Electric Circus
Best idea ever! For one night only on New Year's Eve, MuchMusic will be bringing back a staple for many of us Canadian Kids who grew-up in the late '80s and '90s on weekends, Electric Circus! The live televised Dance Party once aired in a 90-minute slot and in its prime featured then-new Artists like Britney Spears, Aqua, Martha Wash, Take That and many more.  I remember being glued to my Television Set mindlessly entertained and wishing I could be as cool as the Electric Circus Dancers, normally clad in something barely-there, shiny, sheer and from Le Château.

Electric Circus: NYE Dance Party will air Saturday December, 31 from 10:00 PM EST to 12:15 AM EST and go live-to-air from the Rooftop at Bell Media's 299 Queen Street West Building. Tyrone "T-RexXx" Edwards and Liz Trinnear will host and two $5,000 Prizes will be given away.

Starting tomorrow from home, we can vote for the Favourite Video of 2011, which also will happen to be the first Video to air in 2012.  Finalists are as follows:

LMFAO ft. Lauren Bennett, GoonRock - Party Rock Anthem
Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris - We Found Love
Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer - Give Me Everything
David Guetta ft. Usher - Without You
Britney Spears - Till The World Ends

Arguably the Show's top Host, Monika Deol, unfortunately will not be coming back! In case you really have nothing planned for New Year's Eve, there you go...
