Lindsey Stirling Performs Pajama Jive After Emotional Breakup

Lindsey Stirling Performs Pajama Jive After Emotional Breakup

Though Lindsey Stirling’s recent performance on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars is full of fun and energy, her pre-performance footage reveals a much deeper meaning.

Stirling admitted to recently ending her year-and-a-half-long relationship and feeling heartbroken.

“With all of this going on, I’m so thankful for this show. At a time when my heart is a little broken, I’m very grateful to have something I can really love,” Stirling said. “I want to have a family and I thought I was almost ready to go to that next phase. As much as this dance is about my guilty pleasure of being in my PJs, it’s also about what I want. I want to someday have a home with a family where we can dance around in our PJs together. To me, that’s what this dance is about.”

Stirling performed a jive with dance partner Mark Ballas to the hit song by Wam!, “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.” They received the highest score of the season so far, with a 27/30. Watch the entire performance below.
