adam shankman mia michaels nigel lythgoe 'So You Think You Can Dance': Mia Michaels, Adam Shankman to judge full time in Season 7Adam Shankman is returning as a permanent judge to “So You Think You Can Dance” and Mia Michaels has been added as the third full-timer for the upcoming seventh season.

Executive Producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe says, “I am extremely happy that Mia and Adam have returned and agreed to be resident judges. Mia’s outspoken approach combined with Adam’s passion will definitely add a fresh new chemistry to the panel.”

The press release from FOX makes no mention of past judge Mary Murphy and SYTYCDism said back on March 29 that Murphy would not be a permanent judge and would only be choreographing and guest judging. We have approached FOX for comment on Mary and will let you know as soon as we hear anything.

So it would appear that the three permanent judges for Season 7 are Nigel, Adam and Mia. Interesting. Do you think that will work? Or will the panel be missing the niceness of Mary Murphy now?
