June 5,2010. Pilipinas Got Talent Semi-Finals round. It was the 6th and last of all semi-finals. 6 semi-finalists battled against each other for 2 remaining spots at the grand finals. I watched the live competition and disagreed with the female judges’ comments on Imusicapella.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryy7yYNdeG0&feature=related

Kris Aquino says that unlike the other group Baguio Metamorphosis, the boys in the group levelled up with their performance. But Imusicapella’s female members were outstaged by the male members. I totally disagree with this statement. First, I have nothing against Baguio Metamorphosis, they are indeed excellent in what they do. Imusicapella’s dance routine is Unison (Male and female members are doing the same steps in the dance), If she’s referring to the vocal talent, It is so not true. Their conductor Tristan Ignacio is very detail oriented and pays way too much attention to stick-outs (it means one voice sings louder than the rest of the choral singers). Therefore, they are rehearsed to sing the piece according to it’s arrangement. Everybody Dance Now is a piece where most of the lyrics are tied to the female voices while the male singers only hummed the bass part with no lyrics. And because the bass part is the lowest voice, if you don’t pay that much attention to the performance, you may not hear the bass singers. And Imusicapella as a group is battle tested, they are well aware that if one singer sings too loud, it is not gonna sound nice.

Ai-Ai delas Alas says that the boys were great but the female soloist in the Diva Dance part was a little sharp. AiAi can sing but I don’t think she heard the aria part right. The last note was hit as it should be. It was precise.

The male Judge Fred FMG Garcia, on the other hand was very objective with his comments. It is true that what Imusicapella did was 3x difficult. First, Singing in the right tone, second, dancing, and third, singing with no canned music or accompaniment.

It is hard to sing without accompaniment because the song has to start in the right pitch. If the singers sing the first note a little higher than the right note, the soloist may not be able to hit the highest note because it will be too  high for her range.

It is hard to sing while dancing because dancing changes a person’s breathing pattern. Once the breathing changes, it will make it difficult to sing.
I would also like to give credit to the musical arranger of their piece John Pamintuan. Everybody Dance Now is mashed up with Diva Dance from the movie The Fifth Element, I must say it’s genius. How can the judges not appreciate that? Maybe they just have different tastes in the cultural form of entertainment, or they have no taste at all. Anyways, they are the judges and they are just doing their job.

Look at the set of grand finalists, I only liked a few of them, Alakim, Baguio Metamorphosis, Jovit, and Velasco Brothers. Ezra band? I know one acoustic band that would make Ezra Band tumble. They call themselves Frappe Band. I stubled in to their Band leader Chris Obana. I saw their amateur videos in youtube and man, they are as good as recording stars already. Their vocalists have very melismatic voices. Let me give you one of their videos. Anyone who knows good music will agree with me that they are way way better than Ezra band.

See what I mean? I am definitely a fan of this band.

I have always appreciated music. Choral singing is like the most artistic form. It is raw talent at it’s best. Imusicapella raised the bar for choral groups in the country. They did what no other choral groups dared to do.
I would also like to mention this. The kind of dancing that they did is only seen on America’s Best Dance Crew. They have a lot of groups that specialize on these Tuttings like the most recent champion Poreotix. Thank’s to Imusicapella’s very talented choreographer Irwin Samson of the Teletech Bacoor Rave Dancers. He is pure genius, If you are a dancer, you would have noticed that there are 2 knds of tuttings in their routine, the new school and the old school tuttings. They also did some steppin.


If you watch TV, one of the most popular TV series in America today is Glee, where our very own Charice Pempengco is casted in their next season. Yey!!

