Dance Moms Girls Updates- Part 2

Sorry the 2nd post is later this week, I've got behind with things and also been having internet connection problems.:)

Last month I did a post about what the girls from reality series Dance Moms have been up to since the show ended. I  decided to do it in two parts and you can read Part 1 here:

I've decided to do it in 3 parts, so here Part 2 featuring Kalani, Brooke, Paige and Asia. :)

Kalani Hilliker

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is  Ophelia by Leaves' Eyes. It's from their 2013 album and features then lead singer and co-founder Liv Kristine. Liv left in 2016 and was replaced by Finnish singer Elina Siirala.
She is now the official second vocalist for German/Norwegian Midnattsol, along with her sister Carmen Elise.

Ophelia wasn't released as single so there isn't an official music video. This is a fan made lyric video. I believe the song is about the Ophelia character from Shakespeare's play Hamlet.

Eurovison You Decide 2018

Extra post today because Eurovision You Decide, (the UK's contest to determine our entry for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest) is on tonight. They only brought back the option for us to choose our own act in 2016, for a while before that someone just got picked (I think by music executives/industry people).

The 6 entries are Feel The Love by Goldstone, Legends by Asanda, Crazy by RAYA, Astronaut by Liam Tamne, You by Jaz Ellington and Storm by SuRie. You can listen to the songs on the BBC website:

I'll wait to listen to them tonight for the first time, I find it more interesting that way. :) The competition is actually being held in the Brighton Dome this year!! (I live a few miles away). I only found out recently and by then the tickets were sold out.

I can't believe it's only 3 months till Eurovision again! This year's  Semi Finals and Grand Final will be held in Lison, Portugal on 8th, 10th and 12th May. Last year's w…

The X-Files Returns

Sci-fi/paranormal TV series The X-Files is back for its 11th series/season. It starts on Monday (in the UK, it's already showing in in the US). Gillian Anderson (who plays Agent Dana Scully, traditionally the more sceptical agent compared to David Duchovny's Agent Fox Mulder) has announced that she's leaving the show bu I'm not sure if any more seasons are planned.

After a break of nearly 14 years The X-Files returned in early 2016 with S10. I didn't enjoy that series as much, it  just didn't seem the same. My favourite episode though was Episode 3, Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster which featured New Zealand actor Rhys Darby as a strange lizard creature! The last episode (My Struggle II) ended with Mulder and Scully stuck on a bridge as lights from a spaceship came down from the sky. Mulder is seriously ill and in need of stem cell transplant. His only hope is his and Scully's long lost son William, whom they gave up for adoption as a baby to keep …

Today's video is Meera by Raja Kumari. Her real name is Svetha Rao and she's  an Indian American  rapper, singer and songwriter. Also known as "Indian Princess",  Raja has worked with (co-written songs or sung backing vocals for) several well known artists, including Gwen Stefani, Iggy Azalea, Fall Out Boy and Fifth Harmony. Last year she collaborated with American violinist Lindsey Stirling on  the song Mirage. She has been doing Indian classical dance since age 7.

In summer 2016 Raja released her debut single Mute featuring hip hop artist Elvis Brown, and brought out the mixtape Curry Sauce and EP The Come Up that same year. Last year she signed a record deal with Sony Music India.

Meera is from The Come Up which mixes contemporary R'n'B and classical Indian music. The video was uploaded to YouTube on 11th January. Raja is singing and rapping in English and Hindi (think it's Hindi). :)
