Christie dances in the Hamptons

(CNN) – He's back on the dance floor.

Two months after Gov. Chris Christie showed off his moves on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon, the New Jersey Republican was swinging his hips again this weekend, this time in the Hamptons with a roomful of celebrities.

The New York Post has video of Christie busting a move on stage with Jamie Foxx at a benefit for the Apollo Theater.

Also in the crowd: Barbra Streisand, James Brolin, Paul McCartney, Jack Nicholson, Anjelica Huston and Robert DeNiro, according to the Post.

Christie, a potential presidential contender, was a guest of rocker Jon Bon Jovi, who also recruited the governor to help him complete the Ice Bucket Challenge this weekend.

Christie wasn't the only Republican strutting his stuff Saturday. Sen. John McCain also hopped on stage with Foxx to perform the robot dance, the Post reported.

"I saw Chris Christie and he was jamming," Foxx said, according to the Wall Street Journal. "I looked down at McCain and he was like, 'I can do this.' It's the ones you don't expect. It's the Republicans. Republicans love to dance in the Hamptons."

In June, after his dance-off with Fallon, Christie predicted his moves would be in high demand.

"I got a feeling that these dances now will be frequently requested no matter where I am - the next wedding, the next bar mitzvah," Christie said on a radio program.

Christie said his son told him: "See Dad? See how many hits you can get if you're willing to humiliate yourself on national television for five minutes."

    Due to some his war injuries, that's probably the best up tempo dance move he can do. I say go for it. senator.

    I'm digging Christies' son's honesty.
    Beyond that, a good time was had by all and that's always cool.
    Cut up and let whatever hair you've got left loose!
    It does the body good.

    Is that what that is? Foxx looked more like he was "_____". Nope, no earthquake jokes.

    I can only imagine what people were saying under their breath . Again, just another couple clowns in the clown car brigade.

    Sixth attempt..

    Christy reminds me of my high school boyfriends best friend in this clip. Nice fun guy with no rhythm at all. And he loved to dance, most of the time with me. But I would have to turn away from him because if I didn't I'd be thrown completely off beat for the rest of the song. ☺️☺️☺️

    My Congressman, (Good Ol) Hank Johnson, is famous for a tongue-in-cheek comment regarding our military in Guam: "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize"

    I hope he doesn't see this article on the Hamptons and Christie.

    Jamie Fox should be ashamed especially having his picture taken with McShame.
