After stints on "American Idol" and "The X Factor," Paula Abdul has a new judging gig on "Dancing With The Stars." But it will only be for one night next week.

Abdul will join Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as a special guest judge next Monday.

In a taped segment, Abdul said she's been sneaking in to watch "Dancing With The Stars" for years. She said being a judge for a night is a "dream made in dancing heaven."

Abdul got her start as a Laker girl and became the choreographer for the dance team. She has won two Emmys and multiple musical awards, including a Grammy, seven MTV Video Awards and two People's Choice Awards.
