So You Think You Can Dance Crowns New Winner

Jeanine Mason’s life was turned upside down last night when she was crowned the new winner of So You Think You Can Dance. The 18-year old Florida native beat out Kayla, Evan, and Brandon for the top honors.

As the winner, she received $250,000, but according to Us Weekly, plans on donating all of it to the charity Making Memories, which helps people suffering with Alzheimer's.

Jeanine said after the win, "I feel so humbled and so excited to be here," she told Us. "It's the best feeling ever just to know that people love what you're doing."

As for what’s up next for her? Jeanine will soon hit the road on a national tour with the top 12 performers. But for now, she says, "I was contemplating chugging Tylenol PM and sleeping for a full week. I think I'm going to go with natural sleep, and I'll be icing myself to take care of my bruises."

Congrats to Jeanine for winning!
