And the winners... of So You Think You Can Dance... are... Probably More Tired Than Any Of Us Can Imagine! Hooray! They Surely Want To Be Left Alone! Wee! Seriously, stop tweeting at them, Christina Applegate.

We'll get to the results in a bit, but first: I started this season by comparing So You Think You Can Dance to American Idol, and now, I will gleefully contrast the two Fox juggernauts. Every American Idol finale feels like a painful elegy, a disturbing culmination where a frail white dude wins everything and Jennifer Holliday chews up the runner-up's face. It's a bloodletting. Meanwhile, every Sytycd finale feels like a quaint graduation ceremony at an arts academy. The students present themselves and receive funky diplomas from their professors Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, teary-eyed dandy Adam Shankman, your elegant great aunt Debbie Allen, smirking prom queen Tyce Diorio, and the Real Excited Lil C. It's just cute. »
