Black Gold Shines

So…you know that farewell song everybody loves? “Shine” Rush by Black Gold?

Well, it turns out they’re playing in New Orleans, where I live, tonight and I’m going to talk to them after the show.

Let me know if there are any burning questions you’d like answered. There’s only a few hours, but I’ll check back before I leave for the show.

SYTYCD S7: Twitter Follow Up

So during the Twitter Round Up, there were some things that were going on that I thought, “well that’s interesting… what’s going on here…” So I did some digging… and here’s what I came up with.

Brian Friedman on America’s Got Talent?

As it turns out – he was Consulting Producer on America’s Got Talent last season, which means it sounds like he’s likely going to be working on AGT this season. Where the frack have I been?

So that begs the question… how does Mollee Grey fit into all this? I guess time will tell.

Jonathan Platero signs with Ballroom with a Twist

This show first opened in Wilmington, Delaware with various alumni from DWTS, SYTYCD and High School Music. The headliners included Dmitry Chaplin and Chelsie Hightower. Since then they have been slowly touring the country with a rotating group of dancers and guests and hosts.

After some digging I found out that there are tickets available for a July show in Hershey, Pennsylvania and an August show in Detroit, Michigan.

Janette Manrara dances into Burn the Floor

Well duh! I’m so blind! Janette is heading to London to join up with the cast of Burn the Floor at the West End as first reported by SYTYCDism. Just goes to show how big the rock I’ve been hiding under is.

I Written By

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)
