Romelo has been on the Unified Dance Crew longer than I have and as long as Ive known him, hes always been such a hardworking, talented dancer, said Milan Ramos, the president of the Unified Dance Crew. When the manager of the halftime show reached out to me and asked if I had any African American/Hispanic male dancers, Melo was the first person that came to mind. He then sent in an audition tape of him freestyling to one of The Weeknds songs and the rest was history. He earned his way into two major dances: The Weeknds House of Balloons and Blinding Lights, but this gig was so high-profile that he had to keep it a secret from his family and friends.

Anything New? Super Bowl Fans Swarm the Streets
02/19/2021 9:43pm

By Gabriela Mendez History repeats itself as fans taking to the streets in celebration of their home team winning the Super Bowl. After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers secured the win on Sunday, Feb. 7 large gatherings of people got out of control as some were seen removing street signs, tossing barricades, and climbing street lights. This being the Buccaneers Super Bowl second win since January 2003 with a score of 31-9 being led by Tom Brady at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa against the Kansas City Chiefs . Immediately following the game at least thousands of fans could be seen through social media posts swarming the streets. I really think overall it went well, said Tampa Police Department TPD chief Brian Dugan to Tampa Bay News. When you look at the big picture, the thousands of people who are celebrating, a very small group of people cause problems. Yet, some believe that TPD did not handle the gathering of people appropriately and should have made more efforts to disperse the groups. They did more action at a civil BLM protest where they actually wore masks versus this gathering of crazy, stupid, drunk college kids wearing no mask, said Avianna ...

The Weeknd’s Performance Triggers Social Media Users
02/19/2021 9:34pm

By Lisa Striffolino The Super Bowl LV Halftime Show starred The Weeknd on Sunday, Feb. 7 in Tampa Bay, who gave a performance that received some mixed reviews. The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, gave the 25,000 socially-distanced viewers a 13-minute performance that featured himself singing a mix of some of his top hits, such as Starboy, Blinding Lights, Cant Feel My Face, and I Feel It Coming. Many of the visuals throughout the performance definitely lived up to the Blinding Lights title. In fact, the strobe lighting used during the show is actually what sparked some controversy among watchers. There was no flash warning for those at home with light-related health risks, said Nicole Wusaty, who grew up with epilepsy. Overall it was a good performance, but I was disappointed. We need to do better. Wusaty said that she has begun to notice just how oblivious our society is to simple, avoidable issues such as this. Another part of the show that drew some criticism was when the 30-year old singer was spinning around in a golden, lit-up maze. It was an aspect of the performance that made viewers feel dizzy and disoriented while the star was ...
