“I’m not [going back] next season," said Hough. "But I love that show.” It sounds like it's been a rough time on the dance floor: "I’m completely battered and bruised. It looks like I’ve got rug burn all over my body!”

It's not entirely unsuprising that Hough would choose now to step away from the show that brought her into the limelight. Her self-titled debut album dropped in May of last year, quickly shooting to the top of the charts and nabbing her Academy of Country Music's honors for Top New Female Vocalist and Top New Artist. She also recently broke up with her dancing partner and boyfriend Chuck Wicks, though she says that they're still close. "He's great," she told Seacrest. "He's amazing."

Up next for Hough? She's set to star in the upcoming remake of Footloose, dancing her way onto the silver screen opposite Chace Crawford. Filming is set to begin March of 2010.
