Leah Remini’s Other SYTYCD Judges Weigh in on Her Casting


Lea Remini puts on her dancing shoes for her new concert.

Take over from the old So you think you can dance judge Matthew Morrisonthe Kevin can wait the actress exclusively told E! New’ pop of the day that she’s “having so much fun” in her new role as a judge on FOX’s competition series

“I love the show,” Remini said. “It’s such a community.”

She was announced as Morrison’s replacement in June 2022 after the Joy alum revealed that he will be leaving the show in May. It was later alleged that he was fired from the show after he made a contestant feel uncomfortable by sending “naughty” messages on social media; however, he has since denied what he called “obviously false statements made anonymously.”

But Remini doesn’t dwell on the former judge’s controversy. Instead, the 52-year-old said pop of the day“I just want to be entertained.”

“This show is not about the best dancer,” she continued. “It’s about the best performer. It’s about the audience choosing their favorite, and that doesn’t always come in the form of perfect technique.”
