When the HRP-4C a humanoid robot made her debut  in March 2009 it made news and grabbed headlines. Now the HRP-4C created at the Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, has had an upgrade – that allowed her to dance. (Video after the jump).

Sharing the stage with a group of girls, the 5-foot 2 inches humanoid shower her skills at Tokyo's Digital Content Expo last weekend. It has been told that HRP-4C can also sing from a preselected list of tunes and struts the catwalk in her spare time.

Reportedly designed to look like an average Japanese woman between the ages of 19 and 29, HRP-4C has 30 motors in her body that allow her to walk and move her arms and 8 facial motors for blinking, smiling, expressing emotions akin to anger and apparently, working it like a pop star.

For her weekend performance, HRP-4C joined four human dancers to move and sing to a lip-synced Vocaloid version of "Deatta Koro no Yo ni" ("Every Little Thing") by Kaori Mochida. SAM-san, a real-life dancer/choreographer, produced the routine.
