Julianne Hough not coming back for Season 9 of 'Dancing with the Stars'

Posted on

Two-time Dancing with the Stars winner Julianne Hough says she won’t return for the ninth season of the show, reports Access Hollywood. The dancer revealed her decision after being eliminated from the competition on Tuesday along with her partner (and real-life boyfriend), singer Chuck Wicks. Hough made a similar claim after season seven of the show but changed her mind when asked to dance with Wicks. Hough also has a career as a country singer; her self-titled debut album reached the top of Billboard’s country album chart last year. Hough is still under contract to appear in future seasons of the show.
