New Video: Alex Gaudino & Kelly Rowland – ‘What A Feeling’

Published: Saturday 7th May 2011 by Sam

Kelly Rowland dons her dancing shoes in the video for ‘What A Feeling’ – her collaboration with Italian DJ, Alex Gaudino.

Directed by Frank Gatson, the vibrant clip comes at the aptest of times; for, with the (Europe-only) song now playlisted at every major radio station across the UK, its visual will no doubt give it a boast as the summer approaches.

Check out Ms. Kelly soaking up and the sun and dancing up a stom after the jump…

Favouring Rowland’s ‘Forever & A Day’ video, this excels where the former did and didn’t. Vibrant, lush, and colourful, the clip really captures the essence of the song well. What’s more, with choreography having been absent from many of Rowland’s Dance offerings, she delivered on that front too (kudos to Chris Grant on routine). That said, I’m still waiting for Kelly pop, lock, and drop it as she did in the ‘Lose My Breath’ video. I guess with the right song?

In any case, good stuff.

Randomness: Was that Rihanna in that dusty red wig?

{Thanks Emrah!}

    It reminds me of the remixed version of Whitney Houston’s Queen Of The Night!

    Kelly Looks…..yummy lol! This is great

    Absolutely becoming more of a fan of Kelly like i used to back when she was in DC. Such growth she has shown 😉

  13. Chinny May 7, 2011

    LOL the person in the “Dusty Red Wig” was Ashley Everett

  14. fio May 7, 2011

    it’ll be a hit in europe.
    great body and dance

  15. WonderLand19 May 7, 2011

    The song is boring and generic. I prefer her other song.
    P.s there was no need for the shade about rihanna sam. And iam not even a rihanna fan.

    i hope motivation does well.

  16. b**** please May 7, 2011


  17. royalkev May 7, 2011

    This wasn’t my favorite song by Kelly, but it certainly was my favorite video she’s ever done. She look good and this does a lot for her! Great performance and over all look!

  18. Part Boy May 7, 2011

    kelly looks great in the vid and the picture above..Travelocity giving away $1000 Giftcards for anywhere in US..just for giving them your email..haha..My whole fam got 1

  19. Thedimplepuppet May 7, 2011

    Kelly’s waist is #RIDICULOUS

  20. Joan May 7, 2011

    Good Morning:
    It is a good video. Kelly it your time.

  21. trucie May 7, 2011

    YES B****. She not shines in this vid but straight killed it. LOL luvs it!

  22. trucie May 7, 2011

    (CORRECTION) I meant not only does she shine in the vid but straight killed it!

  23. aisha May 7, 2011

    LOL! aww, sam already misses tr3nt, throwing shade at Riri! u KNOW it wasn’t her! love the vid, though, and very happy for kelly! i’m not one to predict how it’d go, though, if put out on the am market (even though it’s not her song), given that everyone including myself didn’t think motivation would be so big. One never knows…. don’t know if this’ll go through…. lol!


    @Velvet Roulette LMAO GIRL STOP. Motivation is shitting all over other females songs in the urban world and also heading for the top 40 in the pop world. QUEEN B hasnt said one word about RTWG and its still charting around the world. To bad ur favs has to get naked on magazines and be seen everywhere, when they have a single coming and QUEEN B hasnt promoted at all and THE DANCE DIVA havent promoted that much. So the only flop i know is YOU! Aww, look at THE DANCE DIVA AKA KELLY ROWLAND, she looks so good. Your fav wish she could look that beautiful. Get ready haters, shes coming, to snatch wigs, left and right!!! HATERS ARE HER MOTIVATION! @Trent Im waiting for that Kelly too. If that Kelly comes back, which i know she will, considering Frank Gatson is on her team, its over for ur favs. Kelly will own the award show performances. The only female that could see her is QUEEN B.

  25. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 7, 2011

    Kelly is drop dead gorgeous- period! Love the song & love the video! Get it Kelly!!!!

  26. Educated Diva May 7, 2011

    Luv the video & dancing! Awesome Kelly!

  27. Milan May 7, 2011

    so i guess now kelly has a new song beyonce will release her clip also soon …. b****

  28. bey’knight May 7, 2011


    i think like me, ur not a huge fan of dance genre but am glad kelly’s doin it cus her voice is effortless on it plus kelly’s finally carving her own niche and gaining her own identity. somebody referred to as queen of dance, i can totally see her holding up that title esp in europe

    forever and a day meets motivation is the perfect description for this video …and its all kelly! there’snow such a thing as “kelly rowland swagger”

  29. Fleur May 7, 2011

    Kelly did so good here.
    Everything [lyrics, vocal, beat, video] is on point . It’s the first time I’ve heard this song Sam. Like Motivation, I like this one instantly.

