No wonder it's such a massive hit
I've never seen Riverdance. I was in the UK when it took off in Ireland and then by the time I came back to Ireland it was making its way around the world.
So when I saw that Lord of the Dance was on telly last Sunday, I just had a little look. to catch up on things. All was going fine and dandy for the first 30 minutes, the full-on Irish dancing-inspired stuff you'd expect. Then it went all Bucks Fizz. The women dancers took off their dresses and danced in their knickers and bras! It was weird.
I don't know how the audience took it but I was looking at this thinking 'has Michael Flatley lost his marbles?' Anyhow, it all ended up fine. The women put their clothes back on and they all danced through the finale. Weird and strange - maybe that's how Michael (inset) likes it!
