Vanessa Hudgens Lands Role As SYTYCD's New Judge

Vanessa Hudgens has signed on as a judge for the upcoming 14th season of FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance. 

“I am so excited for Vanessa to join Mary [Murphy] and me on the judging panel for the 14th season of So You Think You Can Dance. There was instant chemistry in the audition rounds, and I know the SYTYCD fans will love her as much as we do,” says Nigel Lythgoe, who serves as both a judge and executive producer. 

“Vanessa is an accomplished artist and brings her own brand of enthusiasm and energy to our panel.” 

Paula Abdul and Jason DeRulo served as judges with Lythgoe last season, but departed ahead of the upcoming season. 

According to Variety, Hudgens will make her debut on the show’s June 12 season premiere. Cat Deeley will also return as host.
