Christina Aguilera “Wheel of Musical Impressions” on Jimmy Fallon

Last night season eight of The Voice premiered (does this show ever go off air?) and Christina Aguilera is back once again as a coach.  To promote the show she joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.  Jimmy asked her to play “Wheel of Musical Impressions” where she had to channel the likes of Cher, Brittany and Shakira.  She was flawless and perhaps at her best singing The Folger’s jingle as Cher, but even Brittany fans are likely to love her version of how Ms. Spears might sing “This Little Piggy”.  Say what you will but sitting down without any heads up she does a better live impersonation of Brittany Spears than Brittany could.

Saturday night video: I want it that way

Here is another video from Post Modern Jukebox.  This remake of the Backstreet Boys hit I Want It That Way, features Shoshana Bean and I have to admit, despite a slow start, I really love this version and I hope you do too.

Have a great Saturday night.

Saturday night video The Thing I Didn’t Know I Didn’t Know

Great date night video.  This is a song by Brett Every based on the novel THE THING I DIDN’T KNOW I DIDN’T KNOW by Brent Hartinger.

Does music help keep you motivated and focused when working out?  I’m sure it comes as no surprise that good music can help you get a better workout.  Fix.com recently published a rather interesting infographic that explains how music affects our workouts by deconstructing the way music changes the way we exercise.

According to the blog post on Fix.com, focus on beats per minute as a decisive factor when deciding the type of music that works best for your workout. The different heart rates that various types of exercise induce should match with the beats per minute of your music. You can see the full infographic and article here.

Saturday night video: Dear Santa Bring Me a Man

Courteny Act, Alaska, Willam!RuPaul Drag Race alumnus Courtney Act, Willam and Alaska Thunderfuck have released a draglicious little ditty in time for the holidays called Dear Santa Bring Me a Man.  Many of you may have already seen this clip, but I thought it was perfect to hold off and post on a Saturday evening.  I actually love it and think I’m developing a bit of  a crush on Courtney.  Check out her homage to Madonna – mimicking her famous pose in the Vogue video.
