Anyone can literally dance to “Despacito” — even ice skaters. As the 2018 Winter Olympics are underway in Pyeongchang, Korea, the ice skating competition is getting fierce, especially when it comes to the music. South Korean ice skating team, Yura Min and Alexander Gamelin picked “Despacito” as their song of choice for their Olympic dance performance, and it was spectacular.

Yura even wore a red flamenco-type outfit, just like the dancing girl emoji! But her outfit almost caused a major catastrophe.

As the New York Times reports, “Seconds into their routine on Sunday, the back of Min’s outfit became unhooked.”

“I was like, ‘Oh no'” Yura told The Detroit Free Press. “If that comes undone, the whole thing could just pop off. I was terrified the entire program.”

The couple — who are American born — included a couple of other songs in their routine include Mariah Carey’s “My All” and Thalia’s “Mujer Latina.”
