She's a little bit country. He's a little bit Rock n' Roll. That's right. I am talking about Donny and Marie Osmond, the most famous brother-sister group of all time. I loved them growing up. However I never expected to still be talking about them all these years later. What can I say? America loves the Osmonds. Now in case you have no idea who they are and want more information here is a synopsis about Donny and Marie from their official website. Enjoy!
The show starts out with Donny & Marie singing a medley of "Get the Party Started," "Dancing in the Streets" and "Knock on Wood," accompanied by a group of talented back up dancers.
They also sing a new song, "Vegas Love," from their latest album -- the first they have recorded together in 30 years.While they may be best known as a team, both Donny and Marie found significant success as solo artists as well and the show gives them each a chance to highlight their individual achievements.
For Marie's turn in the spotlight, she sings her most well-known song, "Paper Roses," along with some of her other country favorites, accompanied by two guitar players.
She also heats things up with a mash up of "Walk this Way" and "These Boots Were Made for Walking," accompanied by male dancers.
Marie has a strong voice and shows her considerable range by belting out a flawless version of the operatic piece "Pie Jesu."As everyone knows, it's Donny who was always a little bit rock 'n' roll, and the show switches gears for his solo set.He appears out of fog on stage in to rock his 1989 comeback hit "Soldier of Love."Donny, a "Dancing with the Stars" winner, shows off some of his moves and some funky choreography on "Yo Yo" while footage of him and his brothers dancing during the '70s plays on a screen behind the stage.
Even though Donny likes to rock, it was his love ballads that made him an official heartthrob and he doesn't disappoint the longtime fans, singing well-known hits like "Puppy Love," accompanied by footage of him during his teenage years."This is the part where all of the women would scream," says Donny in the middle of "Puppy Love," which of course, elicits screams from the female members of the audience. "I've still got it!" he proclaims.
Donny and Marie reunite on stage toward the end of the show, singing some of their classic hits like "Make the World Go Away," "Morning Side of the Mountain" and "Deep Purple."The intimate 750-seat showroom at the Flamingo is a perfect fit for Donny and Marie, offering a good view from just about any seat and allowing the performers to walk out into the audience and get close to their fans. The classic Vegas-style room features booths and tables and contributes to the feeling of nostalgia the duo evokes with their show.
Makes you want to hop on a plane to Las Vegas right now doesn't it. Be advised that as of now the show is playing a limited engagement during the month of February only. However I would not be surprised if they return again soon. By the way for those of you looking to get tickets to see Donny and Marie you are in luck.
