Hello everyone, and welcome to the Season 6 Finale of So You Think You Can Dance.  We start the night off with a high energy performance by our Top 20, to “Scared of Me” by Fedde Le Grand.  Cat comes out in her silver sequins to introduce all 6 judges for the night:  Lil’C, Tyce Diorio, Debbie Allen, Adam Shankman, Mary Murphy, and Nigel Lythgoe.  Who will win the grand prize of $250,000 and be on the cover of Dance Spirit Magazine?

After a shout out to all of the choreographers and a recap of last night’s performances, Cat informs us that Season 7 auditions start next month in Miami and New York.  Please go to for more details.

The judges pick their favorite routines of the season for us to watch again.  Lil’C picks the Hip-Hop number by Kevin, Legacy, and Russell…WOW is all I can say!  Adam chooses Sonya’s piece choreographed for Ellenore and Jakob, and it’s even more powerful than the first time they performed it.  Nigel picks the Tap routine by Bianca, Peter, and Phillip.  Mary does something different…she chooses to see married couple Ashleigh and Ryan perform a brand new Jive, danced to “Straight To Number One” by Touch and Go.  It really was great to see them dance their own style together!

Leona Lewis comes out to perform the title track for the new movie “Avatar.  The song is “I See You”, a really gorgeous number that shows off Leona’s incredible voice.  After that, we have a dance performance by The Groovaloos, and their street style is incredible!

Nigel picks another performance, Kathryn and Jakob’s Contemporary from last night.  Tyce decides on Mollee and Nathan’s Bollywood routine, and I really am intrigued by this style.  I would love to learn it!

The Top 6 come out with a slight delay, due to the fact that Russell hurt his knee and is in extreme pain.  He leans on Ryan to come out on stage with everyone.  Cat announces that the dancer in 6th place is Ryan.

Adam Lambert performs next, and I really love his vocals on “What Do You Want From Me”.  Thankfully, he behaved himself on stage…nothing controversial in this performance!

We look back at the highs and lows of the entire season, and the remaining 5 are on stage, with Russell sitting on a stool.  Cat announces that the dancer in 5th place is Ashleigh.

Adam chooses another dance as well…Ellenore and Legacy’s dramatic “War of the Roses” type routine over the giant table.  He also believes that Travis Wall may be nominated for an Emmy for this one!  Debbie picks Noelle and Russell’s African Jazz, and since Russell is injured we see the tape of the original performance.  The Top 4 come back out, and Ellenore comes out in 4th place.

Lil’C chooses a number from the beginning of the season…”Crying” by Ariana, Channing, Jakob, and Nathan.  Mary decides on Kathryn and Russell’s Hip-Hop from last night, and again we see a tape of the original performance.

Mary J. Blige sings her hit “I Am”, flanked by 4 dancers representing mannequins on pedestals.  Nigel chooses one more routine, and it’s the Wade and Amanda Robson number for the Top 20 from the first week.  We find out that Kathryn is in 3rd place after last night’s votes.

Jennifer Lopez is on stage in a giant silver and red shoe, to perform her new song “Louboutins”.  Dancing with her are several girls from this season and past seasons of SYTYCD, with the number choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon.

We are down to Jakob and Russell…one of them is about to be crowned America’s Favorite Dancer.  Cat makes the announcement and the winner is…Russell!  Even though he is in pain, he gets down on his knees to thank God, and then thanks everyone else who helped him get to this moment.  This concludes another exiting season of So You Think You Can Dance.  Good night everybody!
