Overcoming an injury early in the evening, Russell Ferguson limped to victory on last night's So You Think You Can Dance finale.

Due to a knee he told the audience was "messed up," the 20-year old Boston native was unable to perform his second routine on the show, as Ferguson was in clear pain when host Cat Deeley called out the top six finalists to reveal the first elimination.

Still, when the final votes were tallied, this mover and shaker came out on top. He earned $250,000 for his efforts.

"I just want to thank everybody so much," said Russell after he beat out runner-up Jakob Karr. "This means everything to me. I've been dreaming of this since I was born. I came out and was, like, 'Aaah!'"

He can now scream Aaah! all the way to the bank.

The broadcast featured singing as well as dancing. Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Leona Lewis and Adam Lambert all performed on the show. The latter even avoided kissing any men during his rendition of "Whataya Want From Me."

Hurry up and peep it below before YouTube yanks the video.
