In previous installments of Way Back Wednesday, we highlighted some of the best singers and dancers of our time but now it’s time for us to celebrate the few performers who have the ability to do both. These are the some of the most electrifying entertainers who leave us amazed in every way imaginable!
It takes a special type of talent to simultaneously sing, dance and engage an audience while remaining the centre of attention. Yet, artists such as Tina Turner, Prince and Beyonce prove that the feat is quite possible.
Watch some of the best live entertainers in action below:
Beyonce – ‘Deja Vu’
Bobby Brown – ‘My Prerogative’
Ike & Tina Turner – ‘Land of 1000 Dances’
James Brown – Medley
Janet Jackson – ‘Escapade’
Lady Gaga – ‘Bad Roman’/'Speechless’
Madonna – ‘Express Yourself’
Michael Jackson – Medley
Prince – ‘Get Off’
Usher – ‘U Remind Me’
Whenever there is an award show, people eagerly await the moment when a great allround entertainer hits steg stage to help raise the energy levels of the show. Yes, singers with powerful voices are always always a treat but there is no doubt that the conversations that follow the show always involve the names Beyonce, Lady Gaga or Usher, for instance.
However, as the industry continues to change, truly talented live performers are now rare. Artists now have the luxury of being called “great” because of their bright hair colours and catchy tunes that leave fans in such a deep trance that they don’t realise that they are being dazzled with nonsense.
Which of these performers is your favourite? Rank them in order of most impressive to least impressive! Also, should anybody else be on this shortlist?.
