Despite lacking experience in some dances and his last minute injury, the Krumper got the highest total of votes from audience and the judges.
Bruised but not beaten, Russell Ferguson took the crown on this season's "So You Think You Can Dance". He is the 20-year-old Krumper who has been the judges and audience's favorite throughout the season although he has little formal education in dancing and has little experience in the type of dances required during the competition.
Interestingly, Russell was injured during the finale on Wednesday, December 16 within the first 45 minutes. He broke his ankle after a routine and was crying. Ryan Di Lello had to help him to get on the stage to hear the result where Ryan was announced as the dancer who finished sixth.
More results were read out, Ryan's wife Ashleigh finished fifth, Ellenore finished fourth, Kathryn finished third and Jakob became the runner-up. In between the announcements, there were performances by Leona Lewis who sang the "Avatar" theme, Adam Lambert who performed "Whataya Want From Me" and Jennifer Lopez who belted out "Loubutins".
