Simone Biles and her team’s favorite warm-up song

Simone and her team have been performing to some of the best songs for their Gold Over America performances. These songs vary from Korean sensation BTS’ popular hit Dynamite to celebrity singer Sia’s Bird Set Free.

However, for their warm-up routine, Simone and other gymnasts have a special song.

Olympic champions, Biles and Jordon, recently appeared on the Kelly Clarkson show. It was there that Simone revealed the songs they have been playing on the Gold Over America tour.

Biles said, “Yeah, so during the show, we have a lot of pop hits that make people want to jump up and get from the crowd and kind of dance along.”
