Cheerleaders Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies slayed their Super Bowl routine and cemented their performance in the Big Game’s history. The duo became the first male cheerleaders to perform during the sporting event. In support of the Los Angeles Rams, the cheerleaders danced their asses off at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Thank you so much for all the love and support,” Jinnies said in a video after the memorable moment, with Peron added: “You guys are the best.”
Not only were Jinnies and Peron the first men to join the Los Angeles Rams’ cheerleading team, but they also became the first male cheerleaders in the NFL when they made the official squad.
