So You Think You Can Dance Winner of Season 8 Is Melanie

Do You Agree With the Winner of So You Think You Can Dance?

So You Think You Can Dance season eight has a winner! Melanie is taking home the honors after last night's final round of performances against the others in the top four. Like Nigel predicted, a girl won, and her fellow female Sasha came in second, followed by Marko and Tadd in third and fourth place.

Melanie has proved versatile and impressed lots of folks all season long — I called Melanie as one of my early favorites, and the judges have been favoring her as well. This win is no surprise to me, but were you rooting for someone else, or are you happy that Melanie is the season eight winner?

The competitition aspect of this season was nonexistant. We all knew that Melanie would win, especially considering how much the judges raved about her Every. Single. Week. That aspect of the season made it pretty boring for me but there were some really good and really fun dances this year.

I was hoping Sasha would have pulled it out. It just felt like they were pushing Melanie down our throats the entire season. It was obvious she was the one they wanted to win. It would have been nice to see her dance more styles out of her specialty. I think they will both have amazing careers and, except for the celebrity judges, I really enjoyed this season.

I would have been happy if either Sasha or Melanie won. But I'm glad Melanie won. Also, I think the finale was great this season. They finally figured out all the kinks. Check out what else I think: http://rantsofacrazyperson.wordpress.com/2011/08/11/so-you-think-you-can-dance-and-the-winner-is/
