1. The Silhouette Challenge Dance

This challenge had us all in love with the app because we got to admire every body type without even seeing them naked.

Every curve of the body was brought into the limelight and we really found ourselves mesmerized by the silhouettes of beautiful bodies.

Let us check out some of the best dances that this challenge brought us.

Bring the popcorn for this part because it is guaranteed that you will be watching some attempts on repeat. People have lost themselves down a rabbit hole of Buss It attempts and haven’t come back up for air for hours sometimes.

You might need a cold shower afterwards too (wink wink).
