Julianne Hough may be making comments that come across as harsh while serving as a guest judge on "Dancing With The Stars," but the former dance pro says it's all in good fun.
Hough made her most recent guest-judging appearance on the April 7 episode of season 18, during week 4 of the competition. She criticized professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy's performance with "switch-up" partner Danica McKellar, saying that he was merely going through the motions and that she wanted the switch to be over so he could return to real partner Meryl Davis.

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder may no longer be a couple, but they still celebrate each other's birthdays.
The two, along with Dobrev's close friend, actress and "Dancing With The Stars" pro Julianne Hough, celebrated Dobrev's 25th birthday following the 2014 People's Choice Awards ceremony. The three were captured in an embrace while holding a cake by "The Vampire Diaries" co-creator Kevin Williamson (above, right).
Derek Hough talked about his sister Julianne's "Orange is the New Black" costume with blackface makeup and said that Julianne is "mortified" by the backlash.
Derek talked to E! News about the controversy backstage at "Dancing With The Stars" on Monday, Oct. 28. He told the outlet, "She's so apologetic. She's so, so sorry and I just hope that we can all forgive her and move on."
Julianne Hough sparked controversy over the weekend after paparazzi photos of the "Dancing With The Stars" alum wearing blackface makeup at a Halloween party were posted online.
The 25-year-old sister of Derek Hough and native of Salt Lake City had shown up dressed up as the black inmate Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren from the hit Netflix women's prison drama "Orange Is The New Black" (see photo on ABC News). She later apologized on Twitter.
"Dancing With The Stars" alum-turned-guest judge Julianne Hough's comments about Mark Ballas' and contestant Christina Milian's performance on Monday did not sit well with the choreographer and the singer, who told OTRC.com that her words "felt personal."
Hough had said she Ballas' choreography of their Foxtrot made it so that it appeared as though the two were "dancing side by side," rather than together. Hough cited her own experience as Ballas' dance partner -- the two have danced on the show and as members of a teenage musical trio, saying: "You have to stand in front to make sure you're seen."
