When So You Think You Can Dance premieres its seventh season on Thursday (8/7c on Fox), viewers will notice some major changes. Choreographer Mia Michaels will be a permanent judge — taking Mary Murphy's place — and the 10 finalists will pair up with previous all-star contestants, resulting in only one eliminated dancer per week. Both the performance and results show will air live. As host Cat Deeley puts it, "Anything can happen — and it will." TVGuide.com spoke to Deeley about what advice the all-stars will have for the newbies, why she calls Michaels "bonkers," and how her wardrobe on the show has inspired her to create a jewelry line.
TVGuide.com: What do you think about Mia Michaels becoming a permanent judge?
Cat Deeley: I love it. I love Mary Murphy too. She's still going to be part of the family, still going to do choreography for us, but Mia is held is such high esteem by the dance world. She's a genius in terms of her choreography and I can't wait to see her on the panel. The dancers really want to hear what she's got to say. They really respect her opinions and she very rarely sugarcoats them. She's very honest and even if she criticizes, it's constructive criticism. I love the fact that she's a little bit bonkers. Let's face facts: She would be the first person to turn around and go, "I am."
