Prepare to see a lot more of Vanessa Hudgens on TV. The actress, who starred in the NBC comedy Powerless, is adding another show to her resumé. High School Musical and Grease Live! fans will be happy to find out V is going back to her dancing roots by joining the So You Think You Can Dance judge panel for Season 14, premiering on June 12 at 8 PM EST.

Co-creator and judge Nigel Lythgoe is super enthusiastic about Vanessa joining him on the show.

“I am so excited for Vanessa to join Mary [Murphy] and me on the judging panel for the 14th season of So You Think You Can Dance,” he said statement. “There was instant chemistry in the audition rounds, and I know the SYTYCD fans will love her as much as we do. Vanessa is an accomplished artist and brings her own brand of enthusiasm and energy to our panel.”

We are so excited to see Vanessa in action! We have a feeling we’re all about to be hit with a wave of HSM nostalgia, assuming she busts out some moves during her run as a judge.
