Tap dancer Matt Flint was crowned the winner of So You Think You Can Dance UK yesterday. According to the BBC, the 29-year old “battled it out” against fellow finalists Katie Love and jazz dancers Luke Jackson and Kirsty Swain, before being voted the UK’s “Favorite Dancer.”
Can you imagine a 29 year old tap dancer winning SYTYCD US? Me neither.
Flint won £50,000 and an invitation to appear on the US version of the show. See ya soon, Matt!
It was “the best thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Flint told host Cat Deeley.
Head judge and creator, Nigel Lythgoe said, “It’s going to be a delight for me to take Matt to Hollywood and see him dancing there.”
SYTYCD UK has struggled in the ratings on BBC. I’ve heard reports that it won’t come back.
Special guest star, Jennifer Lopez, performed “On The Floor” during the telecast. Watch her performance below.
