Usher Forgets His Moves

UsherUsher forgets his own dance moves. The "OMG" hitmaker admits some of his choreography is particularly complex and he doesn't always get it right, even though he helps create his own routines.

Speaking about the routines he has created for Kinect for Xbox 360's forthcoming game Dance Central 3 - which features his tracks "OMG" and "Scream," he exclusively told BANG Showbiz, "Of course I get my moves wrong. In the process of making it, you know I had to create moves that were harder, so those moves were a little bit more complicated, and the combination of all of them together sometimes does get a little bit hard."

Despite admitting the routines are difficult, Usher thinks working on the game has been a "really great" way to work with his fans - particularly as it means they can do so without having to be "embarrassed" by doing so in public.

50 Cent Exploring the Dance Genre

50 Cent

50 Cent, who previously claimed that hip hop is “dwindling away,” has already started to record a dance album inspired by club music he’s heard while touring Europe.

“I went to a nightclub after party. It was different music after a while. The music they were playing before they were playing the music I created was more up-tempo, more dance,” he explained. “I wanted to make a song like that, so I went into the studio. Because I’m traveling with my live band, I took the band with me and we sequenced it and recorded the actual record while we was out there.”

The “Baby By Me” rapper said he hopes the new record - working title Black Magic - will show his full diversity as an artist to people.

“I won’t allow myself to be placed in a box where I can only do one style, or do one kind of music,” he added. “They should expect the unexpected on this one. If they can understand how I enjoy different genres of music and different styles, for the people who have various tastes in music, they’ll really like it.”

Even if you didn’t last night, chances are you’ve seen the internet sensation that inspired the video above.

Shortly before Jim and Pam said “I Do” (for the second time), the guests at their wedding danced down the aisle to Chris Brown’s “Forever.” (We later learned that Jim purposely planned a Plan B for their nuptials the minute he saw that YouTube clip.)

If you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere, you can watch the original version after the jump.

VIDEO: SYTYCD Rocks The White Stripes


In case you didn’t see last night’s results show, you missed what I thought was one of the best group numbers in quite some time.

Even after repeated viewings, this routine to The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” (choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon D’Umo) still has me pumped.
