Choreographer, ballroom dance champion, and self-appointed “hot tamale train” conductor Mary Murphy will not be returning to Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, EW confirmed.
The show, which enters its 12th season this summer, has seen Murphy in roles as choreographer and judge from the start.
“Mary has been a huge part of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, from mentoring the dancers as a choreographer to inspiring fans as a judge. She will always be part of our DANCE family and we wish her continued success,” Fox, Dick Clark Productions and 19 Entertainment said in a statement to EW.
As of now, there is no judge announced to replace Murphy.
