I loved Jeanette. This season dulled when she and Brandon were de-coupled, and it died when she left.

There isn't a show on TV right now that crowns the "best" technical dancer. I'd love for SYTYCD to have two prizes- favorite dancer (picked by the people) and best dancer (picked by the judges). Jeanine had certainly been rocking the solos (esp. the Citizen Cope one and the one from last night) lately. I think she was a good mix, though I was a Brandon fan for technical ability. One thing that REALLY pissed me off though was that Yahoo news said who won in the TITLE of their article before it ever even aired on the west coast. I went to check my email and lo-and-behold it announced it right there. That should be banned!

Jeanine is a most deserving winner. And, those anonymous comments...well, they deserve to be ignored. Seriously.

Jeanine was my favorite from the top 20 on, but I would have been content with Brandon or Kayla winning also. I was generally pleased with the dances the judges chose to have re-performed. Season six starts in about a month!

I'm very happy Jeanine won- her solo wednesday night was AH-MAY-ZING! What's up with the sore losers on here? It's America's Favorite Dancer- there's no right or wrong- the majority of the votes gets the title. Happy for Jeanine and the entire top 20 for that matter! Just getting to perform on the SYTYCD stage is an accomplishment in itself.

My favorites were Jeanette, Brandon, Jason and Melissa. I am torn between Melissa and Kayla for the top four spot, both were very beautiful and talented dancers. For me personally, Jeanine never seemed to carry off the light, floating, gracefulness needed on some of the dances; she came across heavy, which worked great when she was doing the hip hop/modern routines, but didn't lend itself to waltz or latin dancing. I honestly just thought Brandon was the best dancer overall. I don't think people always vote for the best dancer - it's definitely also a likeability factor otherwise Evan would not have made it to the top 4.

Although I like Jeanine, I was really hoping that Brandon would win, or at least Kayla. I am happy that it was not Evan. Was it just me, or did Cat look like she was crying when she announced that Evan was in third place?

Apparently some people who commented don't watch the show because the winner is not crowned the 'best' dancer, they're crowned 'favorite' dancer! I thought Jeanine was fantastic & very deserving of the win!!!

i 1/2 agree with this. i knew that it was going to be one of the girls based on the judges feedback all season, but i kind of thought that it was going to be kayla. regardless i'm thrilled with the outcome and i hope that she has a successful dance career in the future.

Wish that Janette would have won!! She was the bets. Then my second would have been Brandon. I guess I never really saw Jeanine as a contender for the title.

:oy: Happsmjc...more like reason #978,000,000 why anon comments are lame. I'm glad Jeanine won. Jeanette should've lasted longer. And Ade should've been the #2 guy...I think Evan got by on his popularity more than his actual talent. Ade was a much better dancer.

Jeanine (and Brandon and Kayla would have as well IMO) totally deserved it! I am such a sap and teared up during her acceptance speech. I really enjoyed seeing the "best of" dances tonight. I just wish that Melissa and Ade had gotten a chance to do another dance besides the "cancer dance". P.S. Please Sugar Inc., get rid of anonymous comments!

Brandon should have won. Whoever voted for Jeanine appearantly do not care that someone with personality and talent should have won. Nice going America!

i thought all of the top four are fabulous dancers. i was very disappointed that some people went home when they did, but i think jeanine is a great dancer and while i was actually rooting for evan, jeanine was not undeserving of the title.

I totally agree with Jeanine's win. What especially solidified it for me was her solo from a couple weeks back to Citizen Cope's "Let The Drummer Kick". Amazing.

First off, I love, love, love this show! I definitely agree that Janette went home too soon, but I think of the 4 finalists, Jeanine was definitely deserving of the win. I think that some of the commenters above need to take a step back and realize what amazing things each of them contributed to the show and the fact that it is America's FAVORITE dancer, not America's BEST dancer. Jeanine peaked at the right time and was amazing!

Also, I think they "advertised" Jeanine the least out of the top four. Brandon and Evan were both shown a lot in the Vegas week episodes and Kayla was highlighted all season. And, it hasn't been that long since a female won. :shrug:

I am so happy Jeanine won. The judges were right, she peaked at the proper time! I loved that dance with Jason; I hope they bring Travis back to choreograph again next year.

jeanine is not fat, i'm glad her body is not stick thin. (melissas body is insane btw those damn abs!) i wish that janette was in the top 4 though. she was my season fav. i'm just glad evan didn't win. he's a nice guy, rocks his style, but not an all around fav like a lot of others were.
