ABC’s popular dance competition, Dancing With The Stars just concluded its 16th season. Aside from crowning American Idol‘s Kellie Pickler and dance partner Derek Hough as the winners, the finale featured performances by Psy, Jessica Sanchez, and Pitbull.
Psy showed off some dancing skills of his own with his performance of his hit single “Gentleman”. Of course the Korean performer brought along his impressive backup dancers decked out in gold pants and all. Slowing down the pace, Jessica Sanchez performed her rendition of the Pitbull and Christina Aguillera hit “Feel This Moment”. The Filipino-Mexican artist sang her own touching balled version of the normally upbeat song.
Check out the performances below and let us know which one is your favorite!
On March 22nd and 23rd, stylists filed in one by one to Space 905 for the Simply Stylist Event, organized by Caro Marketing. Here, celebrity stylists, bloggers and magazine editors came to view the collections and meet some of the rising designers. The chic guests, which included two-time Emmy Award winning costume designer Soyon An and fashion blogger Jenny Wu, chatted with designers and representatives of different brands to get a better understanding of each line from which they could feature or pull pieces.
I mean, seriously — Bristol Palin??? I’d expect it from Levi, but it seems Bristol out-Levi’d Levi on this one.
If it weren’t for Margaret Cho, I’d completely ban Dancing With the Stars from my TV. Thank goodness Ms. Cho found time in her busy schedule between touring for her new CD Cho Dependent and her role in Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva to do Dancing With the Stars. I’ll watch just to listen to her sure-fire comebacks to judge’s criticisms.
I am telling you. There is something going on with Asian Americans and dancing.
Everywhere we turn, there is an Asian American making a name for him- or herself in dance.
Need further proof? Filipina-Hawaiian-Russian American Nicole Scherzinger just won the 10th season of Dancing With the Stars.
She follows in the footsteps of fellow DWTS winners Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno. And of course who can forget the Jabbawockeez, Kaba Modern and all the other Asian American winners and finalists in MTV’s hit America’s Best Dance Crew.
Hear what some of the top Asian American dancers have to say about this growing phenomenon in our feature story “The New Rhythm Nation” by Teena Apeles in our upcoming Summer issue, out next week!
