Ellen DeGeneres brings me joy and happiness today, here’s why:
This week, on her show, Ellen showcased one of my all time favorite dancing celebrities, Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss.
Most of you probably know tWitch as the runner-up in season 4 of SYTYCD, who returned for season 7 as an ‘all-star’, pairing up with contestants for hip-hop pieces. He’s also appeared on Bones and Touch (both dramas on Fox) and played the best character in Step Up3-D, Jason, which he will reprise in this summer’s Step Up Revolution (also staring SYTYCD alum Kathryn McCormick).
Now, tWitch is is a phenomenal dancer, and if that’s not enough to make you love him, the fact that he’s incredibly good looking should be enough to push you over the edge. Just in case, here’s one more reason to get behind tWitch: his recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. tWitch teamed up with Ellen’s corespondents, Sophia Grace and Rosie. The girls, known for their viral video cover of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’, went to tWitch for dance lessons:
tWitch can really pull off a tiara, right?? Not only does that video make me jealous that Sophia Grace and Rosie got personal dance lessons from tWitch, but it also makes me insanely jealous of their ability to pull off tutus on a daily basis. Though tWitch didn’t join in on the fashion trend set by the girls, he did join them on the show with an epic dance performance!
Watching tWitch dance with those little girls just melts my heart (what can I say? I’m powerless against sexy dancers who are good with kids). I’m really excited to see what tWitch does next in his career (my sister and I really want him to be the lead in Step Up, if/when they make another). And I hope these videos have gotten you excited for him too!
You can also check out tWitch’s work with The LXD: Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, a group of some of the most talented dancers coming together under the guidance of Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3-D director, Jon M. Chu. Glee star, Harry Shum Jr. (aka ‘other Asian’ aka Mike Chang) is also a part of the LXD, and I’m sure that won’t be the only familiar face you spot.

What do you guys think of their final performance on the show? Are you a fan of Ellen’s/Sophia Grace and Rosie/tWitch? Do you also wish you could dance like that??
