I probably should just save everyone the time in reading this post because there is only one video here I really want to win (sadly, probably won’t), and it’s the only video here that I haven’t talked about yet. I wonder if I got a little confused before when I was looking at Best Dance video and BEST CHOREOGRAPHY video… since there is a difference. One is a song made for dancing; the other is dancing to the song. Well, that’s my definition. But for the sake of being consistent, let’s just list the nominees.
- Surprise, surprise… Beyonce and her “Video Phone.” She is always a great dancer, but my favorite dance still is from her “Crazy in Love” days.
- Janelle Monae doing the “Tightrope” is who I’m waving flags and banners for. This video is awesome, let alone the dancing she and her friends do in it. The song is hot too and I’m still wondering why I don’t have her album already. Anyway, check out the fancy footwork! James Brown would be proud. Sadly, I doubt it will win, but I can only hope. I would love this award to be stolen from Gaga who is actually nominated thrice in this category. So chances are bleak, Janelle. But I’m here for you.
- Can we just double up the Lady Gaga? I know it’s my blog and all… But here we have “Bad Romance” yet again, as I said before, I see people doing these signature moves everywhere. If Gaga were to oust herself, this video would beat “Telephone” and sadly Beyonce may lose out on this award as well.
- Like Beyonce, we know Usher is bringing killer moves. I’m also repeating myself that I wasn’t as impressed with him in this video… but as I also said… it could just be the song I don’t really care for that’s turning the rest of me off. Regardless of the expert dancing going on in this video, my guess is that it won’t be the winner. I’d be very surprised if it is, though.
