Many of the 13 members of blacklight dance and performance group Fighting Gravity returned to Virginia Tech to complete their degrees after the group placed third on America’s Got Talent in 2010. The group continues to perform across the country.

Rayvon Owen of Richmond finished fourth in the 14th season of American Idol last year. In February, he released the single “Can’t Fight It.” 

After his stint on season 9 of The Voice last year, 20-year-old Richmond native and singer-songwriter Evan McKeel released his new single “Always.”

Kendra Todd, winner of The Apprentice in 2005 and a Virginia Beach native, formed real estate company the Kendra Todd Group in 2009 after a move to Seattle.

In 2006, Travis Wall, who is from Virginia Beach, appeared on the second season of So You Think You Can Dance. He placed second, and has since remained with the show as its choreographer.

American Idol contestant, R&B and pop artist Elliott Yamin, who grew up in Richmond, will tour North America beginning this month following the release of his album As Time Goes By in Japan last November.
