It’s no secret that Vanessa Hudgens is a dancing queen and now she’s hoping to share her tips and tricks with fellow dance enthusiasts as she joins the judging panel of So You Think You Can Dance.
The High School Musical actress shall be seated alongside the series’ creator Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, who returns as a panelist after leaving after season eleven, for the fourteenth season of Fox’s hit TV show.

Nigel Lythgoe said in a statement: “I am so excited for Vanessa to join Mary and me on the judging panel….There was instant chemistry in the audition rounds, and I know the SYTYCD fans will love her as much as we do.”
He also said, “Vanessa is an accomplished artist and brings her own brand of enthusiasm and energy to our panel.”
We have no doubt that Vanessa’s dance experience is going to come in handy during this role, what with the endless amount of choreography she did during her HSM days and she’ll also be helped by the dance skills she showcased when she played Rizzo in Grease Live early last year. So, we think it’s safe to say she knows what she’s talking about!
Season fourteen of the show will feature dancers aged 18-30 along with all-star partnerships.
The new season of SYTYCD kicks off on 12th June so be sure to tune in to watch Vanessa make her judging debut! Let us know if you’re as excited about this news as we are by tweeting us @CelebMix.
