'American Idol' judge Abdul puts on dancing shoes for Fox

MUMBAI: Earlier this month Fox had announced that fresh from the success of American Idol it would kick off a dance based reality show So You Think You Can Dance from today 20 July.

On the show America's top choreographers will put dancers through their paces. Now the broadcaster has announced that one of the judges of American Idol Paula Abdul will have a special role on the new show.

Abdul will travel across the US and teach average Americans a thing or two about dancing. Whether in factories, office buildings or shopping malls, Abdul will use her unique skills of dance and motivation to teach large groups of real people how to find their groove thing and really shake it. These video vignettes will celebrate America's love of dance and will air during the performance episodes of the show.

Abdul is one of the most recognized choreographers in film, television, video, stage and live tours. Her work in choreography includes Emmy-winning contributions to The Tracey Ullman Show, her own performance on The American Music Awards and her choreography for the Academy Awards, for which she earned an Emmy nomination.

Other triumphs include her award-winning work with Janet Jackson, which garnered two MTV Video Awards; and working with such musical legends as Aretha Franklin, George Michael, Luther Vandross, INXS, Heart and Prince. Abdul's favourite memory is dancing alongside her idol, Gene Kelly, in the Diet Coke commercial that was recently inducted into the Coca-Cola Hall of Fame Museum as one of that company's top commercial campaigns.
