Video Seduction – #NRG Weekly Challenge!
One of the things I love most about Smule Sing! is how I’m continuously pushed out of my comfort zone. This is especially true since joining my two groups. For example, in eNeRGy, we have a weekly challenge, set and judged by the previous winner. A few weeks ago, Matt (NRG_Matt) set a video seduction challenge. This proved to be both hysterical and personally testing for all who participated.
Video Seduction Challenge Details
The challenge was to record the most seductive video possible. Now, I tend to shy away from video OCs or joins on Smule at the best of times. The mere thought of recording a video seduction made me spin slightly out of control. However, I was determined to do it. It definitely fueled some rather hilarious conversations in out chat room. We spent a lot of time discussing the best songs to sing and ways to look seductive. Suggestions included pouting, eating lollipops, twirling your hair…. you get the picture.
Which Song to Perform To?
I decided early on I wanted to sing I Just Want to Make Love to You by Etta James. The first few attempts didn’t work out too well though. I tried to open it as a group song, thinking I could add as many layers as I wanted. However, I kept messing up the parts and gave up.
I tried a few other songs. At one point I was almost certain I was going to do Close by Nick Jonas ft Tove Lo. It just so happened, that same week, our #GVU Weekly Theme was ‘Making Love’. I opened my first song choice as a video OC duet for that purpose. That seemed to work much better, so I eventually ended up joining my own OC for my challenge video.
I still cringe while watching it, but here it is. I actually had to tape my phone to a wall light fitting to hold it still!
