So You Think You Can Dance Winner Is…

August 15, 2006 11:11 PM by Joe Blackmon

Dance_final_four

After close to three months of So You Think You Can Dance 2, there are only four dancers left.  Benji Schwimmer, Donyelle Jones, Heidi Groskreutz and Travis Wall have clawed their way to the top.  Last week, the four final dancers performed in every pair combination possible and also gave solo dances.  This week, the live season finale will air on Wednesday, Aug. 16 from 8:00-10:00 PM ET, and the final voting results will be revealed.

Either Benji, Donyelle, Heidi, or Travis will be crowned America’s favorite dancer.  The winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize, a new car and a one-year contract with Celine Dion’s Las Vegas show, "A New Day." Featured guest artists for the So You Think You Can Dance Finale will include Ciara, performing "Get Up" from the "Step Up" movie soundtrack, and Fergie, who will perform "London Bridge."

After last week’s show, all four performers received praise from the judges, but Travis stood out as receiving perhaps the strongest overall praise.  Last year, Nick Lazzarini won the first So You Think You Can Dance.  Will a boy win again?  In addition to Travis, Benji also seems to be a fan favorite.  However, Heidi and Donyelle have their supporters as well and should not be counted out.  Our prediction though is that Travis Wall will take home the title.  Please post your predictions in the comment section below.

    I THINK BENJI OR TRAVIS IS GOING TO WIN THE WHOLE THING. I REALLY HOPE IT IS BENJI AND NOT TRAVIS BECAUSE TRAVIS IS SICK IN THE HEAD AFTER WHAT I READ ABOUT HIM. GO BENJI!

    It’ll be Travis. But, what are you talking about with him being “sick in the head”?

    I agree that it will be Travis. Both he and Benji are really talented. I don’t understand the “sick in the heard” comment either.

    Travis is my vote because I think he would be perfect for the Celine Dion performance. However, Benji and Heidi and show stoppers and I wish there was some venue out there where their particular talent could be showcased. They are fun and exciting to watch. I personally would not buy a ticket to see a live Tour of So You Think…finalist, but I would certainly tune in if TV shows went that direction. I love watching Variety Shows featuring the singing and dancing. Maybe they could be the next Sonny and Cher or Donnie & Marie. I guess I am dating myself! Can’t wait for tonight….

    Benji should totally win. He’s way better than all of the others!

    I think that Travis should win because he can do lots of different kinds of dances well. Celine would be lucky to have him in her show. Travis gets my vote. And why does someone think he’s sick in the head?

    HEIDI!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!! I AM SO PISSED HEIDI DIDN’T WIN!!!!!! This reminds me of the quote about Ginger Rogers: “She did everything Fred Astaire did…only backwards and in high heels.” Heidi performed with an excellence unsurpassed by any of the dancers on whom tv wasted its minutes showing. MORE HEIDI!!!! If I had a dance show or a movie, I would instantly cast Heidi. She is phenomenal!!! I AM SO PISSED!!!!

    BENJI WON.

    ogeatmenow@yahoo.com
    on the last results show, Cat didn’t say that Benji had the 2nd lowest amount of votes – she said that TRAVIS definitely didn’t have the lowest amount of votes, and thus left Benji & Ivan. She was looking for the one w/ the lowest amount of votes – it wasn’t Benji, it was IVAN. She NEVER said Benji had the 2nd lowest amount of votes, for all we know, he could have had the most votes and was in the “bottom 2″ because they wanted to create suspense. In fact, Cat even said at the beginning of the results show after Heidi was safe that it didn’t necessarily mean Heidi had the most votes, it just meant she didn’t have the LEAST amount of votes. I hope i’ve explained it well enough for you to understand.. – -”

    Benji never did come in second. Cat said one of the two (Ivan or Benji) had the lowest votes. She also said Traves didn’t have the highest. Benji was never in the bottom during the whole contest. Travis was in the bottom constently.

  45. Sandra Peters Says:
    August 19th, 2006 at 12:58 am

    Benji was the only dancer that was never had to dance for his life. He was never voted in the bottom group. If you look at the fox poll Benji was way ahead of Travis all the way. They just tried to push Travis at the end because Mia wanted him in her show.

    In my opinion – and many maannyy people i know- Travis Wall should have easily been the winner.
    As a dancer myself, i know travis shouldve won. One of the substitute teachers at my studio is good friends with Travis. She talks about him -even brags- about him, and how the show is nothing to him- that he is outstanding in real life. Also, the show is not callled So You Think You Can Perform. Benji can PERFORM. Im not saying he cant dance, though Travis is a much better DANCER. hense the show title- So You Think You Can Dance.

  47. Sandra Peters Says:
    August 19th, 2006 at 11:33 pm

    I guess the voters did not think Travis was better or they would have voted for him. I don’t think Travis at any time was ahead in this contest.

    I have been watching but I was able to see who the winner was – Travis or Benji. The show was stopped abruptly on my television. Could you kindly inform me of the winner. this was the best show in a long while. I enjoyed every minute of it. All the dancers are so talented and entertaining. I am from Trinidad and I look forward for another season.
