Mia Michaels to serve as resident 'So You Think You Can Dance' judge

By Christopher Rocchio, 05/11/2010 

Mia Michaels is becoming a So You Think You Can Dance regular.

Fox has announced that Michaels will join So You Think You Can Dance creator Nigel Lythgoe and director/choreographer Adam Shankman as a regular member of the show's seventh-season judging panel.

Lythgoe had previously stated that Michaels and Mary Murphy would join fellow choreographers Tyce Diorio, Lil' C and Debbie Allen, among others, in alternating on the show's seventh-season judging panel with Shankman and himself.

Although Fox declined to clarify Murphy's role when contacted, the announcement would seem to signal that Murphy -- who had been a regular weekly member of the judging panel since the show's third season -- and the remaining choreographers will now only serve as a fourth judge, which Lythgoe had previously said the season will "sometimes" feature.

"I am extremely happy that Mia and Adam have returned and agreed to be resident judges," said Lythgoe.

"Mia's outspoken approach combined with Adam's passion will definitely add a fresh new chemistry to the panel."

Michaels announced in October that she would be leaving her frequent role as So You Think You Can Dance choreographer and guest judge to instead focus on "other projects."

At the time, Michaels also stated she would "definitely come back as a guest" -- which she did as a guest judge during a seventh-season audition in New York City in January.

So You Think You Can Dance's seventh season premieres May 27 and features several previously-announced format changes, including an all-star pool of former finalists who will be partnered with the seventh-season contestants.
