The 2011 finale of So You Think You Can Dance was a display of strong performances, the four finalists gave their best. Head judge Nigel Lythgoe remarked in a comment on Thursday night that the winner will be one of the two remaining women: Sasha Mallory or Melanie Moore.
After 11.5 million votes the competition came down to the two women.
The winner with almost 50 percent of the Top Four vote was Melanie Moore. She was crowned America’s Favorite Dancer.
“You two are both exquisite dancers, you have both been amazing,” Cat Deeley told the dual finalists – only moments before announcing the winner.
For the first time in all the eight seasons two females were the top contestants.
The crowning was a beautiful moment, the crowds cheering and confetti falling upon everyone, pyrotechnics making her face seem even more glamorous and Moore was crowned America’s Favorite Dancer.
[googlead tip=”lista_mica” aliniat=”stanga”]”Thank you,” is what she could utter as tears flowed heavily down her beautiful face, smiling, right then she was lifted on their arms by the entire Top 20.
The rest of the contestants for the So You Think You Can Dance finale came Mallory second with a 32 percent of the vote; Germar, third; and Gadduang, fourth.
So You Think You Can Dance 2011 Finale – the toughest contest
[googlead tip=”vertical_mare” aliniat=”dreapta”] In the beginning there were thousands and thousands of wannabes, nine weeks ago, and it came down to only twenty dancers fighting for the $250k prize and a sponsorship deal. After the weeks went by, only four contestants, some would argue the best, made it to the finals.
Moore, 19, of Marietta, Ga., had been the highest rated contestant from the start of the season when she and Germar amazed the judges with their statue routine. Moore was imersed in to the material and seemed to enjoy every new partnership. This lead to her being called an “actress”, in addition of being a dancer.
Mallory, 23, of Bakersfield, Calif., was tied to Alexander Fost in the beginning, but they didn’t reach an understanding, they had no chemistry. After they were separated she immediately climbed to the top with emotional routines – such as her wall routine in season 7’s with Kent Boyd – as well as strong and powerful, like the breakfast table routine from season 4, when Twitch was her partner.
The Final Four’s only B-Boy, Gadduang, 25, born in West Valley City, Utah, was named the underdog because he was forced to dance out of his style all season long. His “ace-in-the-sleeve” was his “sweetie-pie factor” and that’s what won Murphy over, even though he was the only finalist from the four who was perpetually at the bottom of this season.
The Guam native, Germar, 22, had began the competition at a disadvantage, after having been shot in the shoulder just a couple of years ago, but he didn’t let his shoulder injury hold him back and judge Mary Murphy even said that he’s to be “a beast just like the girls.” When his mother came from Guam to watch him dance he broke into tears. He’s a “crier,”, in his own words.
