“I loved that. I absolutely loved that. People really loved it,” said Gio.

“And obviously the complaints, the people who complained about it are very stupid people because we’re in 2021 in the sense that we’re trying to bring new things to the show.

“When I do something like Priscilla, which is a huge movie and music theater show, I’m really very proud of what we’ve done.

“You see people like Johannes dancing like that and it’s just amazing. Me and Gorka, we tried. We didn’t look like Johannes, but we tried. “
