Jenna Dewan Was Kelly’s Backup Dancer During A Walmart Parking Lot Performance In The 2000s

(crowd applause) – One of my first things
ever to do after Idol and I don’t know if it’s
one of your first things you’ve probably been dancing
since you were a kid. But… we met and you were back up dancing and I was doing Miss Independent. – Yes, you had just won American Idol. – We were in a Walmart parking lot. This is not a joke. I sang till like 2 am and
like we were just out there and she was dancing and I was like “God you’re beautiful, can I
dance like that maybe one day?” No, um and then turns out I
just sing well. Sometimes. And anyway but it was the
most random thing because I was so excited because I had no friends. You don’t even know this
part I’m about to tell you. But I had no friends because at home I did but I was working in LA
I didn’t know anyone, and so it was just nice
to like see a Texas girl and just so nice and you were kind. – Oh that’s so sweet. – And I really needed somebody
to be kind in that moment and you were and so thank you so much. – Ohhhhh, Kelly, that’s so sweet! – No it was really nice I was so sad cause I didn’t have any friends like out in LA all my friends were in
Texas and so I was like I miss Texas people. – I so remember this
and for like the entire time this was a longer than we… It was a long time ago. – It was like five years ago. – You know, we were like
20, which is 2 years ago. – Yeah. – Um I told everyone that
would listen to me I was like “Kelly is the nicest, most amazing person, she’s gonna be huge!” And you know listen, I’m
psychic ya know, look at this. – Yeah what else do you project? – Yeah right so but- That was funny. Do you remember we were dancing
on a stage that they built in the parking lot? – Literally in the parking lot! Uh huh. – And we ran back to the break room. – Oh break room! – Yes! – Yes! – People were having their
smoke breaks and I was like stripping clothes. – And you’re trying to
keep it cool and be like so professional, yeah. – Yes. And we’re like “hey!” And then we’re running
through the aisles to get back on the stage. – Yes! – There was so many times- – It was ghetto it was awesome I liked it! (crowd laughs) – I was back in Texas, we were- I was so happy to have gotten the job. It was just like, it was a fun experience. But that picture I
found I couldn’t believe I found this picture. – I saw! I know I saw! – Our style, everything. It was everything It was so great. – Well I was in jeans I was
quite very comfortable actually. – Yeah. – Ah, I’m just remembering that.

    I know I'm gonna get some complaints for saying this but I don't care. Kelly, I love you but can we stop saying "that's so ghetto" surely you know the origin of that saying is fraught with racist undertones.

    Is Jenna doing things to her lips and cheeks…starting to see some signs…hmmmm but why she is already so naturally beautiful

  10. pinokiboi says:

    Kelly is so self deprecating it’s funny sometimes, but I also wish she would just acknowledge the fact that she’s FUCKING AWESOME!

  11. Moshe Telles says:

    I felt the same way when I was living in LA. Just seeing a Texan does wonders. Especially the 281 or 713 area code.
