Backstreet's back.

FHE tonight was a multi-ward talent show. One word: epic.

Let's start with the emcees. Um, wow. Every other act they would come out in new costumes. First: Indiana Jones and Wolverine. Huh? Second: two of the Village People. Er... Third: a devil (not Sparky) and an angel. Fourth: a snorkler and a Michael Phelps-wannabee.

The entire show was amazing. I thought there were entirely too many guitar numbers, but hey. What can you do? And they were at least awesome, so it was okay. Numbers included "Out of My League" and that freefalling song. I'm going to feel really silly if it's just called "Freefalling." Is it?

The Fabulous Shelby (aka my VT) performed another dance number. This one was to "Ease on Down the Road" from The Wiz. Yeah, she's the one obsessed with Michael Jackson. I don't think this number was as good as her one at the ward talent show to "Billy Jean," though.

There was also an encore performance of Kayla's "Pippi Longstocking" monologue. She's so hilarious. Her facial expression are what really make the show.

But of course, the grand finale was the best. Four guys started out doing a sort of puppet show where they made these nifty little guys with their arms and hoodies. It took two people per character. They dance to clips from "Everytime We Touch" and some rap-ish song. It seemed way too short when they withdrew their arms and took the curtain away, but then the guys themselves came out and dedicated their next piece to all the ladies in the house. And then....they breakdanced to the Backstreet Boys! And stuff. They had a whole routine going! It was absolutely awesome.

On the way home, we sang "She Wolf" by Shakira. That's right, be jealous.

Listening to: "Rock Island" from The Music Man, as sung by my roommate
Reading: Le Morte D'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory

  1. Are you talking about the Tom Petty song? Freefalling.
