Paula Abdul got more than she bargained for when “So You Think You Can Dance: Next Generation” contestant Tahani took the stage.
The tiny hip-hop dancer wowed the judges as she danced to Beyoncé’s “Countdown” at the Chicago auditions.
When Tahani found out she had made it through to the next round, she was elated.
She ran up to hug Nigel Lythgoe, but when she went up for a squeeze from Paula, the unimaginable happened: She started vomiting… big-time!
The 13-year-old apologized, but Paula took it all in stride.
Afterward, Tahani told Cat Deeley, “I hugged Nigel. I hugged Paula, and she just squeezed me too tight, and all the happiness came [out] on her jacket.”
Warning: Graphic Video
Paula addressed the queasy encounter, telling the crowd, “I never had anyone vomit on me like that.”
