Lady Gaga Will Be Happy About the 'So You Think You Can Dance' Finale

Choosing from the four remaining finalists, viewers* selected 19-year-old Melanie Moore as the victor of Season 8 of So You Think You Can Dance last night. It couldn't have hurt Moore's cause that a few weeks ago, she earned the utmost respect of Lady Gaga following her performance of "Total Eclipse of the Heart." "Listen, you are my favorite in this competition," Gaga told her. "And I would hire you tomorrow to dance on my tour, all around the world." [People] *This post has been changed to show it is the audience, not judges, who pick the winner on SYTYCD.
