Abdul headed to 'Dancing with the Stars'; celebs to choose dances

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Next Monday --- that would be Oct. 15 --- Paula Abdul will pick up the ballroom scoring paddles when she joins "Dancing with the Stars" for a guest star stint as an official judge. It will be her first time judging ballroom dance on the show, which has made use of guest judges in the past.

Abdul served as a judge on "American Idol" from 2002 to 2009; she was also on the judging panel for the first season of "X Factor" until she exited that series earlier this year.


It was a night of surprise announcements on "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars." First came the news that Paula Abdul would guest star on Oct. 15 as one of the judges for the hit series.

That was followed about a half-hour later by the news that for the first time ever, the celebs next week (also the 15th) will pick the dance styles for each other.

Will they be cruel or kind? Hey, there IS a mirrorball trophy at stake, isn't there?
