SYTYCD videos and ABDC connections: Samara Cohen, Virgil Gadson

sIt looks like So You Think You Can Dance is going to be the summer series to watch for fans of America's Best Dance Crew. Virgil Gadson of Phresh Select made it to the Las Vegas round on the show -- click here to watch his performance. We think this is the first time that an ABDC alum went on to the second round on SYTYCD, though we know it's gone the other way with SYTYCD alums later appearing on ABDC (e.g., D-trix and Hok of Quest, Brandon of Dynamic Edition, PacMan of IaMmE, Donyelle of Artistry in Motion). And, here's the audition appearance from wacker Samara Cohen. Thanks for the tips, MichaelC.,Altern, and DirtfaceX!
