Boogie 2014 Update #2 – Strictlys, The Short Version

Strictlys last night, Jack and Jills today as usual, and a few songs for you hometown deejays...

I know you are waiting to hear how your friends are doing – who’s competing, who made finals, what’s going on here.

I’m sorry to say that this information is not made available at Boogie. So I can’t tell you who’s here. Or who’s dancing. :-(

So sorry about this!

I know there are people across the world, and across the country, expecting to hear about friends and family, what’s going on. Wish I could tell you but oh well, that’s life. :-(

Strictlys happened – I can say that. And they were fun to watch, of course, as they always are.

All divisions were medium-sized, one heat for each division, no semis. Allstar and Champions were spotlight.

Today is Jack and Jills all day. Won’t be able to tell you who’s dancing – but jack and jills will include a division where one can choose either to lead or to follow regardless of one’s gender (no wsdc points though, which is the issue that bugs people.)

Mario’s emceeing, it’s always nice to hear Mario’s voice on the mic.

Beth Bellamy and April Prince are deejaying comps. Neither wifi nor cellular reception in the ballroom here so I’m unable to Shazam songs I don’t recognize … but here are a few I did know:

“Everyday I Have The Blues” (Patrice Jegou)

“Shut Up” (Little Violet)

“Rather Be” (Clean Bandit)

“September” (Earth, Wind & Fire)

“A Place With No Name” (Michael Jackson)

“Beauty And A Beat” (Justin Bieber)

“Scream” (Usher)

“Own This Club” (Marvin Priest)

“One Man Show” (Ariana Savalas)

“Who’s Making Love” (Johnnie Taylor)

“Think” (Aretha Franklin)


“Sugar” (Maroon 5)

“Movin’ And Groovin” (Sam Cooke)

“2 On” (Tinashe)

“Ain’t Too Proud To Beg”

Tonight is routines – I love routines! Young America, Young Adult, Rising Star, Showcase, and Classic!
