Who Won So You Think You Can Dance?

by at . Comments

Considered a frontrunner for a duration of the season, 19-year old Melanie Moore fulfilled her promise tonight and was named the So You Think You Can Dance champion.

The Marietta, Georgia native and Fordham University student garnered 47 percent of the vote, defeating Sasha (second), Marko (third) and Tadd (fourth) in the final tally.

In addition to her dancing ability, Moore was consistently praised by the SYTYCD judges for her acting chops, something they noted since her first Contemporary routine, when Melanie and Marko pretended to be two statues yearning to merge as one.

So, did America get it right? Should Melanie Moore be the So You Think You Can Dance champion?
