Watch A So You Think You Can Dance Contestant Vomit On Paula Abdul

There’s nothing more adorable than competent child dancers on So You Think You Can Dance. But sometimes those competent and adorable child dancers can still throw the audience for a curveball, such as when they vomit all over a judge on the series. Recently, 12-year-old Chi Tahani totally blew us away before blowing chunks all over Paula Abdul. Watch the unexpectedly gross moment, below.

Chi Tahani chose a dance to Beyonce’s "Countdown" to kick off her So You Think You Can Dance audition for the Fox competition series. She totally crushed it, incorporating some acrobatics and some epic facial expressions during the dance. Her moves were enough to land her praise from the judges, who immediately stood up and waved plane tickets at her, letting her know she was moving forward to the next round. The 12-year-old old was ecstatic and made her way over to the table, where she promptly hugged the judges and then vomited all over Paula Abdul. She's not the only person to vomit on TV during the last several months, either, as the new Top Gear trailer also featured Chris Evans losing his lunch. (That one's far less amusing.)

Abdul is actually a really kind lady, and totally took the whole thing in stride, cracking a joke about how that’s the first time she was vomited on while filming a TV show. The vomiting happens around the :38 second mark, for those who don’t have time to watch the actual cute dancing toward the beginning. Actually, we’ll just go ahead and highlight the particularly gross moment.

There’s nothing like the amazing shock factor of seeing a little girl contestant just throw up on one of the most popular reality TV judges of all time, except maybe when that little girl responds to throwing up all over one of her idols. Here’s what she had to say:

I hugged Nigel, and I hugged Paula. And she just squeezed me too tight. And all the happiness came out on her jacket.

She said it in such an adorable manner, it kind of just made me want to squeeze her. Until I remembered exactly what would happen if that action was attempted.

So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation is currently airing its 13th season on Fox. You can catch new episodes on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET. If you want to find out what other fascinating TV is airing this summer, you can check out our premiere schedule.
