If American gymnast Jordyn Wieber is any indicator, then Eurovision really has gone global.

Wieber, the 2011 U.S. all-around champion, has chosen Ruslana’s winning 2004 Eurovision song “Wild Dances” for her floor routine. Wiwi made the discovery yesterday while watching the team finals of the World Gymnastics Championships in Tokyo. You can compare their performances below! Jordyn’s leotard is tight, but Ruslana’s may be even tighter ; )

I don’t think Ruslana won at Eurovision 2044.  You would want to check your captions there Wiwi.

But for us the ones who DO notice, it’s a really nice detail. 😀
