Triple threat performer Todrick Hall made his TV debut in 2010 when he auditioned for the ninth season of American Idol. (He made it to the semi-finals). After Idol, he continued to post his videos on his YouTube channel, where he now has more than 2 million subscribers. (His “Blurred Lines” parody with Bart Baker was viewed more than 37 million times.) In 2015, MTV gave him his own reality show, Todrick.
Todrick is known for collaborations. He recently partnered with dance instructor Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms. His most recently project was writing and choreographing a commercial using her dancers to promote Miller’s new dance studio in Los Angeles. It was inspired by the musical The Wiz (see video below). Todrick is dipping into The Wiz inkwell again with his musical “Straight Outta Oz”. (See trailer below.) He and the cast will take the show on the road. The North American tour will kick off in Vancouver on July 7 and end in Philadelphia on August 12. Before he hits the road, or eases on down the road, Todrick will join the Dance Moms girls for a performance on the show’s special episode “The Girls Say Goodbye,” on May 17 at 9pm on Lifetime.
