Watch Todrick Hall lip sync for his life ahead of Kinky Boots Broadway debut

YouTube sensation, former Broadway performer and current RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Todrick Hall has basically just blown the internet up with his version of a Kinky Boots track.

Lip syncing to Land of Lola, a song that he will sing live on Broadway every night when he takes over as drag queen Lola, he appeared live on the Drag Race runway in front of RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, Ross Matthews and… well, himself.

About to take to the New York stage, Todrick previously announced the news that he’s to take on the much-loved role of drag queen Lola via this custom video…

“We’re so thrilled to have Todrick join the company and get to show off his incredible talent to Broadway audiences,” said producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig today.

Todrick has just finished a sold-out national tour of his show, Straight Outta Oz. He joins a list of former Lola’s in productions around the world including Billy Porter, Matt Henry, Alan Mingo, Jr and Wayne Brady.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price (David Hunter) is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola (Matt Henry), a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Music for the show comes from Grammy and Tony winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, with a book by four-time Tony Award-winner, Harvey Fierstein. Direction and choreography from two-time Tony Award-winner, Jerry Mitchell.

Todrick starts performances as Lola on Broadway, 1 November 2016.