What they do in glee is similar to what Imusicapella did in their Pilipinas Got Talent auditions and the semi-finals. Their greatest competition in Glee is the Vocal Adrenalin. They sing very well and they dance like profesional dancers in Brian Friedmans jazz masterclasses. But personally, I don’t believe they can really dance like that and sing effortlessly. Their music is recorded I bet. I hope their scouts notice Imusicapella or Frappe Band and invite them as guest competitors in Glee. That would be awesome. They deserve a spot in the show. Just look at their performance, it’s live. No cuts, no second or third takes. If they can do it live, they can definitely pull it off in a taped performance. come on Fox channel. There are a lot of unseen talents in the Philippines. I hope some very powerful people in the entertainment industry notices and gives them the big break they deserve.

Quiet room ep 2

Tags: , ,

Hindi na mapigilan ang paglaki ng call center na itoh, ang dating parang nirentahan kong Quiet room no bags allowed ay mukha nang evacuation center ng mga biktima ng typhoon katrina. at ang lalaki ng mga natutulog ha, para akong nakakita ng cast ng lord of the rings. ung mga Orcs nagttrabaho na sa call center langya naman oh.. idedefine ko ang ibat ibang klase ng snores sa quiet room. sobrang updated ako sa bagay na ito siyempre kasi suki ako ng Quiet room no bags allowed.

 Sai_Duck_by_ToonTwins

1. Saiduck: tunog pokemon pero hindi, this is how one of my teammated described the snore na narinig niya, katunog niya daw si donald duck, parang pato mag hilik ang mokong na ito. tinignan namin siya at tuwing makikita namin siya sa floor ay nag lolokohan kami “sai—duck sai—-duck…”

 

TexasChainsaw

2. Texas chainsaw massacre: well, halata naman sa title diba, dire diretso naman ang accent ng hilik ng isang toh, parang chainsaw, nakaka gulat, nakaka gulantang.. at napaka ingay. pag nakikita naman namin siya sa floor, minumustra namin ang pag hihila ng tali na parang nag sstart ng chainsaw..

 

 dinosour

3. Jurrasic park: oo parang dinosour humilik ang matabang lalaking itoh. my god, para siyang nag trabaho ng 15 hours sa construction ng MOA at pagod na pagod kaya ganun kalakas ang hilik niya. Sinilip ko ang mukha niya para pag nakita ko siya sa production floor alam ko na kung sinu siya. Nagulantang ako sa nakita ko.. andaming residente sa mukha niya, mukha siyang nilalanggam, andaming pimples!! Mahirap idescribe, maihahalintulad ko siya sa isang matamis na pagkain.. Pinipig Crunch.. ganun, maitim na maitim parang chocolate tapos may mga shrapnel pa..

 

godzilla78

4. Godzilla: in short, extreme level ng hilik ni jurrasic park.. pag nakikita namin siya, wala kaming maimustra, tumatakbo kami at umiiwas kasi baka mabugahan kami ng apoy diba, hindi ko naman palaging dala ang bato ni darna. At sinilip ko rin ang mukha ng isang ito, mas grabe pa pala siya kay jurrasic park, para siyang sumugod sa Wargames ng walang suot na mask. Kung si juan tamad ay inabangan lumaglag sa bibig niya ang bayabas, ang isang ito naman ay mistulang nag abang na malaglag sa mukha niya ang Langka, butas butas. Parang isinumpa siya na maging kamukha niya si pinhead ng pelikulang hellraiser. Lugi ka pag hinamon mo ng suntukan itoh dahil mukha na siyang character sa DOTA, na ilang ulit nang namatay at nagpilit mabuhay uli. Hindi naman sa nagmamayabang ako, pero wala akong mga ganun sa mukha ko. Ikumpara mo naman ang Buhay (ako) sa Patay (siya)

