Melanie Moore, the Marietta, Georgia girl who everyone pegged to win So You Think You Can Dancefrom the beginning, nabbed the title from Sasha Mallory, a force in her own right.

If you've been watching this season, you'll remember Melanie was the dancer who brought Lady Gaga to tears and even managed a job offer from the mama monster. She managed to keep her wits and wow the finale guest-judge Katie Holmes with her technique.

You could feel the emotion in Melanie Moore as she was crowned the dance champ and she told Us Weekly after the show, "I was ready to take second very graciously!"

She added, "In my head I really thought Sasha was going to win, just because she has improved so much over the competition and she's an inspiration to me...When [Cat Deeley] called my name I lost it, I just started crying!"

Just think back to her performance when Gaga judged -- that leap was effortless! What do you think...

Do you think America and So You Think You Can Dance got it right with Melanie Moore?
