But who of the quartet triumphed over the competition to win SYTYCD season 13: Leon "Kida" Burns, J.T. Church, Emma Hellenkamp, or Tate McRae? Kida was ultimately named the winner, and at 14 years old, she is the youngest individual to hold the title of America's Favorite Dancer.
Burns and Church were both runners-up; they are both 17 years old. Hellenkamp and McRae were eliminated in the semi-finals.
Kida is from Chico, California, while Burns and Church are from Las Vegas, Nevada. Hellenkamp is from Melbourne, Australia, while McRae is from Atlanta, Georgia.
All four dancers were selected by fan vote from among twenty-four candidates during season thirteen of America's Got Talent. The judges used their one-in-three chance to select another dancer after missing their initial choice. They chose Kida because they believed she had what it took to be a successful dance artist.
Before auditioning for AGT, Kida had been dancing since she was three years old. At ten years old, she began teaching herself how to skateboard so she could perform better on stage. She also learned how to play guitar so she could soundtrack her performances.
Froderman, Lauren Lauren Froderman is the winner of Season 7 of SYTYCD 2010. Lauren Froderman was crowned the seventh season winner of "So You Think You Can Dance" on Thursday. In the final, Kent Boyd finished second. Robert Roldan finished third.
Lauren received $100,000 from FOX and a recording contract with Hollywood Records as well as a spot in SYTYCD's all-expenses-paid trip to New York City. She also won a car from Fox Broadcasting Company.
Before winning SYTYCD, Lauren was a dental assistant living in California. She says she decided to try out for SYTYCD because she wanted to pursue a career in dancing instead of dentistry. She had no idea it would become such a huge success or that millions of people would watch her compete every week.
Lauren plans to use some of the money she has earned to go to school to get her degree in medical imaging. She also says she wants to travel around the world if she can afford it.
In other news, former champion Mandy Moore canceled her scheduled appearance on this year's SYTYCD after being diagnosed with pemphigus, a rare disease that causes the skin to blister and peel.
