Maddie Ziegler Joins Judging Panel For ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Season 13
This Dance Moms kid is making it big.
Maddie Ziegler, who is basically Sia Furler’s music video muse these days, has been added to the judging panel for So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation.
The 13-year-old will join returning judges Nigel Lythgoe (who has been with the show since the start and is also a co-creator) as well as former American Idol staple Paula Abdul and singer Jason Derulo (who joined the panel last year), according to TVLine.
Season 13 of the Fox dancing reality competition series will feature contestants between the ages of eight and 13 who are well-versed in a variety of dance styles.
Auditions for the upcoming season are happening right now, with cities like Chicago and New York City being scouted for talented kids. Those who advanced past the first stage will enter into “The Academy” before the Top 10 is decided on by the judges.
With Maddie’s help, we have faith SYTYCD will find the youngest America’s Favorite Dancer yet.
So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation premieres Monday, May 30, at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
