Little Kid Dancing at a Wedding Totally Steals the Spotlight From the Bride

He's basically the Billy Elliot of wedding dancing

As the old saying goes: dance like nobody’s watching. This little kid, whose spirited dance routine was captured at a wedding by YouTube user Blake Weir, really took that advice to heart. The experience seems so spiritual and transcendent for him that he doesn’t even appear to hear the music (which happens to be “Sweet Caroline.”) Instead, he’s simply listening to the music playing in his own heart.

Watch Laverne Cox Dance Like Nobody’s Watching During Beyoncé’s VMAs Performance

She really needs to be in Bey's next video

While Blue Ivy was doing some tasteful head-bobbing during Beyoncé’s VMAs performance, actress Laverne Cox was just rocking out.

While everyone around her sat quietly enjoying the show (including Kim Kardashian), the Orange Is the New Black star was on the next level. Up on her feet, waving her arms, wiggling her hips and singing along to “Blow,” it’s clear that she was having a better time than pretty much anyone in the audience.

Best. Ever. Cox is basically saying: All hail Queen Bey.

We hope Cox and Beyoncé become besties really soon (if they aren’t already) so Cox can star in Bey’s next music video and so Bey can make an appearance in an OITNB episode. Bey, if you’re out there, make it happen.

Chris Christie Shows Off His World-Famous Dance Moves Onstage With Jamie Foxx

The New York Post called it "rambunctious gyrating"

At a benefit in the Hamptons this weekend, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie busted out his incredible dance moves (which he recently showed off on The Tonight Show), much to the delight of the crowd.

“I know you’ve got a dance in you, Chris Christie,” said Jamie Foxx, who urged the politician to join him onstage, according to the New York Post. He promptly made his way up to the stage for what the Post aptly described as “rambunctious gyrating.”

Sadly, there’s no audio, so we recommend turning on some Donna Summer to play in the background. Here, hit play on this and then return to the Christie video:

Vin Diesel Shows Jimmy Fallon His Breakdancing Moves

Vin Diesel shows Fallon how he and his brother used to make a little side cash

Before he got famous, Vin Diesel and his brother were already in the entertainment business — not as actors, but as breakdancers.

Naturally, during last night’s Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon convinced him to demonstrate a few of his moves. And Diesel obliged, despite wearing dress pants.

Diesel appeared on the show to promote his upcoming movie Guardians of the Galaxy, due in theaters Friday.

Forever young

The elderly man in this video may need two canes to walk, but he doesn’t need them to dance.

The user who uploaded this video to Facebook, Edgard Eleuterio Daza, gave it a short and sweet caption that sums the whole thing up pretty well: “Eternamente joven.”

Translation: forever young.

VIDEO: Double Amputee Amy Purdy Dazzles on Dancing with the Stars

Purdy is off to a great start in the season 18 premiere

Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy lost both legs below the knee when she was 19, but that didn’t stop her from snowboarding — or even dancing on national TV.

In between the Sochi 2014 Paralympic events, Purdy practiced in hotel lobbies with partner Derek Hough to prepare for Dancing with the Stars.

The result? A stunning performance that received a standing ovation from the audience and a score of 24/30 from the judges.

“For somebody to take the chance and be courageous enough to do a show like this, it’s just really inspiring to me,” Hough wrote on his blog. “I could tell without even meeting her that she didn’t see herself as disabled.”

Watch the awe-inspiring performance up top.
