Paula Abdul solicits dancers for her new CBS show

On Twitter, Paula Abdul is soliciting dancers for her new CBS dance show:

yes dancers i still want your innovative, most creative BEST! BRING IT!Apply 4 my new dance competition show@ www.PaulaAbdulDanceShow.com

Here’s info on the website, where you can apply:

Paula Abdul is teaming up with Reveille Productions to produce an ALL NEW dance show on CBS! We’ll be searching across the country to find dancers that not only have talent, but the drive and passion to push themselves to the top.

Paula is looking for talented, creative, diverse and unique dancers. She’s looking for Solos, Duos, Trios & Groups of ALL STYLES, ALL AGES. If you have the love and passion for dance like Paula, then check out how you can be a part of her new show by clicking here!

Paula will also be back on the season finale August 29 of “Drop Dead Diva,” who taped her episode in Peachtree City the day before Carrie Underwood got married here in Georgia last month. She will be in a dream sequence again, her fourth time on the show. (She loves it here!)

Early numbers from Hitsdailydouble say Fantasia’s new album was doing better than expected today so all the publicity is helping her.

i think you’re right Harm, i just got through watching my dvr’d AGT… Anna & Patryck, Grimm, Poppyc@@k, and…. i dunno, maybe arcattack or antonio restivo (both because of their LV-ish lavish set and performance. I think that PP was absolutely INSPIRED to do Queen tonight. That was entertaining and VERY VERY well done, imho. And i just absolutely adore Michael Grimm’s bluesy soulful voice, even WITH strep! (sorry Howie–wear a freaking mask if you’re so germaphobic!)

wait we get 5 acts going through to the top 10 …. hmmmm maybe both Arc and Antonio will make it. Hard to say. But it’s the end for the lovely inspiring sisters, for the funky kids (loved howie’s comment that it wont be so cute when they’re 36), sorry to see the rock wall dancers go but tonight WAS boring… and i could do a LIFEtime without that weirdo. And unfortunately the other male singer, what’s his name? he just didn’t do it, especially after seeing Michael Grimm’s performance.

Harm, I think Rodney won’t have any trouble blogging from Destin. Mexico was what made it difficult the last time….and, I imagine, Mrs Rodney insisting that American Idol NOT interfere with their honeymoon.

I hope Paula does well but I’m not sure this will work. So many dance shows out there.

Oh my….I just realized how early it is. Had to get up early cuz Scarlett found a way through the fence yesterday and I had to help hubby fix the fence this morning so I don’t have to spend the day chasing her all over the neighborhood. In the meantime, Maggie will get x-rayed tomorrow morning to see whether all the efforts to give her a working leg have been successful.

Bringing back Joke Wednesday (with a special shout-out to Skanktasia):

Guy walks into a bar, and the bartender says, “Boy, I didn’t expect to see you today, after last night—you were really bummed out.”
And the guy says, “I was so bummed out that I went home and looked in my medicine cabinet. I had a big bottle of a thousand aspirins in there, and I decided to kill myself by taking them all at once.”
The bartender says, “So what happened?”
And the guy says, “Well, after the first two, I didn’t feel so bad.”

Still can’t get exited about Paula’s dance show. How’s it going to be different from all the other dance shows out there?

Good Morning Everybody.

Today’s Quote: “Most everything improves with age and practice.”

I will agree with some of you on the dance show with Paula that it may not fair as well as she wants due to the other dance shows. Having said that, people do like her and the show just may be a great hit. I most likely will watch it for the first couple of weeks because of her,

Highlander, I like the second joke better. I think we should bring back joke Wednesday. We had some really good laughs when we had it before. So everyone let’s see your jokes and make someone laugh!!!!!!

Not really a joke, just more of a funny quote, but this one is my new favorite diet quote:

A guy goes to the local church to apply for a job as bell ringer. The odd thing is, he has no arms.

The priest asks him, “How do you plan on ringing the bell?” The guy says, take me up there and I’ll show you.

They climb the stairs, and when they get to the belfry, the guy says, “Watch this.” He then runs over to the bell and slams into the bell – face first.

“GONNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG”

The priest is so impressed, he hires the guy on the spot.

A few months later, the Pope comes for a visit. The guy is sooooo excited, he decides to give it everything he has.

He runs… full speed… into the bell.

As a loud “GONNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG” fills the air… the guy – who hit the bell too hard… is dazed. He stumbles backward… and falls out of the tower… plummeting to ground below.

The assembled crowd makes way for the Pope as he comes forward to minister to the man. He administers the Last Rites, then turns to the priest and says “Who was this man?”

The priest looks at the lifeless body before him and says…

“I can’t remember his name… but his face sure rings a bell!”

Two guys are disagreeing about the pronunciation of “Hawaii.” A stranger walks by and one calls out to him, “Hey, sir, how do you pronounce “Hawaii” — is it Hava-ii or Hawa-ii?”
“Hava-ii” the man replies.
“Hey, thanks, Buddy,” says the argument winner.
“You’re velcome.”

