Idol Alumnus Showcases Talent with Creative YouTube Videos
We always wonder what happens to the people who were voted off of American Idol. Do they go on to have successful singing careers or do they go back to leading a normal life? Well, we’ve been watching one past Idol contestant very closely lately, and we are so excited to tell you about some of his finest work.
Season 9 contestant Todrick Hall has been taking YouTube by storm with some of the most entertaining videos we’ve ever seen. Todrick showcases his talents in several ways, which include flash mobs in Target stores, singing in places like Starbucks and Subway to order a meal and by creating an entire music video dedicated to Glee creator Ryan Murphy explaining why he should join the FOX show. Basically, this guy is a creative genius.
His most impressive work comes in the form of long videos that flow more like musical short films. Both videos are Disney themed and show his undeniably creative ability to take the Disney classics and bring them back into more modern times.
“Beauty and the Beat”
This video features tons of people that many of us all have seen before. Another past American Idol contestant, the beautiful Katie Stevens, portrays a modern version of Belle. She walks through what is set to be the ghetto and sings about getting her hair and nails done. Instead of being harassed by Gaston, Belle is confronted by a character named Jerome. It is so much fun to see people such as Glozell and Antoine Dodson popping up in this fun video!
Todrick takes his musical talents to a whole new level in this video. He combines classic Disney songs with Top 40 radio hits from Rihanna and Katy Perry to make a masterpiece. Stars such as Janice Dickinson, Aubrey O’Day and Lance Bass make cameos in this dance-filled music video. Even Glozell comes back to play the fairy godmother! Todrick plays CinderFella, a man who just wants a chance to go to the ball but feels held back by his family. The true message behind this entire music video is to “legalize love,” as he puts it in the end of the video. He wants all people to be able to express themselves without being held back. This is not a video to skip over; we’ve already watched it several times!
Do you remember Todrick Hall? If not, we think that it’s time for you to get reacquainted with this music video making genius!