 

imagine kung sabay sabay ang apat na ito sa quiet room, nangyari na minsan, ang tagal bago ko makatulog at naririnig ko ang ibang tenants na nagdadabog na, pumapadyak na sa inis at ung iba naman maririnig mo ang “tsk tsk tsk” na parang mga butiki, tunog ng pagka badtrip sa mga orcs. kung pede ko lang ba i suggest na bukod sa quiet room no bags allowed ay sana magkaron na rin ng noisy room.. para dun nalang matulog ang mga nag hihilik na ito, abah lagyan mo ng decibel meter ang kwarto at sasabog un. or umimbento sila ng machine na makakapag convert ng hilik into fuel, edi tumaas ang supply natin at di na tayo mag iimport, matitigil na ang walang katapusang kaguluhan sa kalye in regards to oil price hike. anything basta magkarun ng silbi ang hilik ng mga hampaslupang ito.  tutal kahit maingay sila humilik hindi sila magigising pare pareho, unlike sa quiet room kung nandun sila, abay sila lang ang nakaka tulog ng bonggang bongga at ung iba ay naiiyak na sa kakapilit matulog, mga puyat sa pag ddouble shift pag oovertime, hindi maka tulog ng mahimbing dahil merung mga mahihimbing ang tulog. Or pede rin bigyan sila ng pelikula, “the chronicles of the snorelocks” para hindi na sila sa call center mag trabaho.. just so you know, kung sa iba gawaing tamad ang matulog, sa amin, luxury un, oh diba para kaming mga artista. yan ang buhay namin dito sa office. madami pang kwento lalu na outside the Quiet Room no bags allowed.. siguro next time ung mga eksena naman sa yosi room, comfort rooms, training rooms, game room, break room, lahat yan madaming kwentong entertaining. depende sa kung sino ang nag kkwento, kung kaninong experience, ang mahalaga, we still do our jobs right?

Chapter 1: Quiet Room no bags allowed

 quiet

 

 

