Massachusetts dancer in finale of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’

As one of the “So You Think You Can Dance” judges read the name of the final contestant to make this season’s finale, the dancers held hands and waited in anticipation.

When the judge said Dakayla Wilson’s name, she burst into tears.

Wilson, 18, originally from Florida, is a student at Southampton’s CLI, a dance conservatory, according to Western Mass News. She’s been back in Massachusetts as the episodes air, watching them with her friends at CLI, the news station reported.

“Honestly, I think the feedback has just been incredible and everyone is so like over the moon for me and they’re like ‘Dakayla … you’re on TV. How do you feel?’ I’ve been waiting for it,” Wilson told the news station.

On May 13, she dedicated her performance to her dad who was cheering her on from the audience.

“Hope she wins, her solo brought me to tears,” Nicole Deutsch-Danielo, a fan, wrote on Facebook.

“This was an amazing solo, it brought me to tears, well done Dakayla,” Renee Dishaw, another fan, wrote.

The show has been a dream come true, she wrote on Instagram when making the top 10.

“a dream can really come true 🫠 & couldn’t be more grateful to dance/ learn/ grow/ and share it all with these incredible humans + to start my @danceonfox journey is beyond wild to me,” she wrote.

The finale is Monday, May 20 at 9 p.m.
