Taylor Swift shakes if off with cute 7-year-old super fan

Taylor Swift made a super fan's dream come true when she invited him to meet her backstage after a concert – and to dance to Shake It Off together. A few days prior the young Swiftie had appeared on The Ellen Show where he flaunted his impressive dance skills, and in return, was given concert tickets by host Ellen DeGeneres.

Finally able to meet his heroine in person, Dylan Barnes – a seven-year-old from Overland Park, Kansas – clearly couldn't contain his excitement.

The ecstatic youngster was filmed twirling, jumping and even doing a handstand alongside pop princess Taylor.

Finally got to meet Dylan, the 7-year-old who passionately danced to Shake It Off on Ellen--- and this happened.

"Finally got to meet Dylan, the 7-year-old who passionately danced to Shake It Off on Ellen --- and this happened," wrote Taylor alongside an Instagram clip.

The pair made the perfect dancing duo, with Taylor, dressed in a tight red crop top and skinny jeans, rocking her famous moves in the background while Dylan took centre stage.

The young boy was catapulted into the spotlight after a video of him dancing to Shake It Off went viral on Facebook. It has since been viewed more than 6.4 million times.

The youngster said he normally just "makes it up" and doesn't stick to dance routines

Appearing on The Ellen Show, Dylan, who has been attending dance school for two years, spoke about his passion for dancing.

"So you started doing this Taylor Swift routine, and how did you come up with the routine for Shake It Off?" asked comedian Ellen.

"I don't really, like, practice it," said Dylan. "I normally just make it up during the dance, so I never like, go in my living room and start practising."

"Is that where you normally dance, in the living room?" said Ellen.

"Yeah, but if my brothers are watching the Royals game or something, I watch some it, and then I probably go on the iPad, watch The Ellen Show, watch Dance Moms, or I just go in my mum and dad's room and if I can't watch it there I go in my room and start dancing in my room."

After his electric performance, the funnywoman gave a thrilled Dylan tickets to Taylor's Kansas concert, while also hinting that the super fan might be able to meet the chart-topper in person.
