Another season of “So You Think You Can Dance” has ended with a gracious victor, Melanie Moore.

As the season eight winner she will win $250,000, but the 19-year-old reportedly has no plans for the cash and instead wishes to go back to school People said.

After her big win Moore stated that she doesn’t want much except to relax and spend time with her boyfriend. She has also showed interest in getting a dancing gig in Kenny Ortega’s “Dirty Dancing” remake or even a spot on Lady Gaga’s music tour.

She explained, “I just want to make a living dancing. You guys could put me in a random costume, just in the background, dancing, and I’d just be so happy to do it, because it’s what I love.”

She looks like she just might get her wish, as Ortega told her, “”I would push myself to the front of the line to work with you.”

In the last round Moore battled contestant, Sasha Mallory, as they danced their hearts out to the song “Game On” by District 78.

Moore also beat out her former dancing partner on the show, Marko Germar, with a 47 percent vote from viewers.

The finale featured a slew of judges including Lil’ C, Robin Antin, Tyce DiOrio, Sonya Hayeh, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Mary Murphy.

The top four competed on national television for two hours, with Moore ultimately winning the crown and the purse.
