SYTYCD Contestant Pukes On Paula
Tahani, 12, had impressed Abdul, Nigel Lythgoe and Jason DeRulo with her hip-hop dance routine. Immediately after the performance ended, all three judges stood up with a ticket to show that she was unequivocally through to the next round of the dancing competition. After a hug with Nigel, Tahani was embraced by Abdul, who said, “I’m so proud of you.”
With Abdul’s arms still around her, Tahani’s cheeks bulged and eyes opened wide. She then proceeded to vomit on Abdul’s arm, much to the surprise of the former pop star and those in the audience.
“It’s ok honey,” Abdul told Tahani. “It’s ok.”
“I’m so sorry,” Tahani apologized.
“I’ve never had anyone just vomit on me like that,” Abdul told the crowd.
Afterwards, Tahani told So You Think You Can Dance’s host Cat Deeley, “I hugged Nigel, and then I hugged Paula and she squeezed me too tight and all the happiness came out … on her jacket,”
