EAST RUTHERFORD -- The Whip is old news.

That was for Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., the rookie.

In his second season, Beckham is on to newer, hipper dances for his touchdown celebrations. He pulled out the "Hit dem folks" dance on his 30-yard touchdown reception in Thursday night's 32-21 victory over the Washington Redskins at MetLife Stadium.

When Victor Cruz gets healthy, the Giants are hoping for a dance-off.

"It was nothing, man. I'm just out there having fun. It's called 'Hit dem folks.' It just a little dance they created in Atlanta," Beckham said. "Always bringing something new. Yeah, man, that is all it is."

Beckham, who did the Cristiano Ronaldo on his first touchdown catch in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons, isn't the first NFL star to do the "Hit dem folks." Panthers quarterback Cam Newton did a version of it on Sunday when he reached the end zone. Of course, Newton scored on a neat flip, so he wins on style points.

It's likely Beckham will have plenty of opportunities for some new dances this season. He's getting into the end zone with regularity. He now has 14 touchdowns in 15 career games.

On Beckham's score Thursday night, the Giants saw the coverage they wanted. The Redskins had Bashaud Breeland on Beckham 1-on-1, with no deep help from the safety. Beckham ran deep down the seam, faked outside, went inside and snagged the ball out of the air in the end zone.

The TD put the Giants ahead, 25-6, and -- unlike losses in the first two weeks -- they weren't going to let this game slip away in the final quarter against Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.  

"[The coverage] was good enough to get it done," Beckham said. "One of the coaches came up to me after the game and was telling me when he called the play and saw them roll the coverage in the game, he knew it was going to be a touchdown. It just happened to be perfect timing, perfect play call, perfect situation."

It just seems to happen that way often when the Giants play the Redskins. Beckham has 19 catches for 222 yards and four touchdowns in two career games against Washington. He missed the first meeting last season with a hamstring injury.

RELATED: Good, bad and ugly from Thursday night

The Giants have won five straight meetings with the Redskins. It's their saving grace in the NFC East over the past two-plus seasons.

"I don't know what it is. There is just something about [the Redskins]. It's a division rivalry," Beckham said. "It just happens some times against Washington I guess."

And it gives him plenty of opportunities to celebrate and dance, with plenty more likely on the horizon.

2011 to Now – The Hilltop

The Cat Daddy: 2011

  • While most of us were in middle school, the “Cat Daddy” became extremely popular. California party scene hip-hop group, the Rej3ctz, released this song in March 2011 and it quickly became the top most requested song at most middle and high school functions.

The Harlem Shake: 2013

  • Many of us know that the Harlem Shake originated decades ago in New York; however, in 2013, the New York based Crazy Boyz decided to put a twist on the old time dance. The dance crew combined their shake with another dance movement to give the Harlem Shake its modern hip-hop flair.

Gas Pedal & Red Nose: 2013

  • Sage The Gemini quickly gained attention when he released these two sexy dance hits. They easily get a party going.

The Schmoney: 2014

  • Bobby Shmurda hit the scene in 2014 with his hit single that featured the hit the ‘Schmoney dance.’ Soon, people were not only doing it to his song, but incorporating it into dance routines for other top chart songs.

The Whip/Nae Nae: 2015

  • The Whip/Nae Nae was probably the 2015 equivalent of Unk’s mid-2000s Walk it Out dance. Everybody in the Black community, and even outside of it, was doing this dance created by Atlanta rapper Silentó. The dance became popular with everyone—young and old.

The Dab: 2015

  • Although short lived, The Dab was the one of the most popular dances of 2015.  Athletes, celebrities, actors and even politicians were seen ‘dabbing’ all over the country. Most people have ditched the dab now, but it was cool while it lasted.

The Milly Rock 2015:

  • Milly rocking on any block was one of top trends during the end of 2015. Of course, most of the best milly rocks are done by New Yorkers; however, the dance can most likely be seen at any gathering these days.

Juju on That Beat: 2016

Hit Dem Folks: 2016

  • Many don’t know about the official name for the move that is done at the end of the Juju on That Beat dance. However, the Hit Dem Folks dance is currently one of the most used dance moves. Ohio artist Shuicide Holla is responsible for the official dance.

    Metalfest - a holiday for metal lovers in the beer capital of the Czech Republic, day 2

    The second day of Metalfest brought performances from My Pulse, Frantic Amber, Serious Black, The Unity, Septicflesh and Citron. In the evening, the guests of the festival were pleased with Ensiferum, Amaranthe and Tarja Turunen and the guest of her show, Sharon den Adel.

    The Finnish band Ensiferum is not the first time at Metalfest - the Finns performed in Pilsen in 2012. Like last time, the energetic folk metal performed by Ensiferum ignited the crowd, especially active fans took part in the slam under the catwalk. nine0077

    The 12-song set included From Afar, One More Magic Potion, Token of Time, Ax of Judgment or Warrior Without a War.

    Ensiferum was followed by the popular Swedish band Amaranthe, which, like the Finns, performs regularly and often in the Czech Republic (at Metalfest in 2015, at Masters Of Rock in 2016). Despite problems with sound at the beginning of the performance, the Swedes managed to get the crowd going from the very beginning - and not slow down until the very end. nine0077

    The quality of the performance was not affected by the recent departure of founding member and vocalist Jake E., who is now replaced by Niels Molin with Amaranthe, nor by the airline's loss of vocalist Elise Reed's baggage, which had to do without stage costumes.

    The band's performance could easily be equal to a full-fledged concert program - as many as 19 songs were played, including hits by The Nexus, Amaranthine, Call Out My Name, Drop Dead Cynical, Digital World and new items That Song and Endlessly. nine0077

    At the end of the show, three children from the crowd rose to the podium, the group reacted very warmly to their appearance, they were sung to, they were played, the kids had an amazing “five minutes of fame”.

    Tarja Turunen and Sharon den Adel at Metalfest Open Air Pilsen | Author: Matej Stefka

    The final of the Saturday program belonged to two beautiful women - Tarja Turunen and Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation). Many people remember Tarja as the vocalist of Nightwish, but it was, as they say, “a long time ago and not true”, since Nightwish has already had a second vocalist - Floor Jansen, and Tarja is a successful solo performer and often visits the Czech Republic with independent concerts (upcoming performances, by the way will take place in December). nine0077

    At Metafest, Tarja, like Amaranthe, played a full set list - 16 songs, including No Bitter End, Demons In You, a cover of Muse's song - Supremacy, Undertaker or Until My Last Breath. A return to the Nightwish era was the Tutankhamen / Ever Dream / The Riddler / Slaying The Dreamer mix.

    In the middle of the performance, Tarja was joined by Sharon - together they performed Angels (a cover of Within Temptation), the song I Walk Alone, and a duet released as a single from Within Temptation's album Hydra - Paradise (What About Us?). It is Paradise that can be safely attributed to the best moments not only of the show, but of the whole day, the Lokhotinsky amphitheater at that moment, figuratively speaking, exploded. nine0077

    The only disadvantage of the joint performance can be considered that Sharon was present for only three songs - many fans, due to the advertising of the show and the joint autograph session, expected more. Despite this slight shortcoming, Tarja's show was a good end to the program of the second day of the festival.
