Well, it has been a roller-coaster of a season on So You Think You Can Dance. There were elimination format changes and some great new ideas, such as having the All-Stars choreograph routines. The talent was fantastic, and there was no question that Amy Yakima, Jasmine Harper, Aaron Turner and DuShaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall deserved to be in the finale.

So why did Amy Yakima and DuShaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall win the title of America's favorite dancers? Let's take a peek at the factors that helped rock the vote.

Personality is a Plus

Fik-Shun oozes charisma. His charm and personality are infectious. His smile lights up the room. Is he the best dancer in the competition? No. Although he has grown every week and come quite far, he lacks the technique and dance background that Aaron possesses. So You Think You Can Dance chooses America's favorite dancer, not necessarily the best dancer. Amy's personality and likability always made her memorable combined with her perfect technique. 
 

Did Aaron and Jasmine Connect?

Aaron Turner and Jasmine Harper may not have connected with fans as much as Amy and Fik-Shun. Both Jasmine and Aaron are excellent dancers, but they lack the charisma that Amy and Fik-shun display. Could this have cost them votes? Since we are picking America's favorite dancers, it definitely could have. It is hard to know for sure.


One Dynamic Duo

Amy and Fik-Shun will go down in So You Think You Can Dance history as one of the "power couples" on the show. Their connection and chemistry are off the charts, no matter what dance style they perform. It is always entertaining to watch them, and I am sure that their pairing contributed to how well they did in the competition. They always bring out the best in each other. 
 

One Not-So-Great Performance

Amy Yakima has been nearly flawless all season. So has Jasmine, with the exception of last week's samba. The routine was awkward and both Aaron and Jasmine had some technical issues. It's possible that just one bad performance, especially in the performance finale, could have negatively impacted voting for Jasmine and Aaron.

Amy Yakima and DuShaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall are the winners of So You Think You Can Dance season 10, and I think that their personalities and insane chemistry have a lot to do with it.
