A chance to dance with Wang Leehom (and Justin Timberlake will be there too)

Justin Timberlake is embarrassed to be overdressed for the occasion, so he's avoiding direct eye contact. Wang Leehom, on the other hand, is more confident. He doesn't mind that he's dressed like General Zod from Superman II. "Look how parallel to the ground I can hold this cup," his eyes seem to say.

I started following everybody’s favourite Taiwanese-American superstar on Twitter recently. Did you know that KevJumba is going to be in an action movie with that Asian guy from Glee this year? Quirky stuff.
In unrelated news, Wang Leehom recently got a new Twitter account. He tweets pretty frequently, so you have to sift through a lot of junk tweets to get to the good, meaty stuff. I mean, apparently it was his birthday on Saturday. As if we were paying attention to that. And his wife is five months pregnant with his first-born child? Really, come now.

Anyway, the now-38-year-old and father-to-be (happy birthday and congratulations from us, by the way) is giving his physically coordinated fans the chance to perform with him on stage at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing on 14 June, where Justin Timberlake will also appear as a special guest. For those of you who can dance, here are the details: (more…)

Are you in Olympics withdrawal?

I think Jackie Chan is. He posted massive amounts of pictures on his blog about the good times he had as a volunteer for the Olympics, and the famous people he got to meet. Feast your eyes on this quartet you boyband lovers.

These guys know no generation boundaries: L-R Emil Chau Jackie Chan Liu Huan and Andy Lau

But unlike most of us, Jackie doesn’t have to go cold turkey. He will be performing at the first concert event of any kind held at the Birds Nest, along with people who can actually sing/make music, including world famous pianist Li Yundi, old school Chinese singer Song Zuying, and Supergirl Li Yuchun. This is a show for charity.

Tickets will be tight probably since they’ve covered a broad range of fans from the classical to folk to pop to “other” (whatever Jackie Chan’s music would be called) , but don’t worry, if you can’t make the Birds Nest, you can still get tickets for the Musical Watercube Extravaganza.
