Mary Murphy hoofing her way off 'So You Think You Can Dance'
So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy is leaving the show, according to ew.com.
No reason was given for Murphy's departure. The show begins its 12th season this summer. Perhaps 12 years of doing the same thing had something to do with Murphy calling it quits.
At least with Murphy gone, viewers won't need earplugs anymore since no one else will ever scream "Hot Tamale Train!" quite like she does.
