Overexcited 12-year-old vomits on Paula Abdul during talent show audition

There's apparently a first time for everything.

A young dancer got a little too excited when she was offered the opportunity to move onto the next round on Monday's episode of "So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation." As she hugged judge Paula Abdul, her excitement bubbled up to heights previously unseen on a talent competition show and she vomited.

"I'm so proud of you," Abdul told contestant Chi Tahani, 12, as she hugged the younger girl. It's about then that Chi seemed to realize what was about to happen.

"Are you okay?" Abdul asked as the preteen vomited on her.

Abdul took the unusual situation in stride.

"It's okay, honey," she said as she and fellow judge Nigel Lythgoe consoled the embarrassed girl.

"I've never had anyone just vomit on me like that," Abdul said as the crowd laughed.

Chi recovered quickly, too. She ran out of the theater, screaming in joy.

"I hugged Nigel and then I hugged Paula and she squeezed me too tight," Chi explained to host Cat Deeley. "And all the happiness came out on her jacket."
