Panic! At The Disco track “High Hopes” was used for an epic same-sex skate routine in the UK show Dancing On Ice.
Dancing On Ice is much like the USA’s Dancing With The Stars. Celebrities are matched with professionals of their respective art and learn how to do it. For DOI, instead of dancing on a normal dance floor, the contestants are ice skating.
During the premiere of the first episode of the program’s latest season, pro ice-skater Matt Evers and Welsh actor/singer Ian H. Watkins had their first routine together.
Dancing to Panic At The Disco’s “High Hopes,” the duo became the first same-sex couple on the show to take the ice.
P!ATD’s Highest Hopes Foundation took to Twitter to celebrate the skaters’ wonderful milestone.

Urie previously released a metal song on the platform when he went live in August. After a fan brought up the vocalist mentioning he wouldn’t be working for the rest of the year, Urie replied:
“Dude, that’s not work. That’s literally me, stoned and drunk in my room, sitting in this chair and just being like ‘oh, let’s just grab a guitar real quick.’”
