The So You Think You Can Dance 2012 finale for season 9 aired last night and it was fabulous extravaganza of dance performances and musical guests. The most important part of the show, however, was who won SYTYCD 2012 season 9, right? Well, the results certainly came as a surprise to some fans, although all the final four contestants were deserving of the win.

Last night’s SYTYCD 2012 finale for season 9 was a night full of great dance and somewhat less terrific musical performances. The So You Think You Can Dance season 9 Top 20 kicked off the show with a mass group Christopher Scott and Sonya Tayeh dance routine. The judges then had the chance to pick their favorite dances of the season and have them performed again for all of our viewing pleasure.

SYTYCD 2012 season 9 finale viewers were also treated with a look back at all the terrific dancers who unfortunately did not make the Top 20. The favorite spot went to Dragonhouse and they were given the chance to perform on stage for the So You Think You Can Dance 9 audience with guest Byran Gaynor.

The So You Think You Can Dance 2012 Top 4 of the season also got to choose their favorite dances. Eliana Girard chose her “Bang Bang” dance with Alex Wong. Finalist Chehon Wespi-Tschoop chose the Argentine Tango he danced with Anya. Tiffany Maher picked the Mandy Moore dance with Ade Obayomi. Cyrus Spencer chose last week’s dance with Twitch.

Before the SYTYCD 2012 finale winners were announced, viewers also enjoyed a fun hip-hop themed performance from Twitch, Cyrus Spencer, Christopher Scott and Comfort. There was also a performance from Carly Rae Jepsen, which would fall under that “less terrific musical Performances” description I mentioned earlier. To wrap things up, So You Think You Can Dance 2012 finale viewers had a fun routine by Nappytabs featuring the Top 10 dancers and All Stars.

After all that warm-up, we finally got to the main event and who won So You Think You Can Dance 2012 season 9. Cat Deeley reveals the SYTYCD winners are… Eliana Girard and Chehon Wespi-Tschoop! Eliana actually fell to her knees in shock and yelled out, “What just happened?!?” You won SYTYCD 2012 season 9 honey, enjoy it!
