Reality Rocks has covered dance shows for many seasons, and now Yahoo! Music has its own reality dance show, "Ready, Set, Dance!," for my blogging delight.

"Ready, Set, Dance!" is a new original dance competition series, in which two amateur-dancer contestants are warned that they will get a random phone call at any place, any time, from "RSD!" hostess Adrienne Bailon (of 3LW/Cheetah Girls fame), ordering them to break into a dance routine on the spot, while bystanders wonder WTH is going on. These dancers have no idea when that call will come in, but once it does, they have to get their groove on, no matter where they are at that moment. Then viewers will go to to vote for their preferred hoofer of the week, who'll be awarded 10,000 bucks.

This week's two "RSD!" contenders are snake-charming "tribal fusion" belly-dancer Zahra and affable old-school hip-hopper Mark. Zahra is commanded by Adrienne to show off some hot moves in the middle of eating a hot dog lunch (I'm serious), while Mark has to go up to bat at a Brooklyn Cyclones baseball game, busting a move centerfield to Young MC's classic "Bust A Move."

Zahra definitely is the more advanced dancer of the two, with superior and sexier moves (it's impressive that she can belly-dance with a belly full of Nathan's franks), so she's got my vote, but Mark has the right attitude, plus he has the tougher challenge (being forced to boogie in front of a stadium crowd). So watch their dances below, then go to to vote for who you think should win the money this week.
