Russell Ferguson — 20-year-old Hip-Hop/Krump dancer from Boston — tells it "feels like a dream come true" to win Fox's So You Think You Can Dance.

Ferguson tells Us he was especially shocked, considering that he injured himself during a hip-hop routine with fellow contestants Jonathan "Legacy” Perez and Kevin Hunte.

"I was hoping I'd be standing here, but I never would have imagined this day!" he tells Us. "Everything has fallen into place, everything feels so perfect right now. I couldn't ask for anything more. I'm just honored to be in a position to tell other Krumpers, 'You can do this.' They might even believe me now!"

So what will he do with his $250,000 prize?

"The first thing I'm going to buy is a car, so I can get myself around Boston," he tells Us. "I also want to help kids there because that's what it's all about — just getting around the community and seeing how I can give back somehow. If you just keep a gift like that to yourself, it means nothing."

Next up for Ferguson: Performing in the 2010 Oscars telecast.

Says the dancer, "It's like a big tidal wave."
