Paging Kevin Federline: Beyonce’ Needs Backup Dancers

Just kidding, K-Fed, you’ll remain unemployed throughout 2007–call it a hunch.

From a recent article at the Houston Chronicle, Beyonce’ has moved scouting for backup dancers to Houston, Texas.

After holding auditions in Atlanta and Los Angeles, Beyonce’s search for 40 of the most talented dancers in the country stopped in Houston on Saturday.

Women were dressed in hoodies, dance shorts and dangerously high heels, while men were in tank tops and sweat pants. They lined the Barbara King Studios in Bellaire three-deep, hoping for their 30-second shot of fame.

In all, 30 people from each city will be chosen and flown to either New York or Los Angeles. From there, the group of women and men, who had auditioned earlier in the day, would be whittled down to 40. Gaston told the anxious hopefuls that although it would be hard work, the payoff was worth it.

“This is a great opportunity for you if you make it,” choreographer Frank Gaston told the women. “You earn between $1,500 and $3,000 a week, but beyond that, the fringe benefits are amazing. Beyonce’ performs all over, and she will need backup dancers for those performances,” he said.

Perhaps they should televise it ala “Grease: You’re The One That I Want”. I’d watch it.
