    I'm soooooo happy for him! He deserves the win. He has stood out from the beginning! I'm happy Mariah was with him until the end.

    Sidenote: Did he say "I love you" to her in the beginning of this? Maybe that is just wishful thinking…

  2. Storm Tater says:

    Oh my gosh, I ugly cried so hard when he won! I adore this young man!

  3. Rimark Zanoria says:

  5. Annawuakina Pilet says:

  6. Theresa Gray says:

    I’m pretty sure he leaned in to kiss her πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  7. Heather Lynde says:

    YESSS Bailey

  8. jhhayes says:

    Congrats to Bailey! Bailey, Mariah, Sophie and Gino are all winners. The new set-up, format and the new judges gave the show a boost.

  9. da Star says:

    Congratulations to Bailey and I’m truly happy for him. SYTYCD must get this right because it’s the most unfair dance competition I know of since I’ve been watching. You have two partners dancing together doing their very best to shine and make the other shine as well because a lot of times as your partner goes you too will go. Therefore there’s no rightfully way to have one partner win while the other walk away with nothing but great memories. The show makes enough money to crown the couple equally and they should change the rules immediately. Each of them should have won 250k and it makes me sad for Mariah. She can have a great career going forward but she also deserved what’s due.

  10. Sean says:

    Bailey was so cute when he read the cue card. Congrats!

  11. Fee Mac says:

    I hope they get together!!! They r too cute!!!!

  12. shannon bland says:

    I love you 2! I knew you all were going to be the top 2!!!!!!!! Mariah, give the "CHAMP" A CHANCE!!!!!!!!!!

  13. shannon bland says:

    My kids and I can't wait to see you and Mariah on the road!!!!!

  14. purple1 star says:

    I wanted Mariah to win

  15. Wickedly Gravitational says:

    The way he said his name made me cry for sure

  16. D Mc says:

    Gino was so robbed.

  17. Mervin Ian Tende says:

    Go Bailey Proud To Be A Filipino

  19. favforsue says:

    I haven’t voted in years…but this year I had to vote for Bailey. Congratulations!

  20. CLB B says:

    Mariah told Bailey I love you first. I just watched the recording again. She said it first as they hugged after the NXS routine. Then Bailey repeated the same. This was shown right before they announced Bailey as the winner when with less than a minute remaining in the show.

  21. Kelly Collier says:

    Seriously, now as a former dancer, I'm 59 now, I know dancing and yes hes talented but Gino by far got my vote. He's got technique, style and passion. America you got it wrong wrong wrong. But what do I know, oh yeah I danced for over 30 yrs. No hate.

  22. Cimone Watson says:

    You can see them mouthing "I love you" to each other right before the announcement, and I'm like "AWWW ❀❀❀". (At first I thought only Bailey had said it, but if you look closely, it looks like Mariah said it first.)

    Congrats to both of them! I'm an incredibly huge fan of both of these dancers and I'm so glad Bailey won. I think they both have extremely bright futures ahead of them.

  23. Rain White says:

    Baily you truly are Amazing and very deservingπŸ‘‘β€β€β€πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

  24. Stargazing says:

    America got this right! Congratulations Bailey…well deserved! πŸ˜‰

  25. RodTechUnboxing AndroidRod says:

    They BOTH WIN PEOPLE HEART Bailey & MariahπŸ‘πŸ†πŸŽ‰πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  26. Carolyn Bello says:

    LOVE Bailey !!!!!!!

  27. jorge isaac briceno says:

    Yaaaaaas Bailey!!!!!!πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺ🏽

  28. twofingers onecup says:

    Kinda dumb to have the winner as the thumbnail

  29. Jasmine Washington says:

    I knew he was going to win

  30. Kenneth Lucas says:

    What if, in season 21, they let the top 20 be the 20 previous winners of So You Think You Can Dance, and see who is REALLY "America's Favorite Dancer"…

  31. Jasmine Washington says:

    In addition, bailey is a perfect example of being humble and enjoying what he loves. Throughout my five years of watching this show, there were some b boys who were arrogant who that being critiqued is unacceptable, and learning all the choreography in academy week is too much for them. Because of that, every time I watched a b boy during auditions, I always felt that they will not make it to next level, or that they feel too good to be catching up with the choreography. All that changed when bailey did that contemporary piece and that's when all that changed. Bailey deserved to win because he proved to everyone, including me that not b boys are arrogant or prideful. Their are some who are generous, humble, and good hearted people. Congrats bailey for being great😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

  32. shoSho says:

    He might be America's favourite dancer but Gino was The Best Dancer

  33. Valstar says:

    I was so happy for the final two and over the moon for Bailey. I hope Mariah and Bailey are a couple. It’s obvious they have love for each other as dance partners. ❀️

  34. Patrick Burgoon says:

    What people saying Gino was robbed clearly have no concept how hard it is for a b boy to change dance formats week after week no b boy has ever won till bailey because it's very hard for a b bboy to nail everything Gino was very talented but they expected it from him bailey was a shock week after week his couple pairings were amazing best on the stage and hes probaly been the most humbling and understand contestant ever america got it right 100%

  35. John Abbott says:

    HUGE credit to Mariah, who was genuinely happy for him. That's hard to do when you get that close, but you can see it in her eyes. As if it needed to be said, any of the top 4 were worthy of the win.
    But man, who didn't tear up when Bailey said his own name?

  36. Rowel Barrios says:

    I'm planning to watch this episode today… THEN!!!!!!!! 😀😀😀😀😀

    The excitement is over!!!

