“So You Think You Can Dance” Season 14 contestant Taylor Sieve recently opened up about her stint on the hit Fox reality TV competition.
While speaking with The Globe, the Maple Grove, Minnesota, native said that moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in dance has been very challenging. However, she’s willing to risk it all just to make her dreams come true. One of her biggest dreams includes joining “So You Think You Can Dance” and making it to an all-star’s team. This season, she has been chosen by all-star Robert Roldan among all of the other aspiring contestants who made it to his team.
“I am part of that 10, which is crazy. I’ve been watching this show ever since I was growing up, and it’s crazy to think that now I’m actually on it,” she said. Last week, Sieve and Roldan performed live for the first time ever in Season 14 and received a slew of positive comments from judges Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe and Vanessa Hudgens.
Even though Sieve has background in joining competitions, she admitted that performing on live television is far more nerve wracking than anything she has ever done. “Dancing on live television is nerve wracking because anything could go wrong at any time. But it was very rewarding and very special,” she said.
Meanwhile, Sieve recently sparked rumors that she’s dating her fellow top 10 contestant, Lex Ishimoto. The teen dancer has been selected by all-star Gaby Diaz to join her throughout the duration of the competition. On Friday, Sieve posted a photo of herself and Ishimoto on her Instagram account and captioned the snap with “My love.”
Ishimoto also received positive comments from all three judges who were happy with the fact that he’s starting to show his personality more. Prior to the live shows, Diaz expressed her concern over Ishimoto possibly relying on him too much during their live performances. But even Diaz was surprised with how much Ishimoto has improved since his stint at the Academy.
“So You Think You Can Dance” Season 14 will air its first elimination on Monday at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox.
