Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.

American Idol is coming to an end, and everyone is weighing in!
Former exec producer Nigel Lythgoe believes the time was right to pull the plug. He said:
"I'm grateful they decided to pull it. I'm likening it to a heavyweight boxer. You have to know when to quit. You don't want all these young kids coming along and knocking you out and taking all the credit. When you have been such a heavy puncher."
Nigel left the show to create So You Think You Can Dance, which this season adds former Idol judge Paula Abdul to its ranks!
So what does Paula think about the end of an era? She said:
We had a great time at STAR Magazine's Hollywood Rocks event last night — and so did the stars themselves!
The Want To Want Me singer shared his thoughts on fellow judges Paula Abdul and Nigel Lythgoe — and hinted that a few female dancers auditioning for the show had caught his eye!
And the 25-year-old also teased us about his upcoming album Everything Is 4, right before taking the stage to perform music from it!
Ch-ch-check out the entire interview in the video (above)! BTW, Everything Is 4 comes out June 2 and can be preordered HERE!
We can barely keep up with Sheryl Murakami!
We caught up with one of our favorite celebrity choreographers at EDGE Performing Arts Center in Hollywood, and we were completely blown away by Sheryl and her dancers' rendition of Paula Abdul's Cold Hearted!
Sheryl's already pretty iconic in the dance world — she's responsible for the amazing choreography for Beyoncé's Run The World (Girls), along with SO much more!
If you like what you see above, then make sure to check out the rest of her work at www.sherylmurakami.com.
Ch-ch-check out Sheryl's new spin on the '80s classic (above)!!!
Can we just talk about the SLAYAGE in this trio!
The new So You Think You Can Dance host showed off her trim figure in a body-hugging ensem, featuring a ruffled shoulder. And can we chat about her flowing chestnut locks?! Perfection.
New mommy CiCi also stunned, wearing a white gown with triangle cutouts by her hips and sides. Her enviable curves are less than one year postpartum, which is AH-Mazing!
And Rita's long sleeved frock was dangerously sexy. She completed her look with sleek tresses and a fiery red lip.
These ladies dared to wear winter white, and hit it out of the park!

So You Think You Can Dance is gearing up for its twelfth season and the FOX reality show is already making a splash with these latest announcements!
Here's what Niger Lythgoe said:
"With the new and exciting format comes a new and exciting panel of judges. Paula is an incredible artist and she brings the perfect combination of expertise and heart to the panel. Jason's insight, humor and creativity will add a new perspective to the panel that we haven't had before."
The news comes after the recent news that judge Mary Murphy would be leaving the show. We guess the producers didn't want to wait when it came to her replacements!
Here's what Paula's rep said in a press release:
Oh, we'd tap that!
Ashley Stroud and tapper Alex MacDonald totally gave us the ultimate throwback!
In the spirit of the classic choreography of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Ashley crooned to Paula Abdul's Straight Up while dancing with Alex.
Not only was this a great cover, the dancing is out of this world!
Ch-ch-check out all the tapsy foot action (below)!!!
Hilary Swank is a real hero to rescue dogs everywhere.
This Thanksgiving night, Hilary is going to host a star-studded special and it's all about doggies!
It's called The Great American Dog-a-Thon and the whole event is about raising awareness for homeless dogs and even giving viewers a chance to adopt animals.
The Fox special will have musical guests and awards and some seriously famous faces!
