I think the top two people were the top two the entire season. It came down to the Krumper Russell and the Contemporary dancer Jakob. Both were excellent, Russell grew over the course of the season, the judges claim they saw something special in him in auditions. Jakob was compared to dancer Joel Grey and called brilliant and one of the best to ever grace the "So You Think You Can Dance" stage. Kathryn was the top female; she impressed me the whole season with her versatility and how quickly she adapted to so many styles outside of her comfort zone.
The final night of performances proved that the top three deserved to be the top three. Every number that each of these three performed in had an extra something.
