Madonna "Celebration" à Madame Tussauds à Hong Kong.
HONG KONG (December 17, 2009) – The flash of cameras filled Madame Tussauds Hong Kong today, as the attraction unveiled über-celebrity Madonna’s wax likeness, as well as hosting the “So You Think You Can Dance…Like Madonna?” competition, bringing an all-new interactive dance experience to guests just in time for the Christmas season.
During the event, the finalists got their groove on and went head to head live, before the attraction unveiled the superstar’s all-new look with the help of William Chan, one of the hottest local dance icons. The unveiling also marked the release of Madonna’s all-new greatest hits album “Celebration”, earlier in 2009.
“Madonna is undoubtedly the Queen of Pop, known for her high-energy dancing and singing that has rocked audiences and venues around the world. With the Christmas season fast approaching, our new interactive experience is set to immerse guests in excitement at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong like never before and help them celebrate the holidays with some unbelievable dancing fun,” said Bret Pidgeon, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong and Shanghai.
“In addition to posing with Madonna in her all-new costume inspired by her Sticky and Sweet Tour 2009, guests can put on a variety of props such as dazzling top hats, colourful wigs or flashy canes to transform into superstars themselves.”
Madonna’s wax figure will be on display in the Music Icon section, on her very own decked out stage. Dressed in a black ruffled jacket and frilly skirt, along with matching coloured gloves, boots and cane, Madonna’s wax counterpart is frozen in one of the singer’s signature poses with a microphone in one hand. Moving stage lights and a wall of multi-coloured lights will make guests feel as if they are centre stage with Madonna in front of thousands of adoring fans.
During the unveiling, judges also chose the winner of the “So You Think You Can Dance…Like Madonna?” competition, based on choreography, originality, relevance to Madonna, synchronisation, technique and costume. Sponsors included The Venetian® Macao-Resort-Hotel, Cirque du Soleil, Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay, and Warner Music. The winner received a 2-day 1-night Gold ZAIA Package from The Venetian® Macao-Resort-Hotel.
