Paula Abdul is officially returning to FOX — but not on American Idol.
She, along with Jason Derulo, have been added to the judges table for Season 12 So You Think You Can Dance. Their addition comes with the departure of judge Mary Murphy, who’s been with the show from the very beginning.
In addition to the new judges, the show will feature a new twist this season — stage dancers vs. street dancers.
“With the new and exciting format comes a new and exciting panel of judges,” said Lythgoe. “Paula is an incredible artist, and she brings the perfect combination of expertise and heart to the panel. Jason’s insight, humor and creativity will add a new perspective to the panel that we haven’t had before.”
