Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Shaquille O’Neal Dancing on the Tonight Show
Who: Shaquille O’Neal
Why we chose him: Who knew basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal had such sick moves?! Earlier this week, Shaq appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and went head-to-head with the late-night host during the iconic lip-sync battle.
While “bringing 1988 back,” Shaq broke into his rendition of Bobby Brown’s classic “My Prerogative” while moving his hips and shakin’ what his mama gave him. He was joined by an audience member he pulled on stage … that is until none other than our friend Pitbull came out!
But it didn’t end there. After Jimmy channeled his inner Beauty and the Beast (he dressed as both Ariana Grande and John Legend while lip-syncing Disney’s remake!), Shaq called for a duet with Jimmy; and let’s just say the dynamic duo bonded to Elton John and Kiki Dee’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”
The dancing. The lip-syncing. The cheek kisses. These two made our week!
Fun fact: The Tonight Show aired in Orlando, FL this week in honor of Jimmy’s new ride at Universal Studios, Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.
