7-year-old 'Single Ladies' draw criticism for viral video
A viral video of a young dance troupe performing Beyonce's "Single Ladies" at a contest in Pomona, CA has stirred up controversy in the media. The girls in Precision Dance range from seven to nine years old and appear dressed in hot pants, bra-style tops, and thigh-high stockings while dancing to the song.
There's no denying the girls' talent, but perhaps these particular costumes and gyrating dance moves would be better suited to someone at least old enough to get her learner's permit.
"There has been a great deal of controversy regarding this performance, and it has been taken out of context. It is a little sensitive now, to say the least," a rep for the dance competition tells PopEater.
What do you think, Zap2it readers? An innocent performance by some talented kids, or a glaring example of over-sexing the youth of America?
