Tonight, the winner of the third season of So You Think You Can Dance
will be crowned. While the finalists for the last season of American
Idol fell short in comparison to previous American Idol seasons in
regards to overall talent level, the same cannot be said fortunately
for this season of So You Think You Can Dance.
The So You Think You Can Dance judges outdid themselves in selecting the most overall talented group of finalists to take the stage in the shows three seasons. The final six competition show proved to be a no holds barred dance-off of epic proportions, and while the final four competition show wasn’t quite as good, it still proved highly entertaining.
The biggest question might be “Will a girl finally win So You Think You Can Dance?” For the previous two seasons, the title has gone to a male dancer. Nick Lazzarini won the first season, while Benji Schwimmer won the second season.
During the performance finale, Nigel Lythgoe said “From the shows point of view, it would be good to see a girl win, because a girl hasn’t won yet. From my own personal point of view, I’ll be happy to see anyone America chooses because any one of these four deserves it.” Lythgoe makes a great point, because no matter who wins the third season of So You Think You Can Dance, they will have fully earned it by taking on some very tough competition.
