    "So You Think You Can Dance?" fans...

    Hey to any and all fans of the TV series "So You Think You Can Dance?"... I could use a second opinion on something I spotted recently.

    I was sitting on my butt being a lazy couch potato, spacing out to the Disney Channel, when the music video for the Hannah Montana song "The Other Side of Me" came on. Suddenly I spot something that seems a bit strangely familiar. I can't place it, so I keep watching, closer this time. There it is again... there's something about one of Hannah's background dancers. One of the guys... he looks familiar, but I'm having trouble placing where I might have seen him before.

    I saw the music video again a few hours later, and that's when the lightbulb clicked. (-->)...

    You guys tell me. I have here two pictures: a video capture I pulled from a YouTube.com video, and a picture from the "So You Think You Can Dance?" website. I know the youtube one is low-quality, but it's the only pic I could find from the music video. Here's a link to the video too, in case you want to see the whole thing. http://youtube.com/watch?v=UafS4oy7ybM

    Is Hannah's backup dancer on the left...


    ...Ivan Koumaev, the "hip-hop specialist" from SYTYCD? season 2?


    Opinions???

    Aha! Found it!

    According to Wikipedia:

    Koumaev was born in the Far East of Russia. He has one younger sister. He moved to the United States when he was 7, and grew up in Seattle, Washington. During a September 2006 interview on the U.S. program "Ellen, Koumaev stated that he had become interested in dancing at the age of 11, when he watched the movie Breakin', after which he went to a studio and sought training in hip-hop style.
    He attended Aliso Niquel High School though he left in his senior year to pursue a career in dancing. While at the school, he was a member of the school's selective dance-related club, "Dance Appreciation". He has also been a member of "Cruz Control," is the captain of the "Team Boogiezone Breed Company," and has appeared in a Disney Channel Hannah Montana music video, along with local Seattle programs such as "Battle of Seattle" and "Sign of the Times."

    I thought I recognized that face from somewhere!
