With 20 Musicians and 11 Dancers
On this season’s second “Dancing with the Stars Results Show,” three-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist Seal and Grammy-nominated singer Janelle Monáe will perform. “Macy’s Stars of Dance” also returns and a second couple will be eliminated from the competition, on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Accompanied by “Dancing with the Stars” pros Cheryl, Chelsie, Kym and Lacey, renowned singer/songwriter Seal will perform his hit song “Weight of My Mistakes.” Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Janelle Monáe will perform her recent hit “Tightrope.”
The season’s first “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance will feature a magical and dramatic aerial act from Emmy-nominated choreographers Rich and Tone Talauega. The performance will involve a complete transformation of the “Dancing with the Stars” set, spectacular aerial work by Airealistic — an aerial theatre company — with a guest orchestra including 20 musicians and 11 the most talented dancers in the industry today.
Internationally acclaimed vocalist and songwriter Seal will release his sixth studio album, Seal 6: Commitment, in the U.S. on September 28th on Reprise Records. The first single is “Secret,” a deeply moving, string-laden ballad that ranks among Seal’s finest love songs. Commitment finds the London-born, three-time Grammy Award winner re-teaming with renowned music maestro David Foster, who also produced 2008’s Soul, Seal’s stunning covers collection of soul classics. Over the course of a remarkable career that spans more than two decades, Seal has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and enjoyed success across numerous genres of music. His emotional, romantic love songs such as “Prayer for the Dying,” the Grammy Award-winning “Kiss from a Rose,” “Don’t Cry” (all from 1994’s Seal II) and “Love’s Divine” (from 2003’s Seal IV) delighted fans and earned him critical acclaim. He has also seen great success in the dance/pop music world, beginning with his roots in Britain’s house music/rave scene with his debut 1991 album and returning to those roots with 2007’s dance floor-friendly System. In 2008 Seal released Soul – a stunning compilation of classic soul songs delivered with Seal’s unique, signature touch. A No. 1 album in France, Soul remained atop the album chart for 13 consecutive weeks. For more on Seal, including his personal blog, photos, and videos, please visit www.seal.com
Wondaland Arts Society/Bad boy recording artist Janelle Monáe recently released her first full-length LP, The ArchAndroid, to critical acclaim. The album includes the first single, “Tightrope,” featuring Outkast’s Big Boi. The debut album realizes the next chapter in the story of Cindi Mayweather, the heroine of Monáe’s debut album, Metropolis. She has been sent to free the citizens of Metropolis from the Great Divide, a secret society using time travel to suppress freedom and love throughout the ages. The ArchAndroid is a soaring, orchestral trip enlivened with blockbuster vocals,
mysterious imagery, and notes of 60s pop and jazz. Monáe enlisted the talents of the Wondaland ArchOchestra to realize her sound. Elaborate orchestral arrangements were composed and conducted by Nate “Rocket” Wonder and Roman GianArthur for Wondaland Productions. Featured guests include the legendary Big Boi of OutKast, renowned poet Saul Williams, the psychedelic dance-punk troupe Of Montreal and punk prophets Deep Cotton. The ArchAndroid blends the talents of executive producers Nate Wonder, Chuck Lightning, Janelle Monáe and Sean “Diddy” Combs with co-executive production by Big Boi of Outkast. The track’s companion video – directed by Wendy Morgan (Gnarls Barkley, Bloc Party) – recently premiered across a range of MTV platforms, including MTV.com, mtvU, MTV Hits, MTV Jams, and VH1 Soul. She is also focusing her talents on a deluxe graphic novel version of the album, entitled The Red Book, as well as Dance Or Die, the 18-chapter ArchAndroid music video collection. Following the success with the Grammy-nominated debut EP Metropolis, Suite I: The Chase, Monáe spent time traveling the world on tour, joining such artists as No Doubt, Paramore and Erykah Badu on dates in various cities around the globe.
