PureDWTS Season 21, Week 6 – “Iconic Dance Week” Predictions

So I think we had some pretty good discussion, both here and on Twitter, about what dances from music videos, movies, and stage that we each think are “iconic” – so why not do a prediction post? šŸ™‚

I’ve included what we know so far (check out Heidi’s “Who’s Dancing What” for more details); songs that have gotten used in the past that might crop up again (because we all know they love reusing songs); songs that could crop up again, but probably won’t because they were used so recently; and songs that I, Court, would love to see used šŸ™‚

Songs we know so far:

Bindi: “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes, from Dirty Dancing – used twice as a pro dance, and also as Kelly’s all-stars freestyle in season 15

Carlos: “Pony” by Ginuwine, from Magic Mike

Alek: “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis, from Jailhouse Rock – Lil Kim’s jive in season 8, Tommy’sĀ  jive in season 19


Songs that could get reused:

“Old Time Rock ‘N’ Roll” by Bob Seger, from Risky Business – used as Jake’s cha-cha in season 10

“You Never Can Tell” by Chuck Berry, from Pulp Fiction – used as Apolo’s jive in season 4 and Erin’s jive in season 10

“Cell Block Tango” from Chicago – was Stacy’s tango in season 2, Bristol’s freestyle in season 11

“Thriller” by Michael Jackson – was Drew’s paso doble in season 2, also done by the pros as part of the Michael Jackson tribute

“Beat It” by Michael Jackson – Cristian’s tango in season 6

“You Should Be Dancing” by the Bee Gees, from Saturday Night Fever – Joey’s cha-cha in season 4, Sabrina’s disco in season 15

“You’re the One That I Want” from Grease – Brooke’s freestyle in season 7, James’ quickstep in season 18

“Greased Lightening” from Grease – Apolo’s jive trio in season 15

“We Go Together” from Grease – David’s quickstep in season 13

“Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” by Beyonce – Team Mambo in season 8

“Flashdance (What a Feeling)” by Irene Cara, from Flashdance – Gilles’ freestyle in season 8

“All That Jazz” from Chicago – Donny’s foxtrot in season 9

“Y.M.C.A” by The Village People – Sean’s cha-cha in season 16

“Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears – Kirstie’s samba in season 12


Songs that are probably too recent to get used again so soon:

“Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” by Doris Day, from Strictly Ballroom – George’s rumba in season 2, Rumer’s rumba in season 20

“Singin’ in the Rain” by Gene Kelly, from Singin’ in the Rain – Joey’s foxtrot in season 3, Bethany’s jazz in season 19

“Por Una Cabeza” by The Tango Project, from Scent of a Woman – Tommy’s Argentine tango in season 19

“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins, from Footloose – Kelly’s season 1 jive, Evan’s freestyle in season 10, Kellie’s jive in season 16, Chris’ jive in season 20


Court wishes:

“Chain of Fools” by Aretha Franklin, from Michael – ok, maybe a little bit more of an obscure dance scene, but I’d love to see Andy (or even Nick) dance around with a bunch of women following him.

“Canned Heat” by Jamiroquai, from Napoleon Dynamite – was Candace’s freestyle, but I’d love to see one of the guys with a sense of humor (maybe Hayes?) pay homage to this one!


So which ones do YOU hope to see? Let’s hear your ideas!
