The American Music Awards Performances You've Gotta Watch ASAP
Cardi B broke out her best moves during her performance. (via IHeartRadio)
ICYMI, one of music's biggest events happened last night: the American Music Awards (aka, a chance for the industry's best singers to strut their stuff—usually with a squad of the fiercest dancers around). The show always brings some fabulously dancy performances, but the ones below were our top faves.
Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin - "I Like It"
Never one to shy away from making a statement, Cardi B's performance last night was 🔥🔥🔥. And girl has got some moves. Okurrr, we see that leg lift, Cardi!
Taylor Swift - "I Did Something Bad"
TSwift did something really bad good with her appearance last night. It was powerful, fierce, and featured awesomechoreo. What more could we want? Watch the full performance here (scroll down about halfway).
Dua Lipa - "One Kiss/Electricity"
Dua Lipa's performance spot turned into a full-on dance party and we wanted nothing more than to be a part of it. It was fun, energetic, and featured some seriously cool black-light magic.
Ciara & Missy Elliott - "Level Up"
These music icons never fail to slay their individual performances, but together?! It's almost just too much greatness to handle. The choreo was fabulously futuristic, hard-hitting, and super-precise.
Everyone loves the multitalented Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler. Everyone loves Olympic figure skater (and pop-culture icon) Adam Rippon. Everyone loves when dancers ice-skate, and vice versa. So what could possibly be more lovable than the latest episode of the YouTube show "Break the Ice with Adam Rippon," in which Rippon teaches the sisters Ziegler to skate? (Nothing. NOTHING is more lovable than this freakishly cute video.)
Three of our Insta faves (Jenna Johnson Chmerkovskiy, Robert Roldan, and Gaby Diaz) in one photo!
It's safe to say that we're obsessed with the "So You Think You Can Dance" All Stars. Over the past few seasons, we've loved seeing them up on that "SYT" stage, guiding each new batch of contestants. Unsurprisingly, many of the All Stars are as charismatic online as they are onscreen. While we wait to hear which All Stars will be involved in Season 16, here are six from years past that you should totally be following on Insta.
Sage Humphries rehearsing "White" (Brooke Trisolini, courtesy Boston Ballet)
It's been an eventful few months for Sage Humphries, to say the least. Last November, the Boston Ballet company member made her (very well-received) choreographic debut with a piece called YOU, part of the company's BB@home: ChoreograpHER program. Just one week later, Humphries sustained an injury that kept her offstage for a couple of months. But she didn't have much downtime: Artistic director Mikko Nissinen soon asked Humphries to make a piece for Boston Ballet's first-ever appearance at Boston Calling Music Festival. Now that Humphries is back in the studio, Dance Spirit caught up with her to talk about making ballet rock, working with her composer brother, and what it's like to see her name next to William Forsythe's.
