Ellen DeGeneres has helped yet another person’s dreams come true! The talk show host sent viral YouTube dancer Dylan Barnes backstage at Taylor Swift’s concert on Sept. 21, and Taylor shared an amazing video of herself dancing with him to ‘Shake It Off’ in her dressing room.
Dylan Barnes, 7, made headlines for his amazing dance moves set to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” and at her concert in Kansas City on Sept. 21, he got to perform that routine with his idol! Watch the incredible video Taylor herself posted to Instagram of the pair breaking it down!
After a video of Dylan dancing and singing along to Tay’s hit went viral, Ellen DeGeneres invited the 7-year-old to appear on her show and do the routine live. Never one to shy away from doing something big, the talk show host shocked Dylan by gifting him with two tickets and backstage passes to the 25-year-old’s concert in Kansas City after he performed.
And Taylor didn’t just take a quick picture and let Dylan be on his way! Instead, she invited him into her dressing room, played her hit song, and danced with him. Wearing high-waisted jeans and a crop top sweater, the “Wildest Dreams” singer showed off her best moves, and watched her superfan in awe.
“Finally got to meet Dylan, the 7-year-old who passionately danced to Shake It Off on Ellen — and this happened,” she captioned the fun video. Dylan looked like he had an AMAZING time, and his mom took to Twitter to thank Taylor for everything that went down.
“Thank you @taylorswift13 for making #persianbigred dreams come true!” she wrote. “You are a class act!” Of course…we agree! Watch the video and refresh yourself on Dylan’s Ellen appearance right here:
