Paula Abdul is making her return to reality television as a full time judge on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’.

As we all know, Abdul is no stranger to judging TV competitions. The singer/dancer spent eight seasons on the panel of ‘American Idol’ and one season on ‘The X Factor’. The upcoming season of ‘SYTYCD’ is featuring stage dancers vs. street dancers. This judging gig might turn out to be Abdul’s most lucrative as her career began in choreography before she pursued singing.

Jason Derulo will be joining Abdul as a full-time judge, along with returning judge Nigel Lythgoe. Both Derulo and Abdul have guest-judged in prior seasons.

“With the new and exciting format comes a new and exciting panel of judges,” Lythgoe said.

“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.”

The first round of auditions for Season 12 begin in New York City this upcoming weekend.

‘So You Think You Can Dance’ returns to Fox this summer.
