Taylor Swift danced on Monday backstage in Kansas City with seven-year-old Dylan Barnes, the red headed boy whose video of himself doing a spirited rendition of her song “Shake It Off” recently went viral. Watch the video below of Swift with Barnes!

As Gossip Cop reported, Barnes goes by the stage name “Big Red” and amassed more than six million views for the video he posted to Facebook of himself shaking, twirling, spinning, and jumping around, all while holding a microphone and singing along to Swift’s hit.

Earlier this week, Barnes appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he talked about the video before recreating his impassioned dance moves for the audience. The talk show host then surprised Barnes with tickets to Swift’s upcoming 1989 show, where he got to go backstage and meet his idol.

On Tuesday, Swift posted an Instagram video of her following Barnes’ lead as he once again performed an animated version of “Shake It Off,” complete with his own original dance moves. Swift captioned the video, “Finally got to meet Dylan, the 7-year-old who passionately danced to Shake It Off on Ellen— and this happened.”

Watch Taylor Swift “Shake It Off” with her seven-year-old fan “Big Red,” and tell Gossip Cop what you think.
