Paula Abdul will be making her return to reality TV competitions by appearing as a guest judge on “Dancing with the Stars” next Monday, she tweeted Monday night.
“DWTS” is currently beginning its “All-Star” season and after taking a break for a week, there will be a double elimination on the week that the former “American Idol” and “X Factor” judge will be appearing.
Abdul tweeted on Monday night, “Hey everyone – I’m so excited to be a guest judge on #DWTS next Monday 10/15! Can’t wait to get in that ballroom!! xoP”
The post instantly excited Twitter, making Abduk's name a trending topic within minutes.
The “DWTS” official Twitter handle first wrote “Are you as excited as we are to see @PaulaAbdul be a guest judge?! #DWTS #AllStars” and then retweeted the American pop star’s post.
“DWTS: All-Star” season has been extra competitive, with Joey Fatone from the 2000s boy band *Nsync being the second celebrity to be sent home.
The first to pack her bags was actress Pamela Anderson, whose low scores didn’t get her enough fan votes to bring her back for another week.
The actress is reportedly going to be appearing on Broadway, and she promised that if fans sent her through to the next round they would be in for a real treat with her next dance. But anyone who is interested in seeing more of Anderson will just have to check out the Broadway show she was plugging.
Joey Fatone didn’t have the lowest judges scores in the second week, in fact, he and his professional dance partner Kym Johnson were in the middle of the leader board. But it didn’t matter, “General Hospital” star Kelly Monaco and Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol had more fan votes to bring them to the next round of competition.
Abdul might be best known for her singing career, but she’s also a phenomenal dancer. Between her elevated dance technique and judging experience from “American Idol” and “The X Factor,” she’s sure to feel right at home on the “Dancing With The Stars: All-Star” judging panel.
