Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff tackled the Jive on Dancing With the Stars 2013’s Latin Night (Season 17, Week 2) tonight, Monday, September 23, to an unexpected song: One Direction’s “Kiss You”! Oh, and it was an homage to High School Musical.
In a HSM’s East High Wildcats team uniform, Corbin started on the judges’ table before using quick steps and hops to move with Karina across the ballroom floor. It was fun and showed off some crazy splits and slides and had everyone cheering (and their jaws on the floor) from start to finish.
“I love your athleticism, your musicality is spot-on. You turn every movement out perfectly, then there’s this raw edge to it that makes it really exciting!” Carrie Ann exclaimed. “You. Can. Dance,” Len added. “I loved your performance, your energy. It’s fabulous just to watch you come out.”
Bruno said, “Are you kidding me? Thi was a performance of dazzling brilliance. The way you keep the beat is almost HD 3D!” From there, Corbin couldn’t contain his feelings. “I was back in that character, man,” Corbin said before yelling HSM’s signature chant: “What team? Wildcats!"
In the end, they scored two 9s and an 8, giving them a total of 26 points.
