SONG AND DANCE: “My mom might have to get used to her big girl moving to London,” crooner Michelle Williams said Sunday at Julien Macdonald’s show. “If all goes well, I’ll be here until December – and maybe even longer.” Williams confirmed she’s in training to take part in the BBC’s "Strictly Come Dancing" program, and is ready to embark on her fourth solo music project.

 

Williams, who played the leading role of Roxie Hart in the West End production of Chicago last year, said she loves life in multi-cultural London. “I actually found a great American diner near Carnaby Street that serves pancakes, corn dogs and nachos – and I ordered the lumberjack breakfast,” she said with a gleam in her eye. However, she’s still seen no signs of the famous British stiff upper lip. “Last night I saw 'Les Miserables' at the Barbican and everyone was sniffling, and snuffling, and crying – and I thought ‘Hold on a second, you can’t do that yet, it’s just the first song!’”
