When "So You Think You Can Dance" decided to shake up its format during its 13th season, featuring dancers under 18, reactions were mixed. But even the most skeptical viewers couldn't help but fall in love with tiny tapper Emma Hellenkamp, who ended up shuffling her way to the finale, ultimately nabbing the third runner-up spot. Emma, who was paired with former "SYT" winner and fellow tapper Gaby Diaz, wowed fans every single week with her furiously fast feet, larger-than-life smile, and sweeter-than-candy personality.
