So You Think You Can Dance: America’s Favorite Dancer is …

And the Winner of ‘SYTYCD’ Season 12 Is….

Tonight on FOX, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE continues with an all new Monday, September 14 season 12 episode 16 called “Finale Part 2: Winner Chosen”. The America based dance show was about to decide the fate of best American Dancer, Going from past 10 years, the show has finally awarded the best dancer of the show.

Finally, a tapper, 19-year-old Team Stage contestant Gaby Diaz, won the title of “America’s Favorite Dancer” on Monday night’s grand finale. (She also won $250,000. She can buy a lot of tap shoes with that kind of money.) Making the plucky young tap dancer’s victory even more historical was the fact that she almost didn’t make it onto SYTYCD at all this year. However, she refused to accept defeat and returned to give it another go at the Detroit auditions, heeding the judges’ critiques and retooling her solo to be less “busy.” The second time was the charm, and from that point on, Gaby was a frontrunner. And this week, her fancy footwork (in everything from tap to Bollywood) led her all the way to the winner’s circle, as she beat out Team Street’s Jaja Vankova and Virgil Gadson (who placed second and third, respectively) and fourth-placer Hailee Payne of Team Stage.

Honestly, it was last week’s death-defying box routine, with all-star Zack Everhart, that probably sealed the deal for Gaby, if she didn’t already have the competition all locked up. This was truly the performance of a champion: To celebrate Gaby’s hard-won and historical triumph, below in chronological order are the rest of her routines of SYTYCD Season 12.

When it was defined the pick for Hailee and Virgil is the same, then the quite obvious thing has come into everyone’s mind that they are going out of the competition and it does happen. Cue music, enjoy… and hopefully this show will be renewed (Team Street captain Travis Wall just won a Best Choreography Emmy, so there’s hope) and the music will cue up again in Season 13. Though, before I begin getting into detail, I do have to say that I was right about all my predictions for this season so “Ha” for those who didn’t believe they would come true. However Paula had two favorite picks and for her second she went with Jaja, someone you can still honestly root for, and last season’s winner Ricky dancing their Broadway number. And, in addition to maybe spin-off, there was also nice moment between Twitch and Travis when they both chose as a favorite a dance belonging to the other team.
