My Take: Dancelife - Staci's Video

So Staci is a successful dancer but what she really wants to do is sing. To help her land a record deal, she promises to develop a music video in a matter of days. And I have to say, I'm impressed with the way all her friends rallied to make it happen. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with them all being on an MTV show, but still, I know dancers are part of a tight community so I wonder if this is true to real life.

Everyone was involved - Blake helped with the directing, Jersey landed the venue, Nolan helped on the technical side (I think?), Celestina danced back-up, and Kenny (aww - Kenny!) deserved the true rockstar award for doing double duty as back-up dancer as well as cutting the final product!!! (even if it meant no sleep to meet Staci's deadline)

Below is the final product:

What do you think? To be honest, my reaction is sort of.... eh. I don't think there's anything unique about her voice or the song and even her performance in the video was kind of blah. I definitely don't see the "it" factor with her or anything. And you can't tell from the video, but during the filming, Kenny was dancing circles around her! (OK, I'm biased, I have a secret crush on this cute Boston boy.)

I loved that Staci thanks Jersey and Celestina for their help with the video by taking them to a shooting range. My favorite quote was Jersey's "I'm an Italian bee-yotch!!!" after she ended up doing pretty well on her first time out.

And it was nice to see TJ Espinoza again - maybe he can help Britney. He seems like a good guy.

She sounds like she just belong to the Pussycat Dolls or something. Not very original, I agree.

Funny you should say that - apparently, she was one of the founding members of PCD but left the group in 2003.
