5 Videos To Watch This Week On YouTube!

Hi everyone! 🙂

It is that time of week again. Here is my five video suggestions this week:

Music

Turntables is an amazing song and music video by Janelle Monáe. It really captures our times when we are mostly all doing our best to protest against racial inequality and against oppression. It is truly wonderful and thank you Janelle for this. It is incredible. 🙂

911 by Lady Gaga is a great tune to dance to and the music video is really creative.

I have recently been listening to a lot of Rina Sawayama’s music and it’s amazing. Here is her amazing track and equally amazing music video XS.

Dance

This performance by Matthew Richardson and another equally talented male dancer is so beautiful, romantic and well put together. Performed at The Arrow Live at the Carre Theater for the Circle of Live Event, we have stunning music from The Irrepressibles with Arrow.

History

In this wonderful video, the history of the amazing Statue of Liberty is told. A true queen of America. 🙂

5 Videos To Watch This Week!

Hi all! It is that time of week again. Here is my five video suggestions this week for you all to watch. 🙂

Music

Here is a classic. So many of us have danced to Whitney’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody at many a party but here is the video which is equally as amazing and as vibrant as the track. Very fun.

From a classic to what I would consider a modern classic. Clown by Emeli Sandé is so beautiful, touching and I relate a lot to the lyrics. The video, like the song, is very thought-provoking and is perfect.

Dance

Francisco Solá and Lucrecio Robledo dance the tango here brilliantly with wonderful passion. Absolutely stunning.

Theatre

This is the cast of the theatre version of Sister Act starring the absolutely incredible Patina Miller as Deloris Van Cartier/Sister Mary Clarence. An amazing performance of Raise Your Voice on The Paul O’Grady Show.

 

Animals

This short clip is of a young miniature horse running about chasing the guy with the camera and looking super adorable. Love this clip. 🙂

It’s that time of week again y’all! 🙂

 

Music

Billy Porter and cast and crew of Pose joined together to do a special version of Love Yourself. A lot of fun, I dare you not to start dancing to this! 🙂

 

A classic music video here from a-ha with Take On Me. Amazing animation.

 

Dance

This dance is great. Like a scene out of a film or a TV show. It might be actually. I’m not sure but I think it’s great anyway. I love Tango and I love it even more when it’s done well and it’s done very well here by the two women. And the 1920s outfits are absolutely gorgeous.

 

History

In this video, we learn about the aftermath of The Great Fire of London in 1666. I found it very interesting. It was something I heard about of course but I didn’t know much about it and this was a great introduction to look further into this period in history.

 

Relaxation

Relax and enjoy a haircut this week courtesy of RIVER ASMR. Super relaxing!

Week 3! Here is my five video suggestions this week! 🙂

Dance

This is a very momentous moment in Irish Entertainment history. I present to you The Riverdance from Eurovision 1994:

 

Music

Hozier’s Take Me To Church music video is so emotive and highlights so much that needs to be highlighted. Not an easy watch but a brilliant and powerful video.

 

Social Issues

In this heartbreaking video, singer and former X Factor UK contestant Misha B talks about racism she experienced on the show and how it impacted on her mental health.

 

 

Relaxation

To help relax you and rid you of stress, here is a great ASMR artist Sarai from Peace and Saraity ASMR. In this video, Sarai helps you to relax with a variety of sounds. Each sound is given a certain amount of time and the descriptions of the sounds go up underneath so you can find any helpful sound easily which is very helpful. Very relaxing.

 

 

History

The following video from Weird History talks about the murder of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865 and the aftermath of the murder. Very interesting and concise.

 

Eurovision’s Greatest Hits!

Tonight I watched Eurovison’s Greatest Hits. It was really fun. 🙂 Presented by our very own Graham Norton and Sweden’s Petra Mede, the night was a trip down Eurovision memory lane with performances from Johnny Logan, Riverdance, Conchita Wurst, Dima Bilan, Loreen, Brotherhood Of Man, Dana International, Nicole, Bobbysocks!, Lordi, Natasha St-Pier, The Olsen Brothers, Rosa Lopez, Anne-Marie David, the Herreys and Emmelie De Forest. The acts also performed together at the end. Graham also spoke to first winner of the contest Lys Assia and we had Eurovision memories scattered throughout the night. Also I must mention the style which me and my sister were discussing during the show. Conchita Wurst’s purple dress with a cinched in belt at the waist was stunning. Also loved Nicole’s Stevie Nicks-esque look, Dana International’s amazing outfits especially her performance outfit for Diva which had a whole hippie flavour to it, Loreen’s gothic outfit (Seriously that girl knows how to do gothic! :-)) and the girls in Brotherhood Of Man’s chic androgynous looks. Also it was wonderful to see Dima Bilan. I have a long-time crush on that man! 🙂

Look at some photos from the event below:

Caroline And Pasha Flow To Victory With Elegant Showstopper!

Caroline Flack and her dance partner Pasha Kovalev seen off competition from fellow finalists Frankie Bridge and Kevin Clifton and Simon Webbe and Kristina Rihanoff to win Strictly Come Dancing 2014 tonight!

The duo claimed the Glitterball trophy after an elegant, artistic showshopper as well as two dances from the series and in the process broke records as the first ever contestant to score 40 for all three of her dances in the final.

Following her win the TV presenter said:

“This is the best feeling in the whole world. This has been the best experience in my whole life. This has been a complete bonding experience for everybody and it’s been so lovely.”

Mark Wright and his dance partner Karen Hauer finished fourth earlier in the evening.

I was for Frankie and Kevin throughout the show but Caroline and Pasha were really good too so they are deserving winners. Well done to both! 🙂
