The celebrities are lining up to stand still. 

Adele, Hillary Clinton, Jon Bon Jovi, James Corden and a handful of other famous faces across the industry have joined in on the latest craze sweeping the Internet—the Mannequin Challenge. 

Having started with high school student, the viral trend has officially made its way to Tinseltown. The task is simple in concept, but much more challenging in practice. Participants must stand completely still in a pose to appear like mannequins frozen in time. 

The "Hello" singer, who was stopped in Texas for a concert, took her position in a western saloon-themed Mannequin Challenge, complete with cowboy hats and a full bar with Johnny Cash's "Man in Black" playing in the background. 

On the eve of Election Day, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her team—including celebrity guest Jon Bon Jovi—took on the challenge while onboard her campaign plane. The video was strategic with a final message to voters. "Don't stand still," the video concluded. "Vote today."

Corden got his entire staff and live audience in on the viral fun by taping a Mannequin Challenge from behind the scenes of the studio all the way through to the Late Late Show's set. 

The challenge got even chicer when fashion's elite tried it out at the CFDA Fashion Fund Awards. Kelly Rowland, Solange Knowles and Hailey Bieber were among the fashionable participants posed around the table at the annual dinner. 

The former member of Destiny's Child reunited with her girl group to complete the challenge with Michelle Williams and Beyoncé

Celebrities, it's time to get in formation—the #MannequinChallenge is calling.
