The Fab Five Perform on Monday September 14, 2009

It’s a big weekend for five sisters from Morgan Utah. On Monday, the Fab Five will dance on the biggest stage of their lives: in the finals ofAmerica’s Got Talent.”

The Fab Five are in Las Vegas now, and practicing their clogging up to 10 hours a day. But Veva says they couldn’t do it without family and friends.

“It’s not really the Fab Five anymore. It’s like the Fab 50 (or 720 ClogOn Fans and 1,500 cloggers respectively on Facebook) and, because so many people are just reaching out to us,” Veva said.

They say they are just enjoying the ride. But if they win, they want to use the prize money to help their children and their dad, who lost his Morgan farm in this bad economy.

Veva had a message for fans back home.

“To the viewers of Utah,” she said, “thank you so much for letting us into your homes and into your hearts.”

The finals are Monday night on NBC.

How’d you do overall?

What are Clogging Shoes Really?

I’ve been clogging practically my whole life (25 of 31 years). My clogging shoes have taken me all over the world. I can’t count how many times I’ve answered the question (or one similar):

What are clogging shoes?

So, here are answers to this ongoing question:

5 Things Clogging Shoes Are Not

1. Tap Shoes

Despite the similarities and new versions of “Power Tap” that are a clogging/tap combo, clogging shoes and tap shoes are different.  The main difference is that clogging shoes have two steel taps on the toe and heel; tap shoes generally have one on the toe and heel.

2. Big Clogs

3. Small Clogs

4. Shoes You Can Sit It

5. Shoes Clogging a Toilet

Here are the clogging shoes we’re referring to:

Ms. Stompers

(Girls and Women’s Clogging Shoes)

Mr. Stompers

(Boys and Men’s Clogging Shoes)

Scoop or Mary Jane Style

Powerhouse Cloggers are Famous in Nebraska

Look where clogging has taken former Utah clogger Brian Bon – ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Brian Bon started clogging in Utah when he was 15 years old and he says he never would have believed that he’d still be clogging 25 years later.

The leader of the Powerhouse group owes his start in percussive dance to a 4-year stint on a classic country television show, “When I was 15 is when we started doing Hee Haw so as stupid as it sounds it totally changed my life to be a clogger on Hee Haw because I’ve spent the rest of my life doing that and I’ve been teaching 25 years.” And Brian’s taught thousands of people his own unique style, “It’s a combination of clogging, tap, Irish and stomp. It has it’s roots in contemporary clogging. I started off dancing with my brother and sisters. My mom and dad had 12 kids and 7 of us danced together for 20 years.”

Brian says, “There’s not a big market for percussive dance so for me to get up there whether it’s twenty people or a thousand people we’re dancing for they always love it, it’s so exciting and as long as they’re having a great time, I’m having a great time.”

As a native Californian Chrissy Simmers is enjoying her first trip to Nebraska, “So far the people here are so nice and it’s not like that in California.”

Getting paid to dance, Brian and his team are living the dream. Powerhouse is on the road for 73 days this summer and their ambitious schedule has them performing more than 300 shows over the course of about 3 months.

They’ll dancing here 4 times a day every day until the State Fair ends on Monday. The first show of the day is at 2pm followed by performances at 4, 6 and 8.

A Bit of America’s Got Talent Controversy?

Also, what did you all think of the comment by Arcadian Broad?

If I could say something…I didn’t have this planned. I didn’t want to do High School Musical; the producers gave me this hand…

I thought it was really funny how the judges and Emcee tried to cover.

It’s up to America who stays on this show…


The acts do have a final say on what they do when they perform.

Is there any doubt that somehow poor Arcadia WON’T be coming back? Interesting is all I have to say about that 🙂
