On the second episode of So You Think You Can Dance Season 15, get ready to see a familiar face. During the second night of audiences, judges Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe, Vanessa Hudgens and guest star Stephen “tWitch” Boss will be treated to a performance by Nicole Clonch and SYTYCD Season 2 winner Benji Schwimmer. They dance a West Coast Swing number to the Francis Novotny song “Hit & Run.”
It was 12 years ago when Schwimmer won So You Think You Can Dance. Since then, the 34-year-old from Newport Beach, California has been busy. He went on to star in Christina Aguilera’s 2007 music video “Candyman” (see below), danced and choreographed with Paula Abdul for her final performance on American Idol, and starred in the comedy Leading Ladies (see link above), among other things. Fun fact: Benji Schwimmer’s sister Lacey Schwimmer competed on Season 3 of So You Think You Can Dance and came in fourth place. That’s one rhythmic family. So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) airs Mondays at 8pm on FOX.
