NEW YORK (AP) — “Dancing With the Stars” says two-time champion Julianne Hough is returning to the ballroom as a judge this season.

She will preside alongside Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

After serving as a company dancer-choreographer, Hough left the show in 2009 to focus on acting and music.

Her films include “Safe Haven,” “Paradise,” “Rock of Ages” and the 2011 remake of “Footloose.” She released a best-selling album in 2008.

“Dancing With the Stars” is hosted by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. Its new season launches Sept. 15 on ABC.
