Strictly Come Dancing 2012 star Kimberley Walsh has said she plans to pretend she's Beyonce in order to pull off her performance tonight.
The Girls Aloud star will be performing a saucy salsa with pro partner Pasha Kovalev, and claimed the only way she can complete the routine is to channel her idol.
“We’re dancing to her track Naughty Girl and this entrance is definitely something Beyonce’s alter ego Sasha Fierce would do," Kimberley revealed today. “She’d probably be doing forward rolls up there on the hoop. I’ve also got a couple of risqué lifts which, if they work, will look amazing.
“But my Sasha Fierce definitely needs to kick in because I can’t perform a song like this as me. It would be too inhibiting — I’d be so aware of myself.
“I’ll probably just try to pretend I am Beyonce. And she would definitely not be frightened of this routine so I’m just going to go for it."
Kimberley, who was joint second on the leaderboard with her highest score to date last week, said: “It’s not the kind of thing you can do half-heartedly. Salsa is a street dance so if it looks stiff it defeats the object. I’ve just got to let loose.”
