Welcome to the Top 12 performance show! We have switched up the partners again and the dancers are ready to give it their all for your votes Canada. Leah hits the stage and introduces our judges for the evening. Jean-Marc Genereux, Tre Armstrong, Blake McGrath, Luther Brown and the hottest tamale of them all, Mary Murphy. Leah reminds us all of Season 4 auditions starting right away so if you’re interested, start practising. Okay, lets begin. First up, Janick and Denys.
They are paired up for the Paso Doble with Natalli and Francis from Season 1 of the show. With Denys being in his genre, he helped out Janick a lot. So lets see if it paid off. The stage is COVERED in rose petals and Janick’s dress is gorgeous and Denys is the ultimate matador. They both have fire in their eyes as they move across the floor in their first sequence. Denys does a jump to the front I could have lived without, but they carry on and end in a great left with Janick upside down. Practise made perfecrt.
Here’s what the judges said: Mary said it was terrific, strong and dramatic. Luther said Denys is the strongest male ballroom dancer he’s seen on the show and is so proud of Janick. Blake says Denys is his favorite and Janick is also one of his favorites as well. Tre said hands down excellent and great way to start the show. Jean-Marc thanks the choreographers and is so happy with the performance.
Here’s what I think: Denys is one of the strongest males on the show I agree and Janick is a beast. I think this was a great start to the show and these two will be safe for sure.
Last night was epic! If you didn’t watch the Britney Glee episode, you don’t know what you’re missing (or maybe you do and you’re just purposefully being that person that doesn’t want to do something because everyone else is). Regardless, it was a success. I was laughing my ass off AND I was blown away by Heather Morris who was KILLING IT in her Britney Spears routines. Heather Morris was one of the top trending topics on Twitter in the United States and WORLDWIDE and in the United States last night. That episode has brought her career to a whole new level & I wouldn’t be surprised if SNL came knocking on her door next. Imagine being her, dancing to Britney (with Britney on set), in Britney’s costumes, seducing John Stamos in a chaise. I mean, really?! Does it get better?
In comparison to the Lady Gaga and Madonna themed Glee episodes, Britney proved Stronger in terms of getting more viewers to tune in. I enjoyed the episode much more than the Gaga/Madonna ones, but I will admit that it did help that Britney did make some cameos in the episode, whereas Madonna and Gaga did not.
New York recording artist, Chase (otherwise known as Michael Chase DiMartino) has just informed me that he’s released another delicious song/video called “Hard Candy“. The song us just as catchy as the last one I told you about, “Nasty Habit,” but the sexuality and hotness factor went through the roof with this video. Actually, there’s two videos – a part one and two. If you read my last post, you may remember that Michael Chase DiMartino is also a Sign Language interpreter. He started making videos on YouTube, remaking hit songs like Bad Romance, etc., but in sign language. Then, he went onto creating his own. With the release of this video, Chase has discussed a little about his sexuality. He starts off by saying:
“Gay? Who me? Not such a big issue to me. I don’t believe music has a gender. It has no sex. The art of music does not differentiate between its gay or straight counterparts. For myself, I identify as gay only because it seems to be the most …easily explained, and also, more readily accepted. But if I were to break it down, I would say this: ‘I truly believe myself to love a person for who they are. Gender unattached. I believe that if the right female came along, I could fall in love (and have, with women in the past). But as it stands right now, I am in love with one who happens to be a male.’ “
Good grief. The 22 year old is my favorite Jersey Shore girl, but I really don’t think she needs a BOOK DEAL! Seriously? Jersey Shore’s Snooki (AKA Nicole Polizzi). The novel will be called “A Shore Thing,” and it will be published by Gallery Books in January 2011.
The editor-in-chief of Gallery Books asks, “Who better than Snooki to write a fun, sexy novel about a single girl looking for love on the Jersey Shore?”
And there you have it: The scandalous, slutty, shorty from the shore is going to be an author. I’m sure all those real authors out there are thrilled to welcome her to the book club.
Lucasfilm announced today that all six of the Star Wars movies will be returning to theaters to follow the trend in 3-D films. The first film to hit the screen will be Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, which will be released sometime in 2012. Wowsa, this is gonna take forever to get through all six of them.
The conversion to 3-D is being handled by an outside company, headed by visual effects supervisor John Knoll. He informed Variety, “Having seen a lot of stereo material, I have very strong opinions about what I like and don’t like about stereo. It’s not going to look like [conversions] we’ve seen in the past.”
The video for Shakira‘s “Loca” was just released today, and it is hot, hot, hot. In the sexy city of Barcelona, Spain, the Columbian superstar shakes her hips & roller skates all around town among fans, even ending up in a water fountain, in her guerilla style video. The video was directed by Jaume de Laiguana, who also directed her “No” and “Gypsy” vids.
A shirtless Dizzee Rascal (Rapper who has four #1 singles in his home, the UK) puts on his own spin as he raps in the video on the beach.
A source told The Daily Star that, “The lyrics of Loca are about Shakira being crazy so she wanted a video that really showed her personality”. You may have heard that last month Shakira was fined by Spanish authorities for dancing in the fountain without a permit.
At last, the heavily promoted Britney Spears finally aired last night. So how was it? “Ooops, they did it again“, Ryan Murphy delivered another entertaining episode. It wasn’t as good as last week, but I enjoyed it. Not sure if it was because of the storyline or just my tremendous LOVE for Brittany S. Pierce. While the artist-centric episodes are fun to watch, I much prefer the episodes where the performances are based on different musical acts.
Besides Miss Britney Spears making three surprise cameos throughout the episode, the show featured the debut of John Stamos as Emma’s new hotto dentist boyfriend and the return of Will’s ex-wife, Terri. Stamos is 47-years-old, but still as tasty as ever. That salt-n-pepper thing really works for him.
The episode titled “Britney/Brittany” also marked the singing debut of Heather Morris’ Brittany. Considering she’s a dancer first, her voice wasn’t bad. Definitely at the same level as other noted dancers who later became singers, like Paula Abdul and Jennifer Lopez. Glad to see the producers finally dedicate an entire episode on Brittany. Once again, she was on fire with her signature random one-liners.
Britney Spears even tweeted while watching the episode. I’ve placed a few of her tweets after each performance. The rest of her comments can be found at the end of the post.
DAY-UM, Heather Morris (Brittany) has a smokin’ body. And don’t even get me started on her dancing. Glee’s Brittany can dance circles around the other Britney. PS. How lucky was she to straddle John Stamos during her routine. This is the first time we’ve heard Heather sing and she surprised me. She’s actually not half bad. Probably auto-tuned to death, not much different from Miss Spears herself.
Britney’s tweet: “Slave: Oh…My…God…!”
Britney’s tweet: “I know how hard it is to dance with that snake! Nice job….”
Michale Buble does Justin Bieber. No, not that way. Get your mind out of the gutters. The Canadian crooner pays homage, slash pokes fun of the Canadian tween sensation. Bieber isn’t the only one, Buble impersonates for his “Hollywood” music video. Clint Eastwood, James Dean and other Hollywood stereotypes are other personas Buble takes on.
“The video is about celebrity culture, people’s dreams about fame and what can go with it,… You can see what fun I had playing the characters.” – Michael Buble
The track is not as catchy as his “Haven’t Met You Yet” single or video, but it’s still very peppy. “Hollywood” is making a decent showing on the Billboard charts, especially the AC one. Buble is his usual charming self in the video, and it’s great to see his comedic side. His Bieber costume is pretty bang on. Thanks for giving me an idea for a Halloween costume this year.
