Holy SH*T folks, the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance is just around the corner, and yes, I will be back in the driver’s seat bringing you all the AMAZING performances and recapping each episode complete with weekly performance videos. I was curious as to the official date so I think it’s safe to assume that there are a few loyal readers who are also wondering the same thing, and could quite possibly be as excited as I am…

Well the wait is over, as the season premier really is just around the corner (and with that means another amazing summer of dance-on-TV)! Fox will be airing the two-hour, season-seven premier of So You Think You Can Dance on Thursday, May 26, at 8pm, 7pm central.

New Releases Out This Week: April 11th

In: Charge It, Movies, Music, Tyrell

I have to admit, I had no idea who Jessie J was until her groundbreaking performance on SNL. Her songs Price Tag and Do It Like A Dude began instant additions to my iPod playlist and now with her full album Who You Are being released this week, I cannot wait to check out more from this English singer.

The album has already been released overseas with high critical acclaim and now, us over here in North America will be able to reap the benefits of Jessie’s hard work. The US Version of the album contains 13 tracks with a bonus Who You Are acoustic track.

Another notable track is the Dr. Luke produced Abracadabra that is super radio friendly and ready for the top down this summer. Other tracks on the album are little more deep if that is what you crave from the vocalist but I highly recommend checking this album out. She’s going to be one to watch.

More new releases after the jump.

If you’ve been missing the star of The City since it the show didn’t return after last season, you’re in for a treat as the star, Whitney Port sits down for a “Table For 2” with awkward funny, man Jonathan Daniel Brown. In this Funny or Die video, the two head to Pink Taco in Los Angeles for dinner, but Port soon realizes this guy has ulterior motives. Sidenote: If you recall, Pink Taco is where they cast of The Hills used to go for their dates as well, so I guess Port is missing her old hangout.

Watch the video and see their dinner date fall apart as the night goes on. You even get to see Whitney’s jaw dropped “O” face. Also, check out waitress. She’s also hilarious.

Rihanna & Britney Team Up For S&M Remix

In: Music, Patrick

After tweeting back & forth about it, Rihanna and Britney Spears have delivered on a collaborate together. They’ve just released a remix of S&M. Britney taps into her, raspy voice to get into Rihanna’s hit S&M. Here are the lyrics Brit sings for her solo:

“Just one night full of sin / feel the pain on my skin
Tough, I don’t scream mercy, it’s your time to hurt me
If I’m bad tie me down, shut me up, gag and bound
Cuz the pain is my pleasure, nothing comes better”

I have to say, I love these two together. It’s kind of unexpected, yet perfect at the same time. Did you know that “Umbrella” was originally written for Britney Spears, but she turned it down? The song turned out to be Rihanna’s biggest single and one of (if not the) hottest song that year. Give their S&M duet remix a listen below!

TV Backtalk: “Body of Proof” For SHAME!

In: Adam, TV Shows

Recently I covered HBO’s attempt to OFFICIALLY translate a brilliant piece of fantasy from the novel to the tv screen and was thrilled to see a favourite series made “real”. When I saw “Body of Proof” pop up on I was instantly excited to think that the infamous Kay Scarpetta Series might have gone the same way as the “Song of Ice and Fire” books. Boy, was I in for a surprise.

Sadly, this adaptation IS “based on” (though not officially) Patricia Cornwell’s dozen plus writings, but what drove me insane was the question of: “How well did the translation go?” Basically, the “good” people at ABC decided to rip this best seller set of novels about a sassy and childless medical examiner, Kay Scarpetta, who solves every murder that comes across her slab all while cooking fabulous Italian meals and fighting off the anger and flirtation of the men in her city. So, when I flipped on “Body of Proof” (ugh, an attempt to allude to without breaking any copyright laws Cornwell’s second novel: “Body of Evidence”) and found the storyline completely bastardized, I was disappointed to say the very least.

Beyonce has joined Michelle Obama’s “Move Your Body” campaign to fight childhood obesity. In an effort to get youngsters to get up and move around, the R&B singer has reworked one of her singles for the cause. Queen B has given “Get Me Bodied” new life and renamed it to “Move Your Body” and also given it more relevant lyrics. Since kids love to imitate dance moves, Beyonce enlisted longtime collaborator Frank Gatson Jr. to come up with new dance moves to compliment the new lyrics.

I’ve embedded two videos below revolving around Beyonce’s involvement with Obama’s health and wellness initiative. The first of which show Beyonce giving her thoughts on the campaign, while the second one shows a bunch of kids working out the choreography. Even though I’m obviously beyond the intended demographic, I’m going to learn it as well. I love me some fun choreo. Hopefully I’ll shed a couple of pounds along the way. LOL.

Organizers for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London want a high profile music star or band to perform a specially commissioned Welcome Song at the opening ceremonies. In the running is singer Joss Stone and rockers Muse, but another UK rock band is at the top of their list… Coldplay.

According to a source at the daily mirror, they want Chris Martin and his band to the most and are pulling out all the stops to try and get a hold of the right people to make it happen. Coldplay is not only popular in the UK but has world renowned success making them very appealing for a televised audience of over 2 billion.

The group is currently one of the biggest stadium rockers in the UK and the organizers think their anthem-like style of music would be perfect for an occasion such as the opening ceremonies and to be honest, I couldn’t agree more. Coldplay’s music just has that inspirational feel that would make the song memorable and a worldwide hit.

Old School Flashback: Lou Bega’s Mambo #5

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

“Ladies and gentleman… this is Mambo Number 5.” Those words ring so clear for many of us as we remember the one-hit wonder that was Lou Bega. I can recall being at wedding receptions or clubs and hearing those words ring out over the speakers and suddenly everyone was on the floor ready to dance to that annoying yet lovable song.

Lou Bega is a German musician with an Italian and Ugandan background. His first (and mostly only hit), Mambo No. 5 was a remake of a Perez Prado mambo instrumental and when it came out, that style of music was all the rage. He had it made. The track peaked at Number One on charts worldwide but only managed to hit #3 in the US. The single also double, triple and quadruple platinumed in some countries.

So where is Lou Bega now? Well, he’s still recording music with his latest album titled Free Again being released last year. It charted only in Switzerland and peaked at 78. Poor fella. His last single to hit the airwaves was Sweet Like Cola. You’ll have to check out the not-so-sweet video below.

Check out Lou Bega’s videos after the jump.
