Leah Miller (born July 20, 1981) is a former MuchMusic VJ from Toronto, and a former host of the now defunct show So You Think You Can Dance Canada. She was also a correspondent for the entertainment news show etalk, and E! in Canada.
Miller is the youngest of four children; she has an older sister and two older brothers. Her parents are Peter Miller and Carla (ne Parson) Miller. She won the title of Miss Junior Dance of Canada when she was 13 and danced on a competitive basis until age 16. After attending Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts and Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School in Toronto, Ontario, Miller moved to Los Angeles to gain acting experience and worked on Ashton Kutcher's celebrity prank show Punk'd and in Chris Rock's movie Down to Earth. Missing her family, she moved back to Toronto after a few years.
Miller was hired by MuchMusic as a VJ in November 2004 after trying out for four years. She hosted MuchMusic's flagship show "MuchOnDemand" for five years. She has hosted the Much Music Video Awards (MMVAS) and various Live at Much specials. Some of her notable interviews include Coldplay, Gwen Stefani, Halle Berry, Kanye West, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Matthew McConaughey, Fergie, Dallas Green, Alexisonfire, Pink, Lily Allen, Taylor Swift, Hilary Duff, Malin Åkerman, The Pussycat Dolls, Jason Segel and Paul Rudd. On August 31, 2009 Miller, along with all the other VJs, hosted her final MuchOnDemand episode. Perez Hilton, Hilary Duff and former VJ Matte Babel were included in the show.
