Weekly Music Video

This week's video (or song since there isn't a music video) is Moments by Camilla Kerslake. She is a British/Kiwi classical crossover singer who was the first artist to be signed to Gary Barlow's Future Records.

Camilla took contemporary singing lessons since she couldn't afford classical but was later able to take classical as well. She recorded a demo CD which she repeatedly sent to Gary Barlow and he ended up singing her! In November 2009 she released her debut album Camnilla Kerslake. Since then she has released a second album called Moments, sung the National Anthem at a Wembley Stadium football match, performed for England Rugby Union matches and starred on stage in the West End in Les Miserables. She has also performed with Andrea Bocelli, Il Divo and Russell Watson.

In June 2013 Camilla took a break from her career after her mother became ill with breast cancer. Her mum recovered and Camilla went on to campaign for the Royal Marsden hospital and Breast Cancer Campaign who helped her mum get better. She also released a cover version of the song You Raise Me Up which featured classical group Blake and the Sing 2 Beat Breast Cancer Choir which she and her mother founded. Camilla's third album is scheduled for release this summer.


Moments is from the 2011 album of the same name. It's one of my favourite songs from the album. :)

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!
