Last night, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers played host to Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors in a rematch of the last three NBA Finals. Kevin Durant scored 32 points to help Golden State win 118-108, but the real MVP of the night didn’t suit up for either team. Five-year-old dancing sensation Tavaris Jones stole the show from LeBron, Durant, and Steph when he delivered an unforgettable dance performance of “Rolex” by Ayo & Teo at halftime.
What makes this video truly remarkable is the fact that most five-year-olds lack even the most basic sense of rhythm, making it impossible for them to learn any dance moves beyond shaking their body and bobbing their head. That’s no problem for Jones, who nails every single move in his performance. But Jones doesn’t just have great rhythm for a kid, at age five, he is already a far better dancer than most adults could ever dream of being.
It also doesn’t hurt that the kid is a natural performer, as he doesn’t look the least bit nervous to be performing in front of thousands of people. Thanks to his top-notch dancing and incredible confidence, Jones was able to quickly win over the crowd with his moves and received a huge round of applause when he was finished.
This isn’t the first time Jones has been given a chance to perform in front of a crowd, as he was a guest on Ellen earlier this year ⏤ turns out he’s a hilarious interview as well. Considering how talented of a dancer Jones is at age five, we can only imagine the moves this kid is going to bust by the time he’s an adult.
