THIS WEEKS RHYME IS TANGO TIME

And so here is an update,

On how the trainings done,

This week it is the tango,

Thats killing all the fun,

Its hard to get the hang of,

When i think its good, its not

‘You have to keep your frame!’

Is something Tone shouts alot!

My body must be stiffer,

My legs bent, loose and low,

Arms straight and horizontal,

Its heel, heel, toe, heel, toe.

Its harder than the cha cha,

It makes me want to cry

When Tone says its wrong

All she hears from me is ‘why?’

But there’s no use in moaning

Im gonna do my best

There’s votes to win from norway

And there’s judges to impress!

So fingers crossed for saturday

Enough with all the rhymes,

Its time to turn those judges scores

From sevens into nines!

 

THE SHOW, THE BEARD AND THE AFTER PARTY

So lets kick this post off with a snap shot from saturday night! Loved every second of our routine! As you can see from the judges faces here, they are loving it too! Look at those smiles! Ha Ha! Priceless…….Now on to Tone’s beard. I think you will agree that she actually looks pretty hot with a beard. Now no one told me that sunday was the main day of ‘behind the scenes’ filming for the show, so i drank ALOT at the after party, fully expecting to have a lazy sunday afternoon rehearsal. Wrong. Trying to string a sentence together for the cameras on a hang over is not an easy task! :p I blame these 2 women below. Katrine was forcing me to drink endless amounts of shots, and Sara was topping up my wine glass the whole evening. And i wasnt wearing any make up. (I dont know if any of you have visited MADAME TUSSAUDS in london, but i imagine my wax work would look a bit like this :p)

See you next time blogg reader people! xxx

READY OR NOT HERE WE COME


ARE WE READY? YES! ARE WE GONNA BE AWESOME? YES! HAS TONE GOT ENOUGH FAKE TAN ON TO ALLOW HER TO BLEND INTO A LARGE CONTAINER OF ORANGES WITHOUT BEING NOTICED? YES. LOOKING FORWARD TO TONIGHT. HOPE YOU WILL BE WATCHING. IT IS OF COURSE THE MOST IMPORTANT BIT OF TV YOU WILL EVER SEE…………WATCH OUT FOR THE HIP THRUSTS. YEARS OF TRAINING. 😛

hair today, gone tomorrow

So many people have been asking me what im wearing for the first show…….So i thought i would come with a sneak preview. 🙂 As you can see, this is an all in one shirt/ underwear combination. Apparently its the latest trend in Oslo. I did ask if i was allowed to wear any trousers, but they were pretty insistent that i didnt. At least the shirt keeps everything in one place. Another question im often asked is ‘how did you get your chest hair to be so finely curled?’ and ‘have you borrowed a rug and stuck in on your chest?’ The answer is, my good friend Daniel Radcliffe gave this magic bottle of “hairspray for wizards’ when i visited him on the set of Harry Potter. Its awesome! It never runs out! And it gives you exactly the right amount of hair, in any place at any time……..WOW! (Not recommended for girls…..Especially ones that hold onto the top railing on the tram on a tuesday between bislett and Oslo S, who have grown their armpit hair to unexplainable lengths)

Skoene er fine men ….

Jeg vet ikke hvordan dere andre føler om dette, men jeg kan ihvertfall ikke gå i høye heler i timesvis hver dag!! Selv for en proff danser som er vant til det så er ikke det akkurat drømmen for bena! Jeg kan meddele at jeg har 3-4 vannblemmer på hvert fot, pluss noen fine gnagesår både på hel og tær.

Så det er ikke bare bare å danse i høye heler for noen!

MEN.. Jeg gjør noe lurt! Kan dere gjette hva det er? Jo nemlig ved bruk av verdens beste oppfinnelse… Strømpebuksen!!!

Den gjør livet til bena mine litt mer luxuriøst og bena mine blir litt gladere i meg 🙂  Så rett og slett snakk om litt gjensidig respekt!

 

 

I går kom fine Mette Fløysvik inn på dansegulvet vårt og begynnte å strø noe på gulvet.  Ben kom til meg med kule runde øyne og spurte: “Driver hun å strør revet ost utover gulvet!?”. Jeg for mitt vedkommende trodde det var sagflis! Men så feil kan man ta! Mette drev hverken å lagde pizza eller pusset opp, hun strødde nemlig voks utover slik at gulvet ikke var så glatt, og at vi ikke skulle skli og slå oss halvt ihjel!!

 

Takk Mette!! 🙂

 

 

Og i dag er det 20 års jubileum for TV2!! Så i den anledning er Ben på vei til Bergen for å feire verdens beste TV kanal sammen med de andre kjendisene fra Skal vi Danse!! Her er han på Gardermoen klar for take off med vår kjære Asmund Grinaker 🙂 Håper dere får en super kveld!! Men husk at det er trening i morgen… 🙂

 

another day another dancer

here is a pic of us in full swing! this is part off our michael jackson section. pretty soon after this i bust out a few splits and a moonwalk, while tone gets her rocket pack on and shoots around the room a few times. she then lands and we set off the fireworks for the final move. awesome.

skal vi synge?

so this morning was all about recording the next a1 single and im happy to report its sounding awesome! now time to head off to the dance studio to laugh, cry, get frustrated with myself and try remember all the steps! 🙂 happy days!

stavang over

so last night we were in stavanger for a concert. the crowd were amazing! just like being back at wembley arena. i lent hanne my dress for the event. mark demonstrated how rock and roll he was by showing excitement over a large box of tea, while i tried to teach christian some of my dance moves. lets just say im glad i was the a1 member chosen for the show. 😛 now back to oslo for some serious rehearsal time. 🙂
