She's gonna swing from the judge's chair!

After we found out So You Think You Can Dance was coming back with a kids-only season last month, we weren't sure how we felt about the show only featuring dancers between the ages of 8-13.

But it looks like the Next Generation theme will also add some youth to the judging panel, as it was announced that Maddie Ziegler will be a judge on the upcoming season of Fox's dance competition!

The 13-year-old will sit alongside Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul, and Jason Derulo in hopes of finding the next… well, Maddie Ziegler! LOLz!

We think this adds a whole new dynamic to the show, as we're sure the Dance Moms star will be able to relate to the young contestants a lot more than her fellow judges.

And we have a feeling Madz will have no problem being a bit harsher when it comes to judging the performances — we'd LOVE to see her become the Simon Cowell of the panel!

Will you be watching Maddie judge when SYTYCD: Next Generation debuts on May 30?
