Friday Follies: The Brittango

What would it take at this point, bois & grrlz, to make up for Tuesday's shockingly disappointing "I Kissed a Girl" episode of Glee? A Troubletones performance featuring a tango from Brittany & Santana, perhaps? Sweetened just so with a side dish of waacking, a dance style popularized in black & Latino disco-drag clubs? Well, if you insist! Here it is: the Brittango.

 

 

It's no replacement for sweet lady kisses; but there is no question that this performance gets 4 out of 5 glitter bombs. It's nice to see Glee at least attempting a nod to queer black & Latino culture & style (though I think it's safe to say these girls could've used a tad more instructional time with a real queen on this one). Are you ready to go try out some waacking moves at the club this weekend?

Love this, but will not be trying any waack moves. For one thing, it's in 4-count time and everybody knows cowbois can only count to two when dancing (as in 2-step?).

Coach Beiste is great, but I wish Dot Marie Jones would stop tweeting in ALL CAPS. I feel like I'm being yelled at when her tweets show up in my newsfeed.

I also really love that they both dip each other when they tango...very queer egalitarian appropriation of heteronormative dance moves there!

I would totally suggest a live-tweet Glee-viewing/brittango double-dip fest if I didn't live so far away. Can't stay up that late on a Tuesday. Generally have to get my Gleek on on Wednesdays.

that's a rad idea

I'm not usually much good at those live viewing/tweeting parties, because I have a hard time splitting my attention between the show I'm trying to watch, my friends who are actually in the room trying to talk to me about it, AND trying to be witty on twitter all simultaneously. but perhaps our grand editorial director mistriss marcie might be down to post a live viewing party thread on tuesday...?
