Paula Abdul to Judge on New Dance Show

Apparently we all miss Paula Abdul’s sweetness too much and now she’s got a new judging gig. CBS will have a show called Got to Dance,’ which is based on the British show of the same name. Acceptable dance styles range from “ballroom to break dance, bhangra to ballet, and tap to tango.” In other words, probably anything goes. Basically, people dance in front of judges and have their hearts broken. Well, probably most of them. I mean, it’s not like Simon Cowell will be judging, and Paula’s so positive and sweet.

Hmm. Sounds a lot like Britain Got’s Talent, a show that Simon Cowell is actually a judge on, and which mixes different types of performances, not just music like American Idol. Except Got to Dance is only about dance. But seriously, aren’t there enough reality dance shows on TV without one more popping up? Whatever happened to comedy? It’s much much better as a stress reliever than watching amateurs dance. Has this been done before? Having the sweet Paula Abdul on as a judge isn’t going to make it any more interesting. But we’ll all watch anyway because we’re addicted to the tube, and need to kick back after a long day.
