Looks like Simon Fuller may have another hit on his hands. After “American Idol,” “So You Think You Can Dance” and the Spice Girls, Fuller’s latest project is Now United, a global pop band with 11 teen artists from different countries.
Casting is still underway, and one hopeful, AC Bonifacio, is looking sharp in a video she posted on Instagram — with choreography by LA-based YouTube sensation Matt Steffanina.
Bonifacio was among those flown in for a Now United boot camp where she collaborated with Steffanina, known for working with Taylor Swift, Chris Brown and Snoop Dog.
They created a dance to Swift’s newly minted No.1 hit “Look What You Made Me Do.” And they liked the results so much that both of them posted it to their Instagram accounts, where it’s already racked up over a half million combined views.
Bonifacio, a Filipino-Canadian teen, has toured as a backup dancer with Ariana Grande, appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and won a 2016 TV dance competition with her duo “Lucky Aces.”
And this was Bonifacio’s second time working with Steffanina. In May, he chose her to appear in his dance video of the global smash hit song “Despacito.” She had impressed him so much after taking one of his dance classes in the Philippines, prompting him to give her the gig.
No word yet if she made the Now United cut, or when the “making of” coverage is expected to air. But you can be sure we’ll be covering it once it does.
