So You Think You Can Dance The Finale

Wednesday, August 16, 2006

After nearly three months of auditions, dancing and voting we have now reached the final night. Tonight, we find out which of the final four will be named the 2006 So You Think You Can Dance champion. What does that mean? They will win a part for a year in Celine Dion's Las Vegas show, A New Day. They will also win a new SUV and $100,000. Who are you favorites? Who did you vote for? Nearly sixteen million voted last week. Benji, Donyelle, Heidi and Travis are all that is left, and anyone can win tonight. After a look back at last week, we see a performance by our top twenty dancers by Shane Sparks.

After a commercial break, we take a look at So You Think You Can Dance around the world, and the tour is mentioned. You can find a full list of dates here. Tonight's show being two hours long, it means we get to see a lot more dancing. Our final four picked their favorite performances from the season to perform again on tonight's show. Benji picked a dance with his cousin Heidi, while Heidi chose her contemporary performance with Travis. We have another short break before we see an all new couple return to dance for us, Natalie and Dimitry. These two heat up the dance floor. The floor is then taken over by Ciara for her performance of her new song from the movie, Step Up. Donyelle then chooses her Broadway performance with Benji to perform again. That performance is followed by a performance by Ivan and Allison picked by judge Mia Michaels to see again.

As we head into the second hour, we start to see our final four eliminated. Heidi is brought out to perform solo, and then she is told she hasn't made it into the top three. Throughout the competition, Heidi has been one of my favorite females, and I'm sad to see she didn't win. In my mind, this competition is between three dancers - Heidi, Travis and Benji. Donyelle is a good dancer, but not up to the same caliber in my mind. Next up, we see Travis and Heidi dance before we take a look back at Donyelle's time on the show before she performs solo. This means she is next to be eliminated. This also means that a man once again will win this competition.

Brian Freidman brings back Travis and Martha's Broadway performance from the first episode of the competition before we take a look back at Benji's time on the show and also see him perform solo. However, we have to wait to see Travis dance before we find out who will win. The show is far from over at this point. We see another special performance, the top ten perform, and then we see Dan Karaty choose to see last week's performance by Travis and Benji once again before the judges tell us what they think of these two.

These two started off their journey well before the show premiered in May, and by the end of tonight's show we see Benji crowned America's favorite dancer. Many had said that honor would fall to Travis, but Benji is this year's winner. Congratulations to Benji!

thanks so much for listing the songs. i really enjoy this show.

the dumb part is there should be a GIRL winner and BOY winner because everyone knows more GIRLS phone in to these shows (dancing shows) so of course a boy will ALWAYS win cause fewer girls will vote for a girl.

dumb. he he. i LOOOOVE heidi! omg. yes yes yes. that girl can dance.
