Kelsea Taylor “Beautiful Disastrous Weirdo” SYTYCD 5 Audition

UPDATE: The full version of Oona’s “Tore My Heart” that Kelsea danced to is now on iTunes Oona - Tore My Heart - Single - Tore My Heart

Kelsea Taylor is what makes SYTYCD special to me. She’s a unique personality that brings a unique dance style that kind of stretches the movements we’re use to seeing in dance. Someone that can do that is really special.

Many have been asking about what music was used for Kelsea Taylor. After much looking, we could update the LA audition music. Kelsea Taylor (45105) danced to “Tore My Heart” by Oona and Dave Tweedie (So far I can only find it available on Myspace and now a free MP3 download here) Reportedly, the song was originally “Habanera” Kate Nash - Foundations - EP - Habanera by Kate Nash, but had to be swapped due to copyright issues.

It’s always interesting when they decide to swap songs. Copyright issues are tough and sometimes expensive. I think you could also tell the music was swapped since she finished dancing and the music kept going. Would be interesting to see someone overlay the Kate Nash Habanera song with the video of Kelsea Taylor below.

I can’t wait to see Kelsea Taylor dance more in Vegas.

UPDATE: Some really talented SYTYCD fan just posted the video of Kelsea Taylor dancing to her original music “Habanera” Kate Nash - Foundations - EP - Habanera by Kate Nash. You can see how this song does match her dancing. Someone had to know this was replaced or how would they know it would match so perfectly?

Good news for all is that a lot of people will get to know both songs and Kelsea Taylor!!
