Paula Abdul Signs Reality Deal for CBS’s ‘Got to Dance’
Was I too quick to judge Abdul’s new management team? Vulture confirms that Paula Abdul signed a deal to be a lead judge and executive producer on CBS’s new dancing show, ‘Got to Dance,’ which is said to be a hybrid of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and ‘America’s Got Talent.’ Abdul has turned down many opportunities since leaving ‘American Idol,’ and it now appears that she was just waiting for the best deal. Being that she is both a judge and an executive producer, that means she makes double the dough. Good for her! I am sad that she likely won’t be joining Simon Cowell on ‘X-Factor, but least she’ll be returning to her dancing roots. She’s sure come a long way since choreographing for Janet Jackson.
