Fame in London

Stars transformed the city of London into downtown Manhattan and recreated the famous street dance sequence from musical "Fame".

Actress Denise Van Outen and comedian Johnny Vegas were backed by over 1,000 dancers and even members of the public were invited to join in on the event which took place in Worship Street, near Liverpool Street station.

The stunt was organised by TV channel Turner Classic Movies as part of its 'Capture Your Classic' campaign, asking members of the public to re-make scenes from their favourite films.

Michael Jackson has inspired a number of people all over the World with his amazing talent and one group in particular are the 1,500 inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in this island province in the Philippines.

The inmates have been famous since their debut video of "Thriller" was released on Youtube in 2007.

Since Jacksons passing the inmates have done a tribute routine that required nine hours of rehearsal, stopping only to eat or when rain started to pour.

Check out both these videos, the inmates have done a great job paying tribute to the "King of Pop".

Two Amazing Performers

The last few weeks have been very sad, with the passing of "The King Of Pop" Michael Jackson and now the death of legendary Choreographer Pina Bausch.

If you remember our Post back in May about the First 3d Dance Film collaboration with Film producer Wim Wenders and Pina Bausch. The 3D feature was going into production this September.
We also posted a video of behind the scenes of MJ's up and coming tour.

Two amazing performers will be sadly missed.
