The man who America has had in the back of their minds all week is finally speaking up!
Good! Because we were wondering this too!
Producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe weighed in on why he thought the singer slash dancer finally gave in, saying:
"I don't know why this season we finally talked her into it because we've tried every other season. I guess the amount she hears from fans on Twitter; So You Think You Can Dance fans keep on bombarding her, like, Go on So You Think you Can Dance! So I think they finally moved her."
But what about Paula’s reason? She explained:
"I've never had the experience of [Nigel] sitting next to me, but I got used to it very quickly. We had a good time! Like [Nigel] said, he's been trying for 10 years, and I said, 'Well, for 12 years I've been waiting to punch you in the gut. [laughs] "
Hmm… That’s not much of an explanation, but some is better than none!
Hopefully it doesn’t take another 12 years for her to come on the show again. LOLz!
