Canada has voted, and either ALLIE, MILES, NATALLI or NICO will be crowned Canada’s first-ever Favourite Dancer in the jam-packed two-hour grand finale of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA at a special day and time, this Sunday, December 7 at 9 p.m. ET (visit ctv.ca to confirm local broadcast times), immediately following the season finale of THE AMAZING RACE. Last night, Canada voted for the very last time after the Top 4 took to the stage, performing a showdown of seven dance numbers, including a Top 4 group number choreographed by SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA recent Guest Judge Dan Karaty. Peaking at 1.8 million viewers, last night’s final performance episode achieved a series high average of 1.47 million viewers to become the No.1 television program of the night in total audience and in all key demos.
The SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA phenomenon began last April with the first ever audition city stop in Vancouver and continued across the country with more than 2,500 auditions. It all culminates this Sunday when one of the Top 4 becomes Canada’s Favourite Dancer. Will it be ALLIE Bertram, an 18-year-old a Ballet dancer from Calgary; MILES Faber, a 21-year-old Popper and Boogaloo dancer from Calgary; NATALLI Reznik, a 29-year-old Hip-Hop and Latin dancer from Toronto; or NICO Archambault, a 24-year-old Contemporary and Hip-Hop dancer from Montréal?
The jam-packed finale on Sunday will feature more than 15 performances from not only the Top 4, but the Top 20 dancers as well, who return to the stage to perform two all-new group numbers. Alternate judge Luther Brown creates a hard-hitting, group hip-hop routine to “Get Up” by 50 Cent, while Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin take viewers back to the early 60s for a Dirty Dancing inspired number performed to “Do You Love Me” by The Contours.
The finale will also feature memorable couple routines choreographed by Blake McGrath, Luther Brown, Paul Becker, Sean Cheesman, Melissa Williams, Eric Caty, and Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin. Viewers will also see a few of the season’s favourite group routines including the Top 10 contemporary number choreographed by Mia Michaels and Jean Marc Genereux’s emotional Top 16 Viennese Waltz. Video recaps will remind viewers how far the Top 4 have come since their SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA auditions last spring.
Sitting behind a super-sized judge’s desk as the first-ever SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA winner is named are familiar faces Luther Brown, Blake McGrath, Rex Harrington, Mary Murphy and Mia Michaels along with Tré Armstrong and Jean Marc Genereux.
