Dancing super-siblings Derek and Julianne Hough have added yet another major project to their crazy schedules: Later this year, they'll host their very own holiday special on NBC. Naturally, it'll include tons of excellent dancing. Delightfully, it'll be called "Holidays with the Houghs."


According to the press release, the hourlong Donny-and-Marie–style broadcast will feature Derek and Julianne in "show-stopping musical and dance performances" that put their "friendly sibling rivalry…on full display," which, SOLD. "Holidays with the Houghs" will also include appearances by big-name musical artists and "celebrity friends" of the siblings Hough.

Derek and Julianne are no strangers to TV, of course. They're judges on "World of Dance" and "America's Got Talent" (respectively), they're "Dancing with the Stars" veterans, and Julianne starred in 2016's "Grease: Live!" In other words, they each know how to work the TV camera. But it'll be especially fun to see them work that camera together.
