Matthew Morrison Announces So You Think You Can Dance Exit

Posted 2022/05/29 6 0


Matthew Morrison says he’s out as a judge at So You Think You Can Dance after he failed to follow “competition production protocols.”

Matthew Morrison is out at So You Think You Can Dance. Per Variety, the former Glee star had failed to “follow competition production protocols, which had led to his exit. Morrison also released a statement confirming that he will no longer be a part of the Fox series moving forward. You can read the statement below.

“Having the opportunity to be a judge on So You Think You Can Dance was an incredible honor for me. Therefore, it is my deepest regret to inform you that I will be leaving the show. After filming the audition rounds for the show and completing the selection of the 12 finalists, I did not follow competition production protocols, preventing me from being able to judge the competition fairly. I cannot apologize enough to all involved and I will be watching alongside you all on what I know will be one of the best seasons yet.”

It’s unclear what exactly Morrison had done to warrant his dismissal from So You Think You Can Dance, but a report by US Weekly states that it was a “minor infraction.” Fox representatives also told the publication that the network will “soon announce a new judge to the series for the next wave of the competition starting on June 15th featuring the Top 12 performing for America’s vote.”

So You Think You Can Dance Because he has already done some filming before his dismissal, Morrison will appear in four episodes of the current season before vanishing from the program. Last month, it was reported that Morrison would be joining the series as a judge for the new season alongside JoJo Siwa and Twitch, while Cat Deeley returned as host. The new judges replaced Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, and Laurieann Gibson.

So You Think You Can Dance has been on the air since 2005, and Deeley has been with the series since season 2. The reality competition series follows dancers showcasing their talents in an attempt to be crowned as “America’s favorite dancer.” The show has won nine Emmy Awards, including seven wins for Outstanding Choreography.

Where Will Matthew Morrison Go Next?

Clearly, Matthew Morrison is not happy about what happened with So You Think You Can Dance, but a “minor infraction” is certainly not going to put an end to his career, even if it cuts his time on the dancing reality show short. In recent years, Morrison served as a dance captain on the British reality show The Greatest Dancer and had a main role in the FX horror series American Horror Story: 1984. He also played the titular character in a television special based on The Grinch and appeared in the Chinese comedy movie Crazy Alien.

Morrison also remains in the public eye after the hit series Glee recently made its way to Disney+. Fans have been streaming the musical program’s classic episodes and the renewed attention on Morrison should make it fairly simple to find a new gig.
