It's official: Julianne Hough joins "Dancing with the Stars" as 4th judge
"My role is to encourage and be supportive, and to also be candid and honest and try not to beat around the bush, to be too politically correct," says Hough, whose duties will include judging her brother, Derek. "I want to give critiques so they can improve. I'm not there to be harsh or cause a controversy. I won't be mean or malicious. That's not who I am. That's not my role at all."

Norman Weiss has been doing TV Tattle since the week "Freaks and Geeks" was canceled. He is a Hollywood outsider who was born and raised in Hollywood. "American Idol" and "Dancing with the Stars" are broadcast 2 blocks from his high school.
