The FOX reality dancing show So You Think You Can Dance has reinvented itself this season by having contestants between the ages of 8 and 13 compete. With having such young talent on the show, the program decided to bring a judge who can relate with them – 13 year old Maddie Ziegler!
Ziegler is already an accomplished dancer having won state and national competition which received national exposure. She now takes her experience as a dancer and joins fellow judges Paula Abdul, Jason Derulo and Nigel Lythgoe to judge her contemporaries. One would think it would be very tough for Ziegler to judge dancers her age but not for Ziegler who says it won’t be tough to give her tough love critiques. For Zielger, the bottom line is for contestants to grow as dancers.
So You Think You Can Dance airs Monday nights on FOX.
