Hooping Idol 5: It’s Science Fiction Week!

sciencefictionweek It’s Week 4 of our 5th exciting season of Hooping Idol and we’re down to 8 amazing finalists in our search for the next big hooper star. Welcome to Science Fiction Week on Hooping Idol 5, and with a theme like Science Fiction Week it’s pretty exciting!

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 we 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 up came Disney Week and 5 more were sent home. After that we had a great time with Pop Music Week and thanks to a tie only 2 more were eliminated.

The term “Science Fiction” deals with imaginative content such as futuristic settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, time travel, faster than light travel, parallel universes and extraterrestrial life. As we said last week, “While their skills and creativity have allowed each of them to make it this far, it’s time for them to really develop a good story for us too. With Science Fiction Week anything is possible, and we’re expecting the unexpected. Think outside the box. Put calls out for support if you need it. Let your imaginations run wild. Spin up a hooping tale like none we’ve seen before.” They were reminded of our Ten Easy Ways to Improve Your Hooping Video, and they were reminded to bring it – because at the end of Science Fiction Week, three more of them will be going home.
