So You Can You Can Dance has crowned Melanie Moore the season eight champion.

Moore beat out second-place contestant Sasha Mallory; Marko Germar, who came in third; and fourth-place finisher Tadd Guadduang to take the crown in Fox’s dancing competition on Thursday night.

After the announcement was made, SYTYCD fans took to Twitter to express their widely differing opinions, with many happy about Moore’s win and still others arguing that one of the other finalists should have won.
