Wednesday night's So You Think You Can Dance finale brought another shocker, as "diamond in the rough" — according to host Cat Deeley — Russell Ferguson won after being injured during the episode. TVGuide.com caught up with Ferguson backstage after his Season 6 win to find out how he triumphed through the pain. Also: The judges give us their take on the final two and what's next for Dance.

"It feels crazy. It feels like a dream come true," Ferguson says. "I was hoping I'd be standing here, but I never would've imagined this day." First up on the Bostonian's wish list: a new car. "[I want to] get myself around Boston to help these young kids. That's all it's about, it's getting around the community and seeing what project you can get into and how you can help somehow. If you just keep it to yourself, it means nothing."
