Brisbane’s 18 year old Ballerina, Talia Fowler, has taken the crown at the end of the the second season of So You Think You Can Dance. 19 year old hip hopper Charlie Bartley was runner up for the $200,000 prize.
The Top 10 will now prepare to tour Australia before Talia will head to the States where she will perform on the finale of the American series of So You Think You Can Dance in front of an expected 20 million people.
Over 1.45 million people tuned in to watch Brisbane’s Talia Fowler announced the winner of So You Think You Can Dance Australia.
TEN’s chief programming officer, David Mott, said: “This season of Dance Australia has had everything our audience wants – superior levels of technical skill, memorable music, breathtaking and often complex dance routines and a bunch of really great contestants.
“Of course along the way, we’ve had all the drama that comes from pitting a group of superb dancers against each other in a competition of this calibre.”
Over 2009, Sunday’s Dance Australia (performance show) regularly won its timeslot in all key buying demographics and total people, attracting an average audience of 1.28 million people.