  30. MusicalGenius May 7, 2011

    WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRK!!! I feel like a proud little brother!!! Ms. Kelly is OWNING the game right now! Stepping in and out of genres flawlessly! Can not wait for this album…it may have taken a year in the making but no doubts that it’ll all be worth it!

  31. RoyWilliams May 7, 2011

    she got all the Beyonce’s male backup dancers in her video..D.LOL ……….Kelly cant do it on her own ps is that Ashley Everett in the video

  32. bey’knight May 7, 2011


    pls dont start that this, there’s more than enough room for kelly and beyonce especially as they ahve different sounds and vibes

  33. Fleur May 7, 2011

    With Motivation, What A Feeling, Forever In A Day, Rose Colored Glasses, and Commander, these albums are already very solid ones Kelly. Well deserved success is overdue.

  34. TRD May 7, 2011


  35. NICK May 7, 2011


  36. BeyStan May 7, 2011

    I liked it. Video was super cute too. Her 2nd best video after Forever And A Day.
    Her Woooh’s reminded me of Whitney

  37. Fleur May 7, 2011


    Does this mean WAF cannot also be on one of her albums and a part of her live sets?

  38. Moonwalker May 7, 2011

    I loved it! So glad to see Kelly bust some moves for a change! I´ve always preferred Kelly instead of Beyoncé. I still miss Destiny´s Child though…

  39. GLYNNTALE May 7, 2011

    yesssssssssssssssssss salyyy Ms kelly. you know you got it in you babe..


  40. Lostonez May 7, 2011

    kelly just made me loose my breathe..i love this song and video

  41. ヅ•·.·´¯`·.·•-ΛALEXISR-♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ★ ☆ ✰ T.I.P.•·.·´¯`·.·•ヅ May 7, 2011

    She’s REL S*** horse! On a serious note though, that was her best video in a while. She’s got a hit now in the US but no real promo yet.

  42. JEJE May 7, 2011

    No that was not Rihanna it was Beyonce’s lead backup dancer Ashley

  43. dblog May 7, 2011

    Like TRD said, ITS NOT HER SONG. ITS ALEX GAUDINO. So for those who are throwing shade, dont forget, its not her single!

  44. Jamie May 7, 2011


    May 7, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    she got all the Beyonce’s male backup dancers in her video..D.LOL ……….Kelly cant do it on her own ps is that Ashley Everett in the video

    Interestingly enough, Kelly used to date a guy named Roy Williams. I guess his gay ass would’ve said something like this–let alone remember what ALL of Beyonce’s male dancers look like. SMH!!!

    Anyway, none of those dancers danced for Beyonce so….NEXT!!!!!!

    The video is amazing. I always love to see Kelly get down and actually dance. She still has it. I would like more solo scene dancing though! Job well done to say the least!

  45. tera May 7, 2011

    i think kelly feel sixteen again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. Siria May 7, 2011

    How can she dance so energetically in those high heels? thought she would break her leg. I love the video too

  47. magic May 7, 2011

    those are the dancers she used for her motivation video stop trying to bring bey into this.. they both doing their things.. bey will kill the charts once she start promoting RTW.. and well kelly she already going for number 1 on billboard hip hop RnB so take a seat

  48. Auntie Jackie May 7, 2011

    Great video! Why no release in the U.S.? It’s a great song too. Both Beyonce and Kelly haven’t done much in the way of promotion for their songs. I’d like to see them both be in the top 10, they’ve got true talent! I have to say Kelly’s voice is my favorite, while Beyonce’s performances are my favorite thing of hers.

    They aren’t in competition…..

  49. Tina May 7, 2011

    The difference between Kelly having Beyonce’s male dancers is that she can keep up with them in their moves. Bey aint much of a foot dancer, she’s more of a arms moving, head shaking, & ass popping dancer. kelly got the MOVES, she can really dance.

  50. Princess May 7, 2011

    Love it. Kelly is doing her thing. I loving her music right now from motivation to what a feeling. GO KELLY!!!!

  51. magic May 7, 2011

    yes @tina there

  52. muni May 7, 2011

    Kelly has her own swagga, I LOVE This woman so much. This song is AMAZING it will do really well here in UK and even in US. MOTIVATION is everything !!

    Whoa LOVER!!
    Go GO GO GO baby Imma be ur MOTIVATION!!

