Don’t Miss Rising Star, Julianne Hough at Dream Gala 2011
A true triple-threat, singer/actress/dancer Julianne Hough was already known to millions of fans as the two-time professional dance champion on ABC-TV’s top-rated “Dancing with the Stars” before expanding into the worlds of music and film.
Julianne joined the cast of “Dancing with the Stars” in the show’s fourth season, where she was paired with two-time Olympic Gold Medal winner Apolo Anton Ohno. The couple dazzled the audiences and won the competition. She returned to the hit show for seasons 5-8, pairing with Indy race champion Helio Castroneves, comedian Adam Carolla, actor Cody Linley and country singer Chuck Wicks. Hough remains the youngest dancer to have won the coveted “Dancing with the Stars” competition twice, with partners Ohno and Castroneves, and earned herself an Emmy nomination in 2008 for Best Choreography for her work on the show.
Although she has been winning world dance titles since her early teens, Julianne’s ultimate goal has always been a career in country music. Her self-titled debut album, released by Universal Music Group Nashville in 2008, hit the Billboard Country charts at #1 and entered the Billboard 200 at #3, marking the highest debut for a country artist since 2006. Her first two singles from the album, “That Song in My Head” and “My Hallelujah Song,” soared up the country charts earning her first two 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards for Top New Female Vocalist and Top New Artist. Watch the videos.
Having become a household name virtually overnight on Dancing With the Stars, then making a seamless transition to recording artist, Julianne is also well on her way to making her mark in the world of motion pictures. She was cast in the star-studded ensemble of Screen Gems’ dramatic musical Burlesque, working alongside Cher, Christina Aguilera, Stanley Tucci, Eric Dane and Kristen Bell. Julianne also recently finished filming the Footloose remake, where she plays the female lead, Ariel Moore.
Julianne has also been making headlines for her romance with TV Host and Producer Ryan Seacrest. Check out Access Hollywood to get the full scoop.
