I have no idea what is going on in this video of a Japanese guy dancing. I feel so completely lost that I tried to use Google Translate to figure out what was going on. As you can see, that was no help what so ever:
Hold my stuff. I can do this. Not.
No one should try what this gymnast manages to do in this video, because you will pull, sprain, or tear a muscle. Or, worse: lose a limb.
Some people’s flexibility and gymnastic ability is just plain scary. It’s insane to think people can actually move like that. It actually terrifies me that a human body can do things like that. Coming from someone who almost injured herself trying to master Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” dance, I can assure you that I will not be attempting this any time soon.
Would you try this at home?
…Please don’t, and don’t send us videos or pictures either.
Not only is the track insanely catchy, but the concept of the video is insane as well! A couple owns a cat hotel, and one of their “guests” inspires a great new idea: “Work it Kitty,” an aerobics video for cats. As you can imagine, the hilariousness only continues from there.
Crazy cat lovers, this one’s for you!!!
While the 80s called and wanted their clothes back, this has got to be the coolest drunken dance move I’ve ever seen.
If he dances this good when he’s drunk, what will he be like when he’s ACTUALLY SOBER?
The Black Eyed Peas’s will.i.am collaborates with another pop idol for his next single. This time, he and Justin Bieber bring their musical powers together for “#thatPower” off of his upcoming album #willpower.

Like all will.i.am songs, his new track is catchy, up beat, and sure to take over the club scene.
Will.i.Am’s #willpower is set to be released on April 9.

If there wasn’t enough reason to completely abandon this year’s stupidest viral sensation already, you might just stop stupidly convulsing right now because the “Harlem Shake” could actually get you fired.
According to the Associate Press, up to 15 Australian miners were fired from their jobs at a gold mine after their underground Harlem Shake performance was deemed unsafe. It wasn’t just the miners-turned-dancers that were let go—those who were simply watching were also given the boot.
While the dancing miners were all wearing helmets, the mine owner still considered the stunt a safety issue and a breach of its “core values of safety, integrity and excellence.
While we all think the Harlem Shake is a complete waste of time now we have screaming goats interrupting Taylor Swift every five seconds, do you think the miners should have been fired? Comment and let us know below!

B-girl Terra is only 6-years-old but watch as she completely destroys the D-floor with her skills. Well, I feel inadequate…
Our host Simon Mohos had a little fun with Shawn Desman and together they prank called some of the singer’s biggest fans!
Desman tried his best to disguise his voice but sometimes, his best just wasn’t good enough. One dedicated fan instantly recognized Desman right away.
“Is this Shawn Desman?” she asked.
“I don’t know, I don’t know what that is.”
“It is you, isn’t it?”
Luckily for us, it wasn’t the only call he made. The singer gets a little creepy and gets hung up on, is sweet on the voicemail and wishes another fan a very Happy Valentine’s Day.
R&B singer Shawn Desman is currently on the road for his first ever headlining tour!
Desman has been hitting the road to bring you the best of his new album, ALIVE, which has recently been nominated for Best R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at this year’s JUNO Awards.
Desman spills the beans on thinking outside of the box and moving into the film business. He recruited none other than Degrassi’s Melinda Shankar and Heartland’s Kaitlyn Leeb for his first movie project (which also shares the name of his latest album), Alive. Desman talks about working with the two ladies and how that experience was kind of like opening “The Shawn Desman School of Dance.”
When you think there are no more Harlem Shake videos to watch, ANDPOP will prove you wrong. Here’s another Harlem Shake you didn’t ask for, but we one we brought you anyway.
Singer-songwriter Anjulie is currently touring all across Canada with none other than Shawn Desman!
“I’m actually a big fan of Shawn Desman, a big fan,” said the singer who previously met the R&B singer when they sang together with Elton John at last year’s Fashion Cares gala hosted by the music icon.”But this is my first time kicking it with him and seeing his shows, which I hear is amazing because I heard he can dance his ass off.”
The “You and I” singer will visit seven cities across Canada, including Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto. Anjulie is currently nominated for Dance Record of the Year for this year’s JUNO Awards.
“We’re just really excited for the tour but we’re not excited to be driving through this torrential in a van all across Canada,” she said. “It’ll be an adventure.”
In this exclusive video of Anjulie prepping for her cross country tour, the singer shows off some of her sick dance moves and dishes on how her training routine. Make sure to catch Anjulie and Shawn Desman live when they roll into your ‘hood (remaining tour dates below)!

