B-Girlz Provide A-List Performance
The show, The B-List, starts with a video depicting the out-of-control antics of the three B-Girlz: Barbie-Q, Hard Kora and Ivana K. The vignette is professionally done and does a great job of poking fun at the downfalls of modern celebrities.
When the troupe takes the stage, they do so with plenty of energy and sexual innuendo. Much of the show is devoted to poking fun at celebrity mishaps through song and dance. Now I must admit that while I’ve never been too interested in the not-so-intimate lives of celebrities, I was thoroughly entertained throughout this performance. The song and dance routines are expertly choreographed and make perfect use of props. Many of the songs performed by the B-Girlz are parodies of popular hits from throughout the ages, evoking the likes of Weird Al Yankovic. Their timing, lyrics and eye for subtle gestures is really quite astounding. Even though their singing could be describe as “karaoke-quality,” it somehow adds to the charm of the whole performance.
I must admit that I may be a bit biased because I was called on stage to take part in a Canadian trivia challenge and got a free t-shirt and noise maker out of the deal. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the shirt because the label tells me it’s an “S”, which I can only assume means “Skin tight”… I’m sure I can find some use for it.
For their ability to sustain a high level of energy throughout their entire performance, their great choreography and their ability to demonstrate the subtle while performing the exaggerated, I rate this performance a: Monorail.
