After dozens of ankle-straining performances and gut-wrenching routines, So You Think You Can Dance has a new champion.

The competition ultimately boiled down to two women: Sasha Mallory and Melanie Moore. and after America took to the phone lines and internet to cast their votes for their favorite performer, the SYTYCD verdict was in. Who took home the prize?

Melanie Moore erupted into tears when her name was announced, having earned 47 percent of the votes. Stunned and overjoyed with the news, Moore simply said "thank you" when the microphone was given to her, as those were the only words she could really muster up.

Mallory, who was quite the gracious loser in defeat, pulled in 32 percent of the votes, while the third and fourth place competitors -- Marko Germar and Tadd Gadduang -- rounded out the final four.

    I knew Melanie would win. She was absolutely amazing. @delredd - Tadd was amazing and my favorite guy, but all of them finished exactly where they should have. Sasha had a lot of dances fall flat and she's not nearly as strong as Melanie. This season was incredible. There was so much talent and you could see that they were all very close to each other.
