Nigel Lythgoe: ‘You Need Booze To Dance!’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Nothing gets you on the dance floor faster than a shot of booze.

So says former American Idol mastermind Nigel Lythgoe, who has a new global dance show premiering January 4 on NBC called Superstars Of Dance.

According to Lythgoe, dancing isn’t something that people just “do around the house,” but rather a hobby people take up when they’re in social situations and have downed a few drinks.

He laughs, “You’ve got to have alcohol to dance. When alcohol is introduced into a group, dancing ensues and it gets wild!”

Lythgoe believes the booze/dance correlation is a universal concept that all the contestants on Superstars of Dance can relate to.

The dancing groups are from all over the world, including Ireland, India, China, Russia, and the United States, though host Michael Flatley has a hunch which country will dominate on the dance floor after a stiff swig.

The Lord of the Dance jokes, “The Irish are the best!”
