Ciara's 'I'm Out' video: 15 dance moves that you, too, could do in the shower

ciara-im-out.jpg

Sitting perfectly still while watching Ciara dance in videos counts as working out, right?

Upon repeat viewings of the new video for Ciara’s “I’m Out” (featuring Nicki Minaj), I’ve realized that the choreography here is not as aggressively unachievable as the dancing queen’s usual fare. A lot of the moves are mere poses that YOU could do — and have probably already done — in the shower! Friends, it’s time for a body party. A guide: READ FULL STORY

'SYTYCD' Nappytabs opening number: Best ever?

sytycd opening number june 25 2013

That is certainly a bold claim, but the opening number from Tuesday’s Top 20 performance show (full recap here) was such a treat. I still can’t type the moniker “Nappytabs” (or walk by Tabitha and Napoleon’s urban dancewear store in North Hollywood) without feeling weird about it, but anyway, the duo choreographed a superbly shot (in seemingly one take! …but not) behind-the-scenes routine, set to the perfect snazzy song — “Puttin’ on the Ritz” by Herb Alpert feat. Lani Hall. The judges, SYTYCD All-Stars, and some choreographers make cameos.

It has a very Xanadu/”All Over the World”-esque vibe, which I know is like the opposite of a ringing endorsement, for sane people. But I promise, it’s so good: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel wants to 'Channing All Over Your Tatum' -- MUSIC VIDEO

Channing-All-Over-Your-Tatum-clip.jpg

Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel debuted a music video for the vaguely explicit slow jam “(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum,” featuring White House Down costars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, along with Miley Cyrus, Olivia Munn, and Gabourey Sidibe. Don’t blink or you’ll miss the Matt Damon cameo. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Love Hewitt is all woman in 'Client List' music video: WATCH!

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Lifetime series The Client List returns March 10, and once again, she’s promoting the show with a sexy music video. This time, the “BareNaked” singer belts out “I’m a Woman” clothed in fringed lingerie. The track was produced by Randy Jackson, the video directed by Matthew Rolston, and the moves, we assume, inspired by Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera (circa Burlesque), and Channing Tatum’s spinning dubstep Magic Mike routine combined with the wet Flashdance number. So, in short, very original!  READ FULL STORY

Inaugural Balls: The Obamas and Bidens dance, but so do Piers Morgan and Chris Tucker

The Obamas had their first dance to a Jennifer Hudson cover of “Let’s Stay Together,” and the Bidens were serenaded by Jamie Foxx singing “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” But there was another dance to watch during the inaugural balls: That of CNN’s indoor coverage, which had to juggle politics and a party. The tone was set early when Piers Morgan and Erin Burnett tried to interview San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Rep. Joaquin Castro while Rihanna’s “Please Don’t Stop the Music” blared in the background. Ultimately, Piers just gave up:

Piers: By the way, I’ve never met any Latino that can’t dance, so are you guys gonna be — [Julian and Joaquin laugh and say he just met his first two].

Erin: Pierce’s first highly inappropriate comment of the evening.

Piers: That’s not inappropriate. I never have.

In case you were wondering, I’d say Piers’ second inappropriate comment came when he segued from a taped interview with performer Stevie Wonder to a live chat with the Black Eyed Peas will.i.am by referring to him as “almost as big a legend now in the music world as Stevie Wonder.” READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Hudson had the honor of serenading President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama as they shared their first dance at the Commander-in-Chief’s Ball following Monday’s inauguration. The First Lady makes her entrance in a Jason Wu gown at 2:45 in the video below. READ FULL STORY

PSY finally learns how to Dougie -- VIDEO

We all knew this time would come: PSY, who introduced the world to Gangnam Style, has finally learned how to Dougie. Dance worlds have collided! The year 2010 and 2012 have become one!

The always-dapper PSY was taught how to Dougie (taught, taught how to Dougie) by New.Music.Live.’s Lauren Toyota during a recent interview. PSY’s swagger and erratic arm gestures weren’t up to par, but his “Doug E. Fresh” move more than made up for it. Let’s just say he added his unique flare to the mix. It looks like supermodel Kate Upton and gymnast Gabby Douglas have some competition for the gold.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson gets surprise birthday serenade from Boston Gay Men's Chorus -- VIDEO

Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet went all out for his costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s birthday on Oct. 22. He arranged for the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus to surprise Ferguson onstage. Over half of the 195-member strong ensemble showed up on roughly three hours’ notice. The surprise starts at 2:30 in the video below. Following “Happy Birthday,” the chorus performs Katy Perry’s “Firework” (3:40). You can see why Ferguson is a recurring guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance — he picks up simple choreography quickly. His reaction at 6:00 when the guys get creative with “come on, let your colors burst” is the real reason to watch this. We won’t spoil it for you.  READ FULL STORY

Watch Sofia Vergara dance at an Emmy afterparty -- VIDEO

Because you didn’t get enough gratuitous shots of Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara during E! red carpet show over the Emmy ceremony itself, TMZ has footage of her celebrating at the HBO afterparty by dancing to Gloria Estefan’s “Conga” while women nearby chanted “Sofia! Sofia!” (Presumably, the men were rendered speechless — or praying that she would suffer another wardrobe malfunction like she had 20 minutes before Modern Family earned its third straight Best Comedy Emmy.)

My favorite part of the video is around 2:30, when the guys playing the conga drums — it’s okay if you don’t notice them until the third time you watch the video — start loosening their ties and taking off their jackets as the music changes to Enrique Iglesias’ “I Like It” and Vergara gets her second wind.

YouTube sensation Psy teaches Britney Spears 'Gangnam Style' -- VIDEO

Even a hitmaker like Britney Spears isn’t immune to the wacky allure of Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” Spears is on record as a fan of the Korean star’s catchy tune and sick dance moves — something that Ellen DeGeneres didn’t miss when the new X Factor judge visited Ellen yesterday afternoon. (Side note: Remember when Ellen was an American Idol judge?)

Soon enough, the host pulled out Psy himself, who proceeded to teach Ellen and Britney how to Dougie the finer points of Gangnam Style. The main takeaway: “Dress classy, and dance cheesy.” Done and done!

By gamely dancing along, Spears proved that she still knows how to move — even in five-inch heels. Check her out:
