Meet the 'So You Think You Can Dance' season 12 judges

Posted on

Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo are getting plenty comfortable in their judges’ chairs for season 12 of So You Think You Can Dance, judging by EW‘s exclusive “Meet The Judges” clip.

In the clip, returning judge Nigel Lythgoe says the show will have the same judges view everybody this year. Those judges happen to be music legend and judging queen Paula Abdul and the young but decorated pop singer Jason Derulo. 

“He was a stage school kid. He was an arts kid. He did tap. He did ballet. He did jazz before he started to ‘Talk Dirty’ and ‘Wiggle,'” Lythgoe said of Derulo.

Season 12 of So You Think You Can Dance premieres Monday, June 1, at 8 p.m. ET.