Depending on what company you work, it is called many different names. In my previous employers we call it Snooze Box, Wallaby, Sleeping Room, Sleeping Quarters, Fun Room.. Where i currently work, we call it the Quiet Room. I did’nt learn about it until magka sakit ako (flu) on my first day of product specific training. (sa call centers, yun ang training na binibigay sa employees to be ready for the job). My trainer ordered me to go to the clinic, sabi ng nurse inumin ko ang tabs at mag Quiet Room ako. I said “where the F**k is that room?” and magalang naman niyang tinuro sa akin ang daan papunta dun. There it is nakalagay sa pinto “Quiet Room, no bags allowed” pinuntahan ko and i swiped my company ID (sa company namin, ID and pinaka susi para bumukas ang bawat door) and i pushed the door open and tried to walk right in. Bumangga ang ulo ko, then i realized walang access ang ID ko, Great nauntog na ko hindi pa ko makapasok. may guy sa likod ko nag swipe, aba lokong pinto un bumukas.. I asked him “excuse me sir how did you make the door open?” “ay kuha ka ng access card dun sa facilities, iiwan mo ang company ID mo” sabi ng guy. sabi ko naman sa isip ko, langya pwede naman palang tagalog eh, hindi pala strict sa EOP (english only policy) dito. At bongga ang tulugan madami pa pala akong dadaanan na stop over, at para akong naglalaro ng god of war sa psp, bago maka bukas ng isang pinto eh eeffort pa ko mag amazing race sa pag hahanap sa facilities. I learned na kaya iniiwan ang ID is para ma bilang ng company kung ilang oras kang natulog. bawal daw pala lumagpas ng 6 hours na sleep within 24 hours. pag lumagpas ka file note ang katapat, pag umulit ka pa, first written warning, pag umulit kapa, final written warning, at pag umulit kapa, TERMINATION na ang susunod. imagine, makatulog ka lang ng aabot sa 24 hours ay mag hahanap kana ng ibang trabaho. Anyways nakapasok na din ako sa wakas sa “Quiet Room no bags allowed” may 8 double deck beds sa gitna at may 6 double decks din na naka dikit sa wall. madami din diba. ang access card na binigay ng facilities ay may number, corresponding sa bed na designated sayo. makes sense to me, kung ubos na ang access cards ibig sabihin wala na din mahihigaan sa loob. A1, A2 hanggang Q1, Q2. pag 1 sa ibaba ng double deck, pag 2 sa itaas un. at ang taray ng tulugan may CCTV camera pa. To make sure daw na walang mag nanakawan ng gamit, ( anu kaya un bawal nga magdala ng gamit tapos to make sure na walang mananakawan, so redundant diba). So nanginginig akong humiga sa kama ko I2 ang kama ko, nasa sulok, diretsong kitang kita sa cctv camera ang pag mehmeh ko, deadma, masakit ang katawan ko dahil sa flu. pag higa ko ay naginhawahan naman ako ng onti, maya maya pay nakatulog na ako. After a few minutes, biglang nagising ako, napadilat ang mata ko pero hindi ko naman maigalaw ang arms ko, hindi ako makatayo at parang may mabigat na nakapatong sa chest ko. siguro dahil lang may lagnat ako dahil sa flu kaya nag hahalucinate ako. pero gustung gustu ko na bumangon at uminom ng tubig, hindi pa rin ako maka galaw. gumawa ako ng paraan para magising ang katawan ko, nilabas ko ang dila ko at kinagat, madiin, padiin ng padiin hanggang sa wakas ay nakawala ako sa parang tali na dahilan kaya hindi ako maka kilos. Saktong pumasok ang co worker ko at sinabing uwian na daw. Kaya umuwi na ako. kinabukasan ay medyo maginhawa na ang pakiramdam ko pag pasok, siyempre the usual routine, time stamp sa pc, para may sweldo, dun naka base ang attendance eh. tapos check ng email, ang daming spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmmm peste. highlight ko lahat at binura. nagkakagulo na sa kabilang bay, tinitignan pala nila ang email na sinend ng isang employee ng company something weird daw. naku nabura ko na ang email at na empty ang deleted items. so i asked one of them to forward that particular email to me again. there is an embedded image na medyo malabo. pero halatang kuha sa CCTV camera. Shot pala un sa quiet room. May kama, may taong naka higa, at the same bed may batang naka upo. sabi ko “anu naman weird dito? my god you’re so gullible talaga noh” sabi ko.. “basahin mo ung captions” sabi ng isa kong colleague. and it read “this was taken by the facilities lead in the quiet room, an employee sleeping and a ghost of a kid sitting beside this employee” wow sosyal may multo pala sa quiet room. hindi na bago.. nag zoom in ako at nakita ko ang number ng bed. “I2” F**k un ang hinigaan ko kagabi.. the date and timestamp says the date and time na nasa quiet room ako. so ang naka talukbong na employee sa bed I2 ay wala nang iba kundi ang inyong lingkod. I was shocked at nag yaya mag yosi. This was my first time sleeping with a kid.. at ghost pa.. kung kamag anak ko pa ang multo na un patong patong na ang kaso ko sa sadigan bayan, bantay bata 163. hahaha.. I took it so lightly. I tried to sleep in the same bed the following days and the same thing happened to me. So i told my teammates about it. 5x na nangyari sa akin ung hindi ako maka hinga sa bed na yun, when i slept in other beds, mahimbing naman. lalu ko pang na confirm ng marinig ko na kinukwento ng isang agent, na hindi ko kakilala sa kausap nya na binangungot daw siya sa bed I2. Sa kabila ng weird na nangyari sa akin, may nakakatawa namang sequel itoh. Isa sa mga kateam ko ay natuto at nawili na din mag siesta sa “Quiet Room no bags allowed” natsambahan niya makuha one time ang card na I2.. pag gising niya at pag balik sa work station ay pulang pula ang baklang kateam ko. sabi niya “tsong something happened to me in the Quiet room” sabi ko “what? binangungot ka rin?” sinagot naman niya agad sa harap ng buong team.. “no, nag wet dreams ako.. pag gising ko basa ang pants ko, i touched it and confeeeeeeeeerrrrrrmmmed.. protein in the flesh ituh..”” YYYYUUUUUUUCCCCCKKKK” sa bed I2 pala siya natulog.. “ay tsong weird talaga sa bed na un, may moo moo.. ako nga diba binangungot ng ilang ulit.. pero sakin pinipigilan nya ako huminga bakit sayo mukhang nireyp ka ng moo moo? nalaman niya siguro sa aura mo palang na isa kang confirmed na diyosa. hehe” at natawa nalang kami sa nangyari..

