This episode we’re retracing the paths that led us to one of the seminal moments in music video history: 2001’s Lady Marmalade. Somehow, the fates brought us Missy Elliott, Mya, Pink, Lil Kim, and Christina Aguilera, strutting their stuff down in old Moulin Rouge. Along with our guest Colin Rourke, we’re taking another look at the videos released just before this legendary collab, and determining who worked the hardest to earn their corseted slot in the group. It’s an episode full of medium-difficulty choreography, broad comedy, and of course, that thing where Christina Aguilera’s hoodie is unzipped and inside there’s another Christina Aguilera. Listen!

On a very special episode this week, we welcome professional dancer Casey Johansen (La-La Land! Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance! The Alejandro video! The Emmys! The Oscars! So much more!) Casey has seen and done it all in the music video world, and he came prepared with behind-the-scenes scoop from rehearsals and Toni Basil sightings in the LA area. Together we're breaking down dancers good (Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul), and dancers…trying (Alanis Morissette, Ed Sheeran). Lace up your jazz shoes and join us as we take a look at our favorite choreography in video history. -- Follow the show: @musicvideopod Follow Ryan: @blackbeltjonz Follow Chris: @chrisjcoffin Follow Casey Johansen: @caseyajo -- Stream Hey Hey Ladies (A Demo For Fergie) at: https://soundcloud.com/chris-coffin/hey-hey-ladies
