This cover stands out from the rest, watch it now!
You might have seen many dance covers of Jenna Ortega's dance as the titular character in the Netflix show Wednesday. However, we can assure you that this cover right here stands out! Kamila Valieva's Wednesday dance was top-notch as she incorporated her figure skating routine into the dance.
As per Billboard, Valieva dressed as Jenna Ortega's Wednesday Addams during her figure skating routine and performed the original choreography to the OG song Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps before the netizens changed it to the sped-up version of Lady Gaga's Bloody Mary.
In an interview, Jenna revealed that she was the one who choreographed the dance with inspiration from archival footage. Jenna also told the world that she felt "insecure" about the whole dance sequence and thought it looked pretty obvious that she was not a dancer or a choreographer.
Jenna Ortega went on to give shout-outs to the artists that inspired her in a Tweet, saying, "Thanks to Siouxsie Sioux, Bob Fosse’s Rich Man’s Frug, Lisa Loring, Lene Lovich, Denis Lavant, and archival footage of goths dancing in clubs in the ’80s. Helped me out on this one."
Also, the actress filmed the scene when she had COVID and was awaiting her test results, "I’d gotten the song about a week before, and I just pulled from whatever I could…it’s crazy because it was my first day with COVID, so it was awful to film," she told NME. She added, "Yeah, I woke up and – it’s weird, I never get sick, and when I do, it’s not very bad – I had the body aches."
In the video by the Russian figure skater, she donned all black alongside pigtails, and she grooves to the song and exhibits amazing talent with Ortega's recognizable moves popping up from time to time. The TikTok version shows the Cramps version, but the Youtube version shows both the version, one to The Cramps and the other version to the sped-up version of Bloody Mary by Lady Gaga. I would highly recommend you watch the video below...
Jenna said in a late-night show that she was told by Netflix that this scene would become iconic and will go viral, but she never paid attention to any of it. Now she understands why they had said what they said. She also told NME in an interview that "I’ve been compared to Wednesday Addams my entire life and told the publication why she related to this character so much. We can't imagine anybody else playing this role anymore, can we?
