Adam Shankman Becomes Permanent ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Judge

Sluggish job market? Not for Adam Shankman!

E! Online reports that choreographer and director Shankman, a frequent visitor on So You Think You Can Dance, has officially joined the judges’ panel, alongside Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe.

Guess Shankman will have less time to spread questionable pictures of Miley Cyrus across the Internet now.

So You Think You Can Dance is one of the most important things to happen in the last decade for the art form,” Shankman noted after the decision was announced. “Choreography is how I found my way into this business, and I’m proud to be a part of the show.”

The dance guru’s new coworkers were quick to add that the feeling is mutual. “I am extremely happy that Adam has agreed to be a resident judge,” Lythgoe gushed. “We love bantering and bickering…plus, it must be remembered, it takes a slightly crazy person to work with me and Mary.”

Crazy is a prerequisite, and yet somehow they passed on Paula Abdul? Wait, something’s not right here…
