To say that Go Go Gadjet shook the Bryce Jordan Center would be an understatement.
The State College-based cover band brought nearly all those in the arena's stands to their feet as the last act to perform at Interfraternity Council/Panhellenic Dance Marathon Weekend 2012.
"How we doin' Bryce Jordan Center? Let's dance," Go Go Gadjet frontman Jeff Tomrell said, opening the band's fifth performance at THON weekend and continuing a tradition of ending it.
The band opened with Martin Solveig's "Hello," causing the arena to shake with those jumping up and down.
Tomrell's digitally distorted voice shined through on Rihanna's "We Found Love" and Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass."
Four Diamonds Fund families, committee overalls and other volunteers danced on stage with the band as hundreds of balloons dropped from the ceiling onto the dance floor.
The group also went electronic for covers of Avicii's "Levels" and Skrillex's "Cinema," drawing a huge response from audience members.
Tomrell went tender on "My Hero" by Foo Fighters on epic on LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It," which featured a dancing Nittany Lion mascot.
Go Go Gadjet finally closed with LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," inviting children to join them along with Four Diamonds Fund child Tucker Haas.
"Thank you for doing what you do," Tomrell said before leaving the stage.
