Variety recently reported that former “Glee” star Matthew Morrison will no longer be a judge on the popular dancing competition show – “So You Think You Can Dance.” The reason for this is the fact that the actor apparently failed to follow “competition production guidelines.”
In a statement released on Friday, the 43-year-old confirmed his resignation from the Fox TV show, which aired on May 18.
In an official statement, Morisson said – “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. 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. 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.”
