SYTYCD’s William Wingfield Singing with Celine Dion

People have been totally freaking out about Twitch being in Hairspray. Well, it turns out that William Wingfield isn’t just Debbie Allen’s dancer, but it looks like he also did some work with Celine Dion. Take a look at this video of William Wingfield with Celine Dion (scroll to about the 5 minute mark):

Certainly he’s just singing raping not dancing, but it’s still interesting to see what he was doing before SYTYCD. I don’t think this will draw the same ire as Twitch in Hairspray, but it makes me wonder how he got the job with Celine Dion. I can’t believe that he just got the job as a “singer” for the show. I have to believe that he was a dancer with Celine Dion and they asked him to do this little bit of extra.

Assuming that he was dancing for Celine Dion’s show, it’s amazing how far SYTYCD has come. When Benji Schwimmer won in season 2, his reward was to dance for Celine Dion’s show. I guess now that’s just the entry criteria.

Video of Jessica and Will’s Top 16 Disco Routine

I think I may have been a little harsh on Will in the past. He’s still far from my favorite, but he’s not as horrible as I’ve said previously. I’m still not wearing the rose colored glasses of the judges, but we’ll see how he develops. I think the judges were dead on with Jessica. She seems like she could have something really special, but doesn’t realize it. The good thing is that that’s what makes her so great. I hope she never truly realizes it.

Here’s the video of Jessica and Will’s disco routine.
