Lauren Froderman!

The 18 year-old from Phoenix was chosen by viewers to win the $250,000 grand prize. Lucky girl!

Did you catch the finale of So You Think You Can Dance last night? It was probably one of the best finales the show has had yet. There were so many awesome performances. They revisited several of the best performances from the season, and had some really cool new ones such as from the the Quest Crew as well as one from a 7-year old tap dancer named Luke Spring.

To top it all off, Ellen Degeneres made a special appearance and did a number with Stephen “Twitch” Boss set to the song “Outta Your Mind” by Lil’ Jon and LMFAO. She actually did quite well and it was really funny. I loved when she did the fake clumsiness and slapped Twitch in the face and then kicked him in stomach. :)

Fox will likely place the finale on the So You Think You Can Dance website in a couple days if you missed it or want to watch it again. is one of my favorite websites ever. They let you watch tons of new shows and movies for free and it’s all legal because they have agreements in place with the big television networks. If you don’t already have an account, I suggest you create one.

One of the best reasons to register at is that you can be notified every time a new episode of The LXD (Legion of Extraordinary Dancers) is available. This brand-new show is about ordinary people who come to discover that they have extraordinary powers allowing them to dance in magnificent ways. The show is fun, and feels like a mixture of So You Think You Can Dance and some sort of random comic book. Each episode really is a ton of fun to watch.

The LXD is a series that is only available on Hulu so if you want to watch it, that’s where you’ll have to go. The episode times vary, but none so far exceed 15 minutes so each show can be watched in easily digestible chunks. I definitely recommend checking it out. One of my favorite episodes so far is Robot Lovestory, which you can also watch below. I watched episodes 1-6 last night and plan to catch up on the rest this weekend. 😀
