Kent Boyd performed in the finals of FOXs So You Think You Can Dance. Kelly Byers of The Lima News caught up with Boyd after the show. Heres their conversation:

TLN: Anything you want to say to your hometown?

Kent Boyd: I just want to say hi to all the Botkins graduates of 2010, and just everyone at home and everyone at the dance studio and all my teachers and everyone there. Everyone on my soccer team, and everyone at the pool. I just would like to thank them for all that theyve done.

TLN: The winner gets a quarter million dollars; do you know what you'd spend it on?

Kent Boyd: I dont know. I mean, I kind of take it day by day. But I mean, I feel like if I did win, I would help out, definitely a lot with my school and definitely donating a lot of money for the arts because thats where I want more kids to be involved because thats what I love. So, Id like to share that and hopefully, you know, just get more stuff going on at the school, because its such a small school, and they just dont have the funding.

And definitely the studio and definitely, Ill find good use for it, but definitely I'll save it and be smart.

TLN: So you've followed your fathers advice of being true to your roots?

Kent Boyd: Yeah, definitely. I think that really made me different from everyone, that Im from such a small town.

TLN: You've said the prom dance routine with Lauren (Froderman) was a favorite. Is that one you hope makes the tour?

Kent Boyd: I do hope that makes the tour, definitely. Its just one of my favorites because I love dancing with Lauren, and were both the same age, and we just graduated from high school, so were really on the same level in life, and shes just so fun to be around.
