It was 2009. Barack Obama had been sworn into office, Heath Ledger posthumously won an Academy Award for playing the Joker in The Dark Knight, and Lil’ Kim was on Dancing with the Stars. Kim was dancing her feet right off her body all season long, but in one episode in particular, she wasn’t doing just any old dance. Lil’ Kim was doing the jive.
Kim and her partner were very Olivia Newton John and John Travolta circa Grease, and Queen Latifah was loving it.
Lil’ Kim has since returned to Dancing with the Stars to perform “Lady Marmalade” with Patti LaBelle and Amber Riley, who won the 17th season of the show. The special episode, which airs tomorrow night, will honor Dancing with the Stars’ 10-year anniversary and celebrate its 20-season run.
