Season 12 is at its end, and as per usual, So You Think You Can Dance has delivered another beautiful season. The votes are in, the winner is who he or she is, and the last show brings back the Top 20 to show off wonderful moments of the entire season, before revealing who has been crowned, “America’s Favorite Dancer” who wins $250,000 and a spot in JLo’s Las Vegas show. Not only has it been an exciting new season for our Top 4 (Jaja Vankova, Hailee Payne, Gaby Diaz, and Virgil Gadson), but for our two new judges this year, joining veteran judge and producer, Nigel Lythgoe. Jason Derulo and Paula Abdul helped dole out the constructive criticism and encouragement, and gorgeous host Cat Deeley kept the live shows running on time.
Check out the SYTYCD videos from the finale (in order), and spoilers! The winner is announced below.
So You Think You Can Dance last night, was just about the pure fun, as no one was eliminated during this performance finale. Next week on SYTYCD, we will find out who is America’s favorite dancer out of Travis Wall‘s Team Stage dancers, Gaby Diaz and Hailee Payne, and Stephen “tWitch” Boss‘s Team Street dancers, Jana “JaJa” Vankova and Virgil Gadson. The judges, Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul, and Jason Derulo, offered costructive criticism and support, but at this point, it is totally up to America’s votes. Host Cat Deeley reminded us of the prize at stake, $250,000 and a spot in JLo’s Las Vegas show.

So You Think You Can Dance is almost done for the season, and I will be so sad to see it go. Luckily, I already have my tickets for the Season 12 tour, which takes the Top 10 (plus numbers 11 and 12 as alternates), and performs the best routines of the season. There’s only two episodes left – a performance finale and a results finale, which always promises a good time. It’s often the best episode of the season as finales should be. The winner’s prize is a spot in Jlo’s Las Vegas show. I’m sure judges Nigel Lythgoe, Jason Derulo, and Paula Abdul, as well as host Cat Deeley, are just as anxious as I am to see who is crowned “America’s Favorite Dancer.”
Last week Monday, certainly was the week of dance. SYTYCD had the first elimination show for their Top 20, and we were sad to say goodbye to Darion and Lily. So You Think You Can Dance changed things up this season (as they are apt to do). There were 3 dancers from Travis Wall‘s Team Stage, and 3 dancers from Stephen “tWitch” Boss‘s Team Street, in danger of going home. That’s not so different. What was different was that viewers got to tweet to save their favorites (Neptune and Moises) during the show. Two dancers were saved that way, and the judges, Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul, and Jason Derulo saved Derek and Ariana.
Before I continue with the SYTYCD dance love, Spoiler alert! The 2 dancers eliminated are announced at the end of this! And… watch all the highlight videos, and the check out the gorgeous image gallery below.
The Top 20 performed on So You Think You Can Dance last night, a chance to show off their excellence in their own forms. After a harrowing time during Vegas week, these 20 proved that they outshone their peers, and had what it takes to get to the live show. SYTYCD judges Nigel Lythgoe, Jason Derulo, and Paula Abdul had the most difficult job of choosing the best of the best, with some assistance from Team Street mentor Stephen “tWitch” Boss (most recently of Magic Mike XXL) and Team Stage mentor Travis Wall. Host Cat Deeley kept everyones spirits up during the previous episodes, but returned to the spotlight to look lovely, and do what she does best.
“Welcome… to So You Think You Can Dance!”
