Winner of Alan Jackson “Good Times” line dance contest

As part of the GE line dance commercial to Alan Jackson’s song, “Good Time,” GE sponsored  a line dance contest on YouTube awarding any GE Energy Star® appliances up to $10,000 in value. And the winner is: Jeremy Norris.

Norris is a 21-year-old third year college student. On his YouTube channel he writes “If you have a dream, don’t be afraid to make them into realities. I believe if you want something go and take it…and life life to the fullest. You only have one.”

Norris is from Goldsboro, North Carolina. He graduated from South Haven High school and currently attends Wichita State University, Kansas. He also works as a blackjack dealer.

Norris loves sports, dancing and “Two and a Half Men” and “Family Guy.”

To make the video, he used Sony Vegas Pro for masking. The video was filmed in Kansas and features Norris and an unnamed friend.

Videos were submitted during March and into the first week of April, ending on 8 April 2011. Public voting continued from the start of the submission period until 15 April 2011.

The grand prize winner was notified 22 April 2011.
