Did anyone else notice how her dancing at the beginning and the end was flawlessy, exactly, the same. Watch her dance at the chorus bit at the start and then at the end. Perfectly similar, don`t you think?

Maybe some parts were a lil` off, but yeah, that rocks. I mean, whatever`s your instrument, go for it. A lil` different and maybe bizarre, but I was thinking, "How sweet is that?" If only I stuck to my own lessons. x_x

She`s an amazing violinist, but playing the Black Eyed Peas on violin is like playing Mozart on a cell phone ring tone.

Cy, you`re missing the point.

She was actually using an instrument that is amplified via electronics.

It`s different from a sampler machine and Garageband™. It requires talent. Same thing applies to dancing and singing. If you have at least one of those qualities, you are capable of art one way or another; as well as other intelligent things. And looking back, and watching America lately, we`re practically debunking all those talent classes.

BRING MUSIC BACK TO SCHOOLS!!!

Not bad. I liked the chorus part.

Violins make certain songs sound neater.

About her dancing; she got into the music it seems. I mean, when you can feel the music, you tune everything out, and act like a nut, but rock hard.

I appreciate more of you shmucks debunking new styles of music in this musically inept excuse of a world we live in. No wonder America`s full of dumbasses. Everything`s synthesized and artificial, all the way down to our artists.

Compare the 90s to today. Sure things weaned, but a decade ago definately had much better music than today by a longshot.

She did good for trying something new. Shut the frell up.

She is definitely very talented, and I thought it was pretty awesome. There`s no reason why she can`t play whatever music she wants to on violin, don`t be a snob. I`m sure she`s classically trained, but if she wants to play hip hop, then good for her. It makes it more unique.
Anyway, it was awesome...maybe you have to play violin to fully appreciate how hard it is to dance and play at the same time. That is pretty amazing.

and to thosr who said violin will never be cool again, you are lame. the violin is awesome. Its a total turn on when people play the violin.

and if they are hot like her, its all the better =)

Having played violin myself for 10 years, this is amazing. She works well with the music and actually puts a bit of creativity into it. That`s the best thing a violinst in this day and age can do. It`s not all about dead composers and symphonies - it`s about the music, and what better way to make people interested in an instrument than apply it to contemporary music?

I thought it was amazing - and for anyone else who likes it, I`d check out Lucia Micarelli as a rock violinist. She does some classically based music as well as more Indie style as well - she`s fantastic - and above all fun, something us violinists don`t get to have that often!

As for the dancing, I don`t think that was supposed to be the main focus of the video, so I wouldn`t bother worrying so much about that as her just playing.

Guys, she wasn`t playing. She might have played the music beforehand, but the video was about the dancing, which was stupid. The music was played back over it. And the music wasn`t that good.

Why do you think she had the camera so far back and kept moving around? So you couldn`t see her inability to PLAY the sh*t while doing that retarded dance sh*t.

I don`t think that her parents made her pick up the violin because she actually seemed like she was having fun and was doing pretty good...us classical music instrument people don`t mind having a break from the normal stuff once in awhile:)

Yes there are a bit of off key chords and a squeak in there, but over all I think that the runs were in there for a good purpose. Overall a good performance.

Just because she`s multitasking doesn`t mean it`s any better.

BEP is okay--by itself. The dancing is tolerable--by itself. Her violin playing is fine--by itself. Putting the three together doesn`t really make much sense to me. The violin playing didn`t seem to match the BEP song going on in the background--if it wasn`t playing, then I wouldn`t have cared. The dancing was just distracting and unnecessary. She could`ve just focussed on playing the violin.

Basically: It would`ve been fine if she was playing by herself and not trying to dance while playing the violin. It doesn`t really "enhance" it.

This was probably one of the sickest things I`ve heard in a long time. I`m a musician myself and I like every style of music especially hip hop. Not only is she a great violinist but she was able to blend two completely different styles of music together. The dancing was kind of silly but she was just getting into it like all musicians do when they play. Furthermore one of the dance moves she does in the middle I believe is a ballet move and it wasn`t that bad. Great Job.

