Jason Mraz Wants to Share Stage With “Think You Can Dance” Duo
One of the most memorable routines from Season Five of So You Think You Can Dance was the sensual, passionate contemporary routine set to Jason Mraz’s “If It Kills Me” (check out the clip above). The number was choreographed by former contestant Travis Wall and featured this season’s champ Jeanine Mason and Top Eight finisher Jason Glover.
Mraz tells Rolling Stone he was “absolutely moved” by the clip, which his parents alerted him about after they caught it on TV — so much so that he’s trying to get the pair to perform during the Chicago stop of his tour next week, where he’ll be filming a live DVD. “I woke up in bed the other night going, ‘I have to get that couple to dance!’ ” Mraz says, revealing dance is “another little guilty pleasure” of his. “I really long to be a great dancer. Whoever I choose to be my one true love has to be a great dancer. What a great way to build a relationship with someone — going to dance classes every so often and really improve your partnership.”
No word yet on if scheduling will allow the performance, but Mraz’s DVD is slated to hit stores this November. In the meantime, his Cafe Gratitude Tour will continue across the U.S. through October, and his hit “I’m Yours” is on the verge of making chart history. If the track stays on Billboard’s Hot 100 through August 19th, it will officially beat LeAnn Rimes’ “How Do I Live” as the longest-running single on the chart.
