Luge - Winter Olympics Day 3

Dancin’ Kate Hansen explains her Beyonce warm-up routine

1 Comment

U.S. luger Kate Hansen captivated onlookers on Monday, but the most captivating performance might have come before her two luge runs. Her spirited dance routine just needs to be seen to be believed, but luckily, she provided NBC with an in-depth explanation of what inspires those moves.

As it happens, it’s “strictly Beyonce.”

The 21-year-old explained that listening to her “girl B” sends her off “into her own world” in which she is clearly uninhibited when it comes to elaborate public dancing.

Her analysis is priceless, and Hansen even gives NBC a bonus dance after asking reporter Lewis Johnson to “drop a beat.”

Seriously, though, you won’t regret watching it.

As expected the U.S. took gold in both men’s and women’s basketball, with the men winning their third consecutive Olympic gold medal and the women running their streak to six straight. But there was a lot more to take in at the basketball venues, including Serbia’s men’s team winning their first Olympic basketball medal (as an independent nation), and Spain doing the same in the women’s bracket.
