So You Think You Can Dance Australia – And The Winner Is…..
Michael Dameski has won the latest series of So You Think You Can Dance Australia. The 18 year old from Yagoona, Sydney wins $100,000. He also has a choice of one of three dance career opportunities including an international season with Burn The Floor created and choreographed by SYTYCD judge Jason Gilkison or being in a contemporary ballet Body Torque with the Australian Ballet. There was also an opportunity to do some classes with a contemporary dance company from Berlin.
Lauren Seymour was also in the final two with Jay and Renelle the first two eliminated.
At the beginning of the show before voting closed Lauren and Michael were lucky enough to do a contemporary dance whilst Renelle and Jay had a ballroom routine. Later the girls danced together as did the guys.
One of the highlights of the finale was judge Aaron Cash tap dancing for the first time in 19 years with his Tap Dog dance mates. They looked like they were having a lot of fun.
There was also a group dance to a medley of Paula Abdul’s greatest hits and she looks like she has not aged a bit. A special mention should go to the tutu like dress she was wearing. Also Paula Abdul in the Daily Telegraph gave Kylie Minogue a tickle up about not paying dances for her video
The finale was entertaining and very high end television. Will it come back next year? Highly unlikely which is a pity but the viewers were not there.
