Julianne Hough is a true television queen. She shot to superstardom as a professional ballroom dancer on the popular competition series, Dancing with the Stars, and later served as a judge for three seasons of the show. She claimed further television fame earlier this year when she starred as Sandy in FOX's televised musical special Grease Live!
For this season of Dancing with the Stars, Hough decided to take a break in order to pursue other projects. She already signed on to participate in an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and recently revealed her role on a major televised event.
On Wednesday (June 1), Hough announced that she will be serving as the co-host and creative producer for the 2016 Miss USA competition. Hough will share the stage with actor and television personality Terrance J when the competition airs on FOX on Sunday (June 5).
As creative producer, Hough plans to use her production company Canary House Productions to provide viewers with a more complete picture of each woman who participates in the competition. The Miss Universe Organization President Paula M. Shugart told Broadway World they are delighted to have Hough join them for the show.
"Julianne is an outstanding woman who embodies all that Miss USA celebrates: strong, successful, confident, and generous," she said. "We are thrilled that she has joined us to help shape our evolution both on-air and behind-the-scenes."
Hough is equally thrilled about her role on the show, saying she has always had an admiration for what The Miss Universe Organization does to celebrate all a of aspects of what makes a woman beautiful.
"I feel fortunate to be a part of encouraging and uplifting them to make a positive difference in the world," she said. "I'm also excited to contribute what I've learned in over a decade in front of the camera and behind the scenes as a performer and choreographer on live television to the Miss USA broadcast."
Hough, who also found her way into the country music community with the release of her debut album in 2008, probably won't show off her vocal talent during the broadcast, but fellow country star Chris Young is scheduled to perform.
We'd like to congratulate Hough on her latest television gig! As a woman of many talents, we think it's the perfect role for her.
