Lex Ishimoto Dishes on the "SYTYCD" Glitterati

November 8, 2017

Find out what Lex thought of the “SYTYCD” judges and who teased him the most on set.

On Vanessa Hudgens:

“The fact that she danced on the finale? She’s amazing! I wasn’t expecting that one bit.”

On Mary Murphy:

“She’s always so energetic and gave really good feedback. Everything she says comes from a genuine place.”

On Nigel Lythgoe:

“I was always most nervous to hear from Nigel. I worked with him when I was little on the TV series ‘Dance School Diaries,’ so I knew him and felt more pressure to impress him. Plus, he’s a very honest British man—you never know what’s going to come out of his mouth.”

On Gaby Diaz:

“She’s the type of dancer I want to be when I grow up. She can do anything and everything she’s asked to do, and she always challenged me to do my best.”

On host Cat Deeley:

“You can’t not love Cat! She would tease me all the time, and loved to joke around with me right before my performances.”