 

Itutuloy…

Naging friend ko itong si Cha kasi kami ng housemate kong si Mon ay madalas kumanta sa mga booth na nagtitinda ng magic sing. Isa siya sa mga attendants dun.

Nung makilala namin siya, on the rocks na pala ang relationship niya sa BF niya. Naging tropa namin siya, at dahil may mga bago na siyang friends, siguro lumakas na ang loob niya na hiwalayan na ang bf niya. Napaka higpit daw kasi nung guy at lahat pinapakialaman. Obsessive Compulsive kumbaga ika nga ng mga pasusyal.

Anyway, lumipas nga ang mga araw at masasaya naman kami, palaging kasama si cha sa lahat ng mga lakad ng tropa. Biglang may nagtext sakin at ang sabi “denver salamat sa pang hihimasok nyo sa relasyon namin, kaunting sandali nalang patay na ako, makukuha nyo lang siya sa akin pag patay na ako”

May death threat palang ang papatayin ay sarili parang may mali. dun palang alam ko nang hindi naman kaya ituloy ng guy ang binabalak. ipinag sa walang bahala ko lang. after a few hours may mms na bumulaga samin. Hiwa ang wrist ni gago… kaya pinauwi namin si cha. May nagtext na naman na “kung sino man nakaka kilala sa parents ni Ed, pakisabi nasa hospital siya. andito kami mga kaibigan niya”

bumalik din sa amin at hindi naman daw namatay, hoax pala ang mms na pinadala at gawa gawa lang ang kwento na nasa hospital siya. Kawawa naman si cha. ipit na ipit sa sitwasyon. bakit ganun yung guy na yun, ayaw na sa kanya ng tao pinipilit pa.

sunod sunod pa ang pananakot niya sa amin sa text, kesyo mag sisisi daw kami at nakilala namin siya. naku natawa ako ewan ko kasi gas gas na ang linyang ito di naman nangyayare.

nagtext na naman siya sa amin, “sorry sa mga nasabi ko.. alagaan nyo si cha” ok lang di ko parin pinansin.

Sweldo day na ni Cha at nagpasikat na manlilibre. kukunin niya lang daw ang atm niya na nakasangla sa kanyang supervisor.

Bumalik sa bahay si cha.. galit na galit.. ang nangyari pala, kinuha ng ex bf niya ang atm niya sa supervisor. at ang sabi ay ipinapakuha ni Cha. nalimas halos ang sinahod ni Cha. natira ay isang libo nalang. Ibabalik naman daw niya agad emergency lang. Nasundan pa yun ng mas malaking kamalasan..

“Den last day ko na ngayon sa work. end na ang contract ko” anu ba namang klaseng buhay toh. eh malamang dahil sa amin na halos tumitira si cha eh kargo na din namin siya in some ways diba. Nag umpisa sa pang kain dati.. sumunod na ang pag tulong namin sa kanya na maghanap ng trabaho.. pati pamasahe niya.. mabait naman na kaibigan si cha pero sa sitwasyon niyang iyon, kami na lang ang natitira sa kanya, how can we turn our backs on a friend diba.

