Will New York Giants’ Wide Receiver Victor Cruz Take His Salsa to ‘Dancing with the Stars’?
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is known for his celebratory end-zone salsa dances when he catches touchdown passes — and his trademark shimmying has landed him an invite to ‘Dancing with the Stars.’
“[The show's producers] actually called already,” he told ‘Access Hollywood’ during a backstage interview at the 2012 Grammy Awards on Sunday, where he and fellow Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham — who made that stunning game-changing Super Bowl catch — presented the award for Best Rock Performance.
“I had to decline, unfortunately,” he said of the invite. “I want to focus on football and focus on my craft a little bit.” But he left the door open, telling Robinson, “Maybe in the future.”
When asked which was tougher — catching passes or presenting at the Grammys — Cruz replied, “Definitely that Grammy stage, man … You don’t have a helmet on, you’re not running around, it’s just people starring at you wondering what you’re gonna do next. [But] it was definitely a great experience and I’d definitely do it again.”