  37. Ron Farkas says:

    When producers spend the whole season pimping Gino but Bailey still wins

  38. Andre Stowe says:

    Could Have gone Mariah are Bailey

  39. hemanta phurailatpam says:

    Mariah is more of a technical dancer, her techniques r to the point; absolutely seamless. I still think her routine with Robert was the the best of the season . But this show is also about how much u connect to the crowd, that’s where bailey won.

  40. Will Cat says:

    The way he says it so softly omg I'm gonna cry

  41. Franz Geleca Carranza says:


  42. Ta E says:

    Congrats kuya bailey!

  43. Shanae Dyer says:

    I m clad they got this far. So happy for Bailey.

  44. Michelle Noreiga says:

    I made a bet and I won!!
    He reminded me so much of Fic-shun ..omg!
    Congrats Bailey!πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

  45. classyboy04 says:

    So proud of both Bailey and Mariah. Been rooting for both of them since day one

  46. Haylee Shaye says:

    DID NO ONE ELSE NOTICE BAILEY MOUTH β€œI love you” to Mariah?!!

  47. tikapaprika says:

    So glad this thumbnail showed up on my recommendations to spoil the thing for me.

  48. d8nya1 says:

  50. Nicobear Productions says:

    I think we all knew he had that dub from the beginning

  51. Priscillia Carter says:

    I am so happy for Bailey he deserved this he is an amazing dancer

  52. Jennifer Mataya says:

    Bailey was my favorite from the start, and Mariah was a close second. I had a feeling they’d be top two after their first dance together.

  53. Jazmartam Stumon says:

    I love Bailey and Mariah they r both adorable and really talentedπŸ–€πŸ’—, I would've been happy eather way 🐝cause they both deserve itπŸ’™πŸ’—πŸ₯‡πŸ₯ˆ

  54. Jeremy Johnson says:

    I loved this, I wish both could have won though. I can tell he truly loves Mariah. Regardless of it all I think they will always be friends at least. So happy he won though he truly earned it.

  55. c0171 says:

    Congratulations BAILEY!!!! Love how you can come to YT and see the after effects when the winner is announced. TV always cuts it so short – It's like an…. announce the winner 'and…. we're out!" attitude. They just immediately cut it off right afterward UH

  56. whutzat says:

    Well deserved!
    Congratulations, Bailey.

  57. coco alinsug says:

    MABUHAY, Bailey! Proud Filipino here

  58. megadezzies cat cat says:

    I am so happy Bailey won and Mariah came in second, my 2 favorite of SYTYCD. πŸ‘

  59. Antonietta Punyeta says:

    Madami naman dito mag claim kay bailey mga gago ulol!

  60. Irehs72 says:

    Thank goodness! Absolutely love him!

  61. Noodle T says:

    He is such a talented sweetheart and I think he showed the most growth and progression thru the season. Congrats and Yay to Bailey!

  62. BangtanMyBangtan says:

    *bailey* in tiny fonts.

    I JUST ….

  63. Nikki Guillen says:

    Another Pinoy pride yazzzzz congrats Bailey πŸŽ‰πŸ‘πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­

  64. Rhonda Rodgers says:

    They are both incredible, I would have been happy if either of them won! I can't wait to see their careers kick off and flourish. Even if they don't date (no matter how much we stan them πŸ˜‰ ) having this experience together probably means they will at the very least be lifelong friends πŸ’• Go BaiMar

  65. vins corpuz says:

    Go Pinoy Pride! Bailey and Hannahlei!

  66. karatekidmom says:

    Wish Gino had come in 2nd and would have been happy if he won. But I'm not disappointed that Bailey took it. He's such a lovable little thing and a pretty versatile dancer.

  67. Bode Chen says:

    Y'all noticed at 0:05 Bailey turned to Mariah and said ' I love you '

  68. Sam Gaines says:

    This is the one time they should've made it one male dancer and one female dancer. Mariah and Bailey showed up and showed out. Next season should be one male and female. Bailey was AWESOME but Mariah made him really shine

  69. Sam Gaines says:

    Mariah made it to the top does she get money like the others for coming in next to Bailey. I didn't see them provide her with an envelope as they did second and third place winners. She DEFINITELY deserved something

  70. Renee George says:

    Team Bailey FTW Been rooting for him all season long. Though I wish both he and Mariah could of won like that season when Fikshun and Amy both won, but at least they were the final Top 2. Totally well deserved! Now go rock that tour!!

  71. Alvin Simon says:

    Two Filipinos in a row!!! ❀️

  72. Dartanianswordsman says:

    I believe Bailey was instructed to participate in a calculated scheme designed to win win the hearts the audience and judges too. The scheme was to convince everyone that Bailey was a b-boy with no experience other styles of dance. The truth was that Bailey actually was a trained and because of height he he became discouraged. His handlers concocted a brilliant way of making
    Bailey the underdog. He tricked everyone by manipulating the emotions of everyone. He was paired with shortest female dancer, created a false romantic interest in his partner, who I believe was the best dancer on the show. She had excellent technique, versatility. energy, emotional connection to the story the choreographer expected them to purvey. Bailey won because his manipulative story actually worked. What's sad is that the bamboozled audience forgot the show is a dance competition based on the dancers proving themselves fully capable to be hired in professional dance projects. Bailey could not be hired in dance project with physical. His stature doesn't have the ability to dance with fluidity and grace. B-boy dancers require only strength and gymnastic ability. Bailey should not have been in the top four, and definitely the dance competition's winner. I feel bad for the real dancers on the show. They were all victims of a lie.

  73. Natividad Bejo says:

    Congrats BAILEY!! πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡΅πŸ‡­

  89. Ember_ Fox says:

    Bailey deserves it, but I think Gino should’ve won.

  90. iiBRIEZYii says:

  96. JosieJay D says:

  97. ariellajasmine says:
