Former American Idol judge Paula Abdul is expected to be announced as a judge on the US series of Got to Dance for CBS.
Abdul will serve as the lead judge, executive producer, creative partner, mentor and coach. The announcement will put to an end speculation about Abdul’s next television project after leaving Idol.
In January, ABC made Abdul an offer to appear on Dancing With the Stars, and FOX has reportedly eyed her for The X Factor alongside Simon Cowell which debuts in 2011.
Cowell makes his final Idol appearance this Thursday. Abdul is said to be making an appearance for the occasion.
Dance is a Shine Group format, created by Princess Productions and Shine TV and produced by Reveille.
The UK original series is currently airing in Australia on FOX8.
