Wooo hoooo! I’m so glad she won! I actually met them all about two weeks ago and Melanie was extremely nice and down to earth. I spent like 3 hours with her so she didn’t fake it. The other two male dancers pictured with her were really stuck up.
Sasha was cool as well but Melanie was just really nice. I’m so glad she won! She’s an amazing dancer!
Personally, I think she deserved it.

OMG YES MELANIE WON :D \o/ They all a great dancers really but boy Melanie was the real winner ever since her audition.. My God the way she dance is breathtaking and her technique and the way she moves are impeccable.

She was obviously great in her style…which she got almost every week. No wonder the judges praised her every chance they got without critique. Her hip hops were a struggle to watch as were her ballroom dances. So basically she won So you think you can dance contemporary/jazz -_- She was a great soloist though.

she is so genuine and talented. i watch faithfully at home every week and i just keep my eyes on her regardless if shes onstage or off. her joy just jumps through my tv screen.
she not only makes me want to be a better dancer but a better person!
shes. PERFECT.
i’m SO glad she won. well deserved. amazing. amazing. can’t say that enough. honestly!

Tad & Sasha were my faves, but Mel was cool too.

# 6

YESSS! Well deserved! I can’t wait to see what she does next after the SYTYCD tour :)

# 7

i loved Melanie in contemporary and jazz, but i believe this show should be about acknowledging the dancer with the most dimensions and devotion and this season for me it was Jess Leprotto… judges were wrong so many times this s (Jess, Jordan, Missy..)

@lizz:

You mean Tadd Gaduang and Marko Germar? In what way are they stuck up? They’re Filipinos you know its a cultural thing. Filipino guys are reserve and conservative. No matter how they gave the impression of being playful and open in reality they’re just so quite and refine. They’re still friendly though don’t take it personally though

@darla:
So they have the right to give off a stuck up appearance because they’re Filipino’s?
I know many Filipino’s who are not quiet and reserved. I mean, just accept the fact that these guys just seemed that way. If anything, they were the opposite of shy.
I do not take it personal at all. It affects me in no way. I was just expressing what I observed.

Lady Gaga said she would hire her any day when she was guest judge. Maybe she will?

…I think everyone wanted her to win, and knew she would.

I watched the show last night, and those guys seem very sweet and charming. One shouldn’t judge so fast just based that they didn’t stop by to talk to you.

MARKO WAS MY FAV AND SOOO HOT
iM GLAD MELANIE WON, I WAS HOPING IT WAS BETWEEN MELANIE AND MARKO……

i knew she was going to win!

i knew she was going to win!
