Mary Murphy In, Mia Michaels Out on 'So You Think You Can Dance,' 'Grey's Anatomy' Musical in the Works and More

Mary MurphyLadies and gentleman, Mary Murphy is back! That's right, the 'So You Think You Can Dance' veteran is returning to the judging table, replacing choreographer Mia Michaels.

"Last year when I was sitting on the [judges] panel, I knew it wasn't the right fit because I felt too glossy sitting on the panel," Michaels told E! Online. "People were so focused on what I wore and my hair. I wanted to get dirty and back to the work. I am an artist and I'm a visionary. I need to paint my world now and not be constantly linked to 'So You think You Can Dance.'"

Michaels' post-'SYTYCD' time with a Bravo reality series, writing a memoir and developing a Broadway show.

Look for Murphy to return next season.

Isn't there anyone else who can judge dance? Mary gets on my last nerve, I absolutely cannot stand her voice and that cackle. God, I used to love that show, but now that she's back, I may be gone, or at least DVR the show and fast forward past her crap.

This monster mouth will ruin a good show! And also wear out the volume mute on millions of TV sets. Surely there is someone who cannot be heard from New York to LA to fit Michals' spot!
