So You Think You Can Dance - Finale Part 1
So You Think You Can Dance continues to move and inspire viewers as dancers compete in everything from Hip-Hop, Krumping, and Popping to Salsa, Quickstep and Jive to be named America's Favorite Dancer. The series follows dancers through the competition as they work with world-renowned choreographers and partner with fellow contestants, as well as All-Stars from previous seasons.
Nigel Lythgoe and Marty Murphy joined by Katie Holmes and Kenny Ortega to Judge the Finale. The All-Stars were Joshua Allen, Mark Kanemura, Lauren Froderman and Robert Roldan. Top 4 finalists are Tadd Gadduang (25, Salt Lake City, Hip Hop dance specialty), Marko Germar (22, Guam, Jazz dance specialty), Sasha Mallory (24, Bakersfield, Contemporary dance specialty), and Melanie Moore (19, Marietta, Contemporary dance specialty).
With a lack luster Finale you hear from Judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Kenny Ortega; All-Star Lauren Froderman; Choreographer Lil' C; and Dancers Sasha Mallory & Marko Germar in video 1.
Video 2 is Lil' C talking about being the So You Think You Can Dance triple threat.
Video 3 will introduce you to the So You Think You Can Dance Costume Designer Soya An. This is her 5th season designing for the show.
My bets are on Melanie to take the win as America's Favorite Dancer. She could win the cash prize of $250,000, featured on the cover of Dance Spirit Magazine, and a Gatorade athlete.
The show doesn't end tomorrow night! The Top 10 finalists from the past season will embark on a cross-country, 32-city performance tour.
