For the first time last Fall, the middle school where I teach held a lip sync battle with staff and students as part of our morning announcements, and I made my way to the finals and eventually became reigning champ. Woo hoo! It was a BLAST, and I fully intend to defend my crown next year. After giving up hope that I was ever going to receive my trophy, I finally received it this week. (Better late than never.) Isn't it awesome?
I thought it would be fun to share my performances with you below. :)
My family helped me choose this song and come up the concept of the performance. They were the ones who thought I should be sitting on one of the big bouncy balls. It was my idea to enlist two of my students to join me so I could beat the crap out of them with it. Heh heh. I thought I had the version where the music track was placed over the original sound, but I was mistaken. You can totally hear the boys cracking up in this.
This one is my favorite of the three. I love how our TV production teacher, who is the backup dancer on the left, made the video resemble Beyonce's by making it black and white. And the comic relief my colleagues provided with their dancing is absolutely priceless. It will be tough to top this one next year if you ask me.
This one is my least favorite, simply because we tried to go too big by moving through the building, so with all the splicing that was required, the music track doesn't match the video. Bummer. However, the kids are super cute! Pay special attention to the little guy in the red shirt on the left at the end of the video. The dude's got some moves!
