A moment of silence, please, for J. Alexander's fabulous runway poses, amazing outfits and model-mocking expressions.

Every little gesture will be missed.

Tyra Banks announced Friday that America's Next Top Model was cutting longtime judge/experts Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel, and Miss J. It was a bad, bad day for ANTM fans.

Nigel told Wetpaint Entertainment he has "no doubt" the cuts were due to low ratings. They just wanted to make a change for future cycles. He didn’t seem to have any hard feelings against Tyra.

But what about the fabulous Miss J? He told UsMagazine.com, "After 18 cycles, I found myself in the bottom three and Tyra pulled a surprise triple elimination." (Ha!) "I didn’t even get to runway for my life!"

Before Cycle 18 ends, they should make a point to have Miss J do a fierce runway walk, in honor of his many great years on the show.

Walk on to bigger and better things, Miss J. Walk on.
