Our favorite foxes took the ‘DWTS’ stage on Nov. 26 to perform their viral hit song ‘The Fox.’ We couldn’t help but laugh at the ridiculous dancing duo’s outrageous moves and crazy fox outfits!
The Norwegian comedians known as Ylvis, whose hilarious video for “The Fox” took the Internet by storm in September, 2013, gave the performance of a lifetime on the season 17 finale of Dancing with the Stars! Read on for all the details.
Ylvis On ‘Dancing With The Stars’ — Comedy Duo Performs ‘What Does The Fox Say?’
We were fans of Lady Antebellum and Enrique Iglesias‘ performances on the finale, but Ylvis totally stole the spotlight! We knew these guys were funny but who knew they could put on such a show?
They performed their hit song while Amber & Derek, Peta & Brant, Karina & Corbin, and Jack & Cheryl performed their team dance from earlier in the season.
What a hilarious — or should we say “foxing awesome” — performance!
Up next for Ylvis: a book. The popularity of “The Fox” has inspired a beautifully illustrated children’s book “What Does the Fox Say?” to be published by Simon & Schuster on December 10. The brothers will return to the states for TV and book signing appearances around its release.
“The Fox” was uploaded to YouTube on September 3 and quickly became a viral hit, surpassing 20 million views in just one week. It hit 100 Million views on October 9 and under a month later, doubled that number. It’s now at a quarter of a billion views worldwide.
Season 17 Contestants Perform Ylvis’ ‘What Does The Fox Say?’
Ylvis’ viral hit song is no stranger to the DWTS stage, as this season’s contestants put on a coordinated performance of the song while dressed like foxes earlier in the season. The contestants got rave reviews from the judges the first time around!
“That was so clever, that was so inventive. Corbin, you killed it! Amber, you were a fury! I’m at a loss for words!” Bruno said. Carrie Ann said she felt like she was on an acid trip! The team got a perfect 30!
So HollywoodLifers, who do you think put on a better performance of “The Fox” — Ylvis or the DWTS contestants? Let us know!
