'So You Think You Can Dance' promotes director Adam Shankman to permanent judge

adamshankman.jpgI always said Adam Shankman was the best choreographer to grace the "So You Think You Can Dance" judging panel... and apparently E.P. Nigel Lythgoe agrees.

"So You Think" will welcome Shankman -- best known as a director of films such as "Hairspray" & "Step Up 3-D" -- as the third permanent judge when the 6th season debuts its Top 20 next month.

I got the chance to chat with Lythgoe about the addition of Shankman this week, a couple days before the news broke...


Check back for more of my one-on-one with Nigel next week.

But in the meantime, tell me what you think of A.S. upping his "So You Think You Can Dance" profile.

Is he the talker you would've added to the panel? Or do you prefer someone else?
