You just kept going andyou're doing more and more. Tell me about this tutorialthat 40 million people have, what made you decide to add allthe whip nae nae and stuffit. gt;gt; Well, I'm a senior soI kind of thought long and hard. I was like, I want this year to be a bang,and hit hard. gt;gt; Mmhm.gt;gt; So over the summer I was thinking of somecool dance moves and some good music and my sisters an amazing dancer so shekinda helped me put some cool things in.
And like the dab and the nae nae andthe whip are really in, so I wanted people to follow along andhave fun with me. So I was like, let me throw that in,and hopefully the crowd enjoys it too. gt;gt; Of course, they do. gt;gt; LAUGHgt;gt; So what team, what was the score that your team hadé gt;gt; We had 197.025 andwe beat Utah which is our rival by 0.025. gt;gt; Congratulations.

When I was younger, I did a lot of thingsand I was on the national team2009, and I went to Japan foran international comition, and I won floor because that'smy favorite one to perform.
And then when I got back, I kept trainingreally hard and I fractured my back. So that eam was kindof over a little bit. And your peak time forthe Olympics is 16 to 18 years old, and I'm 21, soI'm kind of an old grandma for the sport. So I don't think that'sit right now. And now I'mcollege. So this one's really fun with the team andhyping it up and stuff. gt;gt; Yeah, well that's fantastic.
