And don't even get her started on the time the rest of the Backstreet Boys showed up in the ballroom to support their youngest member. Julianne admitted she asked Brian Littrell for a hug. "So he came over and then everybody came over, so I got a massive Backstreet Boys sandwich."

Despite her admitted inner fangirl, Julianne insists nothing about her BSB love has or will bias her when it comes to scoring Nick fairley in her role as judge.

"There's no way I could be biased," she stressed, adding she always makes sure to focus "on the celebrities' dancing and how they're improving each week."

Of course, Julianne has plenty of experience not letting her personal feelings get in the way of her judging. After all, she scores her own brother, Derek Hough, every week!