<i> Varifael: Good skill with the violin, but why does it kind of look like the body of her violin is transparent? <i>

It`s an electric violin. Since it`s plugged into an amp, it doesn`t need a hollowed body to produce a carrying sound.

I wasn`t as weirded out as I thought I would be.

First, it was good playing-wise. It wasn`t all in tune, but I think she meant to sound like a sitar, sort of like in Within You Without You by The Beatles.

Second, it`s really hard to dance, play well, and memorize music like that. The fact that she pulled it off is awesome.

Had she actually tried to play the B.E.P. on violin, it would have been dire, but she didn`t. She was playing something that wasn`t really connected to the background song at all. It sounded like it was based on Turkish or Arabian music and I thought it worked on violin. She can play, but the dance stuff was a mess that let her down. It looked stilted. Dance is not her talent. She should ditch it and express herself with her instrument instead.

I prefer classical violin and classical music in general. It`s often wrongly thought of as dry and boring, when in fact it has tremendous vigour and passion. I suggest listening to a brilliant tenor singing `Dicitencello vuie` as an example. I prefer Jose Carreras, but there are others.

I do like to hear violin used in contempory music, though, if it`s done well. Sometimes even in classical music warped into contempory music, if the original composer is properly credited. Vanessa Mae can make that work, sometimes.

That was probably the second best violin solo ive heard (she used an open A and E a few times) , but there`s a guy in our middle school who can play behind his neck and do other crazy poo just as good, if not better.

BTW, any1 who says rap, death metal and all of today`s music requires no talent to play, playing it well is WAY tougher then most of last generation`s music

just cos a hip hop band sampled that song doesnt mean that she`s playing hip hop violin there.

and i love how black eyed peas get single handedly credited with that song when a million people have done a version. i thought Pulp Fiction was something everyone`s seen.

She`s got a lot of talent, the Violin is a beautiful instrument. I wouldn`t waste time with either on Hip Hop but it`s her art and Her Passion. I just doubt she`ll find a substantial audience.

Wow, that was terrible. Hopefully in a couple years she grows out of this phase and realizes how useless this was.

Why did it have to be Black Eyed Peas? And why couldn`t it have at least been Black Eyed Peas from the pre-Fergie era? At least they were making legitimate intelligent hip hop then.

I played violin when I was in grade school. I wanted to pursue playing the violin further. I chose hockey. With that said, I thought it was excellent. Some parts we recognizable. To jump around and dance like that takes more skill than most think. I think she needs to put down the bow and strum for a couple of notes.

I actually liked it! I like people who do things differently.
The dancing seemed a little odd at first but I think it`s mostly because you`ve always seen a person standing still..

Did anyone else think she looked like somevideo game character? Her moves, her hair, her body and her clothes. Maybe Kindom Hearts? :P

There`s no denying that she has some serious talent (on the violin at least). I just wish she could grasp the concept of "rocking out".

Why can`t you people give the music a chance? I thought it was good and I don`t even listen to Hip-Hop. Hypocrites.

She is pretty good with the violin: if not for the dancing and the introduction about rocking out with the Black-eyed Peas, the vid might even have been kind of cool.

new topic. anyone know why i have a untorn movie ticket sitting on my monitors base from 2002? its from a theater i dont go to. your guess is as good as mine. its from over 5 years ago... i lived on the other side of town then so it couldnt have just been sitting under that pile of origami the whole time. origami covers half my desk.

If it weren`t for her seizures that would be totally normal violin playing. Ignore the background music and it`s just run of the mill violin playing. It`s not bad but it`s nothing worth noting.

She should have checked first to see that there`s REALLY original violin play out there ;)

She sounded pretty good. Probably would have sounded better if she had stopped dancing around so much. And to everyone who thinks it’s a crime to play modern music on violins, stfu. There are no definitive rules in art. Even Mozart’s music was considered rebellious during his time.

By the way, anyone who liked this may also like the band Apacolyptica. I recommend checking out some of their Metallica covers.
