Todrick Hall returns to Broadway as Billy Flynn in the record-breaking revival of Chicago. The Drag Race judge and Out of Oz creator and star shot to stardom through his masterful viral videos. Today we TBT to 10 that always give us life and leave us wanting more.
Return to Chicago
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Come on with that Broadway-name-check rap that spans from :48-1:03.
Spell Block Tango
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: This staple video combines all that is the Todrick brand—Broadway, Disney, clever lyrics, production values, and killer arrangements. I always love Amber Riley’s section beginning at 3:12.
Beauty and the Beat
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: The video that started it all (and prob. I’ve seen on repeat more than any other) is flawless—without flaw. Watch the entire thing…twice.
Home from Straight Outta Oz
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: The visuals of this are everything—the way the ruby red slippers sparkle on that dark stage—Yas! Come through 2:47.
90s Disney with Shoshana Bean
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Again, costumed to the Gods and freshly arranged af. I love Todrick’s “Poor Unfortunate Souls” but I was ready to get turnt during the Aladdin section beginning at 3:15.
I Wanna Be On Glee
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: This 4-minute number was better than the last three years of Glee combined. #AllTAllShade Seriously, this is so damn joyful and catchy. How about the full on church revival that kicks off at 2:50.
Hocus Broke Us
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Hocus Pocus plus Destiny’s Child, what more can you need?!? “I Put a Spell on You” begins at 2:10.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: While we are talking about the queen, here’s 4 minutes of killer Beyonce. The mash-up of “Single Ladies” and “Freakum Dress” into “Get Me Bodied” at 3:15 was nothing short of lit.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: So smart and so well produced. Lived for the three-way calling scene with “The Boy Is Mine” music underneath at 2:25. Also watch his follow up, “Mean Boyz”.
Low with RuPaul
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Another Oz video but this one is absolutely next level! Mama Ru makes her grand (we mean GRAND) entrance at 1:24 talking about meeting Tin Man on Tinder. This is a masterpiece.
BONUS: Once Upon A Crime
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Alyssa Edwards for 4 minutes and 31 seconds. Enough said.
