DWTS: Derek Hough Returning as a Judge for Season 29

Derek Hough is returning to Dancing With the Stars as a judge!

The former pro revealed the news on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Sept. 8. 

Derek joked that he’s returning to the show because “…I just missed the rhinestones. I just, I missed the sparkles. I love the show so much—always have, and always will. The joy it brings, the pure entertainment. Just what it represents. I think it’s much needed right now.”

Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli will return for season 29 as judges while Len Goodman is sitting the season out due to pandemic-related travel issues.
