Gaby Diaz has consistently impressed judges this season on “So You Think You Can Dance,” so much so recently that she vaulted to the top of our users’ predictions last week, tying longtime frontrunner Jaja Vankova. So we asked our readers to tell us who they would pick if the season came down to a head-to-head battle between the two standout women. The results are in, and Diaz is your winner.

As of this writing, 56% of respondents prefer Diaz, while 44% favor Vankova. But that’s different from who our users are predicting will win. In their predictions, Vankova is back out front this week with 9/10 odds based on support from 53% of users. Diaz follows with 19/10 odds based on 34% of users predicting her to win. So tap specialist Diaz once again has ground to make up against her charismatic street rival.
But there’s time left for her to do it. The winner won’t be announced until September 14, following the final performance round on September 7, and as we’ve seen in weeks past, a single dance can make all the difference. Check out the chart below to track how Vankova and Diaz’s odds have shifted throughout the season, both trending dramatically upward in the past few weeks.
