Maddie Ziegler, the 13-year-old former "Dance Moms" star, is set to become the youngest judge on "So You Think You Can Dance."
The dancer made a name for herself as the standout young performer in Abby Lee Miller's dance company on Lifetime's "Dance Moms."
The addition of Ziegler to the "SYTYCD" judging team makes sense. The upcoming 13th season is being called "The Next Generation" and will feature contestants ranging from 8 to 13 years old.
Fox said in a statement that Ziegler will "lend her expertise as a young dancer to critique and praise the contestants."
She should be good at that. After all, she learned how to critique from the best. We just hope she's a little nicer than Abby. "SYTYCD" returns May 30.
