Nygel Lythgoe has finally explained why Paula Abdul never made an appearance on ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ After her ‘American Idol’ negotiations fell through, Nigel tried to get her for SYTYCD. Regarding his efforts Nigel said, “I spent an entire season wooing her and if she was ever going to do it, she would have. The timing was perfect for her. I was rather shocked she didn’t pick up and join us at any point. I mean, Katie Holmes was there, Jennifer Lopez was there. I know we don’t have Idol money and so does Paula, but at the end of the day I do plenty of things for no money because I want to support dance. And as an dancer/performer/choreographer, I would have thought she’d like to support us.” It sounds like Abdul needs to sack her new manager. She hired David Sonenberg as a manager early last year right around the time she made all of these erratic career choices. First she loses her ‘American Idol’ gig, then she turns down SYTYCD, and her recent ‘Star Search‘ negotiations fell through. It’s time to get a new team Paula.
