Exclusive Interview: Mary Murphy Talks SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Finale

mary murphyAfter meeting the most enthusiastic judge in reality television history at both Monday’s TEEN CHOICE AWARDS ’08 and Wednesday’s taping of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, one fact has become undeniably clear. Mary Murphy is America’s unofficial Ambassador of Dance.

Not only is she a tireless promoter of the show and the genre, her love and respect for the remarkable young talents competing in tonight’s two-hour finale is a welcome change from the usual negative vibe that emanates from most reality television.

Press ‘play’ below to listen to Murphy’s take on the finalists, what it felt like putting on those dance shoes for tonight’s finale and what changes might be in store when SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE returns for a fifth season next summer.

And please note that joining theTVaddict.com in the interview was BuddyTV.com’s John Kubicek and MSNTV’s Dave Lake.

    Wish media outlets had a different headshot of Ms. Murphy. That is the freakiest smile, and it looks like she’s got a mustache. She can’t possibly be that hideous, can she? I don’t watch the show, will never watch the show, don’t understand why other people watch the show…I’m just really baffled. American TV viewers are such mindless numbskulls.

    this women is so loud. why does she need to scream all the time. Wish i could tell her to just shout up, she has such a big mouth. I would love to watch ‘so you think you can dance’ but this women completely turns me off watching it. Someone tell her to turn down the volume

    She is the worst ambassador of dance. I am not a fan of dance but I used to enjoy the show until I got so sick of Murphy’s screaming that I just stopped watching. It’s too bad because I was developing an appreciation for the art form that I didn’t previously have.
