KISS returned on Tuesday night for Dancing With the Stars. The rockers hit the ballroom dance floor once again kicking off the show with an amazing performance of Lick it Up. Dressed in full costume, the fans were rocking out around the stage (and at home) and the guys showed how to make the show exciting.
The performance was accompanied by a dance routine as well. Mark Ballas, Chelsie Hightower, Henry Byalikov and Oksana Dmytrenko were dancing on the dance floor as the rockers were performing. The routine was with plenty of leather and gave the dancing fans a new way to look at the Dancing With the Stars ballroom.
The band KISS will be hitting the road over the summer as they perform at one of the biggest live concert shows planned for 2012. The global dates will give everyone a chance to see KISS in every part of the world.
Take a look at the video clip of KISS rock out Dancing With the Stars by performing Lick It Up. An odd choice for a dancing reality competition, but KISS perfectly fit into the rock themed week.
Guess what? You no longer have to head bang in secret. Why do you no longer have to hid your lust for life, The Stooges, and black leather? Because it’s Rock Week on Dancing with the Stars and now everybody’s doing it. To make the black celebration a party, the contestants and pros alike are dressed in their longest hair extensions and most metal looks, ripped from everything from the wardrobes of Mad Max the Insane Clown Posse and/or TheWarriors. The only thing wrong with this week is that Jack Wagner isn’t here to shake what his mother gave him, since the former soap star was sent home last week. Well, that and that it’s clear no one on the show listens to anything resembling rock.
Let’s see who bit the head off a bat this week:
Highest Score: When Gene Simmons founded KISS a thousand years ago, do you think he considered the possibility that when he was pushing retirement age, he’d be performing “I Want to Rock and Roll All Night” in full costume on primetime television for an over-30 demographic while clown-faced dancers pirouetted around him? Probably not, but kabuki makeup covers a lot of wrinkles and they band rocked it out. The judges give them 11s, of course.
Best Makeup: With KISS in the house, there was a lot of competition for over-the-topness. Host Brooke Burke Charvat is laughably pretending she’s a rocker at heart, but the only thing she is rocking is a weave. The real winner tonight was musical director Howard Wheeler, who took the prize by popping past the cameraman with a full KISS makeover.
