Johannes tore up the dance floor during a tribute to musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, as the professionals appeared in drag in the opening dance on yesterday’s episode.
The spectacular performance saw the likes of Johannes, Gorka Marquez and Giovanni Pernice dress in 70s inspired outfits, complete with rainbow-patterned fans and amazing make-up. The professional dancers filmed the routine while they were in a bubble before the latest series launched.
Johannes shared a joyful video from behind the scenes on the show, showing Moti grooving away backstage as she watched the performance.
‘I gather this was most people last night,’ he wrote. ‘As for the feedback,THANK YOU. I’m thrilled that many appreciate our Musicals tribute. [Bill Deamer] and Kylie a job well done creating such a joyous debut of Priscilla, it will go down in Strictly HERSTORY!’
The routine saw the dancers strut their stuff to Cece Peniston’s Finally, before the music transitioned to Peaches & Herb’s Shake Your Groove Thing.
It’s Johannes’ most memorable performance since his red carpet-inspired routine last year, which saw him conquer the dance floor in high heels.

It’s been an eventful week for Motsi, with the judge quitting Twitter before Sunday’s show.
