So You Think You Can Dance: Season 8 Judge Roster (PHOTOS)
Bummed out about DWTS drawing to a close? No worries, ‘cos there’s a fresh new season of “So You Think You Can Dance!” The new season (8) premieres tonight, and the lineup of judges is a bit changed.
Nigel Lythgoe will still be judging, of course. It will definitely be fun to see him interacting with the ever-shrill Mary Murphy, who was absent from last season of So You Think You Can Dance. In Lythgoe’s words, “I think she’s going to be a little quieter this season…evidently, she is only as loud as a small hairdryer now, and not the jet engine she used to be.”
Mary Murphy battled thyroid cancer recently, and after getting surgery for it in January this year, she admitted, “don’t know that I’ll ever be able to yell again. I just know that I can talk and it’ll take a little more effort right now. But I’m hoping by summertime I’ll be able to give Nigel a scream.” Luckily, it’s reported that Murphy has recovered very well, and so I’m personally hoping to hear a shriek or two from the fun-hearted judge on So You Think You Can Dance season 8.
Joining Nigel and Mary are a barrage of guest judges, who will be filling in for Adam Shankman while he has his hands full with “Rock of Ages.” Guest judges will include Debbie Allen, Toni Redpath, Jason Gilkison, Robin Antin, Lil C, Tyce Diorio, and apparently Adam Shankman will be back as a guest judge at some point, too! Are you looking forward to the new season of So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD)? Don’t forget to tune in for the 2 hour premiere tonight, 8/7c on FOX!
