If Only Blake McGrath’s Bisexuality Was On Full Display In ‘Night’

Last year, after learning Blake McGrath is bi, we fell even harder for the cocky one-time So You Think You Can Dance contestant. Now a judge on Canada’s version of the show, he’s added another hyphenate to his CV: singer. This week, after a much-hyped (Twitter and YouTube) build up, McGrath has released the video for “Night (Only Place To Go).” And it’s exactly what we needed.

The video feels like a male version of Britney Spears’ “Circus.” It’s catchy. It’s sexy. And in an unexpected era of the return of music videos as art (see: Lady Gaga‘s “Telephone”; M.I.A.’s “Born Free”), McGrath’s “Night” is both aspirational and artful. Appreciate it for what it is: A dance track with a great hook, decipherable lyrics, and a hot guy on vocals.

Now if he would just chill about his love for Rick Warren, we’d be all set.
