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.
