The top 10 have been revealed for “So You Think You Can Dance” season 18, but before they’re judged by panelists Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Allison Holker and JoJo Siwa, they’ve been judged by fans who have predicted who will win the season here in our predictions center, and have decided who should win the season here in our poll. In both cases, the answer is the same. Contemporary specialist Easton Magliarditi is the young man to beat.

Magliarditi was the very first performer we saw in the auditions round, and his routine got a standing ovation from the judges. But this wasn’t the first time fans of the show have seen him. A decade ago he competed on “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation” when he was only nine. He didn’t prevail then, but most of the fans we’ve polled think he will now. He gets leading odds of 9/5 based on their combined predictions, followed by Anthony Curley with 59/20 odds; during the auditions rounds Chmerkovskiy actually called Curley a front-runner to win the competition. Our complete racetrack odds going into this week’s episode are as follows:

As for who deserves the title, Magliarditi ruled that poll as well, and he was far ahead of the rest, getting 41.14% of the vote. Compare that to Avery Gay in second place with just 16% and Braylon Browner in third with 12%. This season, though, fans don’t get to pick the winner as in years past. This time it’s entirely up to the judges to pick who stays, who goes and who collects the grand prize of $100,000 based on how they perform in challenges meant to replicate a real career in dance. But it’s clear from our surveys that Magliarditi has real star power. Will the panelists agree? See the complete breakdown of who fans are rooting for below.
