Okay, Wanna-One (or Wanna One?) is not the best name. Pretty sure we all thought it was gonna be B.O.I or something.
I’m hella excited for:
Kang Daniel - Being a dad and literally just- i mean, him and jisung made it, and we got some Ong in here so
Park Jihoon - I want to see more of his personality though????
Lee Daehwi - I’m so shook i’m glad he made it. honestly i just wanna see him mess around
Kim Jaehwan - FUCKING VOCALSSSSSS
Ong Seongwoo - Being Ong Seongwoo tbh thats it and pair him with jisng and we got chaos
Park Woojin - his crazy side is gonna come out at some point and damn Woojin/guanlin/daehwi/baejin/jihoon interactions i- probably gonna hold a hip hop concert with Guanlin and Daniel featuring Kim Jaehwan
Lai Guanlin - he gonna be shipped with everybody but like I don’t ever see him with Jaehwan or Seongwoo or Jisung or Minhyun????? Swaggy rapper fr
Yoon Jisung - Memesung of course. probably moodmaker number 1
Hwang Minhyun - I feel so bad since he’s all alone but I hope the boys look up to him and comfort him
Bae Jinyoung - just a bundle of joy? crazy side probably gonna be released even more (i mean he bit jihoon)
Ha Sungwoon - VOCALSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS HIM AND JAEHWAN BETTER HAVE A DUET ON ONE OF THEIR ALBUMS AND THEY ALL GOTTA DO A COLLAB WITH MINHYUN AND SEWOON
Honestly I cannot wait. Imma post about them too maybe bring back some old broduce posts :’)
Musicals make everything better, and “Duet” is an hour that ends with what will surely be one of the most talked-about scenes in DCTV history. We’ve been sworn to secrecy, but it does involve a song, and like that Buffy musical, it pushes forward the action for at least one of those shows.
If Cisco and Winn don’t get solos in the musical episode (which’ll piss me off) they better have some badass duet about Tech or Suits. Maybe Winn singing about how he loves working with superheroes and how he wishes he had powers too whilst Cisco counteracts everything he says with snark singing stuff like powers are so fucking stressful and superheroes aren’t all that great because sometimes they kill your brother or the other times their enemies kill you.
Okay preface this by saying all of the performances were incredibly well-done and clean - everyone was seriously on their A-game. Most of this is about the choice of song itself. (Bonus I’m severely unfamiliar with the shows so I do not have examples of other songs they could have done)
(I can’t remember the exact order so these are probably not in it)
Come from Away: I felt the song choice itself was pretty strong - from what I gather it was early in the show and was a good one to feature the whole ensemble. I definitely was curious about the show after watching it. For some reason, though, the stage seemed too big? Also whose head was that…
Miss Saigon: Showcase the incredible lead? Check. Convey the intensity of the show? Check. Highlight the awesome ensemble vocals? Woah! I do think it was out-of-the-box to do a scene and then a song, but I felt overwhelmingly confused by the first minute or so. Maybe since it’s a revival, they trust the audience to be thrown head-first in, but there was very little context. That being said, it was a powerful showcase.
Groundhog Day: It was a really cute number and the song was nice, I just felt, again, like the context was missing. Who is this woman? Where in the show is this? The ensemble involvement fun - you could definitely see the personalities and variety of the characters, which was very cute. Sidenote anyone else notice a rando standing in the wings?
War Paint: The show was built to showcase two strong leading ladies, and this performance shows us that. I don’t know anything about the musical and the song itself was fine. Forgettable.
Hello, Dolly: I don’t have much to say. They really undeserved the show and its cast with this number. Sure, the song was nice and didn’t really need much explanation, but I knew nothing about this production going in and I’m left with nothing.
Dear Evan Hansen: I was definitely skeptical going into this one, but I have to give credit where it’s due because Ben Platt was lovely. However, as a song to represent the cast of the show? They could have done better - at least a duet or a trio if you’re going to have your chorus oohing and aahing. I also feel like I learned a bunch of Ben Platt’s vocal tics.
Bandstand: For a show without a lot of nominations, I was really impressed by this performance. A good ensemble (and lead) showcase, and I got to appreciate that Tony-winning choreography. Despite any thoughts about this show itself, I thought their performance was well-chosen and very strong.
Falsettos: Even though it was out of context, they made the character relations very clear and did a good job showing off the whole cast. It was also majorly adorable. I guess if I had to nitpick, some of the other performances were showstoppers, and this one wasn’t really, as in, I felt like it was setting me up for a part that didn’t come. Also I’ll say what we were all thinking: thank god they put a wig on that man.
Great Comet: Really good use of space, and great balance between showing off individual vocal chops and highlighting the awesome ensemble. It was big fun, and they managed to convey a lot about the show’s feel despite being on a different stage. I would have liked to see a number with Denée Benton, well, singing, but this was a high-energy performance that was my personal favorite of the bunch.
Johnny and Meena like to practice with each other due to their similar powerful voices. Johnny helps Meena with her confidence and stage presence, while Meena helps Johnny with his projection to make his voice even more powerful. This also results in many awesome duets between the two that causes people to feel either massive amounts happiness or crippling emotions
When Friday finally rolls around, you wake up with a smile on your face.
Tonight is your date with Chris.
You still can’t believe you’d managed to get this far, but you were determined to have a good time and try to make a real connection with him.
Sitting up in bed, you reach over to your nightstand to grab your cell phone. The screen lights up with various notifications, some texts, and one missed call. You swipe through all the new content before you land on a text from your publicist, which contains nothing but a link. You click it, raising your eyebrows in surprise when you see where it leads.
The headline is simple, “WILL THEY OR WON’T THEY?” but the photos just beneath it are of you and Chris, which makes your stomach knot up. You scroll down the page to the article.
“Unless you live under a rock, you must be familiar with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a late-night staple among many people in the US. If you were watching last week, you might’ve caught an appearance by actress (Your Name) (Your Last Name) in which she admitted to having a crush on superhero actor and all-around dreamboat Chris Evans. Not only that, but Fallon then surprised (Your Last Name) by bringing Evans out from backstage, where he then proceeded to ask (Your Last Name) on a date. So, our question now is: will they or won’t they? Was it all for show? Will there actually be a date this Friday night? We don’t know the answers, but here’s one thing that’s a given: they’d make an awfully cute couple.”
I can’t really talk to you all that much in public anymore so I will just blatantly stare and wink and blow kisses and share clothes and change lyrics to relate to you as much as it is physically possible for me to do
Santana’s bed was comfortable. Having initially hoped to be offered the desk chair, seeing it covered in extra Cheerio uniforms as she walked into Santana’s bedroom squashed that, so Rachel, after Santana waved carelessly at it, gingerly and stiffly sat on the edge of the mattress instead. Then, ignoring Santana’s resulting smirk and quip, she handed over an already prepared duet score. Better to focus on that than… Other things.
