I am sorry if this was posted before, but I only just saw it via Wikipedia:

First up, Mia Michaels is returning to the show! E! Online reports that she'll be back both as a judge and choreographer. Happy news for us who missed her quirky magical routines last season--remember, she suddenly quit before the sixth season began to recharge her juices.

Mary Murphy will also return to her SYTYCD roots, alternating as judge and choreographer in the seventh season, which starts May 27.

This season also sees the return of the rotating judges panel: Tyce Diorio, Lil C and Debbie Allen, among others, will return to the judging panel along with regulars Nigel Lythgoe and Adam Shankman. There can be, according to Nigel, up to four judges in a given episode.

The judges also get a lot more power in the upcoming season. While we can still vote every week to choose the bottom three, the judges will eliminate one dancer every week until the finale. In previous seasons, the judges had elimination powers until the Top 10. Then again, we'll only have a Top 10 and not a Top 20.

Mary Murphy reveals marital abuse

In the new issue of Us Weekly (on newsstands now), So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy opens up for the first time ever about surviving a nine-year abusive relationship, during which she was repeatedly raped and beaten and suffered a miscarriage .

She tells Us Weekly her ex-husband - whose name is being withheld but who says Murphy's claims are "flat-out lies" - raped her for the first time three months after they wed.

"We'd had another jealous fight, screaming, crashing over furniture, and he said, 'I want to have sex,'" Murphy, 51, tells Us Weekly. "I was like, 'Are you kidding me?! We're fighting here!' He said, 'You're my wife, and you'll do what I tell you!' I pulled out a kitchen knife and screamed, 'You're going to have to stab me, because I'm not having sex with you!' He knocked it out of my hands, held me down and raped me."
