While Julianne Hough had a chance to critique her brother Derek Hough this week on Dancing With the Stars 2013, the 28-year-old contestant was able to give his sister some feedback of his own after the show.

When asked his opinion on Julianne’s judging style, Derek revealed that he was quite the fan and it “wasn’t weird at all” to see his sis at the judge’s table.

“It was great,” Derek told E! News. “She did a really great job and I was really proud of her.”

“Julianne and I are so honest with each other I understand what she meant tonight,” he continued. “She said she kind of wanted there to be something she could say [to critique the performance] so that she wouldn’t seem biased. But I know that if she wanted to she would have taken much pleasure in doing that.”

We’re not so sure about that last part. Julianne gushed over Derek’s classic Tango with partner Amber Riley, awarding the duo a 9.

“I was actually hoping that something was going to go terribly wrong so I could give you a horrible score and not get in trouble for liking your performance,” Julianne joked at the judge’s table.

High praise on Dancing With the Stars and introducing him to her bestie Nina Dobrev? Sounds like Derek owes Julianne his eternal gratitude!
