Paula Abdul Joins So You Think You Can Dance Australia Judges Panel

So You Think You Can Dance Australia is coming back to Channel 10 and look who is joining the judges panel–Paula Abdul!

SHE’S long put away the pompoms as the original LA Laker girl, but Paula Abdul will be part of a new cheer squad charged with uncovering local talent when she plays judge on Channel 10’s new reboot of So You Think You Can Dance Australia. The controversial singer and reality TV personality, who made global headlines for her crazy antics in the early seasons of American Idol, leads a brand new panel of SYTYCD, after Ten cleared the decks of the popular series it shelved four years ago.

“I am thrilled to be a part of this great show and to experience first-hand the skill, passion and athleticism of these dancers. Aussie dancers are without doubt some of the best in the world and it is an honour for me to be a part of finding Australia’s best dancer.”

Paula guest judged a few times on the most recent season of So You Think You Can Dance USA. Maybe Nigel Lythgoe will bring her back in a more permanent capacity for Season 11 next summer…
