Canada has spoken loud and clear: Tara-Jean Popowich, 20, a contemporary dancer from Lethbridge, Alberta, took home the title of Canada's Best Dancer at last night's nerve-wracking finale of 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada.' Popowich received the majority of close to 3 million votes, phoned in from across the country.

As Canada's Favourite Dancer, Popowich won $100,000 and the keys to a 2010 Mazda 3 Sport. She plans to use the prize money to pay off the rest of her mother's mortgage and help pay for her brother's education. Fellow Top 4 finalist Vincent Desjardins, 20, a ballroom dancer from Trois-Rivières, Quebec, was declared the runner-up and also received the keys to his very own Mazda.

Popowich and Desjardins, along with fellow Top 4 finalists Everett Smith, 25, a tap dancer from Glen Morris, Ontario, and Jayme Rae Dailey, 21, a contemporary dancer from Montreal, took to the stage during the two-hour live extravaganza broadcast on CTV.

Q&A: 'So You Think You Can Dance' Judge Mary Murphy

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 20th 2009 11:58PM
'So You Think You Can Dance' judge Mary Murphy is a dichotomy, so lovable for her various mannerisms and at the same time an irritant to many. The 'SYTYCD' audience (both Canadian and American) seems to be split 50-50 on her – in chat rooms and on message boards you'll see everything from "I love you, Mary!" to "Shut her up, please!"

Her loud laugh and continual screams of joy have struck a chord with viewers, and most people know her strictly on that basis. They aren't necessarily aware of her extensive ballroom dancing background, or her incredible passion for dance. Fans in Canada have certainly expressed their love for her – she appeared twice as a guest judge on 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada', usually to rapturous applause – and went on tour with the Top 10 dancers from 'SYTYCD.'

Now, as 'SYTYCDC' wraps up its second blockbuster season, AOLTV sat down to talk with Murphy about the difference between American and Canadian dancers, what makes a winner, and where her gregarious laughter comes from.
