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.

    i honestly dont hate and pretty much like the song and vid.

  • AlanInSLCUtah

    He is absolutely beautiful to look at and the song is quite decent. I like!

  • Jack Smythe

    and the little back alley interlude was a pretty direct reference to the homo side of his sexuality.

  • jimstoic

    Someone needs to tell his people to make sure his stuff is up on iTunes before it hits the Web.

  • fredo777

    I’m a fan of his from SYTYCD, first + foremost. When I just spotted this news on another blog I was so happy + quickly downloaded a copy of the music vid to my hard drive…for posterity.

  • afrolito

    Wow….it’s all kinds of shit. He’s cute tho.

    The music industry won’t allow a male singer to market himself as bisexual. It will only allow female singers to do this.

    This homophobic double standard exists right throughout the music industry.

  • Michael

    This guy is bisexual??? He reads full-on gay to me.

  • AlwaysGay

    I like the song and music video. He’s hot. Loved the shot of his nipple ring at 1:20.

  • alan brickman

    He was on the Jennifer Lopez dance show and was totally flaming….and lived in Mae West’s building no less!!!

  • Sami

    Michael & Alan Brickman,

    So, a totally masculine/straight acting guy can be gay, but a slightly feminine guy can’t be bisexual or straight?

    He attractive and very talented; all power to him admitting that he is bisexual.

    At least he’s admitted to being bisexual, not like any of the prominent American figure skaters that are having a major hissy fit as of late.

    The link that brought me here from another article on Queerty reads:

    “Blake McGrath: The Bi Dancer-cum-Singer”

    Ummm. What’s a “cum-singer”? Hahahahhaha

  • Chris Porter

    There was a pretty nice man-on-man scene with Blake and straight sexy ass Nico Archambault (winner of the first season of SYTYCD Canada) that was filmed but was left on the cutting room floor – check his youtube account http://www.youtube.com/blazius1 and the sneak peek has it in it.

  • Tessie Tura

    It’s nice, but he makes Adam Joseph (“Faggoty Attention”) sound butch.

  • Rob Moore

    It is alright, but here is something I never thought I would say. Brittany Spears is a better singer/lip syncher. Watching his mouth move when he “sang” was a lot like watching me trying to be a ventriloquist with my daughter’s teddy bear.

  • Ryan707

    It wasn’t great but it was ok. It wasn’t awkward to watch. I thought it would be a complete disaster. So there’s some potential there at least. We’ll see if he get’s any more support.

  • alan brickman

    I did forget to mention he is hawt!! my bad…

  • alan brickman

    Can Nico sing? that would be great!!….

  • alan brickman

    Don’t get me wrong..Blake is awesome!! Albert Eistein said it best….Dancers are the Atheletes of the Gods!!

  • Black Hispanic

    I’ve never heard of this guy. He’s cute. The song has an ok beat, but he’s not a great singer. However, you don’t have to be a great singer in the 21st century.

  • Andrew

    Bi is a rest stop on the highway to homoville.

  • Bucket

Love to get to know him better call me at the Police station, so I would like to see you, and him learn to be family!
