(The Root) — Golden girl Gabby Douglas led the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday evening in Charlotte, N.C. The 16-year-old Olympian told Politico that she planned to “go out there, be myself and have fun.”
Looks like she did just that. Just before she led the Pledge, she snapped a shot of her and famed saxophonist Brandon Marsalis, who joined her onstage and played the national anthem. Check out Douglas’ tweet, some more Twitter shoutouts and appreciation and a video of the pledge. Oh, and as one of our Facebook readers observed, her arms look Michelle Obama-svelte!
Greatest saxophonist!!!!! instagr.am/p/PNSsYzN5k0/

Last night during the DNC, I thought, “the only way this could get better is if Gabby Douglas shows up.” Fixed: politico.com/blogs/click/20…
