ET learned exclusively on Tuesday that Burke would be filling in for Miller after her abrupt exit from the show, though the choreographer told ET on Wednesday that she thinks it's "great" that Burke will be stepping in.

"I think that's great," Miller explained, adding that she left the show after production frustrations. "I only met her once at a housewarming party a couple weeks ago. I'm glad that someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on Dancing With the Stars is going to see what I've been working with for seven years."

"I don't think she's replacing me, I think it's going to be a different vibe," she added.
