THE WINNER IS Melanie Moore!
2nd Placer: Sasha Mallory
3rd Placer: Marko Gemar
4th Placer: Tadd Gadduang
America listened to executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe who has been rooting for a female winner since the start of “So You Think You Can Dance” season 8.
Lythgoe has been very vocal on Thursday during the final 4 performance night of the show that he is seeing a girl would win the title dismissing the chances of the final 2 guys, Marko and Tadd.
During the final results show earlier today (Manila time), Lythgoe apologized for Fil-Ams Marko and Tadd for “pushing them under the bus” yesterday. The apology, however, is rendered useless as America listened to him and voted for the final two girls with Melanie Moore getting 47% while Sasha Mallory receiving 32%.
Anyway, congratulations to Marko Germar and Tadd Gadduang for beating all the guys by making it to the final 4 of the dance competition! I hope ABS-CBN will invite them to grace ASAP Rocks or other shows someday.

Just a quick trivia: A Filipino almost won the SYTYCD title in season 1 when Melody Lacayanga finished second.
