Missy Elliott Looks To The Public For Back Up Dancers


(AllHipHop News) Missy Elliott has invited the public to audition to become one of her backing dancers.

The hip-hop star posted an advert on Twitter on Monday night (June 5), informing fans that open auditions for dancers would take place in Atlanta, Georgia on June 9.

The advert requested those who auditioned be skilled as “hip-hop & trickster” dancers, and asked them to “Do your research on Missy!”

Missy, real name Melissa Arnette Elliott has remained largely inactive as an artist for a decade due to a battle with the autoimmune disorder Graves’ disease.

After appearing at American football’s showpiece Super Bowl event with Katy Perry in 2015, she released a comeback single, “WTF (Where They From),” but is yet to put out a new album.

The 45-year-old musician’s next concert is at Los Angeles’ Exposition Park on 22 July (17), but she is yet to announce a full tour.
