Most of you got a live blog about the Howard University Step Show via my Tweets on Twitter, but for those of you who didn't...here goes a recap of all of the teams and their shows.
The name of this years step show was: Stepping Through Time...
The host of the show was Terrance from BET's 106 & Park, who for a second turned the show into a segment of just that. If it wasn't for the hundreds of Greeks surrounding the stage, judges up top, and steppers in the back, you would have thought it was the Terrence show.
1st up: Phi Beta Sigma
There was a break in the show, and Terrance took time to introduce the judges and Columbus Short, who was the guest judge.
They had a "West Side Story" theme. This was not a HU chapter, and it was really hard to hear their performance. They left me yearning for the HU team to appear out of nowhere and take the stage. (Who would have thought I would wish that?)
3rd: Iota Phi Theta
They had a Jazz and Blues theme. They went far with their theme, making sure to incorporate real instruments. Despite the musical breaks, I have seen better Iota shows.
There was another break in the show, where Terrance & Co-host played 90s sitcom themes.
Lance Gross, from House of Payne, took a moment to say hello to his Howard University family.
They had the 90s, and had a "Million Man March" theme going on. They wore all black military gear, with bullets going across their chest. The Que's surprised the audience with an actual theme because they were use to the usual "yard" show the Que's put on. The best part about the Que show was their stunt where they tossed two of their team members.
The winners of this year Homecoming Step Show were:
Alpha Kappa Alpha and Alpha Phi Alpha.
Congrats to all of the teams for wonderful shows. As a past stepper, I understand the time and energy it takes to put on a show during an HU step show. Congrats to the winners...and may next year be bigger and better.
