About Todrick Hall

American Idol semi-finalist and judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Todrick Hall is no stranger to the spotlight. The singer, choreographer, and producer’s knack for theatrical mashups of pop tunes set in fantasy worlds have resulted in videos like “Britney and the Beast” and “Taylor in Wonderland” netting millions of views each on his YouTube channel. He went even bigger with his goals in 2016, finally seeing his long-awaited Straight Outta Oz project come to life, as both an extravagant visual album posted to YouTube, and as a live show that toured across North America throughout the summer. Not one to rest on his laurels, Todrick is back and starring on Broadway as Lola in Kinky Boots.
