It’s Week 3 of our 5th exciting season of Hooping Idol and the competition is super tight in our search for the next big hooper star. Welcome to Pop Music Week on Hooping Idol 5!
For those just tuning in, we put out the Season 5 Casting Call, introduced you to our 21 contestants and our special guest celebrity judges, then kicked things off spinning our way back to the early 1980’s for New Wave Week. In our New Wave Week Results Show, six were eliminated. Next came Disney Week and 5 more were sent home.
The term “Pop Music” was originally derived as an abbreviation for “popular” though it has come to mean something a little more specific these days, even if the genre in and of itself can be extremely eclectic. What will our Idols spin up this week for a shot at making their way one step closer to the title of Hooping Idol and our Ultimate Hooping Idol Prize Package? All we can really say is you’re in for a treat, because everybody takes a step up this week and knocks it right out of the ballpark. Our Top Ten contenders have all been schooled on Ten Easy Ways to Improve Your Hooping Video, were told to think outside the box and let their imaginations run wild, and they were reminded to bring it – because at the end of Pop Music Week, three more of them will be going home.
Seated at the judge’s table for season five are Rachael Lust of RachaelLust.com from Marion, Ohio, USA, Nick Broyd of Nick Broyd Hoop from Bristol, England, UK, Bunny Hoop Star of Hoop Empire in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, and Katie Sunshine of Katie Sunshine Hoops in Conway, Arkansas, USA. They’ll be sharing their thoughts and advice all season long when it comes to just what our Hooping Idol 5 contestants are up to.
This season our contestants will also be receiving mentoring advice publicly and behind the scenes from Hooping Idol’s host Philo Hagen. The Managing Editor of Hooping.org and two-time Hoopie Award winner for Video of the Year and Male Hooper of the Year will not, however, be scoring our contestants.
Our Ultimate Hooping Idol 5 Prize Package includes a Glamping Tent Package and performance showcase spot at Hoopcamp 2015 in Boulder Creek, California, USA, a coveted registration to the already sold out Austrian Hoop Convention in Vienna, Austria, an incredible registration to the German Hoop Convention in Hannover, Germany, as well as a registration to Australia’s hoop gathering – Hoopy Happenings in Sydney, Australia. Our new Hooping Idol will also be getting their hands on an amazing Atomic Evoke 4 Smart Hoop from Astral Hoops, two months of free advertising from Hooping.org to jumpstart their career or business, a $250 gift certificate from HoopSupplies.com, the fantastic fire hoop of their choice from Synergy Flow Arts, a $150 gift certificate to look great too from Hoopclothes.com, an Eco Hoop – the world’s first fully recycled plastic hoop – and a Hoop Revolution Core Foundation DVD from our friends at Hoop Revolution, plus the award winning hoop dance documentary The Hooping Life on DVD and a deck of super cool hooper playing cards.
A great big thank you to all of those in our community who have so generously donated prizes for this season, and to all of our judges for taking time out of their hectic schedules to share their thoughts with all of us this week.
So, are you ready for some Hooping Idol? Great, because it’s Pop Music Week on Hooping Idol 5 and we proudly present our Top Ten contenders in an order that was randomly drawn out of a hat.
