(L-R) Tadd Gadduang and Marko Germar

Here's one more reason to be proud of our heritage! Fil-Ams Marko Germar and Tadd Gadduang both made it to the finale of US dance program So You Think You Can Dance. The last two boys standing in the competition, Marko and Tadd have a one-in-four chance of being "America's Favorite Dancer" for Season 8.

At last week's performance show, Marko, who was born in the Philippines, captivated the audience with a Paso Doble performance to the tune of Zorongo music:



In an earlier episode, he even made pop icon Lady Gaga cry after he danced to Jeff Buckley's "I Know It's Over." Lady Gaga said she was proud of Marko and acknowledged his love for dance. "There are so many things I did [wrong] when I was younger and so many things I wish I could take back," she is quoted as saying on PEP.ph.  "And I felt every moment of that through your dance. You are absolutely incredible."

Meanwhile, hiphop aficionado Tadd stretched his limits and made full of use of his charm in his contemporary routine. He and his partner, Season 6 finalist Ellenore Scott, set the stage on fire with their interpretation of Beirut's "The Gulag Orkestar." Check out his performance below.




Marko and Tadd face the two remaining female contestants in the competition, Melanie Moore and Sasha Mallory, in the finale.

Melanie, whose expertise lies in contemporary, tackled hiphop in last week's episode with a rendition of Nicki Minaj's "Roman's Revenge":



On the other hand, fierce Sasha delivered a contemporary routine to the tune of Me'shell Ndegeocello's "Fool of Me," which got her a standing ovation.