So many YouTubers are posting videos of their personalized “Harlem Shake” that I have no words to describe the booty-shaking madness anymore. But there’s a special place in my heart for this one by Matt and Kim, not only because I’m in love with them but because I’m going to their concert this weekend so now I’m extra stoked.
Please do this on Saturday, kay Matt and Kim? Thanks.
According to Wikipedia (the most legit source of the internet…) “The Harlem Shake” was originally called the albee and started in Harlem around 1981. The dance became mainstream in 2001 when G-Dep featured it in his music video “Let’s Get It.”
If you’re still not sure how or why the “krazy kids” are doing the “Harlem Shake,” leave it to dance instructor Professor Lock on mahalodotcom.

With NKOTB, 98 degrees, and Boys II Men anouncing a spring tour this week, I thought it was only fitting to make a list of our fave boy band hits from the 90s. These guys helped pave the way for our beloved One Direction and the Wanted.
Warning, the following videos will cause uncontrollable singing and an irreversible condition of being unable to forget the songs for days.
10. B44 – Get Down
This Canadian boy band is probably the worst export we’ve ever had. Not only is this song terrible, so is the hair, and the fact it is the catchiest song ever. Everyone remembers this song, unfortunately, I’ve brought it back.
9. B2K – Uh huh
This track was one of the biggest hits this band ever had. Lil’ Fizz, J-Boog, Raz-B and Omarion, made up the four-piece boy band. Nothing has come out for them in years, but Omarion has signed with Maybach Music Group. MMG is Rick Ross’s music label empire, which also has Wale and Meek Mill. Like Rick Ross, this doesn’t sound the least bit gangsta, but that’s why it’s on the list.
8. The Moffats – Misery
I think I was the only girl my age that didn’t have a crush on these guys. Regardless, the Moffats were big and all my friends went to their concerts. I have a confession: I actually kind of like this song. I may or may not have it on my iPod.

Every week this year, newscaster Bob Herzog graced viewers with an absurd tradition on Good Morning Cincinnati by dancing… for reasons no one really understands. Here’s part one of the Dance Party Friday Year in Review, which includes, among other things, tributes to both the Grammy Awards and the Oscars and the “Rocket Man” parody affectionately dubbed “Traffic Man.”

Remember Tron? Remember its amazing visuals with the simultaneous kick ass soundtrack? It’s like the Wrecking Crew Orchestra, a dance group from Japan, has brought those two together to make a performance that will literally blow your mind. Seriously, I’m still trying to figure this all out.
Their performance is often paralleled with Tron because of their unbelievably cool light-up suits. During their performance, it’s almost like the dancers appear out of no where from the depths of the dark stage. Nope, they’re still there — it’s just that their light up suits have made them look non-existent. It all sounds very complicated, and it kind of is. I still can’t wrap my mind around what my eyes have just seen. All I can say is this:
Watch the video here:
At a recent photoshoot for Nylon Guy’s November issue, doe-eyed Alison Brie was asked to dougie so naturally, she performed the Charleston instead.
They try not to sexualize her (ahem, Kate Upton).
“Did you say the dougie?” the Community star asked. “I don’t know if I really know the Dougie. You know, the Charleston is like my dance. I haven’t done it in a while.”
Despite her disclaimer, Brie’s Charleston was as good a roaring 20s romp as I’ve ever seen. Do you think she picked up some dance skills on Mad Men? Though the show takes place in the 50s and 60s, Pete and Trudy Campbell showed off some mad 1920s dance skills at Roger Sterling’s wedding bash.

If “Gangnam Style” singer Psy specifically wanted to see me mimic his trademark horse-riding moves, I’d be flattered. Ryan Seacrest on the other hand, was all nerves, putting off Psy’s invitation to dance at every possible moment. Ryan, WHEN PSY SAYS DANCE, YOU DANCE. Have some respect, man.
After Seacrest’s interview with the Korean singer, he wouldn’t join in when staff members and guests like Rita Ora performed the choreography alongside Psy. Don’t worry though, eventually the power of Psy’s “Gangnam Style” takes over and Ryan pays his due.
The video was posted on Seacrest’s YouTube page, which also includes an interview in which Psy talks about offering dance lessons to Usher.
