Dancing with the Stars winner Laurie Hernandez teams up with her partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy in a number inspired by a scene from Sing. The animated music-filled comedy features a scene with Rosita (voiced by Reese Witherspoon) dancing her way through a supermarket while shopping for her 25 little piglets. Hernandez puts her own spin on the scene, and Chmerkovskiy briefly shows up as her partner.
Sing was directed by Garth Jennings and Christophe Lourdelet and features the voices of Matthew McConaughey, Tori Kelly, Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Nick Kroll, Beck Bennett, Nick Offerman, Jennifer Saunders, Leslie Jones, and Jay Pharoah. Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment are releasing Sing in theaters on December 21, 2016.
The Sing Plot: Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal-some might even say delusional-optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Egerton), a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
