Simon Cowell already has a huge hit on his hands with America’s Got Talent and American Idol, and now there’s a rumor he’s moving on from chords to the cha-cha, with a competitive dance program. So how does So You Think You Can Dance producer and judge, Nigel Lythgoe, feel about the potential competition? “I’m thrilled to hear that Simon Cowell is doing a dance show,” Nigel tells OK! exclusively.

“He is an excellent producer and any program that exposes the huge talent that has been discovered in the area  of dance is extremely exciting,” he adds.

Simon’s rep has shot down the idea in the press, so dance lovers will just have to wait and see if SYTYCD gets a challenger!
