NSW teenager Michael Dameski has won reality TV series So You Think You Can Dance and pocketed $100,000 for his efforts.

Dameski defeated NSW lyrical jazz specialist Lauren Seymour in the viewer-judged final on the Ten Network on Thursday night.

Four dancers made the grand final, but Jay Johns and Renelle Jones were eliminated during the live telecast, leaving Dameski, 18, and Seymour, 22, as the last two standing.

Not only did Dameski collect $100,000, he also has the choice of a role with The Australian Ballet, master dance classes with Red Bull Flying Bach in Berlin or a season with Burn The Floor.

The reality series, which featured award-winning US choreographer Paula Abdul as a judge, has struggled to attract huge viewer numbers and its future is uncertain.

Abdul recently told AAP she will to return to Australia for the show if Ten gives the green light for another season.

"My favourite thing is to be around talent ... absolutely I'd be back, without blinking an eye.

"This is a labour of love for me and I have fallen in love with Australia and Australians."
