On Monday September 25, I had the chance to catch up with So You Think You Can Dance winner Lex Ishimoto immediately after the finale.
We chatted about a variety of subjects including if winning the show had actually sunk in. I asked him if the victory would impact his relationship with girlfriend and fellow finalist Taylor Sieve. Vanessa Hudgens also drops by our interview to tell the winner how proud she is of him. I asked Lex if there was a moment where he felt like he had the competition won. I asked him if he felt like the judges were hard on him, constantly telling him that he needed to show more personality. Finally we chatted about the impact that his all-star partner, Gaby Diaz, had on his win. Finally the newest SYTYCD winner carries on the tradition of ‘attempting’ to teach me a dance move. You can see for yourself how that plays out.
