Weekly Music Video

It was Eurovision on Saturday. I like it watch it every year and vote for my favourite. This year I voted for Latvia. They didn't win, Sweden did with Måns Zelmerlöw's Heroes. I thought the Swedish entry was a good song and they deserved to win.

The Latvian entry was Love Injected and was sung by Aminata. Her full name is Aminata Savadogo and she has a Latvian and Russian mum and a Burkinabè dad (from Burkina Faso in West Africa). She was born and grew up in Latvia.

Aminata has entered several Latvian TV contests and previously entered Eurovision with the song I Can Breathe, which came 5th in the 2014 final. She's also released a song called Leave My Love Bleeding. Aminata is currently studying economics at the University of Latvia and released her debut album, Inner Voice in April.

Here's Aminata's performance of Love Injected at the Grand Final. It's a dancey, dubstep type song, a bit different to the other entries. My favourite part is the chorus. It came 6th in the contest.

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…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
