Nelly was on Dancing With The Stars this week and, while his Cha Cha to Earth Wind & Fire was certainly noteworthy, it was his choice in footwear that stole the show. The St. Louis native was wearing a pair of dancing heels that looked to be a Nike Air Jordan 3 upper stuck to the tooling of dancing shoes.
Of course, his whacky choice in footwear sent raptures through Twitter, where he was mostly clowned for his kicks. Nelly, who was dancing with Daniella Karagach, scored a 15 and an 18 out of 30 for his first two dances.
“They’re whack, whack, whack. They’re hating,” Nelly told US Weekly on Tuesday following the scoring which he and Karagach saw as
harsh. But maybe they just weren’t feeling the Js? Check out the best reactions below.
