The series followed award-winning choreographer/producer Debbie Allen’s pursuit of a true “triple threat,” - a performer with personality who can sing and dance. Last night’s finale saw Lee’s lifelong dream of being a Chinese-American popstar begin to form as he outshined runner-up 23-year old Shannon Bex from Portland, Oregon. Other finalists were Serena Henry, 20, from Henderson, Nevada and Brandon O’Neill, 16, from Knoxville, Tennessee.

As the winner of the summer-long competition, Lee will receive a management deal from top music manager and “Fame” celebrity panelist Johnny Wright. Under the deal, Lee is guaranteed to record a single with WIRE Records that will be produced by one of Wright’s esteemed clients such as Justin Timberlake, Jermaine Dupri or P. Diddy. Lee will also receive a $100,000 spokesperson contract from Wilhelmina Artist Management; a principal role in the opening New York City-run of the international hit musical, “Fame” on 42nd Street; one-year of training at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy; representation from one of Hollywood’s top agencies; and one year of free accommodations at the W Hotel Los Angeles while his career takes flight.

Fame” is produced by MGM Television Entertainment and Stone Stanley Entertainment with David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and multiple Emmy-Award winner Jeff Margolis serving as executive producers.
