Julianne Hough is many things. She’s a singer, an actress, a clean-beauty aficionado, a wife and (lest we forget) a dancer. Whether you first became acquainted with the 31-year-old multi-hyphenate via America’s Got Talent or Dancing with the Stars, here are five videos of Julianne Hough dancing that prove she has some incredible moves.
1. When She Got Salty & Did the Cha-Cha with an Olympian (2007)
Remember Olympian Apolo Ohno? Well, his athleticism seemed to pale in comparison to Hough’s Cha-Cha (and spray tan). There’s a reason she went on to win the Mirrorball Trophy with him that season.
2. When She Debuted Her Full Middle Splits on ‘Ellen’ (2015)
Hough and her brother Derek showed The Ellen DeGeneres Show guests their best moves ahead of their Move Beyond Live tour in 2015. We still can’t get over those middle splits. Like, how?!
3. When she went full Sandy (2016)
Hough starred as Sandy in Grease Live! on Fox and got her carnival on with some very Olivia Newton John moves. That hair, though.
4. When She Was Basically Sia with a hint of ‘The Little Mermaid’ (2018)
Hough danced to James Bay’s “Wild Love” in a number choreographed by Kyle Hanagami. The video felt very Sia-inspired thanks to her nude leotard and bare feet, while her temporary red hair called to mind Ariel (after she got legs of her own, of course).
5. When She Paired Her Vocal Skills with her dancing prowess (2019)
ICYMI: Hough has been making major strides as a singer this year. She debuted her new single, “Transform,” on America’s Got Talent and recently released a holiday song. Aside from her catchy pop ballad, we couldn’t help but appreciate her mid-song dance routine.
