So You Think You Can Dance finale: Who won, Alexis or Keaton?

So You Think You Can DanceWho won So You Think You Can Dance season 17? Tonight, the competition was between Keaton Kermode and Alexis Warr.

From the start here, we should note that this sort of thing is almost impossible for the common viewer to judge. The majority of people out there do not have some massive understanding of dance technique. Instead, the biggest thing that we can draw from as a voter is just who entertained us or moved us. This show is all about the connections you make as a viewer and we’ve seen that time and time again.

Given that there are just two contestants left, each one of them got their opportunity to shine. There are multiple performances and opportunities to get to know their personalities better.

So who ended up emerging from the top, and getting the title and all that entails? After SO many dances and some memorable creatives, the winner for the season was … Alexis! She is the first woman to ever win with ballroom as a primary specialty, and it’s kind of crazy to think that’s never happened. Just think for a moment about how many contestants from this show have gone on to be pros on Dancing with the Stars? Two of them in Witney Carson and Lindsay Arnold are relative mainstays, and neither one of them won their season.

Regardless of what the future holds for the dance competition, we do feel pretty darn satisfied coming out of what we had tonight. After all, it was quite nice to have a real celebration of dance and so many different styles shown off in a brief period of time. It’s just (still) a shame more people aren’t tuning in.
