So You Think You Can Dance Winners: Our Favorite DanceSep 19, 2012 @ 10:47 am
The So You Think You Can Dance? Season 9 finale aired last night and the winners are… Chehon Wespi-Tschopp and Eliana Girard! Their classical ballet training—he at the Royal Ballet School and she at Alvin Ailey and Cirque du Soleil—shot them ahead of all the pop-and-lockers and hip-hoppers throughout the competition to the number one spots, chosen by you, America. “I think it’s a triumph for the show, and I think it’s a triumph of a celebration of ballet,” choreographer Mary Murphy said of the twinkle-toed pair after their final dance (watch it above!). And if you’re looking for a few more beats per minute, Carly Rae Jepsen premiered her new song “This Kiss” during the show. (It’s catchy! Of course it is, IT’S CARLY.) Congrats to Chehon and Eliana!
