Paula Abdul wasted no time getting back on TV as a judge, and in other Idol- type show, also an import from the UK.  “Got To Dance”  will run on CBS with Abdul as lead judge, executive producer, creative partner, mentor and coach to the dancers.  Unlike on Idol, it seems that contestants won’t be limited by age, so prepare to see some dancing grannies!  OMG is reporting that she signed the contract on Tuesday, but CBS hadn’t confirmed her joining the show until this morning. 

Abdul may have had some hit songs, but dancing is where she her talents really shine, as she has been a Laker Girl and a choreographer.   On Idol she often seemed a bit repetitive and she became a little bit of a joke, whereas when she is judging and coaching dancers, I think she will sound far more knowledgeable and her comments will probably make more sense and be less likely to be the fodder for SNL skits.

Will this dance show stand out from the others (So You Think You Can Dance, dancing with the stars, America’s Got Talent – not a dance show, but has a lot of dancers)?  The addition of Paula Abdul might be enough to give it a shot.   Good luck, Paula!
