She's still in the competition and aiming to win the prize as America's favorite dancer, but for the moment Johnson couldn't be more thrilled.
"I'm so happy. I've never been happier," she said. "I've never worked this hard or hurt as much as I do now, but it's so worth it. It's just helping me grow in so many ways.
"I can't even imagine what my life would be like if I didn't do this show."
Another Utah native, Malece Miller, barely missed out on the tour. She was eliminated on Tuesday.
"It's been an awesome experience," she said. "I've made so many friends and I've learned so much.
"I wish I could do it forever, but I have to go home sometime."
The rest of the top 10 dancers are Aaron Turner, Amy Yakima, "Fik-Shun," Hayley Erbert, Jasmine Harper, Jenna Johnson, Makenzie Dustman, Nico Greetham, Paul Karmiryan, and Tucker Knox.
