Video of Kherington Payne and The Bolts at Age 7

This is just scary funny. I don’t think words can really describe it. Just watch the video embedded below and you’ll see what I mean.

Twitch and Kherington Payne’s Top 18 Viennese Waltz Choreographed by Jean Marc Generaux

Here’s the video of my favorite dance from last week. It was Twitch and Kherington Payne’s Top 18 Viennese Waltz to Celine Dion’s A New Day choreographed by Jean Marc Generaux for his daughter. So, I’m a sucker for Kherington, Twitch and Viennese Waltz. However, I usually hate Jean Marc Generaux. I’m glad he’s stepped up his choreography. Enjoy the video.

Here’s a second version
of Kherington and Twitch’s Waltz in case one gets taken down.

Just to show how much I love Viennesse Waltz and probably Celine Deon’s song, it looks like this isn’t the first time a Waltz like this has been done on so You Think You Can Dance. Here’s the version that So You Think You Can Dance Australia did that is at least as good and possibly better than Twitch and Kherington.

Kherington Payne’s Instructional Videos

Ok, now that I’ve proclaimed my personal bias for Kherington Payne I can show off all the cool videos of Kherington Payne that there are around the web. Turns out that she filmed a bunch of really cool instructional videos for people beginning to dance with a little bit of Kherington Payne modeling to go with it. Here’s a sample of what I’m talking about.

There’s a whole channel of these videos. It’s really fun to watch and really shows a personal side of Kherington that you don’t usually get to see on So You Think You Can Dance. Plus, it’s basically a ton of simple dance moves with Kherington having a bunch of fun.

Kherington Payne’s Original So You Think You Can Dance Audition

Last week, I began my love of Kherington Payne. It happens every season. One of the dancers becomes my favorite and this year it’s Kherington. In my new addiction, I found Kherington Payne’s original audition for the show and remembered how much I loved it too. What can I say a dancer that plays soccer is freakin awesome. Here’s a look at Kherington’s original So You Think You Can Dance Audition in case you missed it.

Desperate Request for So You Think You Can Dance Music Help

I’m definitely not the expert on So You Think You Can Dance and I don’t work for the show (although I am currently looking for a job if they’re reading this). However, this blog has a pretty good reach with fans of So You Think You Can Dance fans, so I’m sending out a request I received from a fan of the show that is interested in finding out title and the artist of some background music. I know! It’s a pretty big challenge, but I’m sure you’re up to it.

Here’s the details I’ve gotten:
I desperately need to know the artist and title of the BACKGROUND song and artist that was at Katee’s intro ?
I also heard this song played at these 2 routines ? (probably the same song)
Jason Williams
Aleksandra Wojda
Contemporary
“Unwritten”¡ªNatasha Bedingfield

(starting from 0:20, 01:20 is getting a little clear)

Jaymz Tuaileva
Jessica Fernandez
Contemporary
“Let Go”¡ªFrou Frou

(starting from 0:20)

Just leave a comment if you have any idea what it could be.
