GOOD NEIGHBOR: Let's dance.
KINGSLEY: Why-why-why-why- why-wadda-wadda.
GOOD NEIGHBOR: Let's dance.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: I'm Lauren Froderman.
I recently won So You Think You Can Dance?
I think I'm more of an easy kind of choreographer.
I love showing people's personalities when they dance.
Hey, what's up, everybody.
BRYAN TANAKA: I'm Bryan Tanaka.
I've been so blessed to be able to work with Rihanna,
Nicki Minaj, Beyonce.
I lean more towards the positive reinforcement.
But don't get it twisted.
If it's not working, I will crack that whip.
IAN EASTWOOD: What's up, guys, it's Ian Eastwood.
I've taught in over 15 countries.
And I'm only 18 years old.
Dance is everything to me.
It's my existence.
It's who I am.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: I'm Kherington Payne.
I was on So You Think You Can Dance.
I was in Fame.
Working with beginners, you just have to take your time.
And you have to have patience.
So it's definitely a challenge, but I'm
definitely up for it.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Tay Zonday is a singer.
His most well-known one is probably his Chocolate Rain.
TAY ZONDAY: (SINGING) Chocolate rain, zoom the
camera out and see the light.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: (GIGGLING)Oh, my gosh.
We're about to go and get ready for the dance.
And Tay says that he needs to put on new glasses.
TAY ZONDAY: This is a definite look.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: (GIGGLING) Isn't it?
I actually have never ever seen anybody wear
those to dance in.
I'm not even sure if I've ever seen those before.
TAY ZONDAY: I'm ready to dance and sweat.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Perfect.
TAY ZONDAY: I don't have much dancing experience.
And I don't know if I have what it takes
to win Dance Showdown.
Does Dance Showdown have what it takes to win Tay Zonday?
BRYAN TANAKA: I'm working with Amber,
better known as ObamaGirl.
AMBER: (SINGING) 'Cause I've got a crush on Obama.
BRYAN TANAKA: Like it.
AMBER: Nice to meet you.
BRYAN TANAKA: Nice to meet you.
BRYAN TANAKA: You're cute.
AMBER: He's just standing there.
And he's super cute.
And I'm like, oh, it's you.
And we were dressed alike.
We had the same colors on.
We were saying the same words.
I love him.
BRYAN TANAKA: But get that feeling for a little bit--
(TOGETHER) And then come back.
BRYAN TANAKA: What the heck?
That wasn't on cue, by the way.
That was just connections happening.
AMBER: I think I'm going to make T-shirts that say, I've
got a crush on Tanaka.
GOOD NEIGHBOR: We're GoodNeighbor,
from around the block.
BECK: Show him one [INAUDIBLE].
IAN EASTWOOD: That's pretty good.
IAN EASTWOOD: GoodNeighbor.
Just seeing them right off YouTube, they are very
interesting, really random.
GOOD NEIGHBOR: I spin.
Dun, dun-dun, dun-dun, da-da-da-da-dun.
IAN EASTWOOD: Seeing as GoodNeighbor is really the
only group, it got me really excited because that's a
unique opportunity to try something else that no one
else is going to get a chance to do.
BECK: My mom says I have great rhythm.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Hi!
It's Kingsley, bitch.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: My partner, his name is Kingsley.
And his YouTube channel is "It's Kingsley, Bitch."
KINGSLEY: Frankly, I am sick of the stupid [BLEEP]
keeps popping up on the [BLEEP]
internet, Rebecca Black.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: He's a great, funny, hilarious
character on YouTube.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Do you have any dance experience?
KINGSLEY: I have no dance experience.
The most dance I've done is just drunk at the pub.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: My favorite.
Give me a club move.
You can do that.
KINGSLEY: I'm not drunk, though.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: He's actually kind of shy.
And I was very, very surprised.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Hello, Hannah.
I'm going to be your choreographer.
I will be your dance subject.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: I know Hannah from MyDrunkKitchen,
her videos on YouTube.
HANNAH: Boom, boom, boom.
Big is food.
Boom, boom, boom.
Big is food.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: She's not afraid to be silly and goofy
in your videos.
HANNAH: There's actually a strong dance element in "My
LAUREN FRODERMAN: I was about to say, I feel like you might
be a little prepared.
HANNAH: I'm big on the dance.
I like to dance down the street.
I like to dance in my dreams.
I like to dance in your dreams.
So call me later.
SAM: I'm Sam.
How are you?
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Sam, I'm Kherington.
Nice to meet you.
SAM: Nice to meet you.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: I did some research on Sam and xJawz in
his videos, basically him just walking through games.
SAM: Oh, my god.
Four kills in a row.
Like 2008 or 2009, there was a clip that was one of those
most viewed videos on YouTube at the time.
The one dancing thing I'd ever seen before--
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Crazy.
SAM: --in my life was with you in it.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Small world.
SAM: Kherington is gorgeous.
She's a really cute girl.
I'm going to have a difficult time picking this up.
I'm going to make this a challenge on you.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: I like a challenge.
I could kind of tell he was a little shy
and a little nervous.
SAM: It should be interesting.
I'm really excited.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Me, too.
OK, let's do it.
SAM: All right.
IAN EASTWOOD: The routine that I'm choreographing for
GoodNeighbor, I took a lot of inspiration from their very
Their energy is so fun and loving.
There's going to be moments where, spotlight!
KYLE: Kind of like a troll type thing.
NICK: I think it was off camera, but he wanted the four
of us to kiss a little bit.
