Actress Julianne Hough set to return to Dancing with the Stars

A former Dancing with the Stars contestant is returning to the show as a star.

Julianne Hough, who competed on DWTS more than two years ago, is set to perform two dance numbers on the show on Tuesday’s show.

Hough has a leading roll in the remake of the iconic dance movie Footloose. One of the dance numbers she’ll perform Tuesday is with her Footloose co-star Kenny Wormald.

"I definitely got a little emotional," she says about returning to the DWTS studio, according to People magazine.

She says she’s never felt this nervous about performing because she’s a little “rusty,” she tells People.
