This Is Us season four includes lots of drama and another stellar soundtrack. The series always knows how to drive home those emotional scenes with the perfect song, and this season is no different. After getting introduced to a whole new set of characters in the premiere, the episode ends with Kate and Toby’s adult son Jack (played by the talented Blake Stadnik) taking center stage to perform an original song. Looks like a love for singing runs in the Pearson family!
There has also been a good mix of oldies and pop songs throughout the season. John Legend even makes a special cameo as himself in the Winter premiere! Listen to the season four soundtrack ahead.
Get Your Dance On With These Fun Cardio Workouts Featuring Lauv Songs
I’ve learned that, despite not being that much of a dancer, dance cardio workouts at home are effective. They can make you break a sweat and are a great alternative to embarrassing yourself at Zumba (yes, I know from experience). Plus, it’s an excuse to spike your heart rate while jamming to some of your favorite hits. Sure, weightlifting to a motivational, no-excuses playlist is a good time, but getting your groove on to kickass music, even if you don’t normally frequent the dance floor, promises all kinds of fun.
Lauv is a pop artist whose songs are particularly workout-friendly. Hits like “Chasing Fire” and “F*ck, I’m Lonely” get you in your feelings (at least, that’s what they do for me on my commute to and from the office and whenever I’m in the mood for his syrupy-smooth vocals) and also feature beats that get you moving. And when it comes to dancing to his hits, you’ll be sure to finish with a smile. Ahead, check out dance cardio workouts set to Lauv songs. If you want more follow-along videos that aren’t just Lauv-related but keep the vibe going, you can find pop music ab sessions here. Go dance like nobody’s watching (because, alone in your room, no one is!).
Ellen DeGeneres’s The Masked Singer Parody Is So Popular It’s Becoming Its Own Series
The Masked Singer is the biggest unexpected reality show hit in several years, and now it’s getting a spinoff – featuring Ellen? That’s the news coming out of Fox at the TCA Winter Press Tour, apparently. The Masked Dancer has officially been ordered to series, and it all began with a parody segment on Ellen’s talk show.
After The Masked Singer took off, Ellen combined the goofy anonymous celebrity guessing game and her own famous dancing segments and turned it into a tongue-in-cheek recurring segment called “The Masked Dancer.” Much like its inspiration, the segment features celebrities dressed in elaborate, head-to-toe costumes and masks to disguise their identities as they perform their own unique dances for a panel of “judges” and the audience, who then try to guess the celebrities’ real identities. Howie Mandel, Sean Hayes, Derek Hough, Bachelor star Colton Underwood, and The Masked Singer judge Ken Jeong have all appeared on the segment, which is spearheaded by Ellen and her DJ tWitch, himself a veteran of the TV dance competition So You Think You Can Dance.
The new series will be produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment and Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television, with Ellen executive producing as well.”We’re still blown away by The Masked Singer‘s massive impact on pop culture, but when Ellen debuted her own inventive segment, ‘The Masked Dancer,’ on her show, we were truly amazed,” Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Entertainment, said in a statement to Deadline. “We are thrilled to partner with Ellen on this new format and take The Masked Singer to a whole new creative level.”
Ellen, for her part, reacted to the news as one might expect: with a quip. “This is gonna be just as fun and suspenseful as The Masked Singer, but with a lot more Krumping.” No filming or premiere dates have been announced yet.
