Spoiler alert: If you haven't watched the So You Think You Can Dance finale yet, proceed with caution.

Two winners were crowned last night: Eliana Girard and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp. This is the first time that one, let alone two, ballet dancers have taken home the top prize.

Can't say we were all that shocked by sweethearts Eliana and Chehon beating out Tiffany Maher and Cyrus Spencer respectively, but did any of the six judges have a jaw on the floor moment? 

You bet! Get the backstage chatter, plus Eliana and Chehon's emotional reaction:

"It hasn't settled yet, it still feels like I'm dreaming," Eliana told E! News, adding her mother was the first person she was excited to share this victory with. "I feel like I'm able to give back to her—she spent all her money just so I can dance."

As for Chehon, the fact his family was not there was what made his win somewhat bittersweet. Tear! 

"That was part of what was upsetting—that my family couldn't be here to celebrate with me," Chehon told us. "Tonight was such a shock. I never, never expected to win the show."

Judge Mary Murphy was just as surprised, saying: "I was hoping it was going to be Chehon, but I honestly thought Cyrus was going to take it…I was definitely shocked at the result."

"I was really happy where they went with the male vote," agreed judge Adam Shankman, adding the female result was "perfect."

Were we the only ones not surprised Chehon was going to win? Cat Deeley breaks it down why America was probably shocked.

"Eliana and Tiffany could go either way," Cat told us. "I was surprised about the Cyrus and Chehon thing purely because Cyrus hadn't been in the bottom before."

"However, I do think Chehon is the better all round dancer and probably deserved to win a little bit more," Deeley dished.

That's not all the SYTYCD scoop! Watch the video below to hear where Eliana and Chehon hope to go from here.
