I’ve come to refer to Bryan as my TV crush. Check out his audition and wait til the very end – he is more than just a handsome face – he is a bit of a practical joker and very funny too.

Joshua Sasse, Kylie MinogueFans of Kylie Minogue will want to set their DVRs tonight to see the season 2 premiere of the campy  musical, Galavant, at 8PM ET. Galavant, played by Josh Sasse, is punished by the Queen (a.k.a. Kylie Minogue). You’ll love the catchy ditty she sings in the video I’ve included below, “Off With His Shirt!”.

The video has so many gay references it will make your head spin, including a shirtless Galavant tending bar to a clamoring mass of men and Kylie singing playful lyrics you’d expect to hear in a Ryan Landry or Varla Jean Merman song.

Don’t be shy boys
Go to town
I’ll bet that chest
Is heaven blessed
