Former recording artist and dancer Paula Abdul will reportedly visit Australia later this year, to launch a local version of her reality programme Live to Dance.
According to the Herald Sun, Abdul is in talks to make the trip possible with Foxtel, which screens the American series on its flagship channel FOX8.
"I've had talks and I've been invited and I absolutely said 'yes'," she said.
"I said, 'when can I come?' After February 10, I'm available, and I'm looking forward to coming down."
Abdul, who is a judge and executive producer of the series, will make a guest appearance on the local version when filming begins in the coming months.
While a host is yet to be named, it's expected that Australian Andrew Gunsberg (formerly Andrew G), who fronts the American version, will return home from his new residence in Los Angeles for the gig.
"I would love to host the show in Australia," he said.
Gunsberg has previously hosted seven seasons of Australian Idol for the Ten Network, presented on subscription music station Channel [V], and is a regular on the Today radio network.
"It's a pretty big deal (to host Live to Dance), but I try not to think about it too much and just try and do the best job I can," he said.
"I think once it's over I will be able to think about it."
While Gunsberg is the first Australian to host a live show in primetime on a major American television network like CBS, Abdul praised his enthusiastic style.
"I love him to pieces, I adore Andrew," she said.
"I think Andrew is our secret weapon. He's as charming as can be. He's living proof that you don't have to know about dance.
"He just loves the human spirit and the celebration of it all. He's in awe of the talent, and it shows. He's a gift, and we're so lucky to have him."
The format resembles the British dance competition Got to Dance, where dancers from all ages perform live to win a cash prize.
