Hot Clip of the Day: Ephraim Sykes in a "Thriller" of a Clip Ahead of MJ The Musical
Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
Ham4Ham Halloween Show! at Hamilton (Lin-Manuel Miranda, Seth Stewart & Ephraim Sykes)
Ulterior Motives: With all of our editorial features for Hamilton last week, something special caught our eye. When compiling our favorite #Ham4Hams we came upon this special Halloween "Thriller" edition. Following a fun Halloween costume contest, Lin, Seth and future Michael Jackson in 2021's MJ The Musical Ephraim Sykes launched into a lip sync/dance of the Michael Jackson hit song! How amazing to get a glimpse of Ephraim dancing this legendary song ahead of MJ The Musical's premiere!
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: The performance begins at 2:40. We were completely wowed by Ephraim's Tony nominated showstopping performance as David Ruffin in The Temptations Musical Ain't Too Proud. He is a true triple threat. Our ultimate moment begins at 3:07. His shoulder isolations! The way that Ephraim sticks every beat. It's such a thrilling performance (pun intended) and we look forward to the day we can see him shine on stage soon!
