The 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee is trending for a variety of reasons today.

To start, everyone at the Spelling Bee was dabbing. Remember the popular move that was all the craze back in January thanks to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton? They brought it back! Because there’s no better way to celebrate the correct spelling of nagelfluh than with a little dancing.

The actual winner of the spelling bee celebrated a little bit differently. Nihar Janga, 11, of Austin, Texas correctly spelled gesellschaft, pronounced guh-zel-shahft, to become the co-champion. Janga channeled his inner Dex Bryant in celebration.

Cowboys’ wide receiver Dez Bryant thoroughly enjoyed Janga paying homage to his signature move, and he even tweeted about it, saying he wants Janga to come to a game.

Of course, there’s always someone that has something negative to say about everything. Unfortunately for this guy, the National Spelling Bee Twitter account shut him down with one four-letter word.
