Nigel Lythgoe Remembers Farting in Front of the Royal Family (VIDEO)

These days, Nigel Lythgoe is a big time producer and a judge on 'So You Think You Can Dance.' As he explained Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), he hasn't always been so smooth. Lythgoe, who started his career as a dancer, talked about an early show gone wrong at the Royal Variety Performance, which is held annually in the U.K.

Eartha Kitt was singing 'Aquarius' at this particular performance, backed by a boy dancer. "I had to go behind the pair of them, put my arms around them, and using my thighs, lift them both up in the air," Lythgoe explained. "Well, every bit of air left my body."

That was Lythgoe's attempt to word things delicately. Holly Robinson Peete would have none of it, and asked, "Did you poot?" Lythgoe was taken aback, and assured them he did not poo. It was then explained to him she said "poot," with a "t," which means fart. "Yes, thank you very much for helping me explain, translating," said Lythgoe. "I've heard the word in America is 'fart.'" And now he knows we have a multitude of words to explain passing gas in front of the Royal Family.
