Last night the So You Think You Can Dance finale aired with the top four dancers performing for one last time. Interestingly enough, all of this years finalists, Tiffany Maher, Cyrus Spencer, Eliana Girard and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp have a background in ballet. I'm pretty sure this is a So You Think You Can Dance firs; next thing you know an Opera singer will be winning American Idol.
Another first was the change to the winners themselves, on this years SYTYCD two winners were crowned: a male and female. Eliana Girard and Chehon Wesp-Tschopp were crowned the winners despite a season that included some scary injuries, meltdowns, shattered emotions, and at least one seriously hard to pronounce name. Even though they were the winners, all four of the finalists had ample screen-time to showcase their skills.
- Here are some highlights from the So You Think You Can Dance season 8 finale:
- The top 20 reunited for a group number from choreographers Sonya Tayeh and Christopher Scott.
- Judge's favorites were Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo grooving to The Cure, Travis Wall's Titanic schtick to Unchained Melody.
- Christopher Scott got in on the dancing with Twitch, Comfort, and Cyrus.
