Ugly Dance World Cup

While reality-bound viewers voting on and off celebs in the United States, Germany has pushed its own version, coined Dancing with the Slugs or correctly the Ugly Dance World Cup in Hamburg. Instead of a good tango, samba or waltz, their take is more designed to regurgitate your latest meal.

And this year’s winners are a group of four teenagers from Vechta, a northwestern German town. The quartet beat out nine other teams from Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg. According to the competition’s official website, the winning four won over the judges with epic ugliness, horrible appearance and the Shy Dance.

"It's so easy to dance nicely, but ugly dancing is an art. We like to call it "ugly aesthetics," competition organizers said.

The competition was set up in 2009 to create a platform for alternative dancing styles. The criteria for selection include outstanding ugliness, creativity, singularity/unseen moves and fun factor. Of course, this now puts Germany's reputation of precise efficiency at stake.
