Talk Show Host and So You Think You Can Dance fan Ellen DeGeneres celebrated her birthday last week, and Late Night Host Jimmy Kimmel surprised her with a performance from seven So You Think You Can Dance alumni! Season 8’s Top 2 Melanie Moore and Sasha Mallory, Season 7’s Alex Wong, All-Stars and Season 4 finalists tWitch Boss and Comfort Fedoke, and All-Stars and Season 2 finalists Allison Holker and Ivan Koumaev sprung from seats in The Ellen Show audience to surprise her with a performance to LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It.”
America’s Favorite Dancer, Melanie Moore, danced away with the Season 8 title, $250,000, she’s on Gatorade.com and in the new G Series FIT print campaign, and now she graces the cover of Dance Spirit magazine’s November issue.
On Saturday night, America’s Favorite Dancer, Melanie Moore, returned to her hometown of Marietta, GA where she was met by family, friends, and fans upon her arrival.
The morning after Melanie Moore was crowned America’s Favorite Dancer, the Contemporary dancer from Marietta, GA hopped on the phone for a press call where she talked about her new title, being a front-runner, her partnership with Marko Germar, and more.
The dancers have undergone a grueling schedule for the past several months. What does Melanie plan to do between now and tour rehearsals? “I have 10 days off and I was planning on being at my studio and taking classes. That’s one thing about me—I can never sit still for that long. My boyfriend Mitchell is moving back up to Athens to go to the University of Georgia. He’s been out here supporting me throughout the competition, so I’m going to help him move in and spend some time with him. I’m ready to step out of the spotlight for just a couple minutes at least.”
The eighth season of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE came to an exciting conclusion tonight as Melanie Moore, 19, a Contemporary dancer from Marietta, GA, was named America’s Favorite Dancer and awarded a cash prize of $250,000. She will be featured on the cover of Dance Spirit magazine, and will be recognized as a Gatorade athlete on gatorade.com and in the new G Series FIT print campaign.
