What You Missed At THON While You Were Asleep

Much like Penn State basketball, THON never stops (at least for one weekend every February). Here is everything that happened in the Bryce Jordan Center while you might’ve been sleeping.

The New Feel won THON’s Got Talent.
For the second straight year, The New Feel took home the THON’s Got Talent title after performing “When You Were Young” by The Killers.

Double Oh7 Rocked the BJC for nearly an hour.
The local cover band known for appearances at the Phyrst and Cafe played everything from The Beatles to Maroon 5 to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, invigorating a lulled crowd to get on its feet and “twist and shout.”

Dancers took a break from standing and rolled around in baby powder.
During the first Slides of Strength of the weekend, dancers gave their legs a rest and took part in one of the strangest traditions to a non-Penn Stater by diving headfirst into baby powder to get massaged.

Club Taekwondo kicked boards (and ass).
For the first time, Taekwondo was featured in THON and the students in the club seized the opportunity. It left the crowd in awe with a series of mutilating kicks and punches to wooden boards.

The line dance happened five times.
Dancer Relations captains took the stage five times since midnight and reinforced the last year’s events for both Penn State and the world.

Onward State didn’t sleep.
Check out some articles from the last few hours including a video of Joe Jonas’ surprise performance, canvass of students’ favorite parts to this year’s line dance, THON-themed game of Where’s Waldo, and features of noted THON orgs Eclipse, Ohana, Boulevard, and Springfield.
