Nice job, Russell.

Still love you best, Jakob. And since you are Jeanine Mason's childhood friend, I bet she was hoping you'd win this season too.

Jakob Karr was robbed from winning “So You Think You Can Dance” season six. But I’m still happy.

Russell Ferguson is from Boston and is now the first krumper to win SYTYCD. His talent has progressed throughout the season and he kept a positive attitude through multiple unexpected partner changes and even an injury himself on finale night.

And he needs this more than Jakob does. Being America’s Favorite Dancer is just a feather in the cap of the best dancer the show has ever seen. I hope Jakob takes Nigel Lythgoe’s advice and joins a company. He WILL be an amazing soloist.

So here is the official season 6 ranking:

1. Russell Ferguson, 20, Boston

2. Jakob Karr, 19, Windermere, Fla. (Hey, that’s Tiger Woods country! Wonder if they are neighbors…)

3. Kathryn McCormick, 19, Augusta, Ga.

4. Ellenore Scott, Santa Cruz, Calif.

5. Ashleigh Di Lello, 26, Orem, Utah

6. Ryan Di Lello, 28, Orem, Utah

See stories below for more on the two-hour finale. For the record, I’m ranking the performances as Mary J. Blige then Leona Lewis, Adam Lambert and Jennifer Lopez.
