Once again I was like I’m not going to type up a review for the show but I end up doing it because it was just that amazing. I don’t know how they do it but every year it gets bigger and better. I remember the first time I went it was more street dance stuff. Now you see more white folks, oriental folks and I could have spotted an Indian or two in the there.
What its about – Up coming dance groups get together and collaborate to a piece of music. Usually mixed songs. And if they don’t collaborate, then it’s a sort of interpretation.
I’ll just get into the bits which really caught my attention.
- Shun and Jacque Price Collective: The guy was mad flexible while the girl was too (for her size).
- Slum Civilians and Emer Walsh: This was very refresing as you see the women in dresses and guys all dapper instead of the usually sneakers, caps and tees.
- Lukas MrFarlane: Apparently some winner of somethings got talent shows or something something. The dude was busting ballet moves in jeans and one sock!
- Turbo: I never thought I’d ever see krumping that moved me so emotionally. I mean apart from the aggressive emotions… this one was deep!
- Final: The last one was so huge I didn’t know what to think. Which brings me to the bad points.
- They tried something new with the lighting and it didn’t work out too well. Either you couldn’t see the moves properly or they weren’t in the light sometimes.
- Some of the performances had too much going on in different parts of the stage so when you see a ‘ooohhh’ move on one side you miss it on the other.
Just some note:
- I saw the guy that wowed me last time and he was just part of the audience but hey it was still great.
- Yellow/Fat Boy/Ricky Norwood/The Presenter: Always entertaining, always funny and he’s got some new jokes too.
The Jay Lamont Compilation … great impressionist
I was so impressed with his bit in Def Comedy Jam. I’ve seen lots of great impressionists but doing and impression of a singer is something else. His Luther Vandross is just sooooo cray cray! Oh and he does sound-effects and beatboxes too.
