This may open a whole new career for Larry King: dipping instead of dishing. The suspendered CNN interviewer, 74, gets a lesson in how to dance from Janet Jackson, 41, on his show Thursday night. She shakes; he quakes. (For a glimpse of their fancy footwork, click here.)

“Okay Janet, show me a trick,” says King as he readies for his lesson.”I don’t know what I am doing,” he adds as Ms. Jackson giggles and patiently shows him a few moves while her new music video is screened behind them.

“What is this called?” he asks about one rigorous step. “The Dance of the Video,” she says. He also wonders if this is how Gene Kelly got started. You be the judge.
