From dropped jaws to applause, former Pussycat Dolls star Melody Thornton heard it all after she took to the latest episode of the U.K.’s ‘Dancing on Ice’ to deliver the dangerous “headbanger move.”
Becoming the first celeb this season to give the risky maneuver a try, the 34-year-old had to put full trust in dance partner, Alexander Demetriou, as he swung her around by the ankles with her head just centimeters away from the ice.
Ahead of the performance, Thornton reportedly told the press:
“I’m just trying not to die… I could crack my head.”
Luckily, she killed the performance instead. Look inside to see the move that not only won her the highest points of the night but STILL has people talking:

Thornton joins a small, yet elite club of the show’s contestants who have successfully completed the move. Congrats!
