He’ll walk them through the dark side of the morning! Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough revealed that she’s pursuing a certain famed DJ to perform at her upcoming wedding to Brooks Laich.

The coveted artist of honor? Kygo, whose recent collaboration with Selena Gomez, “It Ain’t Me,” remains on Billboard’s chart of top 100 hits in the top 10 category. The catchy song itself marked over 100 million streams worldwide in mid-March on Spotify.

“I’m going to pull out all the favors,” Hough told Entertainment Tonight on Friday, March 24. The bride says she even plans to reach out to Gomez herself to check if she’s able to “pull some strings.”

Hough recently celebrated her bachelorette party in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with a star-studded group of girlfriends, including longtime friend Nina Dobrev, as well as celebrity moms Kris Jenner and Cindy Crawford. While Hough hinted in a prior interview that she will marry soon, she elaborated on Friday that she and Laich are still paving out their wedding details—and the guest list especially is being refined.

“I have a really big family. Brooks has sort of a moderate-sized family, so regardless of how small we want it, it’s still going to be big,” she noted. “Fortunately, we still have some time. So we’re good.”

Hough made a mega announcement on Friday by openly discussing her struggle with endometriosis. “That was so hard for me mentally because I have that dancer, athlete mentality of, ‘I cannot quit, I have to keep going,’ ” she told People. “I have a tolerance for pain, I’m a tough cookie, so it was really hard for me to take a day off, but I needed it. I have to be kind to my body.”

Her future husband has been nothing but supportive. “He’s amazing,” Hough continued to the publication. “The first time he found out about it was because I was having an episode, and I couldn’t even speak. As soon as it passed, I was able to tell him what it was. Now he knows when I’m having a little episode, and just rubs my back and is there for me and supports me. There’s comfort in knowing that the people around me get it and understand it, so I don’t feel like I have to push through the pain because I don’t want to look weak.”

She concluded to ET, “We’re just excited to get married and and have all of our closest friends with us on that day. There’s going to be a lot of dancing… There’s [going to be] no speeches. We’re just gonna dance from like, 10 to 10.”
