SYTYCD winner Joshua: “I want to be a recording artist”

So You Think You Can Dance 4 winner Joshua Allen may have won the Fox dance competition, but he also has aspirations better suited to those who appear on American Idol.

“Overall, I want to be a recording artist. I want to be singer,” he told the Fresno Bee. But he won’t give up dancing. “I still want to push my dancing career. And I believe if you want to be a good dancer, you have to be well-rounded. You really have to know your stuff. At an audition, they might want a hip-hop dancer who can do pirouettes,” he said.

Joshua is currently dancing on the show’s national tour, which The Los Angeles Times reviewed and said “had the celebratory, experimental feeling of kids partying when their parents go of town.” The paper says that, of all the finalists, “Gev Manoukian was the one who left the audience in stitches. Gev’s unrequited love for dance partner Courtney Galiano was a running joke on the TV show, and Gev continued his pursuit over the course of the stage show. As always, Courtney rebuffed him. The audience was so charmed by Gev, in fact, that Courtney’s rejection of him elicited the only boo of the evening.”
