Despite getting his start as superb dancer Link Larkin in Broadway’s Hairspray, Matthew Morrison must have a contractual obligation that forces him to give all of the dance scenes on Glee to the kids. We know this because he breaks into dance at every other chance he gets: On Oprah, on Jay Leno, and now at the NKOTBSB tour. He’s opening for the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys supergroup, but his moves just don’t seem to be up to snuff.
Morrison works some Michael Jackson crotch-grabbing into his routine and is definitely channeling Patrick Swayze from Dirty Dancing, but for the most part there’s a lot of fluttering and twirling. Sure, it was a showtune (“Don’t Stop Dancing”), but Morrison’s strengths are when he’s proving that white boys can breakdance — not practicing his triple lutz for the figure skating finals.
