Mia Michaels Replaces Mary Murphy as SYTYCD Judge

So You Think You Can Dance

UPDATE: Adam Shankman tweeted this message to fans last night: “SYTYCD tweet: mary’ll b around, and mia can do group #s! All well. Thx to everyone for caring. It’s best of all worlds. Xxox”

Attention passengers - your ride aboard the “hot tamale train” is about to come to an end.

It was announced today that even more changes will be coming for the seventh season of So You Think You Can Dance. Nigel Lythgoe has already revealed the veterans that will be assisting the shortened list of competitors this summer. Now, he’s making a switch at the judges’ table.

Although we already knew that Mia Michaels would be returning to the program, we were only lead to believe that she would be contributing on an occasional basis like she has in the past. Well, it turns out Michaels will actually be replacing screamer Mary Murphy - permanently.

“I am extremely happy that Mia and Adam [Shankman] have returned and agreed to be resident judges,” Lythgoe said in a statement.

Fans of Murphy should not be completely disappointed though. Mary will now play the role of guest judge and choreographer.
