Leave it to Betty White to start Super Bowl 50 off with bang — or with a dab. Before the game even kicked off on Feb. 7, the legendary comedian showed that she was just as good as Cam Newton’s signature dance, dabbing just like the Carolina Panthers superstar. Click to watch.
Betty White is 94-years-old and she is probably better at dabbing than anybody. Really. The Golden Girls legend could even give Cam Newton, 26, a run for his money, and she showed up the Carolina Panthers quarterback right before he was about to play Super Bowl 50!
Maybe Carolina might consider drafting Betty next year? She certainly has all the right moves – when it comes to dancing, that is. Right before the Super Bowl, Betty demonstrated that she’s pretty good at Dabbing, possibly even better than the Panthers quarterback who made the dance popular among sports fans.
Betty was actually taking part of a segment during the Kickoff Show. She was asked by Oscar-award winning director Ron Howard, 61, what was her favorite Super Bowl moment, but she decided to make a memorable highlight of her own. A single player had yet to step on the field and Betty already won the game.
For those who don’t know, the Dab began in Atlanta, way before the 2015-16 football season began, according to CBS. Multiple rap groups made the dance go viral thanks to music videos and Cam, an Atlanta native himself, must have picked it up while hanging around his hometown. You can dab and dance to .

There was no dabbing going on during the national anthem. Everyone stood in respect when Lady Gaga, 29, took the stage to deliver a stunning performance of “The Star Spangled Banner.” She totally slayed, and made sure Super Bowl 50 started off on an epic note. Gaga said that singing at the Super Bowl was a dream come true, and she definitely proved why she deserved the honor! Perhaps Gaga and Betty can work together on a new project – or she can call Betty up if she needs a new backup dancer.
What did you think about Betty’s dabbing, HollywoodLifers? Who do you think does it better – her or Cam?
