Today's video is Thinking It Over by Liberty X. They are a British/Irish group formed by the contestants from reality show Popstars who didn't make it into the final group Hear'say in 2001. The members are Kelli Young, Kevin Simm, Michelle Heaton, Tony Lundon and Jessica Taylor. The group were originally called Liberty but they had to change the name to Liberty X due to legal issues.

Liberty X released their debut single Thinking It Over in September 2001, followed by their debut album of the same title, in May 2002  They went on to have longer more successful careers than Hear'say,  releasing 3 albums (Thinking It Over, Being Somebody and X) and 12 singles (including Thinking It Over, Doin' It, Being Nobody- with Richard X, Jumpin and Everybody Cries) altogether. Their most well known song is Just A Little, which was No 1 on the UK Singles Chart in May 2002.

The band split in 2007 (although they did a one-off gig in summer 2008). But then in 2012 they reunited for the TV show The Big Reunion, which brought together 90s pop groups to do a tour. Some of the other groups were 5ive, Blue and Atomic Kitten. After performing in The Big Reunion arena tour, Liberty X split again but they announced last year that they've signed to new management.

Liberty X were one of my favourite groups. I don't know if they're planning to release anything in the future but I'd be pleased if they did bring out new music. :)

Thinking It Over got to No 5. It was released when the group were still called Liberty.

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)