A guy gets hire at a bank… and does great in his job. The branch manager is impressed with his ability to handle numbers.

He asks, “Where did you learn how to do all this?”
The guy answers back “Yale”

“Yale! That’s impressive replies the manager. What’s your name?”

Good morning. linny, in case you peek in today, I agree about Michael Grimm and Prince Poppyc0ck. Love, love, love that Prince! Could he have been any greater in that Queen bit last night? He will rock Vegas if he wins. Poor Taylor, he really did not compare well to Michael Grimm, and unless he has a great fan base, he will be gone this time.

Paula? Love her! Another dance show? Not so much.

i have to admit i was stunned that neither ArcAttack NOR Antonio Restivas went through — hubby said that, when the judges were told they had to pick at the end, they should have unanimously said “we pick Restivas” … i love both connor and christina and ali, but i do not think either of the heart-wrenching backstory acts should be in the finale. Nice for the girls, but they’re NOT the quality that should make it that far. and either of the other acts would be great in vegas.

OH! and speaking of great in vegas, WTG Recycled Percussion!!!!! I loved them when they were on, and they have SO improved their showmenship!!! (yes, i know, usually showMANship, but since it’s a group of them, not one, i decided to try it that way). I enjoyed Fallon also, but ended up ff’ing through the same-ol-same-ol female singer BS guest. bleh.

and sweet that Christina Young had a reunion with her estranged Dad, maybe that’s the whole reason she made it through — her song choice last night (poker face lady gagme>? BOOOO!) was not only unfortunate, it was obviously killer. for her. and she would have done so well with some rockout power vocals! (think benetar, jett, slick. and a few others) oh well.

oh wait…american idol…. well…ex-AI…. i think Randy Jackson presents (Dance Crew) is quite good when i remember to look at MTV or whatever it’s on; cannot imagine that paula will have anything unique and exciting to add to the dance competition world, except that it will be, according to the story,. not just solo dancers, but pairs, groups, etc, and any genre. sounds like it will be a little bit like an expanded version of the CarryAnne Inarbour (sp?) versus Bruno dance wars of a couple of years ago. meh. we’ll see.

Good Morning Everybody.

Today’s Quote: “Always treat family like friends and friends like family.”

I knew without a doubt that Prince Poppyc0ck and Grimes was going through. Was surprised that Antonio didn’t and the sisters did. Glad that Taylor didn’t make it, as I thought his kite flying act was really boring.

Rickster

August 26th, 2010

Morning, all.

As far as AGT goes… very surprised that Antonio didn’t make it. Not surprised that the Prince and Michael Grimm did. (Personally, I thought Michael was the best song, vocally, of the night. The Prince, however, got my vote for best show of the night.)

I wasn’t shocked that Arcattack didn’t make it. Maybe what Piers & Howie said was true, their act didn’t translate well to TV. They never fired me up.

And Christina is one of the most beautiful (inside & out) ladies I’ve ever seen. And she’s a GREAT big sister.

Glad Future Funk didn’t make it.

Boobs!

Jasmine Trias, she got the Hawaii contingent to vote for her, but I agree, the best singer, she was not.

I personally thought that Christina was weak vocally, but not as weak as her sister. Why they were put through and not Antonio is beyond me. Nana, the kite flyer was Conner, I think. Not Taylor. Maybe I’m wrong. I’m sure with all this talk of boobs that Highlander will be here shortly. LOL

Was very surprised to see Antonio not make it through. Was not surprised about ArcAttack to be honest — I would love to see them in person one time, but they are the type of act that gets old after a few times seeing them. Neat stuff with electricity, but not electrifying. ;-)

Michael Grimm and Prince P were a given.

I love Michael, and think Prince is an amazing performer and has a beautiful voice, but let’s be honest — everyone is just fighting for second place. Barring a “Poker Face” type song choice, or a voice stealing sickness, JACKIE EVANCHO already has this competition won.

Rosita, the censors know when you use the word “boobs” and want it to mean idiots, they allow it in.. They also know when you use the word boobs and mean breasteses, so they censor that one.

Not so fast, Mike! Remember that everyone was saying Susan Boyle had BGT wrapped up last year from the moment she finished her audition. She finished second.

And one thing last night’s result show shows, Sharon Osbourne can no longer use the phrase, “America always gets it right.”

No way Antonio shoulda gone home. But it may be better for him. I’m sure that there’s a Vegas hotel that’s getting ready to close a long-running show and looking for a replacement.

Rickster

9:39 am

Just me, but I did not think Taylor deserved to go through. And, certainly Antonio did. He thought so, too, and was completely blindsided by the vote-off. You could see the surprise in his face. It was almost a Chris Daughtry moment. The girls are only prolonging a vote-off. The competition is too strong. The Prince is head and shoulders above most of the competition and should win, if it is based upon talent and Vegas-ready act.

linny, I am with you on the Recycled Percussion act. They made it to Vegas in spite of being voted off last year. You are absolutely correct about their improved showmanship/menship, too. And a show at the MGM Grand is a huge consolation prize.

Good morning boob fans.
