In case you missed it, season 14 of So You Think You Can Dance wrapped up earlier this week. Congratulations to Lex Ishimoto, the new champion! The California native became America’s favorite dancer, and everyone is pretty jazzed about it. Why, you ask? Because he was the unexpected powerhouse of the season!

Everyone knows the story of the tortoise and the hare and the wonderful life lesson that goes along with - slow and steady wins the race. And that’s exactly what Lex did this season. Every performance, he remained steady and consistent with his routines; not to mention he made every single step flawless week after week. The boy is a machine of a genius, and he also seems quite humble. Oh, and one more thing - he's also super romantic. 

All season long, there was a secret love affair that managed to stay out of the lights. Lex Ishimoto and second runner up Taylor Sieve are dating! After some serious Instagram stalking, it appears the couple has been dating since early January. During the last week of the competition, the two lovers shared their story on the stage after finally being partnered with each other. To say it was magical is an understatement. The two are perfection, and what’s better than two star crossed lovers making it to the top four of SYTYCD together? Not much folks… not much.
