Dancing with the Stars two-man dance NOT a first for Australian TV

We have seen this before! Dancing with the Stars promotes Shane Jenek and the foxtrot of Josh Keefe because the & # 39; first time & # 39; two men danced together on TV – but it was actually done 14 years ago

Dancing with the Stars jury Sharna Burgess described Shane Jenek and the foxtrot performance of Josh Keefe on Monday night as a & # 39; scoop for television & # 39 ;.

But when Shane left his dragging alter ego Courtney Act in the semi-final, it wasn't the first time two male dancers had appeared on Australian television.

As reported by TV Tonight, that honor goes to Strictly Dancing participants Adam Francis and Alexander Bryan in 2005.

The same-sex duo performed during the short-lived ABC show and was praised by the majority of fans, despite some negative feedback.

Adam and Alexander finished second in the competition thanks to the wave of public support.

Although their appearance has largely been forgotten, the two men danced together on national television 14 years before Shane and Josh entered the stage this week.

However, Shane (who had played as drag queen Courtney Act until Monday) and Josh goods the first men to dance together in the history of Dancing with the Stars.

Although it was a similar format, Strictly Dancing was not affiliated with DWTS and had no celebrities as participants.

Shane and Josh went on to the DWTS final with a fusion of foxtrot and tango dance styles, with the hit track Toxic by Britney Spears as the soundtrack.

& # 39; It was wonderful to see you doing there and this is a first for television here – to have two men dance together, & # 39; Sharna said after Monday's execution.

Jett Kenny and his partner Lily Cornish were eliminated on Monday evening after a sudden death-dance-off.

Samuel Johnson and his partner Jorja Freeman have been rescued and will continue in the final alongside Courtney / Shane and Josh.
