Paula Abdul returns to tv on the new dance competition Got To Dance on CBS.  Not only will Abdul be the main judge on the show, according to the CBS press release she is also the Executive Producer, Creative Partner, Mentor and Coach as well as an “advocate for the contestants during the performances and elimination process by providing critical input and guidance and by sharing her experience with the hopeful contestants.”  Sounds like a lot of work is ahead for the former American Idol judge.

The series comes from the UK where it is described as this, “amateurs with raw talent of any age group from across the nation, either performing solo or in a group, can audition any form of dancing. … The most talented and entertaining dancers will be invited to audition for Abdul and her panel of experts, all world-class dancers themselves. The very best will perform LIVE in the Semi-Finals and Finals where they will battle it out for the right to be crowned GOT TO DANCE champion.”  Sounds like something right out of So You Think You Can Dance with the exception of the group dancing which makes me wonder how well the series will actually do.
