all accounts, the weekly rehearsals for contestants on Dancing with the Stars require a tremendous amount of physical strain and mental focus. Unfortunately, Brant Daugherty wasn't feeling up to par in either area before performing last week's quickstep. The Pretty Little Liars star was mugged outside of his apartment immediately following his routine the previous week, and also had to contend with a foot injury ahead of Week 3. Still, that didn't stop him and partner Peta Murgatroyd from finishing in first place for the night, with a score of 27. TVGuide.com spoke with Daugherty about how he dealt with the distractions, and what he and Murgatroyd have in store for viewers this week.
Aly Raisman, Mark Ballas
Forget the Fierce Five. Aly Raisman has made the final five of Dancing with the Stars and is one step closer to the Mirrorball trophy. "It feels awesome. I can't believe how fast the competition has been," she tells TVGuide.com. "Week 1 feels like it was forever ago, but at the same time, the finals are only a week away." The Olympic champ will have two chances to make her case for the finals on Monday with a rumba and a Twitter-voted Afro-jazz. Find out what she and Mark Ballas have planned, why they wanted Afro-jazz and what she thinks of Len Goodman's outburst at Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough last week.
Aly Raisman, Mark Ballas
Len Goodman wants Aly Raisman to stick her butt in on Dancing with the Stars — but that won't happen this week. "It's Latin Night and we have the salsa, so you have to move your butt," she tells TVGuide.com. "Sorry, Len!" But butt-shaking isn't the only thing the Olympic champ is focused on this week. Find out what else she and Mark Ballas have planned.
Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas
Last Monday's Dancing with the Stars was a tough one for Aly Raisman, not just because she flubbed a move in her samba, but because the Needham, Mass., native performed hours after the Boston Marathon bombings. (Her family and friends are OK.) "It was really difficult," she tells TVGuide.com. "I just want to say that I love everyone back home from Boston. You're all in our thoughts and prayers. Mark [Ballas] and I tweeted a picture of us making a heart. We're all thinking about you. I'm so sorry that this happened. My heart goes out to everyone who's affected. Hopefully I can do well for...
