CBS has announced the host and judges for Paula Abdul‘s new talent competition series, “Live to Dance.”
The network said Wednesday that choreographer Travis Payne, who worked on Michael Jackson‘s “This Is It,” and former Pussycat Dolls singer-dancer Kimberly Wyatt will join Abdul as the show’s trio of experts.
The host of “Live to Dance” will be Andrew Gunsberg. He previously served as co-host of “Australian Idol” and host of the syndicated countdown show, “Take 40 Australia.”
Abdul is an executive producer of “Live to Dance.” She served as a judge on “American Idol” until leaving the Fox talent show last year.
“Live to Dance” will premiere on CBS in January.
