Taylor Swift had some sharp moves onstage at the American Music Awards when she opened the show with “Blank Space.” Of course, Swift’s movements are seldom relegated to the stage when she’s attending an awards show.
After catching a few glimpses of her dancing in the audience, we came up with a few suggestions for where she can learn some new steps.
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Now, here’s a sitcom Swift may remember from her childhood. Could Carlton have made a better choice than Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual”?
If “Shining Star” by Earth, Wind and Fire doesn’t get the crowd on the dance floor, there’s got to be a problem. And, yes, there was a problem when Elaine tried to get the party started.
Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
In certain situations, busting a move can turn the tide and prevent a rowdy bunch of bikers from busting your face. Pee Wee’s fancy toe-work to the Champs’ “Tequila” was enough to impress the crowd who never watched Dancing With the Stars.
The Nutty Professor
The French love Jerry Lewis. And why not? Given his initial reluctance to display his grace as a dancer, the swingin’ big band music finally gets the better of him in this clip.
Swift has spoken often of her love and admiration for felines, so maybe she doesn’t even need to fire up the computer for ideas.
Computer Generated Baby
Swift’s year of birth inspired the title of her latest album, 1989. As such, the “oogah-chucka, oogah-chucka” vocal riff of Blue Swede’s 1974 version of “Hooked on a Feeling” counts as an oldie in her book, but you can’t fight the rhythm.
