Dancing With the Stars Season 16 continued to impress us last night with a round of incredible Week 2 performances, and though many of them were unique, one stood out from the crowd: Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess’s Alice in Wonderland-themed jazz number, set to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”
And though we could wax poetically about how incredible and entertaining they were, we’re going to take a moment and jump into crossover land. It’s no secret that Andy wasn’t the first celeb to don a Mad Hatter costume, and though there are plenty of incredible versions of the wacky rabbit, our personal favorite is Once Upon a Time’s Sebastian Stan.
On the hit ABC fairy tale drama, Sebastian plays a desperate version of The Mad Hatter who is stuck in Wonderland away from his daughter, trying to construct a new hat to get back. Of course, since the show is split between present-day reality (Storybrooke) and the pre-curse Fairytale Land (The Enchanted Forest), we only see him galavanting in costume once in awhile.
As for Andy? He wasn’t playing a character, per se, but he was definitely using crazy facial expressions like the Mad Hatter would, spinning around with his Queen of Hearts, Sharna. And though he shed his hat quickly after starting the performance, there’s no doubt that he rocked his wacky costume.
But who is your favorite Mad Hatter: Andy Dick or OUAT’s Sebastian Stan? Vote below!
