Dance Videos

It's been a while since I've posted some dance videos and also I'm going to a belly dance show tonight, so I thought it would be good to do another dance themed post. :)


First up is a belly dance fusion choreography to the song Tareefan from the  upcoming Bollywod film Veere Di Wedding, starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor (also known as Sonam Kappooe, she is the daughter of actor Anil, and I think she and Kareena are distantly related), Swara Bhaskar and Shika Talsania.

 It's performed by Team Naach, a dance duo made up of Nicole and Sonal.

New Jennifer Lopez Music

Sorry the post is later this week, I've had some computer trouble. Hopefully it's sorted now though. :)

Jennifer Lopez has some new music out. The songs are in Spanish and will likely be on her upcoming 2nd Spanish album, Por Primera Vez (For the First Time).

First  up is the video for El Anillo (which translates as "The Ring". It was released digitally on 26th April.

P.S. On Saturday I watched Eurovision. I have often liked Turkey's entries but they haven't taken part for several years, due to disagreement with competition changes. My favourite was Cyprus with Eleni Foureira's Fuego and I voted for her. She came 2nd and the winner was Isra…

Selection of Eurovision Songs

Eurovision is here again! Last week I did a post called Countdown to Eurovision! which you can read here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/05/countdown-to-eurovision.html


As mentioned in that one, this week I'm doing a more in depth post.

The 63rd Eurovision Song Contest  Grand Final will be held tomorrow, Saturday 12th May in Lisbon, Portugal,  due to Portugal's win last year with Salvador Sobral'sAmar Pelos Dois. It was the first time Portugal won. :)

The UK's entry is SuRie with Storm. This wasn't my favourite song in the Eurovision You Decide competition, but of course I hope she does well! You can watch the music video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K--kIdOpbJM

Now here is a selection of Eurovision songs from the previous year's contest and this year's. :)

Weekly Music Video

Today's video is One Kiss by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa.  The single was released last month and I included the lyric video in April's New Music/Videos post , but the music video has come out at the beginning of this month.

One Kiss is the 2nd single from Calvin's 6th studio album, yet to be released. It has a nice, summery vibe.
