Can you believe the season is already over? This summer has just flown by so incredibly quickly, it's crazy. But, yes, everything must come to an end eventually, and tonight was the crowning of season eight's America's Favorite Dancer.
It should come as absolutely no surprise whatsoever that the winner is none other than... MELANIE!
Do you know, I've had the top three as my top three from the very start of the competition? I'm not making this up. Following Melanie were Sasha, Marko and Tadd, in that order. And apparently, Melanie and Sasha's votes combined to over 70% of the total votes, which is pretty crazy. The poor guys didn't stand a chance!
Are you satisfied with who won, or do you wish it was someone else?
