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.
For once, the Internet seems to be in agreement about something. Namely, that kid is going places. His account has already blossomed up to almost 1 million followers with many famous people dying to get him to show up on their talk shows and appear in their music videos. Apparently he's already slated to be a fixture in Katy Perry's music video for Swish Swish due later this year.
The brief clip above barely captures his greatness. To see more that, you would need to go to his Instagram page.
Look, I normally don't care about dance or dancers, but I'll always give credit where credit is due. That kid can dance both with and without a backpack. And, you know, everything else that's impressive about it. He's making waves cause everyone is trying to copy his swag.
