SYTYCD Winner Lex Ishimoto Praises All-Star Gaby Diaz (Exclusive)

Lex Ishimoto is still letting his win sink in from Monday night’s So You Think You Can Dance finale.

The dancer, who hails from Irvine, Calif., opened up about that final moment and working with season 12 winner and All-star, Gaby Diaz.

“I felt really content with whatever was going to happen,” Lex tells JJJ. “This was one of the scenarios where it was out of my control, for all of us. I did what I needed to do throughout the competition and I was perfectly happy with whatever was going to be the outcome.”


Lex also says that working with Gaby was kind of a dream come true.

“It was amazing. She’s definitely one of those people who’s taught me a lot in this specific experience and I’m so grateful,” he says. “Just seeing her dancing is inspiring and I love her.”

In fact, Lex‘s favorite performance throughout the season was their tap number.

“I felt like it was just a classic, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers vibes and it was actually the only tap number throughout the show. It was a much needed to have tap out there and be seen.”
