'So You Think You Can Dance' Has a Winner!

The results are in, and there's at least one contestant from So You Think You Can Dance who definitely can dance!

After an intense season full of dramatic performances, the battle between the top four dancers left judges wondering if head judge Nigel Lythgoe was right when he predicted it would come down to the two women, Melanie Moore and Sasha Mallory.

If you still haven't caught Thursday night's finale of Fox's hit reality competition, look away now. The top dancer of season 8 is... Melanie Moore! The petite dancer, 19, received 47 percent of the Top 4 vote.

With 32 percent of the vote, Mallory came in second, followed by the two Top Four guys: Germar (third) and Gadduang (fourth). It was the first time in the show's history that the winner and runner-up were both women.

"You two are both exquisite dancers, you have both been amazing," host Cat Deeley told the two finalists before announcing the winner.

But in the end, after more than 11.5 million votes, it was the pixie-ish brunette from Marrietta, Ga., a frontrunner for most of the season, who came out on top.

Watch Melanie and Marko in one of the crowd's favorite dances of the season:
