Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul will be stopping by So You Think You Can Dance, tonight, Tuesday, July 9th to join Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and FOX Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews at the judges’ table.

An expert choreographer and two-time Emmy winner, Abdul previously served as a judge for eight seasons of American Idol as well as the first season of The X-Factor. Lythgoe certainly seems excited to see the famed Abdul lending her expertise to the finalists as a guest judge. On Monday, he tweeted:

Only kidding, it’s not the great singer/composer Paul Anka. It’s the girl I’ve waited ten seasons for @PaulaAbdul is joining us on #SYTYCD.
