Teen dancer Maddie Ziegler is set to join So You Think You Can Dance – The Next Generation as a judge.
The new season of the popular dance competition features dancers between the ages of 8-13 who will be paired with SYTYCD All-Stars. It will premiere on May 30. Ziegler will be joining Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo.
Maddie Ziegler, who has been swamped with professional dance work for years, will without a doubt have a lot of advice for the young dancers auditioning for the show. Ziegler is mostly known for her appearances in Sia’s music videos and her role on the reality show Dance Moms. She has also had appearances on Dancing With The Stars, Pretty Little Liars and Austin & Ally. The 13-year-old recently won the Seriously Popular Award at People’s Choice Awards.
Because of her major success, the teenager will be leaving the controversial show later this year. She and her little sister Mackenzie Ziegler, who is a singer, dancer and actress, filmed their last episode of the show on Saturday. According to their mom, Melissa Gisoni, they will both be focusing on their careers.
