So You Think You Can Dance: Melanie Moore wins Favorite Dancer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Melanie Moore, 19-year-old dancer from Marietta,Ga, won the seven season of “So You Think You Dance” on Thursday night. It’s really the dance that won and also by a popularity vote too for the fans who watch the show. Their routines of dance numbers were incredible to watch. So, many creativity in dance to watch and their choreographers taught them the different type of hip-hop, the edgy kind. So wonder this show wins awards for best choreography in a variety show.

When they reveal that the men were cut, Tadd and Marko, this left Melanie and Sasha in the running. These two women were both strong dancers and different in styles.

Every single week the judges have to pick one out of the three person of who will stay in the competition. The top three were chosen by the people, and the judges have to pick which they like.  American Idol will do this in Spring of 2012. They will change the voting procedures. They had a wide selection of judges such as Lady Gaga, Kristin Chenoweth, Megan Mullally, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Christina Applegate and — hello — Katie Holmes, all of whom actually added to our appreciation of the art.Fergusonwas back for the finale — the only non-dancy person behind the judges’ table. They had a surprise guest to come to the dance studio.  It was the cast of Glee, Rivera, Heather Morris and Harry Shum Jr. They gave the four nominees to see a sneak preview to see “Glee 3D.”

During the pass two hours, they showed the judges favorite dance routine, and they were incredible dancers to watch. Over 11.5 million people either watch or voted for their favorite. It was like getting a free preview of  “So You Think You Can Dance”  tour coming soon in arenas across theUnited States. It can’t wait to see them in arenas.
