So You Think You Can Dance is getting some new star power this season!
Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo will join veteran Nigel Lythgoe at the judges' table for season 12, E! News has learned. Cat Deeley will return as host for the new season, which will also feature a new twist in the competition: stage dancers vs. street dancers.
"With the new and exciting format comes a new and exciting panel of judges," executive producer/judge Lythgoe says. "I'm delighted that Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo will be joining me at the judges' table this season on So You Think You Can Dance. 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."
