OMG! As the ‘Mannequin Challenge’ takes the internet by storm, we just saw the BEST one yet! The cast and crew of ‘DWTS’ attempted the challenge Nov. 6, and they NAILED IT! All of the participants were frozen solid on the ballroom floor! Then, they broke out into an epic flash mob! Watch it here and prepare to be amazed!
A new episode of Dancing With The Stars is the only good thing about Mondays, unless The Bachelor/Bachelorette is in season, of course. And Nov. 7 was extra special because we got an EPIC video from the cast and crew, BEFORE their new episode! Talk about a double dose of DWTS action! One of our favorites, Val Chmerkovskiy, 30, took to Instagram to post the insane video of his fellow dancers and partners, taking on the “Mannequin Challenge,” the new viral craze that’s sweeping the internet. Don’t worry, he showed off his sexy moves in the video too!
In case you didn’t know, the challenge that’s taking over social media goers everywhere is pretty simple. All you have to do is get someone to film you completely frozen (like a mannequin) wherever you are! To make the best video, the idea is to get as many people as you can in one location to stop in their tracks, no matter what they’re doing. It’s actually hilarious. Some of the best videos occur depending on the location and what people are doing while frozen! Take Kelly Rowland, 35, for instance; — She posted an epic challenge Nov. 7! The singer reunited with her former Destiny’s Child members, Beyonce, 35, and Michelle Williams, 36, to take on the craze. SO cool!
There were a ton of familiar faces in amazing video including Laurie Hernandez, 16, Jana Kramer, 32, and her partner, Gleb Savchenko, 33, Maks Chmerkovskiy, 36, Terra Jole, 36, and many more! They were joined by camera men and crew members. It was seriously the most impressive challenge we’ve ever seen!
The video shows all of the participants on the ballroom floor as they were frozen solid, perfecting the beginning of the challenge. Some dancers were paused taking a selfie, while others were frozen in the middle of epic moves. Jana and her partner posed for an adorable photo together, while Maks looked like he was reading a paper while directing everyone. One of the most insane things we saw from the video was Laurie in a frozen handstand! WHAT?! It looked incredible and her gymnastic skills definitely paid off for that move!
After the camera panned across the dance floor, “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd, began to blast and everyone broke out in a flash mob. All of the challenge members showed off their best moves as they jumped around the dance floor and it was amazing! We’re wondering who can top this one!
