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

The Democratic presidential nominee encouraged people to vote with the #MannequinChallenge that featured her husband Bill Clinton and Bon Jovi

The New York Giants

Some challenges are must-watches for the gratuitous amount of eye candy...

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

This high school essentially got every student to participate. That's school spirit.

Soundtrack: Dorrough, "Ice Cream Paint Job"

Kendrick Lamar graces the cover of Variety magazine, where he discusses his praised career, slew of hits, the country's political state and more. “America will survive once it recognizes the position it’s in, and the trials that it’s facing. Once people stop being nonchalant to it and recognize it, that’s when," he explains. "When it’s not something that’s just swept under the rug because we’re the quote-unquote ‘greatest country in the world.’”
