The popular 2DayFM radio host Andy Lee has surprised Hugh Jackman. He performed a stunning tap dance with the actor on the “Broad to Oz” show at Melbourne’s Rod Laver, when he was suddenly pulled up on stage by the “Wolverine” star.

Up till now, Jackman was mesmerising his audiences with his stark contrast performance of being a Hollywood superhero on screen and a musical maven on stage. He is portraying his life’s journey in the show, which opened on Tuesday. However, Lee’s performance was out-of-the-blue and had the audience in awe. Jackman has returned to the Australian stage after a nine-year gap. The show is a “dream come true” for Jackman.

According to, the actor acknowledged Lee’s tap dancing skills.

“Hamish managed to slip that your childhood dream was perhaps to sing and dance on the stage at some point in your life. And we’ve got a stage, we’ve got a band, what do you reckon?,” Jackman told Lee.

Lee was ready with his amazing reply that he tweeted later.

“It doesn’t matter what I think because if the Wolverine asks you to tap, you f**king tap,” Lee answered promptly. He was sitting in the audience with his girlfriend.

The moment was made to look impromptu but was not. Three months of rehearsal made it possible including a personal rehearsal with “Wolverine” early November. The deadly-duo performed in front of a packed arena of 10,000-strong audience.

In the other half of “Hamish & Andy” show, Hamish, also made an appearance and introduced himself as “internationally famous percussionist, Hamish Blake.”

“Broadway to Oz” features 150 singers, dancers and musicians. The show also celebrates Jackman’s success on Broadway in his “The Boy from Oz” show and his role as Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables” which has been nominated for an Oscar.

The video of the two dancing was tweeted from the official Twitter account of “Hamish & Andy” while Jackman too thanked everybody for the support with his tweet, reports The West Australian.
