When Abdul announced in August 2009 that she was leaving Idol, reports soon surfaced that Abdul was speaking with Lythgoe, then also an executive producer on Idol, about joining the dance competition series. Instead, Abdul created her own dance show, Live to Dance, which aired on CBS in 2011. She most recently served as a guest judge on the All-Stars edition of Dancing with the Stars.
So You Think You Can Dance airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Fox. Are you excited to see Abdul on the show?
