Katelyn Ohashi is at it again! The 21-year-old UCLA gymnast continues to impress fans with her unbelievable skills and “perfect ten” moves, and now she’s ready to show off a new routine. Katelyn plans to show off her updated floor exercises at the PAC-12 Championships on March 23, and she’ll be using a soundtrack of all-female artists.
Katelyn told ESPN she really wanted to perform a “women’s empowerment” routine, and finally had the opportunity to change things up after finals. She rose to fame with her Michael Jackson dance moves, but Katelyn admitted that the outcry following HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary affected her decision to cut his influence from her choreography.
“The goal of my routine is pure joy, and after the documentary, not everyone was feeling that way, and you can never discredit someone’s feelings,” Katelyn said, according to ESPN.
She decided to keep the music from Tina Turner and Janet Jackson in her routine, and added in some Beyoncé as well. These kind of updates to a routine may seem like a lot of painstaking effort, but Katelyn said it took an hour-and-a-half to create the choreography. Yeah, she really is that badass! Get a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of her moves in the video above.
