So You Think You Can Dance
Check out AfterElton's interview with the amazing Travis Wall. Travis competed on season two of So You Think You Can Dance, and has gone on to become a gifted dancer and choreographer.
While watching one of the most awkward and uncomfortable episodes of American Idol ever, we were reminded that our favorite show is about to premiere again for the summer... So You Think You Can Dance! Everyone at Hunk du Jour HQ is a huge fan of the show -- and we even went to their live touring show after the series ran.
Wade Robson is one of our favorite choreographers on the show, and he always puts together really amazing pieces. He's also well-known for choreographing many pop acts such as N*Sync.
Last season featured an insanely talented (and incredibly hot) set of guys in the finals -- what will this year's season bring? We can't wait to find out.
In other news, did we hear Neil Haskell has joined the cast of Altar Boyz in New York? I can't think of a more sweet addition to an already sweet production.
My apologies for the lack of posts this week. I'm getting over a pretty nasty bug that I picked up over the weekend... I guess it's good I got those automatic Hunk of the Day posts going before I was down for the count!
It's time to feature So You Think You Can Dance cutie Neil Haskell. I was a big fan of the show over the summer and happily admit that I'm going to go see their live tour performance in Everett tonight. Neil was one of my favorites not just for his looks and his moves, but because he had this awesome personality that came across -- you could tell he was someone everyone liked to be around.
Check out this fan vid, plus a few more YouTube finds after the jump.
Season 3 of So You Think You Can Dance is taking off... (Clockwise, from Top-Left) Cedric, Danny, Dominic, Jimmy, Pasha, Neil, Kameron, Hok, and Jesus (center) star with their partners in this fantastic dance competiton show.
These aren't some celebrities that started practicing a few weeks ago for the show -- these kids have been dancing for years. While each comes from a background ranging anywhere from breakdancing to ballroom, they each are assigned a genre of dance and a professional choreographer to work with. They only have a few days to learn their new dance before being thrust back in front of a national audience who holds their fate in their hands.
We love our reality tv like Big Brother (oooh, wee... July 5th can't come soon enough!) but there's something great about a show that really comes down to quality of performance. It's something I enjoy about Project Runway too -- the judges end up deciding who was the most talented, and it's not (entirely) a popularity contest.
Anyway -- we love the show and think you should watch it. There's a good chance one or all of the men above will be ripping their shirts off at some point.
