Oh, Gwyneth... Please Stop!
My eyes! I can't believe what I saw last night!
THIS is Ann Reinking:
She is a fabulous dancer. If you don't know who she is, you really should go see her in a show or a movie or something.
THIS is Gwyneth Paltrow:
She may be a big star, and she may be morphing into a singer... but she is NOT a dancer!
This is Bebe Newirth (also a pretty good dancer) with Ann Reinking on the Broadway stage in "Chicago":
They were BREATHTAKING doing the the "Hot Honey Rag".
This is Lea Michele and Gwyneth Paltrow last on on "Glee" doing the "Hot Honey Rag":
They were awful! Especially Gwyneth. She looked like a rank amateur, compared to Ann Reinking. No control of her body at all, just flapping around... ugh!
I know lots of young people love "Glee". I think it's great that they are becoming interested in glee clubs and old movie musicals (i.e., the "Make Em Laugh" number from "Singing in the Rain"). I just hope they don't get the impression that this is as good as it gets.
