Network Ten's So You Think You Can Dance Australia reboot has finally unveiled its new line-up for the upcoming 2014 series.

The Project's Carrie Bickmore will host the revived reality dancing show, which had been canned in 2011.

"I am so excited to be involved in So You Think You Can Dance Australia. I have loved dancing since I was a little girl," Carrie said in a statement.

"I remember thinking when I first watched the show years ago that it was a production I would have loved to be involved with. It's fun, high energy and you can’t help but be awestruck by the talent of the dancers."

Carrie replaces former host Natalie Bassingthwaighte, who is now a judge on Seven's X Factor. We think Carrie will do a great job — we hope she delivers some classic moments like this one from The Project ...

The other high-profile appointment is US singer Paula Abdul as a judge. The former American Idol and X Factor judge recently was a guest judge on the US version of SYTYCD and US Dancing With The Stars. On that note, here's Paula doing an interview drunk ... yup, you know you wanna watch!

The other judges are Aussie choreographer Jason Gilkison, creator of international ballroom sensation Burn The Floor, and choreographer/performers Aaron Cash and Shannon Holtzapffel.

Aaron was Cher's lead dancer for 10 years, as well as being one of the original Tap Dogs. Shannon danced for Michael Jackson and tours currently with Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera.
