We knew Channing Tatum could dance his butt off, but who knew he could Vogue…maybe even better than Madonna herself? The ‘Magic Mike XXL’ hottie put his moves to a test in a new video, and it’s everything!
In a video posted by Vanity Fair on July 1, Channing Tatum, 35, busted out seven perfect dance moves in only 30 seconds. That’s an impressive feat just by itself! But the clear winner of this solo dance-off was Channing’s version of Madonna’s infamous “Vogue” dance — and he absolutely killed it! Watch the video for yourself and you’ll see what we mean. Why is he so insanely charming?
Since his Step Up days, Channing has established himself as the premiere silver screen dancer of our time — a modern day Gene Kelly in a tank top and tear-away pants, if you will. We’ve seen him throw down as a street dancer, we’ve seen him sweetly move across the stage with onscreen love interest (and now offscreen wife) Jenna Dewan Tatum, and we’ve definitely seen him strip. But Channing’s now proved that he’s a renaissance man, strutting his stuff for Vanity Fair with a little Madonna sass — and serious skill. Seriously, what the what, Channing?
Channing’s an adorable goofball too, trying his hand at The Running Man, The Twist, The Funky Chicken, The Hula, The Pony and The Robot before finally getting to Voguing. We’ll just have to ignore the fact that he’s probably not going to be able to really do a film about hulaing or get invited to do The Funky Chicken again anytime soon. This is too good to miss!
Channing Tatum Not Ruling Out A Return To Stripping
So there’s a chance we could be seeing a lot more of Channing’s dancing in the future — just maybe not in the movies. The Magic Mike XXL star (and former real-life stripper) said, while speaking about a planned Magic Mike show in Las Vegas, that he would never rule out returning to stripping.
What?! Channing explained that, while he has his hesitations — being in such skimpy clothes in front of a large audience in sometimes uncomfortable — he could see himself getting onstage a couple more times. Let us know when that’s happening, Channing!
