SYTYCD Australia – Is Mary Murphy Going To Be A Judge?
Even though TEN have not confirmed the return of So You Think You Can Dance Australia there a rumours circulating that Mary Murphy a judge on the US version will be on the judging panel.
Mary who went automatically into my top five role models when she was described as a “coke fuelled nympho” is incredibly popular. She was dumped as a permanent judge on the US version of the show but ended up being reinstated.
It is no secret Australian networks love to get overseas talent for their format shows and having Mary would give the Aussie version a link to the US series.
It would be great to see Matt Lee back on the judging panel and he has only expanded his fan base with his role in Mary Poppins. They need to bring back a judge from the previous incarnation to give it some continuity link and he should be given priority over Jason Coleman.
Other people in the mix must be Jason Gilkison who is a regular on the US version, and Kelley Abbey. Also Wade Robson might want a bit of respite from his legal matter in the US and it would be great to see him on the panel as well.
I would prefer two permanent judges with one judge rotated through and this would allow new talent to be found.
Also the latest version of the US So You Think You Can Dance is going to start on ELEVEN on Friday 14 June at 7.30pm.