I don't know if that was weird to you guys.
KYLE: At first I thought it was weird.
BECK: At first I thought it was weird.
NICK: And I thought that was not a good way
to go with the dance.
KYLE: But he talked us into it.
TAY ZONDAY: Very Devo.
I want to go rob a bank.
I'm gonna be like, give me the money.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: I really want him to get into this
character, more of like a gangster, thug side, even
though that may not be what Tay is originally comfortable
with, I think this is just the right amount of push for him.
Seven, eight, run, good, good, good good, and slide.
TAY ZONDAY: [INAUDIBLE] my feet.
They won't slide.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
TAY ZONDAY: I think that it is true.
I think there's part of me that's like, I'm fine China,
and I'll break if I commit to it too much.
Yeah, she does a great slide.
Really, what we should do is we should motion-capture
Lauren and make a CGI Tay and then put in the
CGI Tay doing a slide.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: I think he'll get it eventually.
AMBER: I think the song's great.
It gets me excited.
When he does the moves, that gets me excited.
I'm just excited.
BRYAN TANAKA: So the concept for this, it was actually
inspired after watching some of Obama Girl's
videos off of YouTube.
She's the positive.
She's the right the right way to go, which is really just to
get up and vote.
And I am the vote No.
She's going to convince me to switch and get
motivated to vote.
AMBER: So maybe instead of having a Yes shirt, you should
just have on my Obama Girl outfit.
Or we could just come up with Obama Boy's outfit.
BRYAN TANAKA: Now you're thinking.
You see, now we're connecting the heads.
BRYAN TANAKA: You know, Sometimes sex does sell.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: And need your arms--
There you go.
My vision for this piece is that Kingsley is my waiter.
And I am this stuck-up, prissy bitch customer.
He basically gets fed up.
And he breaks me down at the end.
And he defeats me.
KINGSLEY: There are way too many steps that
I'm supposed to learn.
And I don't really know what's going on right now.
And I'm freaking out.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: So I'm going to be coming around this way
and doing a cartwheel that way.
KINGSLEY: And I have to put my hand over the part of her
that's at bending.
And she flips over and puts her [BLEEP]
in my face.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Oh, my god!
We did it!
KINGSLEY: I did not come here for [BLEEP]
in my face.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: You know how--
HANNAH: --dancing works?
LAUREN FRODERMAN: No
It's basically going to be a dance about getting ready.
And we have shoes all over the place.
And it's going to be Hannah going through these shoes.
And she's not sure which ones she wants to
wear to go out in.
And she's going to have to take the dance to figure out
which shoes she wants to put on.
How comfortable are you dancing in these?
HANNAH: Not at all.
Yeah, all right, well.
I guess I'm going to have to just embody a
flamboyant gay guy.
My drag queen name is Madam Kiwi.
She is delightful and fabulous.
And she'll be guiding me through.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: And it's like, oh, this is my moment.
HANNAH: Should I do a little hip cock?
It's like, one.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: If you want to.
HANNAH: Then I will flame this whole thing out.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: One-two-two, three-four-four, five.
This dance is a Mr. & Mrs. Smith type of vibe.
Were like, oh my god, we realize each
other's spouse is a spy.
Oh, my gosh.
We start attacking each other.
Run for your life!
SAM: One, two--
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Ngaah!
SAM: I'm lost.
I got one and two, and I got eight.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Working with beginners, it's very hard,
just because you have to tell yourself, these people don't
know what you're talking about, Kherington.
Don't start doing-- no!
Don't do a flip.
Now you're going to do--
All right, wait.
I'm overthinking this dance way too much.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: You are.
Oh, my goodness.
AMBER: I'm very competitive.
Everyone's going down, whether they like it or not.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
We're going to move on seven.
TAY ZONDAY: (IN A CARTOON VOICE) Oop.
What's going on?
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Tay just needs to shut off that brain.
And he needs to get loose.
Shoulders relaxed, shaken out.
And you're going to walk, running
away into the distance.
It's going to be really tough.
I definitely have my work cut out for me.
KINGSLEY: Mom, I hope that I make you proud
and learn this dance.
I'm not only doing this for me, but for you.
I'm ready to dance my [BLEEP]
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Stomp.
And then-- yes, yes, yes!
HANNAH: I don't know if that's true.
Yes, it would be very nice to win and have the money.
I could buy a car.
I could buy like two or three [BLEEP]
cars and pimp 'em.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Come over here.
SAM:: Why is she standing on the table?
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Come over here.
OK, you're going to catch me.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: [LAUGH]
That was bad.
SAM:: I don't know what I'm doing.
It's really awkward out there.
I'd say, yeah, I'm messing this up pretty bad.
NICK: Competition might have to take a seat.
Talking to you, Tay Zonday.
BECK: (YELLING) That's right!
whoa!-- take a seat. 'Cause we're coming on to you.
And we're gonna steal it!
We're gonna take it to number one!
We're gonna take it to the top, to $25,000.
KYLE:: We're gonna tear 'em apart.
AMBER: They're never gonna dance [INAUDIBLE].
It looks weird.
KHERINGTON PAYNE: Yes!
BRYAN TANAKA: Hair!
IAN EASTWOOD: White balloons.
FEMALE SPEAKER: Balloons are my favorite.
IAN EASTWOOD: That's good.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Pay attention [INAUDIBLE]!
MALE SPEAKER: That's not going to be part of our dance
routine, is it?
FEMALE SPEAKER: I have not done this in so long.
This is awesome.
