You go, girl!

Lauren Froderman became the third women to win 'So You Think You Can Dance,' which was all the more incredible given how heavily season 7 favored the men.

TV Squad was on scene for the finale, where we talked to a jubilant Froderman (after a quick costume change), runner-up Kenty Boyd and the judges, who insist they weren't in the least surprised that she walked away with the title.

"The only thing that surprised me is that girls got it right," Adam Shankman told us. "Young women decided to vote for a role model instead of a cute boy."

And then, we finally learned who the actual winner of the show was. It was down to Kent and Lauren. Who would take home the prize? The answer is ...

Lauren Gets Pretty Naked on 'So You Think You Can Dance'We're down to the final three on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox). And excessive nudity might be the key to victory here.

[Spoiler alert.]

... Oh, we're just kidding. We're sure that this show is decided on the merits of the individual dancers. But still, Lauren does a fairly sexy Cha Cha routine with Pasha. And the judges seem to approve. But is it because Lauren's dancing is awesome, or because she's barely wearing any clothes?

"It looked to me like it was damn near perfect," judge Nigel Lythgoe said.

Hmm. Was that a reaction to the performance itself, or a reaction to how Lauren looked while doing it?

'So You Think You Can Dance' Finale Predictions: Who Will Win? Who Should Win?

by Sharon Knolle, posted Aug 10th 2010 4:00PM

As we count down to this week's season finale of 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed. and Thu., 8PM ET on Fox), the race comes down to two of the three finalists: Sexy but strong Lauren Froderman from Phoenix and small-town wunderkind Kent Boyd from Wapokoneta, Ohio.

California boy Robert Roldan will also compete in the finale, but although we and the judges love him, he's been in the bottom three so often that we're almost as shocked as he was that he made it to the finale.

So, who will it be: Lovely Lauren or kooky Kent? We make the argument for who will win and who should win.

Adam Shankman Makes a Gay Marriage Proposal to Nigel Lythgoe (VIDEO)

Adam Shankman Makes a Gay Marriage Proposal to Nigel LythgoeWell, today is the day. Today is the day that Proposition 8 was legally overturned. In case you haven't been paying attention, Proposition 8 was an amendment that forbade gay couples from getting married in the state of California. And now, it's gone.

In order to celebrate this event, 'So You Think You Can Dance' judge Adam Shankman decided to propose to his fellow judge Nigel Lythgoe. Oh, nice! Gutsy! But will Adam's wedding pitch actually work out?

We wouldn't call 'So You Think You Can Dance' a "gay" show (not that it would matter if it was). ... But it is, at least, fairly flamboyant. On the current episode (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox), the judges got pretty hot and bothered following Lauren's sexy performance with fellow dancer Pasha. "My eyes steamed up," Nigel said, after witnessing their routine. He seemed so aroused that he confessed to wanting to tango with male partner Pasha: "My god! I wanted to dance with you!"

Then, Adam decided to jokingly segue from that remark, by asking Nigel to join him in a gay wedding. "I would like to ... ask my colleague and friend Nigel Lythgoe to marry me."

The 'So You Think You Can Dance' Judges Make Their Final Decision (VIDEO)

The 'So You Think You Can Dance' Judges Make Their Final DecisionThis is it! This is the last week that the judges can eliminate contestants on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 9PM ET on Fox). So really, this is the time for the judges' final decision. (And yes, we realize that we already said that in the headline. Just wanted to drive that point home, in case you weren't paying attention.)

[Spoiler alert.]

Tonight's episode involved the elimination of two contestants -- which has never happened before. Billy, Jose, and Lauren were potentially about to be kicked off. No! Not Lauren! She's the only girl left on this show!

In the end, the formerly injured Billy was kicked off, and Jose as well. Lauren was saved. And now we're down to four contestants. Hopefully, the judges have made the right decisions up to this point. Because after this, they don't get to have a say. All the voting for the final contestants will be done by you, the viewers. So do a good job, guys.

'American Idol' on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (VIDEO)

'American Idol' on 'So You Think You Can Dance'We had an exciting live show tonight on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox). Due to the odd results of last week's show, not one, but two dancers were up for elimination on this week's episode. But that all paled next to judge Nigel Lythgoe's weird slip of the tongue.

[Spoiler alert.]

Nigel may be returning as the executive producer on the upcoming season of 'American Idol.' And even after watching Lauren and Allyson's pretty stunning performance, he still seemed pretty distracted by the thought of that. When host Cat Deeley asked him for his reaction to Lauren's dance, Nigel seemed a little confused. He praised Lauren, and agreed that her routine was "powerful," but then said: "This is the first time we've ever seen [anything like] it on 'American Idol.'" Whoops! Wrong show, Nigel! Mr. Lythgoe then swiftly tried to recover.

By the way, rumor has it that if Nigel takes over as producer on 'Idol,' he will eliminate all of the current judges, and will replace them. Two of the possible replacements are -- Elton John and Justin Timberlake. What do you folks think? Does this sound like a good idea to you?
