You’ve got to love the shameless nepotism in Hollywood…if daddy’s famous, why can’t the kids be? And so David Hasselhoff’s daughters have launched a singing career under the guise of Bella Vida, but whether they have the talent to match is questionable.
Taylor Ann, 21, and Hayley, 18, showcased their new song Kiss Kiss Me Bang Bang on Lorraine today, parading around clutching their microphones…but not actually singing live. It seems they’re a chip off the old block, with about same amount of talent, too.
Dressed in figure-hugging basques and long hair cascading over their shoulders, proud father David watched from the sidelines gazing in adoration as he clapped and attempted to sing the lyrics.
Older sibling Taylor Ann wore a white Gaga-esque bodice with metal studs and long black gloves, while little sister Hayley was in a similar costume but in black, teaming it with a white netted bustle.
It was quite clear the duo were not belting out the lyrics there and then as every time they moved the microphone away from their mouth the song still sounded perfectly loud and in tune.
Their track has a distinct Eurovision vibe to it, which might hint towards a target market of German and Austrian audiences as the former Baywatch actor is a huge star there.
Last night, Taylor Ann couldn’t hide her excitement at performing on British television, tweeting, ‘Sleepy time:) up In 4 hours to take over Lorraine at 9 am to perform kiss kiss. yay so pumped!’
Thankfully the adrenaline allowed the girls to soldier on, rather than be a slave to their jetlag after landing at Heathrow yesterday while looking a little less jovial as they hid behind sunglasses.
After their performance, they posed outside the television studio with David, 59, beaming with pride and wearing a T-shirt promoting the band.
The song title was emblazoned on a pair of big pink lips, with ‘Available on iTunes now’ written just underneath in silver writing and three exclamation marks for effect.
David Hasselhoff said on his website that he would give his girls a helping hand, declaring, ‘It’s the dream of every parent to be able to help their children succeed.
‘I told the girls that I would help them open the door when they’re ready, but they would have to walk through it on their own. This is their time and I am excited to be a part of it.’
