‘DWTS’ Fans Want Gleb Savchenko’s Drag Persona Natasha to Appear on Tour
Dancing with the Stars fans are hopeful that Gleb Savchenko’s drag persona Natasha might make an appearance during the upcoming live tour. However, a new post seems to suggest that it won’t be happening.
DWTS Fans Want Gleb Savchenko’s Natasha on Tour
During the Season 31 finale earlier this year, Savchenko performed a Freestyle routine with his partner, drag queen Shangela. In honor of the fun dance, the pro dressed up in drag as a character named Natasha.
Recently, the official DWTS tour Instagram posted a video of Savchenko with the words, “DWTS fans begging us to bring Natasha on tour.” Savchenko lip synced to the audio, “It would be so awesome. It would be so cool.”
“Sadly Natasha had a scheduling conflict,” the caption of the post reads, along with a winky face emoji.
There may be a simple reason why Savchenko won’t be dressing as Natasha during the tour — Shangela isn’t appearing on any of the scheduled dates. The Season 31 celebrities who are appearing include Gabby Windey, Daniel Durant, Charli and Heidi D’Amelio, and Vinny Guadagnino.
The Dancer Suggested Natasha Might Be on Tour
Fans who wanted to see Natasha on tour had good reason to be hopeful, since Savchenko previously teased that she might make an appearance. During an interview with ET Canada, the dancer said, “Get your tickets now. You might see me, Natasha Wadley.”
“I’m so thrilled to have a daughter like this,” Shangela said of Natasha. “Not only is she talented, a professional-trained dancer who knows how to turn the party, but also so kind, so loving.”
Of course, there’s always the chance that Natasha will make a surprise appearance at some point during the tour, and the show is just playing coy. We won’t find out for sure until the tour officially kicks off in January. Check out the website for dates and tickets.
