Over two years ago when Shake It Up premiered on Disney Channel, the first scene featured Rocky & Cece dancing on the train platform to BG5‘s infectious dance track Scratch. Shortly after the episode aired Hollywood Records announced they had signed the act. Six months later I had heard BG5′s management couldn’t come to terms with the label and they asked for their release. Late last year, the group under new management changed their name to YLA (Young LA) and began work to hit the ground running in 2013. Next week the group will be headed to the set of Shake It Up to shoot a segment for an upcoming episode. Hmmm… wonder if they might be headed back to Hollywood?
Here’s a little something to get excited about. Yesterday Nick Jonas captured a few moments from the studio on his iPhone and uploaded them to Ustream. It’s not much, but it’s more than enough to get fans excited for the Jo Bros return 2013.
