“So You Think You Can Dance” has won Best Choreography at the Emmys a whopping eight times in the past decade and is nominated three times this year alone (for Spencer Liff, Sonya Tayeh and Travis Wall). So it stands to reason that at least a few dances from season 12 will be among the nominees in that category in 2016. But which ones will they be? Vote in our poll below to let us know what was your favorite STAGE dance this season. (Vote for your favorite STREET dance HERE.)

Wall has certainly made a case for himself to be nominated again next year, which would be his sixth consecutive bid. This year he served as the mentor for Team Stage, but he also choreographed several routines that wowed the judges, including the contemporary dance “Your Day Will Come,” performed by Edson Juarez and all-star Jaimie Goodwin in “Top 10 Week,” the night Juarez was eliminated. Wall was also responsible for the eerie, ghostly routine “Beautiful Friends,” performed by Team Stage during “Top 16 Week.”
Then there were emotionally sensitive routines, like “Angel,” performed by Diaz and all-star Robert Roldan and choreographed by Mandy Moore, who is a four-time past Emmy nominee. And Jaja Vankova and all-star Alex Wong moved the audience with the Alzheimer’s-themed “Youth” by Tessandra Chavez (an Emmy nominee this year for “Dancing With the Stars“).
