Last week Wiwi suggested that Romanian pop star Elena Gheorghe cannot dance. To support that, he posted a video which shows Elena throwing her limbs around, bobbing up and down and occasionally adjusting her hair. That inspired more than 70 Romanians to e-mail Wiwi: some sent friendly messages, others sent hate mail, but all argued that Elena knows how to bust a move. After carefully reviewing the evidence, Wiwi is pleased to reveal that Elena is, like, the best dancer ever.
She’s so good that she recently placed third on Dansez Pentru Tine, the Romanian version of Dancing With the Stars. You can see highlights of her performances above (and a montage devoted to some beautiful Balkan girls). The hip-hop segment at the 0:55 mark is killer. To see the full clip from Romanian televisionâ€”Elena dances to Beep by the Pussycat Dollsâ€”you can click here. The classier among you may prefer the waltz below. Finally, Oana in Romania has sent these links where you can view Elena doing the paso doble, tango, and rock ‘n roll.
And for the record, Wiwi has always been a fan of Elena: she is the banner image on this web site (look up). Can we please call a truce, Romania?
