After weeks of moving and grooving, the winner of season seven of So You Think You Can Dance was announced last night... and it's... drumroll, please... 18-year-old Lauren Froderman from Phoenix, Arizona.
"I cannot even believe how amazing this journey has been!" she said. "I feel so blessed, and am so grateful to my family, friends and fans. Thank you for believing in me and naming me America's Favorite Dancer. This is truly a dream come true. Thank you, America, it was an honor dancing for you!"
Kent Boyd came in as the runner-up and Robert Roldan took third place. The Top 11 returned to perform the judges' favorite routines of the season and one new group number.
And a surprise performer showed up to fill in for injured contestant Alex Wong in in the NappyTab ''Outta Your Mind'' hip-hop routine... who? Ellen Degeneres!
Catch Lauren and the rest of the Top 7 dancers on tour this fall. The tour kicks off September 19 in New Orleans. Go to fox.com/dance for the details.
