Harry Connick Jr. dazzles in guest spot on 'Dancing' results show

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Just when the "Dancing with the Stars" results show entered it's fourth hour (just kidding).... along comes Harry Connick Jr. with his gorgeous big-band spin on the title tune from the Broadway revival of "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever," in which he will star come November.

Adding to the dazzling number was the beautiful 1940s-inspired dance by Tony Dovolani and Kym Johnson. Tony is perhaps the most beautiful of the male pros when it comes to style and grace (Maks has the sexiness; Mark and Derek the daring and exciting freestyle).

I'll wager not too many folks in the ballroom had a clue what Connick was crooning, or that the show he was hawking is the remount of the Alan J. Lerner-Burton Lane musical that opened on Broadway in 1965 (Barbra Streisand later starred in the 1970 film adaptation). No matter. It was a lovely study in great music and great dance.
