'So You Think You Can Dance': Zooey Deschanel signs on as first Season 9 celebrity judge
FOX confirmed the news to Zap2it on Thursday (June 21).
Deschanel is a natural go-to girl since she's the star of one of of FOX's latest hits. She's also an accomplished singer who will be making her Broadway debut as Loretta Lynn in a stage adaptation of "Coal Miner's Daughter."
Zooey will join regular judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy behind the judges' table for a particularly competitive Green Mile. This will be her first stint as a judge for the show.
Hopefully, she'll get some pointers from her predecessors, including "Modern Family's" Jesse Tyler Ferguson and "Up All Night's" Christina Applegate.
