Mary Murphy Returning to ‘SYTYCD’
“I am delighted to have Mary back on the show,” says producer Nigel Lythgoe.
Judge Mary Murphy is returning to Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, it was announced Tuesday.
The spunky dancer and choreographer had been a full-time judge from 2007-2009 but stepped down last season; consequently, ratings dipped.
“I am delighted to have Mary back on the show,” producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe said in a statement. “Her expertise in dance, coupled with her warmth, compassion and humor, make her an excellent judge and fun to work with.”
Auditions for season 8 kick off in Salt Lake City (Feb. 2), Los Angeles (Feb. 25) and Charlotte, N.C. (March 1).
The season is set to air in summer 2011.
