October 26th, 2009
Tara-Jean Popowich was crowned the winner of So You Think You Can Dance Canada‘s second season. The dancer from Lethbridge, Alberta came away with top honours and a cheque for $100,000.
You can’t blame her for being a little tongue-tied when Tim met her moments after winning the show.
“It’s been crazy. I can’t speak properly now ’cause I’m shaking.”
She did, however, show Tim her victory dance. According to Tara-Jean, her passion was what helped her to win.
“I always dance with my heart and I always leave my soul on the stage and I really hope Canada saw that and obviously they did, so, I appreciate it so much.”
At times, the 20 year old dancer couldn’t believe some of the judges’ praise.
“Just to hear them say I’m a star. I’m like, what? I’m a dancer, not a star. So just to hear them say that, it felt so good.”
The judges however, had complete confidence in Tara-Jean.
Blake McGrath said, “Seeing Tara-Jean win was completely incredible, the excitement, the energy that we get, ’cause we have no idea who wins.”
Added Jean-Marc Généreux, “She got me every week.”
Tre Armstrong also said she was happy that the winner wasn’t a guy this time around.
“I’m just gonna say, lord have mercy I’m so glad a girl won. No disrespect but I was rooting for a girl and I love our top four. Didn’t matter who won, but I’m so glad Tara-Jean go it, she deserved it.”
The judges also took some time to reflect on who had the steamiest kiss.
Blake thought it was him and Jean-Marc! “We did, stop it! Stop it!”
They also reminisced about the sexiest costumes on the show.
Jean-Marc felt it was Kim.
“Kim, Kim, who whoa, you can’t go further than that, that was the minimum.”
And everyone agreed about who was the most emotional judge.
Blake McGrath: “Jean Marc, obviously, he’s a crybaby, I always have to throw him boxes of tissues and stuff.”
Jean-Marc: “What are you talking about! I’m sensitive alright? And I’m not afraid to show it and I wear it on my sleeve.”Tweet
