Britney Spears and Kate Hudson Take on Viral Mannequin Challenge


One, two, three — freeze! Britney Spears and Kate Hudson are among the latest stars to take on the viral mannequin-challenge video craze — and they both totally nailed it.

Spears, 34, and her backup dancers took a break from rehearsing for her hit Las Vegas residency show, Britney: Piece of Me, on Saturday, November 12, to try their hand at the challenge. “We use our bodies to make our own #MannequinChallenge,” Spears captioned the video on Instagram, referencing lyrics from her new single “Slumber Party,” which was also playing in the background of the clip.
