Bio

This multi-faceted artist came from humble beginnings in Abilene, Texas
and Via Florida found his way to Los Angeles, eventually being named
one of People Magazine’s 25 Hottest Bachelors and In Touch
Magazine’s 20 Hottest Hunks.
In the summer of 2013, Cris joined the judging panel of TV ONE’s
number one entertainment show New Zealand’s Got Talent.
At age 21, Judd became interested in dance. Within a year, he began
dancing and choreographing professionally at Disney World’s
Pleasure Island and then shortly thereafter was chosen as one of the
original Chippendale’s dancers. In 1995 he was hired to dance with
Michael Jackson for the MTV Video Music Awards, which led to his
dancing with Jackson on the Dangerous and HIStory world tours. In
1999, he performed at the Billboard Music Awards with Celine Dion,
the MTV Music Awards with N’SYNC, and in 2000 at the American
Music Awards with Enrique Iglesias and Brian McKnight, and for
“Best Song” nominee That Thing You Do at the 69th Annual
Academy Awards. Judd has also appeared in music videos including,
My Way for Usher, Jump, Jive, & Wail for the Brian Setzer
Orchestra, If I Could Go for Angie Martinez and Tango for Julio
Iglesias.
During this time his choreography career exploded and he was asked to
choreograph the 2000 Tour for Jordan Knight, appearances for
Paulina Rubio, as well as music video’s Ain’t It Funny and I’m Real
for Jennifer Lopez. He also directed the music video, Ain’t It Funny-
Remix with Ja Rule and was the creative director and choreographer
for Jennifer Lopez’s NBC concert special, Let’s Get Loud. He also
choreographed the dance sequences for the film, Bringing Down The
House starring Steve Martin and Queen Latifah and coached Nicole
Kidman during her performance in the film, The Human Stain. In
addition, he composed the song, Alive (his first track), which was
selected as the theme song for the film, Enough. With his one-of-a-kind
personality and soft-spoken demeanor, he was a perfect fit as a
celebrity judge on MTV’s Made, and Lifetime’s Your Mama Don’t
Dance, as well as hosting Dirty Dancing for WE and Bust A Move for
MTV. He also appeared as a celebrity choreographer in an episode of
Keeping Up With The Kardashians with Kris Jenner and on The
Real Housewives of New Jersey with Melissa Gorga. You may also
have seen him crowned the winner, by viewer vote, of ABC’s I’m A
Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in which he donated the $250,000 prize
to the Make-A-Wish foundation.
In 2009 Judd performed in a tribute to the late “King of Pop”, Michael
Jackson, at the MTV Video Music Awards. He was featured in the
dance performance of Scream, alongside Michael’s sister Janet
Jackson and other famous choreographers like Travis Payne, Tina
Landon, Brian Friedman, and Wade Robson whom all worked with
both Michael, and Janet Jackson.
Cris recently choreographed the off Broadway Show “For The Love of
the Glove” with his Creative Partner Bryan Anthony Directed by Julien
Nitzberg.
Cris has been working choreographing multi camera tv shows like
Call Me Kat, Bob Hearts Abilshola, Good Girls, Coop and Cami
Ask the World, Disjointed, Fuller House, Side Hustle, and That Girl
Lay Lay just to name a few.
