Rae Sremmurd

The brother duo are mostly credited with helping the #MannequinChallenge break out big time thanks to this on-point, live performance clip soundtracked to their "Black Beatles" song—which shot up to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Songs chart after this clip took off on social media.

R. Kelly Fans

These dedicated people re-created the story of R. Kelly's never-not-ridiculous "Trapped in the Closet" saga in a challenge that sees its mannequins moving to new positions every couple seconds. We're extremely impressed by this storytelling. 

Soundtrack: R. Kelly, "Trapped in the Closet Chapter 1"

Michelle Obama, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers

It's going to be tough to capture a more historic #MannequinChallenge than the First Lady alongside one of the greatest NBA teams right now.

James Corden & 'The Late Late Show'

Destiny's Child

BeyoncéKelly Rowland and Michelle Williams attempted the challenge, which showed off their everlasting friendship and gave hope that maybe one day we'll see a Destiny's Child reunion.

Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Bon Jovi & Team

Simone Shepherd

Not every challenge needs to be funny. YouTube personality and comedian Simone Shepherd directed a powerful, one-minute video that tackles police brutality. Instead of images soundtracked to a hit song, we hear and see the stories of Sandra Bland, Alton Sterling and Trayvon Martin, along with a focus on Black Lives Matter protesters alongside Malcolm X’s famous 1964 Organization of Afro-American Unity Founding Rally speech.

This high school

Soundtrack: Dorrough, "Ice Cream Paint Job"
