Well we’re about to find out, because last year’s Strictly Come Dancing winner will be singing for the first time as he performs a song and dance routine inspired by Gene Kelly live on BBC1 for Children in Need.
Ore said: “I can’t wait to take the stage again, this time for BBC Children in Need! Strictly ignited a real passion for performing and I haven’t taken my dancing shoes off since. We want to put on a show and get the audience on their feet.”
“I thought it was a beautiful tribute to Gene,” she told RadioTimes.com. “He never wanted people to imitate his work. He wanted them to take what he did and create something new. Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton did this with grace and style.
“Gene always said that the point of his Singin’ in the Rain number was to bring joy. Oduba and Clifton achieved this in their own way. It made me smile to know that Gene is still very much present and ‘alive’ in the hearts and minds of very talented young people.”
