Yes sir, I can boogie - Who needs a judge when you can win... a video captures Jerry O'Connell in action

That was some winning streak Jerry O'Connell was on last weekend. After cleaning up at the Golden Slipper on Saturday, the charming Hollywood star headed to Fox Studios to be a guest judge on Channel V's dance party show Room 208.

But the enthusiastic O'Connell was not content to sit on the sidelines. "I'm not here to judge, I'm here to compete," announced the star of Kangaroo Jack.

Still dressed in his racing attire, O'Connell stepped up on the podium, shook his booty and busted some moves.

Whoever was left to judge was clearly impressed, voting Jezza the winner. O'Connell picked up $1000 for his efforts which he donated to the Kids Help Line. He's made it very hard for other visiting celebs to top that performance.

From jenlynnj: In the spoiler shuffle, you said Max will be killed on Crossing Jordan? Nooo!
I would say it ain't so, but unfortunately it is. And Jerry O'Connell's character Woody is going to be fingered as the culprit, even though he's as innocent as they come. So, the question now is...whodunit? I dunno.
