It’s been a big week for Patti LaBelle—the 70-year-old singer guest-starred on Empire last week, and last night she had a big moment on Dancing with the Stars.
LaBelle flaunted her stuff and showed off her salsa moves to none other than 50 Cent’s “In Da Club.” LaBelle was shaking what her mother gave her with such intensity that host Tom Bergeron remarked, “Patti LaBelle holding it together, literally in places.”
LaBelle earned a 28 out of 40 score from the judges.
Judge Bruno Tonioli compared the “Be Yourself” singer to a character from Empire: the high-powered record exec Cookie Lyon played by Taraji P. Henson. “So Cookie! So Empire!” Tonioli exclaimed.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Ykd_YeuukZs&w=620]
