On Thursday, we find out the winner of So You Think You Can Dance, Season 7 (Fox, 8 p.m. ET). Overall, talent (not to mention passion and personality) has been in plentiful supply among its contestants. Unfortunately, so have injuries. The most widely-predicted winner, Alex Wong, had to bow out of the competition on July 8, after he tore his Achilles tendon.
The effervescent Boyd has never been in the bottom three, and he's been a judges' darling from the beginning. One complaint, made often by judge Mia Michaels, was that at times he comes off as a little too animated. But he's the sort of energetic dancer that takes your breath away on a Broadway stage. If he wins, it won't be surprising.
The first several weeks of the season saw the elimination of one female dancer after the other. It got to the point where you began to wonder if any dancer lacking a Y chromosome would make it to the end. But the coolly professional Froderman has not only survived, she's thrived—taking on a different persona from one week to the next, and emanating a much different vibe each time. Boyd will probably edge her out, but watching Froderman win would be satisfying, too.
With his good looks and his dynamic athleticism, Roldan has charmed a lot of viewers. Not enough, though, to spare him from the bottom three on several results show nights. Maybe because of that, he's the dancer who seems most surprised and thrilled to be in the final three. He's the underdog here, but a Roldan upset would be sweet to see.
