And the winner is.........

Now that it's gone across the country and won't be a spoiler for anyone in a later time zone, I'm happy to announce this years winner of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, the show that rocks my socks and makes me wish I was 10 again so I could take up dance is........

Denys Drozdyuk


From the official SYTYCD Canada web site:

Denys Drozdyuk is Canada's Favourite Dancer

"After more than one and a half million votes, 25-year-old Denys Drozdyuk, a ballroom dancer from Toronto, was named Canada's Favourite Dancer.

He was rendered speechless, doubling over in shock as host Leah Miller revealed his win on the So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 3 finale on Sunday night. "Thank you very much," he said, bowing in front of an ecstatic audience.

Confetti cannons burst gold and silver flakes on the stage as the dancers lifted Denys high above their arms as Denys' mom wept in the audience.

From his audition in Montreal, Denys brought his versatility and strong work ethic to the competition, making him a contender from the very first show. "You are a great example, an inspiration for a generation of dancers to come," Jean Marc said before the verdict was revealed.

Luther noted his incredible passion. "It comes through the cameras every time you get on that stage," he said.

Denys now carries the title of Canada's Favourite Dancer and has received the prize of $100,000 and a 2010 Mazda2."

Nice to know that my two hours of voting worked. I don't get ''silly'' over a lot of shows and things - well....... OK.......... maybe I do, but I sure did over this one. And it's interesting to note that he was announced as the winner whilst dressed in the costume he wore for his final dance of the night, the Pasodoble, the same dance genre he did in his audition!!

Now the withdrawal will start.

Woohoo, I'm glad your favorite won, Kristie. He seems like a great dancer, but personality wise... Hmmm, he seems to be very reserved.

Nath - but see - that's really part of his appeal *g*. He does seem to be very reserved and stoic, but underneath his humour really is very funny. And I think the language is a tiny bit of a barrier too what with English not being his first language. Plus I get the feeling he's just not that comfortable with the spotlight.

Orannia: Oh you really do have to watch them all!! Sadly....they didn't dance the House number again last night, but they did do some other ones and he was even MORE amazing doing them.
