Today it's Too Close by Blue. They're a British boyband consisting of 4 members, Lee Ryan, Duncan James, Simon Webbe and Antony Costa. The boys formed the group in 2000 and released their debut single All Rise and album of the same name in 2001. They were kind of an updated Another Level! Blue were one of my favourite bands. :) My fave member was Lee and I liked Duncan as well.

They brought out 2 more albums, One Love (2002) and Guilty (2003) before taking a break in 2005. Some of their most successful singles were All Rise, Too Close and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word featuring Elton John. In 2009 the band reformed and went on to represent the UK at Eurovision two years later. Their latest album is Roulette (2013) and they were part of The Big Reunion last year, a reality TV series about old pop groups reforming.

Too Close is my favourite Blue song. It was the 2nd single from All Rise and became their first No 1 single when it was released in August 2001. The song is a cover of the 1997 single by American boyband Next.*

*I haven't heard that many of Next's songs, I don't think they were that popular over here but I really liked Wifey, which is similar to Too Close. "Will you be my wifey?" lol.

This week's video is Love Lies by  Khalid featuring Normani (from American girl group Fifth Harmony). Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!
