Paula Abdul returns to judging on CBS' 'Got to Dance'

Paula_abdul Paula Abdul fans, rejoice! Now your Abdul fix won’t be limited to viewing her oh-so-insightful Twitter feed. (For example, who knew the natural sugar in an apple is stronger than the caffeine in a cup of coffee? Thanks, Paula!)

CBS has confirmed -- as did Abdul via Twitter, of course -- that the former object of Simon Cowell’s ridicule has been named an executive producer, creative partner and lead judge for the network’s new reality dance competition, “Got to Dance.” The new show is based on the British hit that began airing earlier this year. Think “American Idol” meets “So You Think You Can Dance.”

Here's hoping her dancing critiques will be more coherent than the ones she offered on "American Idol."

There's still no word when the show will air, so until then, it’s back to the Twitter feed.
