'Backpack Kid' Gives Career Defining Performance On 'SNL'

By Zachary Brenner

The season finale of Saturday Night Live aired this past weekend. A lot of people are calling it the best season in years. Naturally, they went out on a high note, but one performer really stole the show. Of course, I am talking about Backpack Kid.

What you've never heard of 15 year old Russel Horning the internet dance sensation who is known world wide for his "Flossing" dance move? Shame if not check out his career defining performance last night during Katy Perry performing Swish Swish on Saturday Night Live.

I mean, Katy Perry was great, but clearly the best part of that video is a 15-year-old-from Georgia named Russel Horning, also known as, Backpack Kid. He's got almost 500k followers on Instagram and has been somewhat of a cult icon the past few months, but it wasn't until his appearance on SNL did people truly begin to appreciate his laid back dance moves.
