So You Think You Can Dance Champions Crowned

Posted by on September 19, 2012 at 6:11 AM EST

Eliana Girard and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp were named joint winners of Fox’ reality hoofing contest So You Think You Can Dance during a live finale broadcast this week.

Eliana, who’s 21 and from West Palm Beach, Florida, said: “No-one realises how hard it is until you do it. It meant everything to win the show.”

Her victory was announced by British host Cat Deeley.

For his part, Chehon, a 23-year-old Swiss ballet dancer from Zurich, said: “I had no idea how far this journey would take me – I just thought I’d give it a shot. I really felt like I kept growing week to week.”

The victors were crowned based on votes from viewers after last Tuesday’s evening’s final performance show featuring the top four dancers. Each performed five times for judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest Rob Marshall.

The top four – Eliana and Chehon along with Cyrus Spencer and Tiffany Maher, each danced with an all-star partner and both opposite-sex fellow competitors. They also performed solos and danced a joint routine all together.

Eliana and Chehon share over $200,000 prize money and get a cover appearance on Dance Spirit magazine.
