Jimmy Ma Skates To ‘Turn Down For What’ At The 2018 US Nationals
More like triple axel for what!
Jimmy Ma's performance to "Turn Down For What" at the 2018 US Nationals has taken figure skating to the next level. I mean, it is 2018 so this should be what figure skating looks and sounds like! I am all about it.
At the beginning of Jimmy's performance the judges had no clue what to make of his music choice, but as his routine progressed it's definitely clear that he made the right one.
In an interview with USA Today Jimmy told reporters “Figure skating is an extreme sport, I want the most amount of people to see that it is both an awesome art form and also an awesome sport. The whole point was to get people hyped. Get older people hyped and for younger people to think it is cool.”
I think he definitely got people hyped. I, for one, cannot wait for the 2018 Olympics now. If figure skating is more like this I will 100% be tuned in.
