Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva brought Jenna Ortega’s viral “Wednesday” dance to life on ice at the 2023 Russian Figure Skating Championships last week.

The figure skater’s tribute to the “Wednesday” dance scene comes after Ortega’s moves took off on TikTok, a craze that got the attention of Lady Gaga earlier this month.

Ortega, who choreographed the dance herself, has since revealed that she felt insecure about the scene and said she filmed the dance while she had COVID-19 symptoms.

The routine starts with a nod to Thing – the hand character in “The Addams Family” franchise. The figure skater appears after a hand snaps its fingers and brings her into view.

Valieva later gets onto the ice and performs to the show’s theme song, composed by Danny Elfman, before the music shifts to The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck” ― the song overheard during the “Wednesday” dance scene.

Valieva, who donned all black alongside pigtails during the routine, grooves to the song and exhibits moves similar to Ortega’s eccentric gestures.

She closed out her routine as the viral Lady Gaga song “Bloody Mary” played in the background, and wound up taking silver in the women’s senior championship division at the event.
