On Tuesday night Paula Abdul premiered her new talent show Live to Dance, and since she is/was a professional dancer herself, she has lived the ‘live to dance’ mantra.
Post American Idol life brings a new body of work for Paula Abdul to judge and she and her partners in (critic) crime are giving their two sense on the arts of moving bodies rather than moving vocal chords. So who is along side Paula Adbul to give their insights, opinions and sometimes strong emotional reactions to the dancers on Live to Dance?
They are choreographer, Travis Payne, and Pussycat Doll, Kimberly Wyatt.
39 -year-old Travis Payne most recently made headlines for his work with Michael Jackson. He was the choreographer on Michael Jackson’s last – uncompleted – project This Is It and he went on the be an associate producer of the film of the same title. Along with Michael Jackson, he has also worked with the likes of En Vogue, Salt-N-Pepa and Janet Jackson.
Twenty-eight year old Kimberly Wyatt was made famous by being one of the Pussycat Dolls. But she left the group in 2010 to start her own band Her Majesty and the Wolves. Their first album comes out later this year. But this isn’t the first time she’s been in the judge’s seat. She had been a judge on the show Got to Dance, the British TV show that Live to Dance is based on.
What do you think of the choice of judges? Will they be fair? Will they do a good job? And will they be entertaining?
