Margzetta Frazier Goes Viral With Janet Jackson Inspired Floor Routine

Following fellow UCLA gymnast Nia Dennis’ viral floor performance less than three weeks ago, junior Margzetta Frazier’s floor routine is circling online. From Women’s Health, to Yahoo! Life, PopSugar, LA Times, Huffington Post, USA Today and many more, everyone is watching her latest routine that scored a 9.925 on February 10th against BYU. 

This was the first debut of the new routine, set to a mix of songs by Janet Jackson. Jackson herself noticed Frazier’s routine, tweeting “#iLuvIT @IAmMargzetta!!!,” which is pretty much the only correct reaction to have to this incredible performance. 

Of course, Margzetta was equally thrilled to see her one of her idols repost her routine.

As she danced to moves inspired by Jackson’s “Nasty” and “If,” Frazier truly looks like she could not be having more fun as she serves up sharp choreography and strong tumbling passes, competing a roundoff-whip layout-backhandspring-backhandspring-double tuck and a double pike.

It’s easy to tell where she got her inspiration from, looking at Jackson’s music videos side by side Frazier’s routine. 

During the meet UCLA was ahead of BYU by less than a tenth going into floor, which was the final rotation of the night. Frazier’s performance was one of the routines that sealed the win against the Cougars, and contributed to the Bruins' highest floor score of the season, a 49.425. The final score of the meet was 196.600-196.325. 

Frazier has gone semi-viral before for her voguing-inspired floor set in 2019 and is well-loved in the gymnastics community for every fun floor routine she competes, but with all the attention this routine is getting, it has the potential to be her most famous yet.

Thank goodness Frazier is only a junior this year, because we’re going to need at least another season of her after this. 

If you can’t get enough of Margzetta, you can catch her mic’d up with Nia Dennis at the same competition, where she recaps the meet and discusses her performance.
