What is with females singers and the chicken dance? I'm starting to see it way too often. It appears to come with the other ridiculous epidemic: Shoes with 5" heels. No wonder these women can't walk across a stage with ease. Are those shoes really necessary? How many times do they have to visit orthopedic doctors?
The latest chicken dance siting was on Good Morning America. Nicole Scherzinger performing this morning did an abbreviated version, which amounted to a few steps to the viewers left. The move entailed walking across the stage as if you were tiptoeing in a Bugs Bunny cartoon while simultaneously moving the head front to back to mimic the walk of a chicken crossing the road. (no joke will follow)
Focus on the white chicken in this video.
The ultimate grande dame of chicken dancing is Carrie Underwood. I saw her open for Keith Urban a few years ago and she was all over the stage looking like she was ready to lay an egg. The move starts one minute into this video:
Lose the shoes and lose the dance. Have fun on stage. Do not be beholden to a 5" heel.
In this case, don't break a leg.
