Vanilla Ice - Vanilla Ice's Nerves Over Skating To His Song

Rapper VANILLA ICE was wracked with nerves before skating on the U.K.'s DANCING ON ICE on Sunday (20Feb11) - because he didn't want to "humiliate" himself by messing up a performance to his own smash hit.
The hip-hop star donned his figure skates to dance a choreographed routine set to his multi-million selling single Ice Ice Baby on the latest episode of the TV competition.
The hitmaker, real name Robert Van Winkle, admits he feared he would be mocked relentlessly if he fell flat on his face on the show.
After winning a high score from the show's judges, he told host Philip Schofield, "I never thought I would be skating to Ice Ice Baby. You know, it's my song so it's been more pressure than I've ever had in this competition to date... You know, it's my own song. If I humiliate myself on my own song I've got to go bury my head like an ostrich somewhere. It's like, 'Oh my God, this is the one I'm going to be YouTubed in and (the fans will be) tweeting about.'"
But Van Winkle didn't have to worry - former Spice Girl Emma Bunton, who is on the judging panel, told him, "I know this is about skating ability, but for me your performance - you can tell that you've performed to thousands of people all over the world. It got me excited. I want to buy a ticket. I'm a huge fan all over again."
