Most people attend a Snoop Dogg concert to see Snoop, but during Jazz Fest in New Orleans someone else was there to unintentionally steal the show. No surprise there, since there were other acts lined up for the music festival including Stevie Wonder, Maroon 5, Lorde, Kings of Leon, Pitbull and Tom Petty but this thunder-stealer was not a big name. In fact, she isn’t even a musician.
Sign language interpreter Holly Maniatty showed off her skills during Snoop’s performance of 50 Cent‘s “P.I.M.P.” and we’re not sure who slayed it more — Snoop or Maniatty.
Just kidding, Holly definitely owned it, and her enthusiasm should be enough to promote her to headliner.
The Good Life Radio Show shared clips of Snoop’s performance but your eyeballs can’t help but focus on Maniatty. Because not only does she know every single word but girlfriend is IN IT, dancing to the beat like no one’s watching.
Except everyone is watching.
People reports that this is Maniatty’s specialty, and that she’s worked tons of concerts and festivals, featuring rappers like Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang Clan and Public Enemy. Honestly, how crazy would it be, to learn all the lyrics? According to Maniatty’s cousin, Anathea Draper, it’s a lot of hard work.
“She puts her all into studying each artist, not just the lyrics but the body language and gestures,” she wrote in the comments section of the video. “It’s all or nothing; go big or go home!”
We’d totally understand if Snoop never wanted Holly on tour with him or at any of his concerts ever again, since no one was paying attention to him. That being said, she only adds greatness to his performance so he might want to consider bringing her up on stage next time. All the time.
