<p><span></span><em>So You Think You Can Dance</em> judge <strong>Nigel Lythgoe</strong> tells <em>Life & Style</em> that he still wants the former <em>American Idol</em> judge to join the <em>SYTYCD</em> team. </p>
"I love Paula. I can't think of anybody better for So You Think You Can Dance with her experience as a dancer, choreographer and judge, and there is an empty seat waiting for her. I'd be very happy to have her any time she wants," says Nigel.
But there may not be room for Paula to join the panel permanently this season. Film director and choreographer Adam Shankman was recently named the new judge of So You Think You Can Dance. Adam has appeared several times as a guest judge in the past and is set to start on the show Oct. 27.
Nigel tells Life & Style that he hasn't heard back from Paula but hopes she's considering being at least a guest judge. "I think she's probably taking stock of what she's going to do. She's certainly doing very well with Divas at the moment," he said of the star's turn hosting and performing at VH1's Divas Live concert.
