What is the Legendary challenge on TikTok

The Legendary challenge is based on the instantly famous ballroom dance show on HBO Max. The show follows the basic principle of a dance competition mixed with a ‘Step up’ like drama. While most shows concentrate on the choreography of it all, Legendary gives equal importance to the makeup, costumes, and personal lives of the contestants.

The Legendary challenge encourages TikTokers to glam up and dance like nobody is watching. There does seem to be a set choreography to the challenge which can be found by simply perusing through the hashtags.

The challenge claims that the goal is to be ‘Legendary and slay this choreo all the way down to the floor’.

Like most TikTok videos, the Legendary challenge has its unique sound clip that accompanies the choreography. The clip used is from the song Legendary by MikeQ & Ash B. The song is actually the theme song for the show itself and plays at the beginning of each episode. It seems fitting that this was the song chosen for the TikTok Legendary challenge.

The sound clip used has some slick beats that go well with the choreography set out for the challenge. The clip ends at the end of the chorus of the song. If you want to check out the song for yourself, click on the links below.
