‘Making the Band’ Tour: Show Stoppin’ in L.A.

The “Making the Band” tour made its way to Los Angeles for the final stop at The Wiltern on Monday. Bad Boy’s finest took the spotlight as MTV video crews filmed the show for an upcoming season of “Making the Band.”

Ohio native Cheri Dennis was up first. The R&B singer performed her singles “I Love You” and “Portrait of Love” before heartthrob Donnie Klang hit the stage for a 10-minute set. The mostly female audience went wild as he danced his way through “Dr. Love” and “Take You There.”

Next up to bat were the guys from Day26, whose set included their second single “Since You’ve Been Gone” and a slowed down version of “Exclusive” featuring Donnie on the piano. Robert, Willie, Brian, Mike, and Q ended with “Got Me Going” and announced that in addition to being the final stop on the tour, it was also Mike’s birthday.

Diddy came out to present the main attraction, Danity Kane. Before introducing the platinum-selling group, Diddy told the crowd to never accept bitchassness, keep God first, and follow their dreams. Based on the screams, it was clear who the audience was there to see. Aubrey, Aundrea, D. Woods, Dawn, and Shannon transformed from dolls into sex kittens live onstage with the opening number “Bad Girl.” Aubrey showed off new tattoos on her neck with the barcodes from DK’s two albums. The girls got a little naughty with Donnie during “Right Now” and gave Day26 lap dances while performing “Ecstasy.” They closed with “Show Stopper” and “Damaged.”

Dawn thanked the crowd and told them that dreams do come true. That living proof was on display Monday night.
