So You Think You Can Dance Melanie Moore named America's Favorite Dancer

Posted on

It was a fitting performance finale, no? There were a couple of high points — Tadd’s boxers, Marko and Lauren, Cat scoring Melanie a job (albeit on the much-maligned remake of Dirty Dancing), Melanie and Sasha’s Stacey Tookey routine, Mark and Sasha Sonya Tayeh piece, Sasha’s solo… are we noticing a trend here? But the night was mostly marked by a “Where did that come from?” sense of struggle from all four finalists. Were you underwhelmed, Dance fans? Or do you think the final four pulled it off? Who do you think should win? Who do you think will win? (And might that be the same person?) Share your thoughts during the live, two-hour finale, and we’ll give you tonight’s results as soon as the show closes! Update: The results have been announced! And America’s Favorite Dancer is…

Melanie! Sasha took second place, with Marko in third, and Tadd in fourth. Are you happy with the results, Dance fans? Surprised? Relieved? Verklempt? What was the highlight of the night? Were there any routines you wanted to see that weren’t performed? Do you already have your tickets to the tour? Are you champing at the bit for season 9?
