Gone are the days of the Whitneys, Mariahs and Celines where they could just stand there and belt out song after song after song. If you take a look at other singers in the recent music scene with the likes of Britney, Christina and now GaGa, you must be able to sing AND dance, even the old era had needed to evolve and change as well.
A very good example is actually also American Idol where the crux is a singing competition where its based on vocal talent -mainly-. But if you aint no country singer, you’d better learn how to dance!
Just take a look at Jordan Sparks in today’s Americal Idol results show performance. She is forced to learn how to dance and move while singing in order to compete and stand a better chance to compete with Gaga and other singers who can sing AND dance. Some chance is better than almost no chance. No?
