Update: We were right! Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff's Viennese Waltz is Game of Thrones-themed. He revealed the big news on Instagram, sharing a GoT photo that says "Team Corbin!" on it. His caption was certainly epic, too, writing: "Get ready! Tonight the #DWTS Glitter Ballroom shall become a battleground for the iron throne! A Game of Thrones themed Viennese Waltz! #TeamBleuSmirnoff #GameofThrones #epic."
Original story (October 17, 2013):
It's time to put our pop culture thinking caps on!
Dancing With the Stars Season 17, Week 6 doesn’t have a particular theme. As far as we can tell, the Monday, October 21 show will just be straight-up dancing. Corbin Bleu shared an Instagram video tease of his routine, asking fans, "Can you guess our next dance? We're speaking the language of the story it's inspired by! @karina_smirnoff."
The video shows shirtless Corbin in an intense dance with Karina Smirnoff, speaking… if that isn’t Klingon from Star Trek, maybe it’s Dothraki from HBO’s Game of Thrones? Are they dancing to the Game of Thrones theme? The Khaleesi and her Khal? Maybe. Their dance looks almost Paso Doble-ish in its intensity, but they already did that dance in Week 4.
This week, they already revealed to On the Red Carpet that they have the Viennese Waltz. Corbin told OTRC, "It's gonna be awesome. It's gonna be epic." Karina added, "But our song is — exactly, epic. That's the only way to describe it."
Epic definitely describe GoT, but who knows. Watch the video below and see if you can interpret the language. Are you guessing Game of Thrones, or is your mind taking you somewhere else? Tell us below, and read about the other couples’ dance styles here!
