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

[flv:http://queerty-prodweb.s3.amazonaws.com/wp/docs/2010/04/blakenight.mp4 http://queerty-prodweb.s3.amazonaws.com/wp/docs/2010/04/blakenightboard.jpg 650 400]

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.

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

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

      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.

      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.

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

      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

      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.

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

      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.

      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.

      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.
