Gaga To Judge So You Think You Can Dance

It’s official: Fox’s hottest summertime commodity, So You Think You Can Dance, will add some sizzle to its current season — and maybe give its sliding ratings a boost – with a helping of Lady Gaga.

The theatrical performer will serve as a judge on the series sometimes before its finale in August, a Fox rep confirmed for, echoing that which Nigel Lythgoe hinted at during a recent press call.

“What she will do is give great advice on how to handle yourself, how to be creative with what you do, and how to be a fabulous performer,” Lythgoe has said of Gaga’s encore. (She previously performed on SYTYCD during a Season 4 stop-by; watch it below.)

SYTYCD will mark Gaga’s second visit this year to a hit Fox reality competition, seeing as Mother Monster mentored the American Idol kiddies this past May.

Most recently, SYTYCD welcomed a guest judge in the form of Broadway icon Kristin Chenoweth.

    I don’t know why all the TV sites are reporting this NOW. I mean, Nigel announced this two weeks ago. :/

    • Esta says:

      This is the first I have heard of it, and very excited. I hope she performs also. So much about dance is presentation and theatrical, she is the queen now.

    • Matt says:

      I know, seriously – this is ancient news at this point. And it’s not even like it was “insider” news – they announced it live on the air.

    • jeno says:

      It’s probably because they had a huge ratings dip. They’re trying to generate buzz. *rolls eyes*

    It’s a win-win. It’ll be great for the contestants, great for the show, humanizing for Gaga, and personally I can’t wait. Plus if she performs she might bring All-Star Mark – which would be wonderful!!
    Write as many articles as you like – this is one of the most delightful shows on TV and not enough people know about it.

  3. teaj says:

    she’s doesn’t have great dancing skills but none of that matters to be a judge on that show anyways.

    • Esta says:

      ICAM, she can be a bit stiff but she’s been in the business long enough to have eyewitnessed some of the best dancers out there so she knows what good dancing looks like. Plus it’s always fun to see what she wears lol.

  4. Drew says:

    She’d be great at giving the dancers lessons in how to make a fool out of yourself while trying desperately to pretend that you’re probably the most famous person in the world without a shred of self confidence or self respect. I’ve never seen anyone who worked so hard to make believe that people were laughing WITH her, rather than AT her.

    She is a horrible performer, unless you’re counting the sideshow appeal, which just about where she belongs.

    The season sucks so far as it is. This will give everyone a reason to take a week away from the show, not pull people in.

      Here here!. Best comment ever.

    • fci says:

      Drew; Go watch something else. Why do people even bother to blast away at a show on a recap site? Why are they even reading the recap if they hate the show?

      • Drew says:

        I’ve watched the show for years. I have every right to comment on it. This season has been rather boring so far, with only a couple of standout dancers and annoying judges.

        Adding Lady Gaga to the mix simply highlights the weakness of the show this year.

  5. cmp says:

    Not a great dancer although she surrounds herself with them. Great performer overall though and her input, as on AI, will be really interesting and hopefully credible.

  6. Larc says:

    Gaga should definitely be a judge since she knows diddly-squat about dancing from all indications. She’ll fit right in with some other TV judges of talent who are totally unqualified for their positions.

  7. Mindy says:

    This was announced on air weeks ago. I don’t understand why I am seeing it reported everywhere now.

    Anyway, Gaga isn’t a great dancer, so I am not sure she is qualified to be a judge. But, I can hope that she performs and brings Mark with her.

  8. Angela says:

    Oh yes, because Lady CACA knows so much about dancing…..

    She can barely stagger in those shoes and the countless pictures all over the net of her falling flat on her ass show shows she’s just the pinnicle of grace of movement. Yep, great choice as a judge.

    To quote the lyrics of an old Danny Kaye song: Gaga is “the result of the twisted eugenics of a family of inbred schizophrenics, the end of a long, long line of bats”
