Nigel Lythgoe announced Wednesday morning at the “So You Think You Can Dance” live dance billboard reveal in Hollywood that Lady Gaga is slated to appear on Season 8 as a guest judge.
“Yes, I asked her when she performed on the ‘American Idol’ finale if she would come on and she said yes,” Lythgoe, executive producer and head judge told xfinitytv. “She is on tour so they said it would probably be later in the season. She is an amazing dancer and performer.”
Nigel also announced that Broadway and “Glee” star Kristin Chenoweth will also take seat at the judges’ table this season.
Megan Mullally of “Will & Grace,” will appear on the judges’ panel this week.
OMG DEAR GOD NIGEL NOOOOOOO: “I believe Ellen [DeGeneres] is coming back…”
This I can handle: …and Neil Patrick Harris wants to do it,” he added. “We have a lot of people who want to help the kids become unique. The biggest thing is standing out from the crowd. The kids have to find something that makes them unique and these performers know how to do that.”
