FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance" wraps up its ninth season on Tuesday (September 18) night with a pair of winners.
Either Cyrus or Chehon will be named America's Favorite Male Dancer and either Tiffany or Eliana will be crowned as America's Favorite Female Dancer.
Last Monday, I sat down with excitable "So You Think You Can Dance" judge Mary Murphy to discuss the season and the Final 4.
Our conversation came before last Tuesday night's performance episode and Nigel Lythgoe's controversial decision to publicly tell Cyrus that he wouldn't be voting for him due to his relative lack of formal proficiency when compared to Chehon.
In the interview, Murphy and I talk extensively about the difference between "favorite" and "best" dancer and she explains her own perspective on what Cyrus has achieved this season.
