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!
