Make way for Maddie.

When the top 10 So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation finalists take the stage for their first live show, they’ll find a new face at the judges’ table. Dance Moms‘ Maddie Ziegler, who got to know this season’s contestants as a mentor at the Academy, officially takes her seat beside fellow judges Paula Abdul, Jason Derulo, and Nigel Lythgoe on Monday. In this exclusive preview, host Cat Deeley introduces Ziegler with a list of her credentials — yes, including those Sia videos.

Check out the video above for a first look at Ziegler in her new role. So You Think You Can Dance airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
