Shaq Vs. Justin Bieber (VIDEO)
Yes, it’s true. The bigger-than-life Shaq has taken on teen YouTube sensation Justin Bieber to a dance off and a sing-off. We already know how Shaq sounds when he’s singing. Check out how he dances.
Shaq originally challenged Bieber in Arizona, using his FB (facial recognition) to get into the stadium. Shaq did used to rock. Shaq got a bit of a shock. He was almost literally invisible to the Justin Bieber fans.
Shaq challenged Bieber to dancing, singing, bowling and a few other challenges like basketball. There’s some singing and dancing at the bowling alley. You have to watch the full episode to see that.
For those who don’t know, “Shaq Vs.” is an ABC reality show in its first season. The show which premiered on 18 August 2009 takes basketball star Shaquille O’Neal and had him challenge “top athletes in their own sports.” This season, season two, has non-sporting matches.
In the show, UFC play-by-play announcer Mike Goldberg gives us a description of the action and serves as one of the co-hosts. Charissa Thompson is the co-host and sideline Thompson. Shaq negotiates a handicap and, of course, does some trash talking. Actually, Shaq’s commentary is really funny.
The Justin Bieber challenge aired last night, 31 August 2010 and included Shaq challenging Jimmy Kimmel in Hollywood. Shaq revealed that this wasn’t really a challenge, but a chance to become the number one dad of the world. Shaq commented, “You just given me the advantage to give them extra chores and extra homework.” This challenge was more of a win-win.
