‘Dancing with the Stars 21’: Jennifer Grey helping Derek Hough, Bindi Irwin with ‘Dirty Dancing’ routine
While we have not posted a full article yet regarding the specific dance selections for Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars” episode just yet (that will be coming on Saturday), there is a little bit we can tell you right now in terms of the theme: It’s all about iconic dances. The show wants the Stars and the pro partners to recreate some of the most popular routines out there in entertainment history, and that is why Derek Hough and Bindi Irwin have been tasked with doing a routine popularized by “Dirty Dancing.”
Is it a coincidence that these two have this routine, given the fact that Derek partnered famously with the movie’s star Jennifer Grey in the past? It certainly does not feel like it, which is something that he even comments on in his TV Guide blog, while at the same time announcing that Grey is helping to lend him a hand with the routine:
“Jennifer Grey is giving us tips! She’s actually stopping by rehearsals today to check us out. We can’t disappoint her! I guess it was easy to give us Dirty Dancing because of my connection to Jennifer, but I think there are actually a lot of parallels between the movie and Bindi. Baby’s 17 in the movie and so is Bindi. Baby wants to change the world. That’s Bindi. Even Bindi’s laughs when she gets goofy are so Jennifer.”
We imagine that Bindi would love to be just as successful on the show as Jennifer was, given that she ended up winning her season. Therefore, there are multiple reasons to listen to some of her advice!
