After a talented young dancer amazed the judges on US show, So You Think You Can Dance, it seemed either the energetic routine or the nerves got the better of the 12-year-old.

As Paula Abdul hugged contestant Chi Tahani after she performed to Beyonce’s Countdown this week, the youngster threw up at the judges table.

But instead of jumping out the way a concerned Paula reassured the dancer, saying: “It’s ok, honey.”

The 53-year-old singer went on to say to the audience: “I’ve never had anyone just vomit on me like that.”

But Chi wasn’t about to let a little bout of sickness get in the way of making it through to the next round.

The talented youngster left the auditorium waving and screaming with happiness.

“She just squeezed me too tight. And all the happiness came out on her jacket.” Chi explained after.

It may have been a rough start but this tiny dancer is certainly destined for big things.
