Our favorite guest blogger Lenni G wraps up the season:
Now people, this was a FINALE!!!!
It had a huge opening featuring the top contestants and All Stars. Even injured Alex Wong was back, albeit in a chair.
It had seven judges - Nigel, Mia, Adam, Tyce Diorio, Stacey Tookey, Kenny Ortega AND, fresh off the Hot Tamale Train, Mary Murphy.
It had 10 repeats of the judges' favorite routines from this year. Can you believe Lauren and Kent did two more dances and Robert did three after having done 5 apiece the night before? Thought it was really coolio that Mia picked the AdeChike and Comfort "NappyTabs" hip-hop number that featured Alicia Keys' "Fallin'."
It had highlights of National Dance Day including the Fabulous Dolphins, not Miami but the Sea World variety.
AND, it had a very special surprise guest. Ellen DeGeneres ("LN" as she's known in the dance community) dropped by to substitute for Alex, dancing the awesome "NappyTabs" hip-hop routine with tWitch. OMG! LHM! This is definitely a permanent keep on my DVR.
And, AND, we had the results. Robert was the first to go, leaving Lauren and Kent as the final two. Both of these kids were deserving of the title but it was LAUREN taking home the ultimate prize. YES! NICE! You go girl!
Season 7 totally rocked and probably set a standard that will be hard to beat. Looking forward to number 8, the return of Alex Wong, more great choreography from "NappyTabs" and, hopefully, another group of really good guy and girl dancers. Stay tuned!
