UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi has been lighting up the floor exercise for years, but she gained superstar status after notching a ideal 10 at the Collegiate Challenge with a Jackson 5-inspired routine that sent the Internet rocking with joy.
Ohashi's musical choice for the routine featured songs from Tina Turner and Earth Wind and Fire, as well as the Jackson 5 and Michael and Janet Jackson, of course.
Ohashi kicked off her routine with a body roll followed by a "massive tumbling pass that ended in a flawlessly stuck landing", The Denver Post reported, stunning the crowd, her coaches, teammates and, most notably, the judges - who awarded her a ideal 10.
