Watch These Adorable Dancing Robots Break a Guinness World Record

As the resident robot fan around here, I guess it's no surprise that I absolutely love this charming video of 1,007 robots dancing and collectively breaking the Guinness World Record for most robots dancing at the same time.

Jon Bernthal Joins Cuba Gooding Jr, Don Cheadle, and James Corden in a Late Late Show Dance Party

I'd like to think that the Jon Bernthal we see in this appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden is what Frank Castle was like before his life was torn apart by tragedy. Putting on dance shows as a kid set to the music of Prince for all the moms and first grade girls along with his best friend, Dougie Thornel.

They're cuter than BB-8. There. I said it. It's out there now.

Speaking of Dancing Groot, Guess Who Provided the Moves?

What, isn't every conversation about dancing Groot right now?

Just a few hours ago we posted the official video of Groot from the end of Guardians of the Galaxy dancing his tiny twiggy heart out. But as much as we want to pretend that giant talking trees are real and hanging out in actual space, Groot does not actually exist. So whose dance moves were those?

A Bunch of Babies Listened to the Backstreet Boys for Scientific Research

Think carefully, baby: Howie or A.J.?

At what point does an infant's response to music transition from unrelated flailing to busting a baby move? A group of scientists undeterred by extreme cuteness observed a bunch of babies "dancing" to The Backstreet Boys to examine when humans develop a sense of rhythm (and if, right? I can't be the only one).

Stow Your Second-Hand Embarrassment and Watch Billy Dee Williams Do a Star Wars Cha Cha On Dancing With the Stars

To be fair to Billy Dee, it's less him in particular I find embarrassing and more this entire show. It just makes me cringe. Even that snazzy Lando-esque cape with the spangly gold lining cannot rescue this video for me. I demand a memory wipe for the last five minutes of my life. Bail Organa, hook me up?

Tom Hiddleston vs. Benedict Cumberbatch: The Dance-Off [VIDEO]

The real winner is anyone who watches this.

The internet loves Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. Their incredible performances (as Loki and Sherlock, in particular) kind of don't even hold a candle to their real-life charm. But an important question remains: whose moves are smoother, Hiddles' or Cummerbund's? You'll have to decide for yourself.

This Attack On Titan Dance Routine Is… Is… Just Watch It [VIDEO]

Apologies if you've already seen this guys' weirdimpressive Attack on Titan-themed dance moves, as this video was uploaded back in May.

Superheroes Can Dance If They Want To, They Can Leave Their Sidekicks Behind

Faster than a speeding bullet!

Being a superhero is a stressful job. Sometimes when you're defending Gotham/Metropolis/New York/CIRCLE CITY NAME HERE you just need to take a few minutes to unwind. (Looking at you, Bats.) By, say, cutting a rug. Artist Jesse Lonergan has illustrated what that might look like with his wonderful series of dancing superheroes. We've put some of our favorites behind the cut, including some boogying heroes of the genderswapped variety, but if you go to Lonergan's Tumblr you'll find a lot more characters getting their groove on—including examples from Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Adventure Time, Doctor Who, and more. Oh, and I've also included a non-dancing drawing of the Hulk playing a flute. Because reasons. (via: /Film)

Andrew Garfield’s Dance Skills & Pop-Culture Knowledge Are Tested On Ellen [VIDEO]

The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

If you're booked on Ellen it's a known fact you will probably be asked to dance at some point during the show. The context may not always be the same but it's always something to watch. In this particular instance Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield was asked to perform several different types of dances on the spot. For each one he got correct, $1000 would go to charity. The thing is, most of the dances required some significant pop-culture awareness, something I'm sure not a lot of actors actually have considering they're too busy being a part of that very culture. Regardless, Garfield pretty much nailed them all. Give it a look.

He may be a little late to the K-Pop party, he makes for up for it with commitment and enthusiasm. Let's all give CHARLI a round of applause... Before he decides to turn against his human masters.
