The Parade Of Nations Dancers At The Olympic Closing Ceremony Completely Stole Twitter's Heart — Again
The 2018 Winter Olympics are ending, which is a serious bummer — it'll be four years before we get to watch the world's best winter sport athletes compete for gold. Thankfully, the closing ceremony makes it much easier to say goodbye to the most exciting event of the year. The PyeongChang Winter Olympics closing ceremony gifted us with a lot of memorable moments, but there was one highlight that the internet loved: The tireless dancers from the opening ceremony returned for the closing ceremony, reminding us that they're the true MVPs of this whole thing. In case you missed the opening ceremony on Feb. 9, a squad of Korean dancers performed for over an hour during the Parade of Nations as athletes walked in, which left the entire world pretty impressed with their dedication.
During the closing ceremony, the dancers didn't have to dance for as long as they previously did, which is slightly disappointing — I'd be down to watch an entire Olympic event dedicated to their moves. Still, the internet loved the dance squad just as much as before, especially because athletes from some countries decided to join the fun and dance with them as they entered. The pressure is gone once athletes reach the closing ceremony, so why not have a little fun? These are some of the best reactions to the Parade of Nations dancers.