  53. Marcel May 7, 2011

    Wonderful video from Ms. Rowland. Thanks to Stefan from The Kelly Rowland Network (formerly for ripping the video and posting it online

  54. Kyle May 7, 2011

    Kelly is honestly the sexiest piece of dark chocolate out there. Wow, those legs! As much as “Motivation” has grown on me and as much as I am happy that it is achieving so much early success stateside, I still favor her dance songs. She just sounds so free and happy on all these songs. Glad to see her dancing a bit in this video too. Work it Kelly!!

  55. jay May 7, 2011

    Kelly brought the heat with the Motivation video and she kills in in the What A Feeling video!!!!!!

    she is on her A – game!! Go Kelly

    she is becoming quite the Summer Anthem Queen!

  56. Greg May 7, 2011

    People are always talking about Beyonce’s s** appeal but Kelly is just as gorgeous if not more! & I’m so glad she’s finally making waves with her music!!!

  57. sense May 7, 2011

    O Kelly!!!!!…what an amazing artist!

  58. Rob J May 7, 2011

    HAAAAWWWWTTT Miss Kelly! LOL but seriously those steps were sweet and fresh. I love how kelly is so elegantly s*** and hip! Vocally Whitney Houston is all over this song! She better channel her Favorite singer! 🙂 Love her

  59. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 7, 2011

    @ Rob J, didn’t she channel Whitney on this song???!!!! Yes!!!! @ 1:39-1:42 and @ 2:41-2:46 you can really hear it.

    Kelly can sing for real!!! Cannot get enough!

  60. MrIncredible May 7, 2011

    Is this the crap you people listen to in the UK? Alrighty then…

  61. VFB May 7, 2011


  62. tooposh May 8, 2011

  63. tooposh May 8, 2011

    and i love how she dressd! soo s***

  64. tooposh May 8, 2011

    kelly is a dancer! she’s good!

  65. Dave May 8, 2011

    KELLY SLAYED! Her vocals were insane. & she’s f***** beautiful. I mean Kelly is so fineee. It should be against the damn law. & she’s one of the few artist who can effortless do quality, top-notch urban & euro-pop dance records. Only Kelly. Her album WILL SLAY! The endd…

  66. Sarah May 8, 2011

    OMG I hate how Kelly is so damn creative and original, and makes real music, and has her own style and aint copyin nobody, but she NEVER gets the recognition she desserves, mean while that fake drag queen lookin Beyonce get the attention for being the complete oppesite of what I just said about Kelly. I hope 1 day that reverses, in fact I know it will cause Bey’s popularity is running dry and when your not creative and real like Kelly is, you cant bounce back. Kelly’s always gonna do her own thing and she dont care how much attention or money she get, she aint a money pig like Bey. So Kelly thanks for keepin it real, we gon make sure you get yo #1 girl!!!

  67. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 8, 2011

    Sarah, my question to you is WHY do you have to bring up Bey?

    Been a fan of Kelly’s and Beyonce’s since DC. Love them equally. Why must we continue to pit them against each other? The only thing they have in common is that they are both African American women who grew up in the south and they both were once in a group called Destiny’s Child. That’s it.

    They make completely different types of music.

    I understand your frustration in terms of Kelly not getting the recognition that she deserves. I have felt this and continue to feel this frustration because I am such a huge fan of Kelly’s but I never have put this reality on Beyonce. Doesn’t this say MORE about the people who consume music rather than Beyonce? Remember, we are dealing with people who think that Lady Gaga invented dance music (wow). BTW, love Gaga but I also know music.

    Kelly is a brilliant talent & just because people refuse to doesn’t mean that Beyonce has anything to do with it. These people simply don’t get it. This is nothing new in the pop world. Usually the most people talented people are overlooked: see Janelle Monae.

    With that said, I’m loving how are you are going hard for Kelly!!!! 🙂

  68. Sarah May 8, 2011

    Well thanks, I ALWAYS go hard for Kelly and originators. I dont even like it when people call her the queen of dance now, because she does so many different types of music and looks, dance may be the main singles, but the girl can hang in any genre perfectly. And I like that she really dances like someone said earlier, she’s not being showed up by her background dancers (like Bey) she can keep up wit them and get DOWN on the flo. She reminds me of Janet in that her dance style and moves are getting more recognition than her vocal talents, and she’s not being apreciated enough for what she can do vocally. She’s not the best vocalist on the planet but (like Janet) she can really SING some songs but when she does get recognition its always for the dance songs.

    I pit them against each other because I think Kelly’s better. Beyonce is the better vocalist, but she aint creative, and she dont have her own style and image, and never did, Kelly always did. And Kelly was always thinking out side of the box as far as her image and sound, while Bey was always safely in the box, and doing the same type on songs and styles that she got from others, kelly always kept her own. And its aggravating to see someone so classic and original being put aside for someone so phony and safe. But thats my opinion (mixed with facts) even with proof some disagree. But thats how I see it.

