Last night in the eleventh season finale of Fox’s long-running competition, fan favorite Ricky Ubeda took home the title of ‘America’s Favorite Dancer.’

In a night filled with the best dances of the season, judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy were on hand as well as guest judges Debbie Allen, Tara Lapinski, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Adam Shankman. 

One of the favorite numbers of the night was between Ubeda and third runner up, Zach Everhart. Check it out!

I was on the red carpet last night and talked to Ubeda, Everhart , finalist Jessica Richens and runner-up Valerie Rockey as well as Murphy, Shankman and Allen. Check them out over at TheBacklot.com.

Next up for Ubeda and the rest of the Top 10 is the “So You Think You Can Dance” Tour, which kicks off October 1st in New Orleans. For more details on dates and tickets, visit the website.

“So You Think You Can Dance” is done for this season and while a 12th season hasn’t been announced, fingers crossed we’ll see the gang back next summer.
