Paula Abdul Looking for 'Unique' Dancers for New Show

Updated

Paula Abdul has a tip for anyone trying out for her new show: Don’t bore her.

“We want people that are unique and passionate about dancing and ones that will show me something I haven’t seen before,” Abdul told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday of her new competition show on CBS, Live to Dance.

The former American Idol judge says viewers will be treated to a no-holds-barred approach to dance.

“We’re looking for all forms of dance and you can be any age, any style of dance, [and] any number of people or individuals can get on stage,” she says. Abdul also recommends that dancers “fuse styles together,” suggesting a tap-dancer could perform with a hip-hop group in the same number.

Despite her excitement for the new project, Abdul confesses to Seacrest that she still pines for the days she worked with him and Simon Cowell on Idol, telling the radio host, “I miss you guys so much.”

Live to Dance will premiere on CBS in January.

Got rhythm? The next round of auditions will be Thursday at 8 a.m. at CenterStaging in Burbank, Calif.