Ang cellphone na gamit ni cha ay medyo may laban naman, high end kumbaga, at yun ay binili ng ex bf niya. na galing din sa inipon na sweldo niya. umeksena na naman si ex at ang sabi “kukunin ko na yang cellphone mamaya” itong si cha may katangahang taglay at ang sabi sa amin “mamaya wala na ko cellphone, kukunin na ng ex ko” nag init ang tenga ko at di ko napigilan sabihin sa kanya na.. “ang bobo mo naman!! bakit mo ibibigay iyan eh galing yan sa ipon mo.. at yung pera mo nga hindi niya ibinabalik tapos kukunin niya yan phone? sino inuto niya? ikaw lang ang nagpapa uto ng ganyan kapag ibinigay mo yan..”

sa ngayon andito siya palagi sa bahay, chat ng chat, tambay mag hapon. hindi ko alam kung ano ang sasabihin sa kanya. ang last yata na sinabi ko sa kanya ay imbes na mga chat sites ang inuuna niya ay maghanap siya ng trabaho online. Parang patapon na siya ngayon.. Hindi kasi naka tapos ng college kagaya namin kaya hindi ko matulungan makapasok sa company namin. plus hindi pa siya katalinuhan para makalusot sa mga interview sa mga call center.

Ano pa kayang pede namin gawin? nabibigatan na din ako sa pasanin. ayoko naman maging masama na wag nalang pansinin na tuwing kumakain kami sa bahay ay nandito lang siya sa harap ng laptop at nag hahanap ng makaka usap kasi wala siyang pang bili ng pagkain.

Ang walangyang ex naman niya hindi namin masingil dahil may bago nang syota na siyang sumasagot sa mga tawag namin.

ang huling text ni cha sa amin “pasensiya na kayo pati kayo nadadamay sa problema ko”

hay, sa totoo lang hindi lang naman siya ang may problema, ang mahalaga meron siyang mga kaibigan sa mga ganitong panahon. pero hanggang kailan ganito?? sana matapos na para sa ikabubuti ng lahat.

August 9, 2009 the first episode of Americas Best Dance Crew season 4 is aired apparently but I only got to see it in the official MTV website.

 

All 9 crews were amazing. I was actually hoping to see a lot of Asian dancers and I only saw a few of them. There are a lot of interesting performances because every style is unique, but what makes a performance “Unique”?

 

Today’s 2 most awesome dance shows are So You Think You Can Dance which is on the 5th season and America’s Best Dance Crew in its 4th season which I want to talk about. SYTYCD is amazing because you can be sure that the contestants are highly technically trained in their own styles and it is a partner dancing show. ABDC on the other hand interests me more because it is more on the group dancing category.  Every group gets to choreograph their own dances while the show gives them the music.

 

Over the past 3 seasons, I have seen a wide variety of dance styles from B-Boying (Breaking), Housing, Tutting, Waving, Isolations, Krump, Funky Jazz, Smooth Hiphop etc. On every Style, there is a specific Group that seems to own it.

Quest_Crew_027

When you say BBoying, Supercrew and Quest Crew owns it. This is one of the most athletic styles because dancers do all the most difficult stunts like flips, windmill, butterfly, shablam. These stunts are not to be done at home especially if you are not trained for it because you’ll break your bones if you do it wrong.

Personally, I think Quest Crew is a powerhouse team. First, they have 3 members who are previous finalists of So You Think You Can Dance. Ryan from the first season, Hok and D-Trix from the third season. Their routines are very artistic because each member has his own personality and that their personalities are brought together on the dancefloor by their passion and discipline. I honestly think that on the first episode of ABDC season 3 alone, they will be the champion.

 

 

 

jabbawockeez1

Waving. Jabbawockeez is like the most famous crew from the show. All their performances were theatrical, entertaining, and very synchronized. They are famous for the mask and the waving style. From the word itself, waving; they make all sorts of movements where they look so fluid and clean, and I’d like to call it liquid dancing because when you look at it from afar, it seems like their arms don’t have any bone or they are liquefied. I will never forget when Shane Sparks told these guys.. “you just set the standards, for the next ten seasons”. Kid Rainen, Chris, and Phil are Filipinos, that makes me extra proud. I remember their guest performance on ASAP, a local Sunday noontime TV concert, they are superb, even JC from NSync said he could’nt pick on them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

fyshnchicks

Housing is popularized by Fysh n Chicks. This is where they do synchronized jumps left and right, front and back. Every now and then combined with head throws from left, right, front, and back. It’s like a happy go lucky dance but it consumes a lot of energy for sure. They are a very strong group of female dancers from the first season. I think Taeko teamed up with Yuri from Kaba Modern and they have a show they called “the Yuri and Taeko Show”.

