Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Let Me Love You by Ariana Grande featuring rapper Lil Wayne. It's from her 3rd album Dangerous Woman which is due out on Friday (20th May). This is my favourite song on the album so far. :)




Check out this post to listen to two other songs from the new album: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/new-ariana-grande-songs.html




P.S. I watched Eurovision on Saturday. I missed the first hour due to my belly dance group's show but I recorded it and watched the beginning over later. I was back just in time to see my favourite act, Dami Im (Australia) and voted for her again. (I voted for her in the 2nd Semi-Finals on Thursday). The winner was Ukraine's Jamala with 1944. While Australia was my fave, I also really liked Ukraine; it was one of the 3 current songs I mentioned in my pre-Eurovision post on Friday which you can read here: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/current-eurovision-acts-nostalgia.html

I also liked Israel and thought they would have done better than they did. Hovi Star is a good singer. It must have been frustrating for Australia because by the jury's results they came on top, but by the televoting they were 2nd! Russia won the televote but Ukraine must have come on top with the overall score.

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

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.



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…