    Tho we disagree on my feelings about Bey, Im glad you can understand where Im coming from. And all I want is the BEST for kelly, I love her and really dig her style and music, and I think we need more and more black women like her who arent afraid to think outside the box the way she does.

  69. Misty Jean May 8, 2011

    Great voice, great song, GREAT BODY! Damn she can get it and this is coming from a straight girl! Rihanna and Bey better watch out! Europe, he she comes!

  70. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 8, 2011

    @ Sarah, love your post! I’m feeling you even more on your frustration now! 🙂

    The fact of the matter is that Kelly is TRAGICALLY underrated and i cannot wait to see her get her just desserts! She is BEYOND so many people who are being shoved down our throats who are supposed to read as “talented” that’s it’s becoming more and more difficult to deal with the foolishness.

    I know that Beyonce falls into this category for you & I will not fight you on that anymore, but just let us hope that Kelly will get the shine that she truly deserves.

    I mean, “When Love Takes Over,” “Commander,” “Forever and a Day,” “Motivation,” “Forever and a Day,” and, now, “What a Feeling” should be enough, right? All dope as hell!

    Kelly is doing precisely what she’s supposed to do–people need to catch up. It’s sad to see how LATE people truly are.

  71. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 8, 2011

    My bad for posting “Forever and a Day” twice– love that song! lol!

  72. Sarah May 8, 2011

    And thats what I LOVE about Kelly, she’s a true artist/musician, she’s gonna continue to make the music she wants to make wheather or not it’s popular or “hott”. She’s gonna be herself and do her, and what works for her, she’s not going to try to be Bey or Gaga or Britney for hits and attention. She’s gonna be Kelly, and she’s gonna be Kelly with 10million albums sold or 10thousand copies sold. And thats so rare today, and ofcourse you know who I think couldnt do that, but I wont dwell on that.

    But I know she’ll be the bigger star she desserves to be 1 day, may not be soon but 1 day (and folks will wanna kick themselves for sleeping on some GREAT Kelly tracks (Commander, Cant Nobdy). Cause talent like that never goes forever unoticed, but when it is unoticed it feels like forever.

  73. Siria May 8, 2011

    She sure can keep up with those male dancers. Didn’t know Kelly could move this good. She should dance more often in her videos

  74. Bey’knight May 8, 2011


    ur not helpin kelly get recognition by badmouthing beyonce. It makes u look morr like beyonce hater than kelly supporter. U can praise kelly w/o bringing bey up. Kelly is rarely mentioned in bey’s posts

  75. Tracy May 8, 2011

    She looks AMAZING and her voice, dancing, the song….. everything is bananas!!!GO KEL!!

  76. DC_Diva May 8, 2011

    I love love love it. The way Kelly is blossoming into a beautiful flower…she is more confident and it shows. #TeamKelly!!!!

  77. X,Y,”and Z” May 8, 2011

    (Hark! ..What new madness is this?…)

    Ah…it’s Beyonce’s 30-something-year-old X-back-up singer AKA “T-H-E Most Photoshopped/Over-Hyped Artist currently in the game!” (second only to rihanna)

    She can’t sing (she makes Rihanna sound like the second-coming of Leontyne Price).
    She can’t dance (Dancing..?! …More like “Air Brakes Left-Foot Stomping”).
    She has ZERO-stage presence (You’d stand to be more-entertained if you opened a bottle of Motor Oil, sat it on stage, and then watch it Oxidize).

    But what she CAN do is to “hold still”..!! “Holding Still” – just enough to have her image digitized and morphed into something she looks NOTHING LIKE..!!

    (So again I’ll ask…) What does 30-something Kelly Rowland bring to the game? What could she possibly “bring to the table” that you don’t already exponentially get in/with Ciara/Teyanna Taylor? They can BOTH out-dance her. Teyanna Taylor can certainly out-sing her. So, I’ll thrice ask: Why then “Beyonce’s 30-something X-back-up singer…??

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!!

  78. sade May 9, 2011

    Kelly’s body is AMAZING!!! Great video

  79. tld May 9, 2011

    Sam, DAMN that wasn’t RIRI please stop your obsession!!!! Why don’t you post about your girl B’s FLOP song !!!!

  80. Jammy May 9, 2011

    Kelly is ahead of beyonce on the TOP 100. #justsaying

  81. dakkylove May 9, 2011

    finally #Teamkelly is getting their game right… i loved this video. perfect after motivation. i can’t wait for her promo to start . its your time now Kelly, all you needed was the right people around you now see you soar. so proud.
