Back in the day, one of my favorite pastimes was recording videos on Yo! MTV Raps and then playing them back in slow motion so as to memorize the dance steps. I even convinced DY to learn "the Kid 'n Play Kick Step" with me, which we triumphantly performed in front of amazed crowds of fellow teenagers more than once. I also would make Nerdy P and our respective younger brothers learn choreographed moves during family get-togethers. Next came dance routines as a cheerleader and then performances for variety shows in my sorority while in college.
The show airs Thursday nights at 10 PM EST, but they are playing a ton of reruns all of the time, so check the web site I linked to above if you are interested in catching up. I would probably break a bone or throw out my back if I taped the show and then tried to learn the dance moves at this point in my life, but it is highly entertaining nonetheless.
The lame thing is that Randy Jackson was nowhere to be found on the episode I watched. Why do they have to have his name in the series' title, then? Egotistical much? The irony is that now that we've seen Randy attempt to groove with his guitar for about 2 seconds in Paula Abdul's new video, we know that he's not much of a dancer. Sorry, but I gotta keep it real, dawg!
