Outgoing American Idol judge Paula Abdul has received a concrete job offer from rival show ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’
ABC’s president of entertainment Steve McPherson revealed that he had “reached out” to Abdul after he heard that she had quit AI.
“I would love to [have her]. I was a little stunned by the [Idol] decision. We would love to have her on Dancing either as a participant or a contestant,” he told reporters.
“I definitely have reached out to her. I gave her a call first and foremost to say I was sorry about the situation and to say we’d love to see her on ABC.”
McPherson added: “I think she is a huge talent. There’s a sensitivity and an empathy that balances out Idol, and we’d love to get a piece of that.”
