Hope everyone had a good Christmas. :) Sorry the post is late this week, I wasn't feeling well yesterday so wasn't on the computer.

This week's video (and the last one of 2015) is Korean boyband BTS' Hold Me Tight. It's from their mini album The Mood of Love Part.1 which came out in April. Like MONSTA X's One Love, the videos has Korean Hangul, Romanisation lyrics and an English translation.






Hope everyone has a great New Year's Eve. Happy New Year! :)

It's Boxing Day today and I decided to do a Bollywood post because it's fun to have a themed day and I thought Bollywood Boxing Day sounded good! lol. So here is a round up of Bollywood posts on the blog and a few other songs I like. :)

Since it's Christmas Day on Friday this week's video is Christmas themed! It's Ariana Grande's Santa Tell Me. It came out a year ago but I don't recall seeing the video on British musich channels last year. They've been showing it a lot this Christmas.

Santa Tell Me was the 5th single from Ariana's 2013 EP Christmas Kisses (a mix of original songs and covers of classic Christmas songs) and was released in November 2014.






Merry Christmas! Hope you have a great one. :)


P.S. If  you're into Christmas films check out this post I wrote last year about my Top 5 favourites:

Bring It! Video

Posting schedule is slightly behind again, sorry about that. :)

I recently featured dance reality show Step It Up on the blog. In that post I mentioned Bring It!, another dance show. They don't show in in the UK anymore (they only showed the first series/season) but it's still going strong in America, with the 3rd series set to premiere on New Year's Day.

Here's a video I came across recently from the second series where the Dancing Dolls are competing against YCDT Supastarz in a stand battle. In my post on Step It Up I mentioned how I was surprised that YCDT (Young Contemporary Dance Theatre who feature in Step It Up) and the Dancing Dolls were rivals since I thought their styles of dancing were different. But they must directly compete because they're both in this video, lol.

Anyway, here is Part 1 of the stand battle:




Hope you like it. :)

There's also a video here from an episode of Bring It! where you can see the YCDT Supastarz' practice. I didn't k…

Here is Jamie Woon's latest single Sharpness. It came out in September and is from his new album Making Time which is out now. This video is a live recording at Kronk Studios.



Emraan Hashmi Songs

I'm a fan of the Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi and like quite a few of the songs from his films, so I thought I would feature a few of his videos today. :)

First of all here is Aashiq Banaya Aapne from Aashiq Banaya Aapne: Love Takes Over which was probably one of the first films I saw Emraan in. The main playback singer is Himesh Reshammiya and the female singer is Shreya Ghoshal. The story is about Karan (played by Sonu Snood who also acts in Tollywood) who is secretly in love with his friend Sneha (played by Tanushree Dutta). When Sneha meets Karan's old friend Vikram aka Vicky (Emraan) she gets together with him and they get engaged. But when she finds out that Vicky has been seeing other woman she breaks off the engagement. Afterwards Sneha is harrassed and turns to Karan for support.

In this video Vicky and Karan are spending the night together for the first time. Emraan has a bit of a reputation for kissing in films, which isn't common in Bollywood!






Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Lithium by Evanescence. It's from their 2006 album The Open Door and was released as a single in early 2007.

Lithium is one of my favourite Evanescence songs. They hardly show the video on the music channels so I forget it has a video sometimes! lol. Anyway here it is, hope you enjoy it! :)




Step It Up

Sorry this week's post is a bit late, I've been a bit busy lately and got behind. :)

Step It Up is an American reality show about the dance team Young Contemporary Dance Theatre (YCDT) run by Traci Young-Byron, who used to be the team captain of NBA (basketball) dance team Miami HEAT Dancers. The YCDT dancers perform different styles such as contemporary,  hip hop, West African and jazz. Step It Up follows a similar format to other Lifetime shows Dance Moms, Dance Mums with Jennifer Ellison (the UK version of Dance Moms) and Bring It! where every week the dancers prepare to take part in a performance and/or an audtiton. It's currently on Lifetime UK on Mondays at 9pm but I think tomorrow will be the last episode of the current series.

YCDT is based in Miami, Florida. There are two teams, Company and Repertory (the more elite dancers). Much like Bring It! Traci cuts dancers who she doesn't think are prepared for upcoming performances or events. (Not from the school alto…
