Kent and LoFro's Prom #Rewind

June 12, 2015

If you were asked to recall the greatest routines of “So You Think You Can Dance” history, there’s a good chance Travis Wall’s “Collide”—aka “The Prom Piece”—would make that list. (OK, so it didn’t make our list. But, to be fair, we had 11 seasons of brilliant material to sort through.)

Just in case you need a refresher—lbh, you want a refresher—here are Season 7’s Kent Boyd and Lauren Froderman in “Collide”:

That smooch, though. Boyd and Froderman ended up being the equivalent of Prom King and Queen for “SYT” Season 7, with Lauren taking the title “America’s Favorite Dancer” and Kent following close behind as runner-up.

What’s the purpose of this #throwback? Yesterday, Boyd dropped his long-anticipated video, “Collide in 1986.” Basically, he took the idea behind Wall’s “Collide” and did a big ol’ rewind on it. The result: an adorable 12-minute video that takes us back to prom in 1986.

Naturally, Boyd enlisted the help of Froderman for this project. She plays the popular yet sweet girl with the jerk boyfriend. Boyd plays the endearing dork who happens to lose all awkwardness once he hits the d-floor. What happens next? Well, I don’t want to spoil it for you. See for yourself!
