Burlesque but not as we know it

Britain’s Got Talent hit our television last night with a few eye openers to say the least.  Apparently it beat Doctor Who in the ratings…No Surprise…

With a rich mixture of the weird, wacky and downright bizarre one stood out more than most.  In Oxford Fabia Cerra hit the stage and well amazed, shocked, stunned and then eventually wowed the judges on last night’s show – and made it through to the next round.

The 35-year-old, from Greater Leys, performed a burlesque strip tease in front of millions of TV viewers.  with a couple of mishaps along the way. after stripping off her jacket the boobs with out and we the viewers saw the British flag, she lost a tassel as it flew off with the twirling force.

Judge Simon Cowell said: “I absolutely adore you.”  Piers said “You are my kind of women, if I have my way you would be in the final right now”.

Miss Cerra said it felt great to have won a standing ovation and added she couldn’t wait to perform on stage again.

She said: “I’ve never felt so frightened in my life.”

We will have to wait to see what she delivers next time.

Mel getting down and dirty

Mel B leaves little to the imagination in her raunchy new burlesque show

Mel B as I have written about before has been rehearsing for her new role which she seems to be enjoying and who can blame her.   Cavorting with fit bare-chested male dancers and shimmying with female co-stars the former Spice Girl Mel B last week presented her burlesque act Peepshow in Las Vegas.

And although Leeds-born Mel didn’t go topless in the show, some of her fellow dancers did. She described the performance as ‘scantily clad, but in a classy way’.

Mel B

With the rise of artists such as Dita Von Teese, the famous burlesque queen  has made burlesque become a high-profile form of entertainment, even considered an art form.   How pouring pink paint onto a man tied to a bed fits in with this is open debate but the former Scary Spice clearly enjoyed her role as a saucy striptease artist.   At the show in the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, Mel B – whose full name is Melanie Brown – donned a range of increasingly provocative outfits.

The preview performance last week was not without incident, and a fire alarm was set off during the first song.  I wonder if strapping firemen arrived in their suits!!! Oh wonderous!   Despite this, the singer was given a standing ovation at the end of the show.  Mel B wears a range of increasingly provocative outfits in the burlesque show.

Mel B stars as Peep Diva, described as ‘a bold and powerful woman with all the answers’, who acts as the mistress of ceremonies.   She guides the timid Bo Peep, played by American TV starlet Kelly Monaco, on a journey of self-discovery and sexual awakening.   Kelly’s character blossoms into a ‘sexy, daring, provocative and more confident woman’ with Mel’s expert help.

The former Spice Girl said of her new role: ‘Because I’m coming out as a solo artist next year, I feel this show is putting me back in an arena that I’m most comfortable in and love doing most, which is performing and entertaining on stage.’   Mel added: ‘This is an original show. This part is great for me.’   Kelly’s character, left, blossoms into a sexy, daring, more confident woman with Mel B’s help by the end of the night

She was joined by several scantily-clad dancers.   ‘As a Spice Girl I would bring guys on the stage and whip them, so I think I’ve always been slightly naughty.’   In comparison to former bandmate Victoria, who is carving out a name for herself in the fashion industry, Mel B has had a relatively low profile since the end of her days as Scary Spice.

‘Modelling lingerie is really empowering and it was fantastic to get in character for the shoot and strut my stuff.’   Mel B and Kelly Monaco are set to star in the show for several months. A rotation of celebrities will later headline Peepshow.
