NATIONAL -- A dancer with ties to Central Illinois is now a famous reality TV star. 19-year old Dushaunt Stegall, otherwise known as Fikshun, is the winner of Fox's hit show So You Think You Can Dance.

The hip-hop dancer has major supporters in Peoria, where his mom lives. She hosted a watch-party during Tuesday's finale.

She broke out in tears when he was named the winner. She says her son deserves this more than anyone. She adds she's proud of her little boy.

Fikshun turned 19 last week. His mom says this is the perfect birthday present Fikshun will go on a 42-city tour starting in October.
