Our gal Snooki has come a looooong way since her days perfecting The Blurry Koo-Kah at Karma. Nicole made her “Dancing with the Stars” debut last night, and while we knew she and her fellow pint-sized partner would light the stage on fire, we never imagined — ever — her hip-shakin’ skills would elicit a borderline NSFW compliment from British judge Len Goodman.
“You know, you’re like a little pocket rocket!” Len says of Snicole (thanks for the other new nickname, Tom Bergeron!) and Sasha’s performance in the show clip below, completely unaware of the practical uses for a Pocket Rocket. Blame it on the cultural divide?
After a little flirting (intentional, this time) and praise from Bruno Tonioli, the judges awarded Team Snasha a total of 23 points, one of the top 5 scores of the night, and though we don’t have any professional dance experience under our belts (do five years of tap and going to theater camp count?), our amateur opinion is that Bruno, of all people, should have given her a 10. Doesn’t he know she’s marrying into an Italian family?
