Well done to everyone who entered.

Sonic the hedgehog shows off his supersonic piano playing skills in this expertly animated MV by MⒶZOkidox.

Simply shining with harmony and rhythm, the musical action includes meticulous finger work, dynamic keyboard camera moves, as well as expressive and pose-full character animation.

Go Sonic, go!

Inspired by the jazz music of Frank Zappa, a concert pianist’s performance features an astonishing buttock based technique in this waggish, and rib-tickling topic winning Flipnote by Slenderman.

After playing through the piece with great passion, and a certain degree of nervous anticipation, when he finally arrives at the posterior note, which is written down in full detail on the sheet music, he lands it hysterically with a dramatic spin, and a key crashing thump!

Now that’s sitting down on the job!

The piano and the drums unwittingly compete in this extremely impressive game play inspired Flipnote winner by JMCU.

The intricate fine line details, and sync-accurate animation of both the players and their instruments was a perfect marriage of music and movement, and WOWed us beyond belief!

Crazy sister Jacky treats us to her very own musical rendition of the keyboard cat meme in this inspired topic winner by Jake.

In an extraordinary performance she strikes the keys with everything from her fingers to her face, and is note perfect to the final bow.

That's a standing ovation right there!

An audience’s appreciation for a master pianist gets totally out of hand in this winning comedy recital created by 2DSXLOwner.

The idea is wonderfully executed with great piano play and voice acting, leading hilariously to a laugh out loud punchline, when the maestro finally loses his cool!

A stick man plays his heart out to the tune of ‘All My Fellas’ by Frizk in this topic winning entry by MillKeny.

He really makes those keys sing!

Our final two winners are both audio recorded piano performances by creators.

In this first one Roman plays ‘Married Life’ from the musical score of Disney’s animated movie ‘Up’.

Very nicely done indeed!

In our second piano performance Ravencourt plays a splendid rendition of ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ on a digital keyboard.

We also greatly enjoyed the highlighted photographs showing chord arrangements and finger placement in the build up before the main piece.

This Weeks Topic - "Sneaky"

Sneaky (definition): Behaving in a secretive and usually dishonest manner.

A sneaky person, or sneaky behavior can be crafty, cunning, deceitful, dishonest, untrustworthy, or furtive.

It can also be the act of sneaking around quietly on tip-toes, so as not to make a sound.

Your Topic Flipnotes could involve sneakiness, or sneaking in any way you choose.

From a cat burglar to a confidence trickster, there’s many great character types to try.

Or why not sneakify your OCs for a devious or clandestine idea?

The sneaky choice is yours!

We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.

Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel Weekly Topic - Sneaky and the deadline for your entries is February 25th (12pm EST / 4pm GMT).

We would also encourage you to add a description to your Flipnotes. This is your opportunity to explain any points of interest and specific details that we could feature in the topic winner reviews.

And don't forget, if you want a cool thumbnail picture on your Flipnote, whichever frame you save the Flipnote on, that will become the thumbnail. So choose your favorite frame for this, or add in a cool title page at the end, and save on that.

Keep on Flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
