After five years of judging "So You Think You Can Dance", Mia Michaels feels that it is time for her to move on. She officially confirmed her departure from the FOX show, writing on her Facebook on Wednesday, October 14, "Today was my official resignation of the U.S. show and look forward to what's ahead for me."

There is still no mention on why the Emmy-winning choreographer walks out of the show. She only hinted on her Twitter that there is a new project lying ahead. She wrote, "To create moments and movement for the world to share with me was a gift...thanks SYTYCD and look forward to whats ahead for me...lookout world!!!!!"

Mia Michaels was still a judge on the Las Vegas round airing this week. The top 20 from the sixth season batch will be announced on Wednesday, October 21.

In September, "SYTYCD" has promoted guest judge Adam Shankman to be a regular on the show. With his recruitment and Mia's exit, the panel will thus consist of Adam, Mary Murphy and head judge Nigel Lythgoe. Guest judges, who have been filling the third seat throughout the fifth season, will still be part of the current sixth season.

Mia was so full of herself and pretentious, e.g., "let your movement be organic," "I can't stand Brandon's squinty eyes," etc. There are marvalous choreographers and Mia was just one of them.

I will miss the wonderful movement of her dance and approach to life's meaning as well as the emotionality of her feelings that are so perfectly expressed as the art of dance is executed.

Its a sad day to see Mia go. She's talented,compasionate,loving and easy on the eyes. I love her individual approach to life and screen. I'm no kid by any means but am a better person because of her honesty and feelings that she expressed. I a wait your next move. always
