2021 had no shortage of viral moments, from Dionne Warwick‘s hilarious tweets, to everyone doing the Omarion dance challenge.

Here are some of the most notable moments of the year. 

–The TikTok #OmarionChallenge saw millions reenacting Omarion‘s dance moves. 

–Dionne Warwick kept us laughing with her tweets questioning the stage names of Chance The Rapper, The Weeknd, and more.

–Omarion makes the list again, thanks to his name closely resembling the latest COVID-19 variant, Omicron, thus leading many to call it the Omarion variant. 

–The Weeknd‘s Super Bowl performance — during which he stumbled through a reflective maze — gifted Twitter a meme to use whenever they are having a hard time finding something. 

–And while not music-related, we can’t forget Tessica Brown, a.k.a. “Gorilla Glue Girl,” who used Gorilla Glue as hairspray, which ended up needing to be removed by a cosmetic surgeon.
