The Bigger Dance is an annual contest held by KJR (AM) in Seattle, WA modeled after the NCAA Basketball Tournaments. Listeners fill out brackets of 64 female celebrities with points awarded for correctly picking the winner of each "games". Games are decided by call-in voting periods. The winner of the bracket is dubbed "Queen of the Hardwood", and the listener with the highest scoring bracket is awarded a trip to see any sporting event in the world.

Wow. I'd never heard of it!

If you knew “Baby Got Back” was impeccably suited to an orchestral rendition, I owe you something nice. But until I get your prize together, we can sit together and bask in the glory of composer Gabriel Prokofiev and the Seattle Symphony’s flawless team-up with proud local native Six Mix-A-Lot, who still sounds/is great. Skip to 2:30 to get down to business.
