By Gina DiFalco,

Julianne Hough has confirmed that she will be returning to ABC’s Dancing with the Stars as the fourth judge alongside Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli.

After rumors she was in negotiations with the network, she took to Twitter to tease the confirmation, which she will make on Good Morning America on Thursday.

“I'm so excited to be back with my Dancing with the Stars family again on a regular basis. I've always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I'm acting, dancing or singing, and I'm thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits,” she said in a statement, Us Weekly reports.

She continued that she just wrapped her Move Live on Tour with her brother, Derek Hough, who has been confirmed to be returning to Season 19 as a professional dancer again, which “reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career.”

Meanwhile, the show’s executive producer Rob Wade said in a statement they were “delighted” to welcome Hough back to the show as a judge, calling her the “ideal” choice.
