Murphy, a ballroom dance champion and choreographer, was one of the original judges on the dance competition series. Alongside Nigel Lythgoe, she is one of the show’s longest-serving judges.
For season 14, Murphy will join Lythgoe and host Cat Deeley. FOX says a third judge will be announced soon. The new season of So You Think You Can Dance is slated to debut this summer.
I am thrilled that Mary will return to SYTYCD and I’m sure the fans will be, as well. She brings an energy and enthusiasm that’s contagious and I can’t wait for her to join me on the judging panel. I’ve got a pair of earplugs ready, and another for our third resident judge, as well.”
What do you think? Do you watch So You Think You Can Dance? Are you excited Mary is returning?
