Well, kind of. 

FOX has confirmed that popular, Emmy-winning choreographer Mia Michaels has signed on to "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 7, taking a permanent spot on the weekly judging panel.

She will sit alongside fellow judges Adam Shankman and Nigel Lythgoe and yes, it's true, Mary Murphy will be M.I.A.

Murphy is not leaving the show altogether, but will instead return as a guest judge and, because she's not judging each week, she'll also have to opportunity to choreograph.

Murphy, who is a ballroom expert, will no doubt lend her expertise to the dancers saddled with that style this season.

Murphy will also be seen as a judge during the audition episodes, just as she has been in all the previous seasons.

In fact, Korbi TV caught up with Murphy during Vegas week and got her thoughts on Season 7's prospective talent. 

And judging by the Season 7 "gang sign" she throws up at the end of our interview, we're thinking she's cool with what's to come...


Any thoughts?

Will you miss Mary on the panel each week?
