The crowd was getting very restless and Mike did his best to keep them quiet. Before we found out who won we watched a great show of half naked girls dancing around with swords and snakes on their heads while putting their legs behind their backs. The winner? The dancing girls. Sure, it wasn’t an app but it definitely stole the show.
No, but seriously folks, the big winner was the 7Digital Music Store for $75K. Congrats!
