'So You Think You Can Dance' Nabs Lady Gaga as Guest Judge

Lady GagaLady Gaga has already dished out the advice as a guest mentor on the 'American Idol' this year, and now we hear that she'll be bringing her brand of theatricality to 'So You Think You Can Dance' later on this summer.

A Fox source told 'Entertainment Weekly' that Lady Gaga will be a guest judge on 'SYTYCD' sometime before the talent show's Season 8 Finale in August.

Judge Nigel Lythgoe hinted at a Gaga appearance during a recent interview with Yahoo. He said she'll "give great advice on how to handle yourself, how to be creatve with what you do, and how to be a fabulous performer. She has actually done what I want these [contestants] to do, which is get an audience behind them."

Lady Gaga's got a long history with 'SYTYCD' and choreographer Laurie-Ann Gibson. She previously visited 'SYTYCD' back in Season 4 when she stopped by to perform -- appropriately enough -- 'Just Dance,' and her new 'Edge of Glory' video recently debuted on the show.

Lythgoe's presumably hoping that Gaga will give the flagging show a ratings boost. Previously a ratings juggernaut, Season 8 debuted to a strong start with its most-watched premiere in four years. However, since then audience numbers have dropped sharply, with last Thursday's episode hitting an all-time summer low -- 5 million viewers and a 1.6 rating, down 20 percent from the week before.

'So You Think You Can Dance' airs Thursdays, 8PM ET on Fox.
