Watch Nelly’s Tupac Tribute On Dancing With The Stars

Monday night we watched Hip Hop artist Nelly pay tribute to Tupac Shakur on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars part of icon night.

Along with his pro partner Daniella Karagach, Nelly not only danced to the hit ‘California Love’ but also did his own rendition as he rapped Tupac’s lyrics.

“In no way shape or form am I trying to emulate or out due this great man, but it is a great pleasure to be re-doing California Love and dancing to it in the honor of Pac,” Nelly said.

Dressing the part for the performance Nelly wore Tupac’s signature bandana and the outfit Shakur wore for the The New York Times Magazine cover which also featured Suge Knight and Snoop Dogg.

“He was multi-talented,” Nelly said before he hit the live stage. “We all come with luggage, the good and the bad, but the passion behind his songwriting and ability to touch other people has inspired me.”

After the performance the judges gave Nelly a total score of 24 out of 30. “There was so much going on,” said Judge Derek Hough. “It was celebratory and a joy to watch.” Watch the Nelly Tupac tribute performance below!
