Justin Bieber will take a little time out from his legal woes to appear on “So You Think You Can Dance.”
The recently beleaguered “Baby” belter will show up on the Fox reality competition with his choreographer Nick DeMoura to introduce dance crews that will vie for a spot on the season finale, the network said Friday.
Bieber will appear starting with the May 28 season premiere, introducing two dance crews on each of the four audition episodes.
The singer will also help unleash a new, Twitter-centric element to the series; after the dance crews are showcased, viewers can vote for their favorite of the two crews using Twitter hashtags. Whichever crews accumulate the most tweets will be invited to perform on the season finale. (A social media phenomenon as well as a musician, Bieber has nearly 52 million Twitter followers.)
The season premiere of “So You Think You Can Dance” will air Wednesday at 8 p.m. Good thing we all have a long weekend before then to prepare our Justin Bieber shrines for the occasion.
