'Dancing with the Stars' Contestants Go Full Westeros with a Fantastic Ballroom Routine Set to 'Game of Thrones' Theme Song

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | October 22, 2013 | Comments ()


I have no idea who Corbin Bleu is (a Disney kid or something), but here he comes out as Khal Drogo to Karina Smirnoff’s Daenerys Targaryen on Dancing with the Stars, and they Waltz Dany to her rightful place at the end of the routine: The Iron Throne.

I don’t give a rat’s ass about dancing, or Dancing with the Stars, but this is great stuff and blows Elizabeth Berkley and her Saved by the Bell-inspired routine out of the Blackwater.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    This was well done and appropriately, every time I hear the opening sequence to GOT, I think to myself "I would waltz the shit out of this if I knew how... Preferably in the burly strong manly arms of one Jason Momoa."

    A girl can fantasize about a hot hunk like Momoa "waltzing" her around the hard floor, can't she?!

    Lord mercy that man is bothersome hot.

  • HJ

    Ohhhh... thank you.

  • Maguita NYC

    You're welcome, anytime. Seriously, any time!

  • Mrs. Julien

    Aren't you petite and you would therefore have to be suspended about a foot off the ground to allow for waltzing?

  • Maguita NYC

    You say that as if it would be a problem to be lifted off the floor in his strong beautiful arms??!

  • My in-laws were staying with us when the new TV season started and to say that they are OBSESSED with Dancing With The Stars would be a wild understatement. I gave up all rights to prime time TV when I married a woman who owns every season of Murder She Wrote on DVD (and when we got a DVR) so I just kind of sat there the first night it was on playing around online as they watched. And I'll be goddamned if that show didn't have my full attention by the end of the 9th hour or whatever. They were still around by the time week 2 rolled around and I found myself actively wanting to watch Bill Nye dance and worse, critiquing the other dances. They left soon thereafter and I haven't looked back at the show since (until now), and while I really don't give a shit about performance competition shows at all (minus Chopped), I have to say objectively that whoever produces that show knows what they are doing in the way of creating lowest common denominator compelling television.

  • I got angry at the "Red Wedding Tango" quip. How dare you, sir! Have some damned respect.

  • Mrs. Julien

    This seems a missed opportunity to post multiple photos and/or gifs of of Khal Drogo in counterpoint to tiny snapshots of the Disney kid. Starting with the "Come at me, bro" meme, moving on to a little "moon of my life" action with a brief sojourn at Dany eating the horse's heart for symbolic dominance over Dancing with the Stars, a little more "moon of my life" action, and then crescendo with the Khal throwing Mago's tongue on the ground.

    Pure laziness Dustin, if you ask me.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I see you, emmalita, angel of upvotes.

  • Adam

    I miss Khal Drogo, man had presence! I never read the books so I really thought that the first season would end with the Dothraki horde swarming the shores of the Seven kingdoms. That would have been epic.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    God, "Corbin Bleu" really? Ugh, shut up.

  • That was strangely very good. And then I listened to the judges panel and realized that everyone can die, and we might start with those three.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Yes, I alternated between laughing at the routine, and being impressed by it. But I stopped when the judges started speaking. Just looking at the time signature on the video is why I don't want these dancing shows - a four and a half minute clip is roughly half dancing, half talking. Bleah.
