Do you remember being a kid and singing and dancing your heart out to your favorite song? You didn’t care if anyone else was around or watching. You just got into the song like there was nothing else in the world.
If you’re unlucky, then your parents or someone else in the family would have happened to be filming and there’s documentary evidence of your legendary performance.
This epic dance performance took place at a concert by the country music band Rascal Flatts in Pikeville, Kentucky, several years ago.
Before the band came out to perform, the P.A. system was playing music to get the crowd ready. So in the mix, one of the songs included was LMFAO‘s massive hit, “Sexy and I Know It.” This catchy tune skyrocketed to #1 on the Billboard Charts in 2012, conjuring up the massive hit by Right Said Fred, “I’m Too Sexy,” from 1991.
But as hilarious as the original performance was, featuring LMFAO band members in skimpy speedos, it just couldn’t compare to what happened in Kentucky. The moment the song came on, a little boy jumped out of his seat into the aisle and began dancing.
The boy wasn’t just jumping up and down, though he certainly did plenty of that. It seemed like he had watched the music video so many times that he knew exactly what to do. First he did the eggbeater, rolling his arms over each other in the air. Then he did the sprinkler, moving his hand across the crowd from left to right. He had the crowd so excited that the producers just had to put the spotlight on him.
When the song came back to the chorus, he climbed up a couple of the stairs in the aisle with the entire crowd watching him. He did exactly the same moves as LMFAO, making the crowd roar with delight. Pretty soon, everyone was clapping along with him. However, far from being shy or stopping his routine, this little boy kept going, dancing for the entirety of the song.
Thankfully, photographer Kirstie LeAnn happened to be nearby and caught the whole thing on camera and posted the video on YouTube. “A little boy decided to steal the show. Sooo cute!”
Little did the boy’s parents or LeAnn know the video would go on to gain over 11 million views.
Although this kid might be the only one who’s ever taken a concert by storm this way, he does have some competition in the form of a similarly young kid who danced at a wedding in Denmark. This kid has “Jailhouse Rock” down pat, including some pretty great lip-syncing.
