Mary Murphy will be returning to Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance for the upcoming 14th season. Murphy will once again welcome dancers aboard the hot tamale train as a returning judge alongside executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. Cat Deeley will return to host the dance competition series, with one additional judge to be announced soon.

Season 14 will air this summer and auditions are set to begin in New York on March 4, 2017. After a season of featuring kids, So You Think You Can Dance will return to the 18-30 year old age group of competitors.

“I am thrilled that Mary will return to So You Think You Can Dance and I’m sure the fans will be, as well. She brings an energy and enthusiasm that’s contagious and I can’t wait for her to join me on the judging panel. I’ve got a pair of earplugs ready, and another for our third resident judge, as well,” said Lythgoe.

Talented dancers will be competing for the America’s Favorite Dancer title in styles including contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation, and breaking. Potential SYTYCD contestants can upload videos via Per Fox: “Although the deadline to register for a scheduled audition time in New York was Sunday, Feb. 19, aspiring contestants are encouraged to show up on Saturday, March 4 to audition in-person beginning at 7:00 AM at the Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet in Brooklyn, NY.”
