Matthew Morrison is leaving So You Think You Can Dance.
Due to not following “competition production protocols,” the Glee alum will no longer be working on the dance competition show.
“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,” Morrison said in a statement.
“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,” he clarified.
“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.”
This news comes just one week after the season 17 premiere. We do not have more information about the protocol breach at this time.
