Prior to Sting’s taking the stage to accept the award, Jose’ Feliciano and Jelena Krstic entertained attendees with a cover of the classic song. Watch.
You may be wondering what this has to do with ballroom dancing. I’ll tell you. The first thing that popped into my head when I watched Sting and his wife try to contain their painfully awkward reactions to this terrible rendition of a rock ‘n roll masterpiece was Oh. My.

And THAT is what sealed my decision to have the much needed hip replacement surgery I’ve been putting off for as long as I’ve been dancing.
Wish me luck.
