Katie Holmes donned a pair of dark stockings and a black costume as she sang and danced a sort of homage to Judy Garland as part of So You Think You Can Dances 100th episode celebration on Thursday night.
The actress lent her vocal pipes to Get Happy as she danced in short-shorts, a black satin jacket and a fedora in a pre-taped performance for the FOX reality show.
Katies performance was also in support of the recently started Dizzy Feet Foundation, which she co-founded alongside SYTYCD judge Nigel Lythgoe, director Adam Shankman and Carrie Ann Inaba from Dancing With the Stars.
Im here today because I was approached to be a part of the Dizzy Feet Foundation, Katie told SYTYCD host Cat Deeley before her performance. Im also very good friends with Tice Diorio who is an incredible choreographer He came up with what I think is a great idea [for the performance] and weve had a great [time] doing it.
Katie described her performance as sort of a homage to Judy Garland, before taking the stage to rapturous applause.
During the number, the actress showed off her fancy footwork with leg kicks and smooth poses before being lifted up by her black-tie back up dancers.
I want to thank Katie Holmes for working so hard on that routine, Nigel said following Katies dance. He added a special thanks to the star for donating her performance fee to their foundation, which provides scholarships to dancers, choreographers and dance teachers.
