Bo Williams and Emily Loyless gave a preview of their dance routine at Side Splitters last night. Bo is one of the celebrities competing in Star 102.1’s Dancing with the Knoxville Stars this year. He is feeling the pressure to bring home either the dancing trophy or the fundraising trophy. His WATE co-workers have won one of the two awards in each of the three previous events. Lori Tucker was the top fundraiser in year one. Tearsa Smith and Jamie Lynn Drohan won the dance contest in years two and three.
The snippet of the routine started with “Moves Like Jagger” and then switched to a comedic solo dance that could be described as “white and nerdy.” Bo and Emily added a few hundred bucks to their fundraising total. The members of Einstein Simplified donated our take from admissions and tips to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital on their behalf. At one point during the show, Bo was an audience volunteer for a game of Animatronics. He controlled my movements and I had to justify the various odd positions in which I found myself.
The evening started off with a funny video starring Bo, Tearsa and Emily.
