But it turns out we thought wrong!
Julianne will be returning on tonight's episode of DWTS, but she wont be brining her dancing shoes with her.
Instead, she will be sitting at the judges table as she fills in for Len Goodman for the week!
Unfortunately, it will only be a temporary move as he flies across the pond to shoot Strictly Come Dancing, but we're still definitely excited to see her back where she belongs!
Besides, maybe if it goes well she'll go from a guest judge to a more permanent judge! Hey, we can dream, can't we??
