Ellen makes a tiny dancer's dreams come true

Posted on

You probably knew the moment you saw 4-year-old Anthony “JFreeze” Naylor Jr.’s too-cute-for-words audition on So You Think You Can Dance on May 21 that he’d soon make his way to that other television bastion of dancing, The Ellen Degeneres Show. But of course, having the cool-as-a-cucumber youngster perform for another national audience wasn’t enough for the host. On Tuesday’s show, taped last week, Ellen surprised Anthony by bringing out his dance hero Cyrus “Glitch” Spencer from season 9 of SYTCD and having the two pop, lock, and generally have a blast together.

Check out the video below and try not to smile when Anthony’s jaw drops when first sees Cyrus about 1:46 in.
