Paula Abdul will soon be judging a reality dance competition once again -- but for one night only.

The former American Idol judge, The X Factor mentor, and Live To Dance star will serve as a guest judge on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars' performance show next Monday night at 8PM ET/PT on ABC. 

"Dance has always been my first love and Dancing with the Stars epitomizes what dance can do to the human spirit, and that's why I love this show," Abdul said in a pre-taped video package broadcast during last night's Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars episode.

"I've been sneaking into the show for years and now I get to be a guest judge. To me, it's a marriage made in dancing heaven."

Abdul's upcoming appearance on the show will mark the first time Dancing with the Stars' judging panel will feature an additional fourth guest judge since ballroom dance legend Donnie Burns judged Week 7 of Season 12 in May 2011.

Abdul's last stint on reality TV was her judging role on The X Factor. She confirmed reports in January that she would not be returning to the currently-airing second edition of the Fox reality singing competition.
