so you think you can dance season 9 finale 'So You Think You Can Dance' winners: Eliana Gerard and Chehon Wespi TschoppIt all comes down to this! “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 9 aired its two-hour live finale on Tuesday night — complete with a Carly Rae Jepsen performance — and for the first time ever, two winners were crowned. This season was certainly an interesting one, given its new format without a results show, and because of the new rule about having a male and a female winner.

The female winner is Eliana Gerard. A ballet dancer from Florida, 21-year-old Gerard was Nigel Lythgoe’s favorite female dancer this season, and she’s already been asked to join Desmond Richardson’s company after the show. She beat out Jazz dancer Tiffany Maher, also from Florida, to take the cash prize.

The male winner is Chehon Wespi-Tschopp, whose expertise is also ballet. When asked to showcase a specific piece from the season, Chehon chose to revisit his Argentine Tango with Anya. He beat Cyrus Spencer, who was certainly a fan favorite this season with his unique, surprising style of dance.
