Every year that One Direction toured in Chicago, my parents gifted me what I considered the equivalent of life, One Direction concert tickets. Always relatively close to the stage, never close enough. Christmas of 2014 rolled around, when tickets would be inevitably gifted to me. However, when they weren't, my world came crumbling down around me. Luckily for me, my parents bought them in January when the only seats left were floor seats. Winter ended... Zayn left the

The group began performing at many clubs and bars eventually gaining attention from recording labels. In 1968, The Jackson 5 signed with Motown records.

His ability to capture so much emotion while he sang is what made him seem mature for his age, and interesting to watch. The Jackson 5 quickly climbed the charts producing number one hit singles,
The production process for “The Audition” was unlike any other show I’ve been a part of. The scenes were rehearsed and broken up into sections that were often blocked out of order, and other elements of the show like the dancing and singing, also started out as separate entities from the rest of the show. This came with multiple challenges, but many of them worked themselves out in the end.

I had to learn how to teach dance to people who have never set foot inside a dance studio which is no easy task. Luckily, the more

Throughout their years at the top they were shrouded in mystery and intrigue, and seemed to leave behind a trail of question marks wherever they went. They were not a “public” band (they didn’t hire a
This picture is from America’s Next Top Model cycle 8 with the episode entitled The Girl Who Takes Credit. In this episode Tyra partners with the infamous Ru Paul and uses some of her drags in the photo shoot during this week. The girls were challenged to pose as men while the drags were going to pose as their wives. Each model was given a specific type of couple that they were supposed to portray in this photo shoot.
