Britney Spears' Mannequin Challenge Twist Is Great
Britney Spears always seems to know just what to do to get her fans pumped. Currently, the pop superstar is wowing audiences in her hit Las Vegas residency Britney: Piece of Me at the AXIS Auditorium at Planet Hollywood. With a Las Vegas twist, Britney Spears' attempt at the Mannequin challenge should be on a top ten list somewhere. The artist shared her version of the popular internet craze on her Instagram account and it was, as expected, a glorious display of the performance prowess of the pop singer and her equally talented crew. Spears' bouncy hit "Slumber Party" plays in the background as she and her Las Vegas team stand frozen on the stage with Spears in a lunge center-stage.
But the kicker? The camera moved almost like a dancer itself. The video moves around the stage capturing the grace and balance of the frozen dancers, and it was breathtaking — but that wasn't even the end of it. In the final shot, viewers got the big reveal, the reason why all these performers are standing around a frozen Spears mid-lunge: a sign that announced Spears as the winner of Best Resident Performer from as Vegas Review-Journal. The thought and creativity put into this Mannequin Challenge pretty much exemplifies why Spears, who's been performing her Vegas residency show since 2013 is totally deserving of this honor.
But Britney isn't the only celebrity freezing her way into the Mannequin Challenge — many celebs have hopped on the train, and who can blame them? It's a really fun way to get creative with song choice, theme, and unique positions.
Here are some other awesome Mannequin Challenge videos from celebrities.
1. Blac Chyna
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian embraced the birth of their child Dream with this epic pregnancy room Mannequin Challenge. Friends, hospital staff, and family stand at watchful attention while Blac Chyna holds the position of giving birth and Rob sits at her feet preparing to catch the baby. The usual Mannequin Challenge song, "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd plays as Kris Jenner holds Blac Chyna's hand. Everyone's facial expressions are priceless. How long did they have to hold those expressions? That's dedication.
Adele and her fellow bandmates must be watching Westworld on tour, because they went for the classic old-timey Western theme complete with bar fight. As Johnny Cash's "Man In Black" plays, the team rocks cowboy hats. Oh, Adele. I've never wanted an artist to make a cameo in an HBO series more.
3. The New York Giants
The entire locker room took on frozen poses. Now, that is some great teamwork — and the lack of shirts was also much appreciated.
The Mannequin Challenge is some good, wholesome fun, and I can't wait to see what other celebrities bring into the mix.
