Tell 'em what this is... TeenFest!

TeenFest 2K14, the 10-year anniversary, was one of the books. The contestants were on fire, the judges were plugged in, the audience was hyped and DJ Travis Gales kept everyone moving like an old episode of Soul Train. Big ups to Aycock Middle School Marching Pride of Excellence Drum line and Dance Team (DDT) for setting the tone for our big-10 celebration with drums, cymbals, twirling batons, flags, hig steps and flips. Love Jones Girlz  kicked off the concert portion dancing with choreographed moves like New Edition and harmonies like The Supremes, gaining new fans along the way. Celebrity judges Full Force brought the audience to its feet performing renditions from their own music catalogs and works from other artists they've worked with. Trina Braxton thrilled the audience when she joined Full Force onstage to perform the final song of the event,  "Look Good, Feel Good, God Good," from their new "With Help From Our Friends" CD. Aycock DDT also returned to the stage for this grand finale. (Read more...)