 

 

 

 

kabamodern

Isolations are most popularized by non other than Kaba Modern. In this style they do all the small movements with every part of the body imaginable. They do small intricate movements with their heads, arms, neck, elbows, knees, almost everything. Individually it would not be so impressive but what makes it more interesting is when they do it as a group. They are also the group who brought back the “Tutts” where a group does all small  movements with the hands forming shapes like triangles and squares without moving all the other body parts. My favorite performances from them is the Technologic, and the G-Slide.

 

Funk jazz; There are so far, 2 crews for me that’s best in this style. They are the Fanny Pak and Artistry in Motion.

 

vma-fanny

Fanny Pak blew season 2 with their stylish routines. The style is funky and jazzy yet they brought their own flavor to every performance. You can see that every member is technically trained in jazz because of their lines and the spins and turns, leaps and extensions. What makes them stand out is the genius of the choreographer who dares to be different in creating their routines. The do all sorts of weird and odd movements that you won’t expect to see from a dancer. Bringing it all together makes those routines award winning.

 

 

 

 

Artistry-In-Motion-050837

Artistry in Motion on the other hand is very swift and does all the trained styles incorporated in one routine. I only have seen one performance from them and boy can they really dance. They incorporated lyrical, contemporary, ballet, jazz, hiphop in one high octane performance. Their lines are beautiful, the leaps and jumps are very clean. And the other thing with this group is their speed. Jazz is very hard to do as a group because dancers need years of training together to be synchronized totally. Add that up to a very fast routine will surely take a lot of talent and flexibility. I think their choreographer is Donyelle Jones from the season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance. She’s actually gained weight basing it on what I saw. But she is an amazing choreographer for bringing a really hot routine with so much energy. Too bad they had to let them go after the Beyonce Week.

 

 

vma-soreal

Smooth Hiphop is definitely owned by SoReal Cru from the second season. They landed on second place in the finals. Their style is so unique because they bring smooth, sexy and intricate movement in their routines. If Fanny Pak brings that odd trained style, SoReal brings the street, sexy smooth cool movements. Those moves where you will still look cool and cute even if you do it alone. This crew is just very charming, they made history in the show by being the first crew to never be in the bottom 2. Of course its all because of the votes of the viewers. There are a lot of crews who are more athletic than them but the show is about being different, and this is where they stand out the most. I think they are all Filipinos, that’s why they are my favorite.

 

Vogue-Evolution-049348

One fresh style that I saw today is the Vogueing.. At least that’s what they called it in the show. Vogue Evolution is the first all gay crew to make it to the television show. Okay here’s what they do, according to them, vogue is comprised of different elements such as hands, spins, dips. They battle in underground clubs with this style. The movements in this style are so big, daring, and painful if I may say because they do all these jumps and then land on their backs with one leg bent backwards. Lil’ Mama called it “macayella” I’m really not sure if i spelled that right. I think it is because after kicking so high, the dancers fall on their backs which is already painful, and with the leg bent backwards could possible break that leg. Their style is definitely unique, a whole new genre has just emerged. Full of energy, technique, and style. I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it before, I think they went home after the bollywood challenge.

afroborike-3912heroes

In the end Afroborike and We Are Heroes battled out and We Are Heroes made history by being the first Female Crew to take the golden trophy. Good job to these girls, they truly deserved it. It would not hurt if Afroborike won because they are equally talented and entertaining to watch.

Afroborike are the experts in partnering and in latin dances. We Are Heroes are the popping queens.

 

You may check out the full episodes of all 4 seasons by logging on to www.mtv.com season 5 will be on January 2010, I’m so looking forward to it.

Welcome me..

Hi everyone It’s me Denver, I am creating this blog for personal and professional purposes.
