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.

"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."
