Arthur Duncan was surprised by Betty White on the series premiere of “Little Big Shots: Forever Young” on Wednesday. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, “Little Big Shots” showcases ordinary kids with extraordinary talents. After a successful first season, NBC ordered a spinoff, subtitled “Forever Young,” to highlight senior citizens who also have remarkable skills and qualities. Season two of the main show just ended last week, clearing the way for this new edition to get the spotlight.

The first episode featured Duncan, who broke down color barriers as a tap dancer in the 1960s. But according to him, White deserves some credit for his accomplishments. He told host Steve Harvey, “She was the first one that gave me a job on television.” The comedian explained to the studio audience, “See, back then, African-Americans, they wouldn’t put you on TV. She fought to get him on TV and put her foot down and said, ‘If he don’t do the show, you ain’t gonna have me,’ and you needed people with that.”

Harvey then had Duncan move to another portion of the stage so that, unbeknownst to him, White could make her entrance. “I kind of wanted to give you a little moment right here. We have a little surprise for you, Arthur,” the TV host told him. “Turn around right there.” Duncan appeared stunned to see White sitting in a chair behind him.

Going over to hug the icon, Duncan could be heard saying, “Betty, it’s so good to see you! Oh my god!” For her part, White said, “I’ve been such a fan of this man for all my life.” He touchingly and amusingly added, “I think I’m ready to go now!” But first, Duncan sang and tapped to everyone’s delight.

As White fans may recall, she previously hosted “Off Their Rockers,” in which older folk played practical jokes on younger generations. Check out the “Forever Young” videos below!
