Gearing up for the new season of her hit Fuse series, premiering Tuesday, September 12Big Freedia needed to find new dancers to expand her Shake Team. After auditioning dozens of performers Freedia wanted her fans to make the final pick. Earlier in February we hosted the Big Freedia Dance Off poll and thousands of votes were cast for five different dancers, but there can only be one winner. Today we're announcing who the fans picked to be Freedia's new dancer!

Okay, all good? Let's do this. The winner of Big Freedia's Dance Off, who fans voted for like crazy, is none other than New Orleans native Satchel Joseph! Congrats, girl!

Satchel will join Freedia and her crew for an upcoming performance and you can look out for her cute face (and awesome moves) in the new season of Big Freedia, premiering Tuesday, September 12 at 10PM. Thanks to all who voted and helped Big Freedia find her final dancer!
