Season 3’s Hokuto “Hok” Konishi earned an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Choreography for LMFAO f/ Lauren Bennett & GoonRock’s “Party Rock Anthem.” The summer hit features Hok’s fast-paced and up-beat “Shufflin’” choreography. Hok not only choreographed the video, but he dances in it alongside Season 1’s Ryan Conferido. The Season 3 b-boy has tough competition though–two of the other four videos nominated in the category include choreography by past So You Think You Can Dance choreographers–Brian Friedman (for Britney Spears’ “Till the World Ends”) and Laurieann Gibson (for SYTYCD Guest Judge Lady Gaga’s “Judas”).
The VMAs take place this Sunday, August 28.
Good luck, Hok (and Brian and Laurieann)!
