of you and I was like, this kid is amazing. You’re 10 years old. How long you’ve been dancing? I’ve been dancing since I
was 3, so about 6 years. Or 7. So you started dancing at 3. Did you have that rhythm
in you at 3 years old? Yeah. I’ve always just liked dancing. Just, you know, doing
on the Nintendo. It’s like– Oh, the Nintendo machine– You know, where you
like, hold the thing and like, pop and lock. Right, right. Do you take dance
class or anything? Yes, I do. You do? Because you’re
really, really good. Did you win the dance contest? Yeah. I hope so. Yeah. I was like, I feel sorry
for anybody following him. That’s amazing. So you were on a cruise
and you did that, and that was just
kind of on a whim. You didn’t know that
someone was filming that, and then it went viral. Were you surprised on
how many people saw it? Yeah, I’d never think I would
go viral at the age of 10, but you know what? It ended me up on my favorite
TV show, so I’m OK with it. Ah, that’s so sweet. That’s so sweet. Yeah, Twitch is pretty good too. Yeah. We’re back with 10-year-old
dancer Ryan Starr. And so you were on a cruise,
and was that your first cruise? It was actually my 13th cruise. Wow. You all go on a lot of cruises. Yeah, it’s one of
the only vacations we do because when I
was a baby I enjoyed it. So ever since, I’ve
always done it. And I’m actually Platinum,
and on the very last day, I went into the VIP party and
I got awarded the youngest Platinum member. So when I get older,
if I become Diamond, I want to bring my wife on
board and get her Diamond too. Wow. That’s wonderful. OK. So 13 cruises. That’s a lot of cruises. And you’ve loved it
since you were a baby, and so they decided– you decided that you were
going on cruises all the time. All right. So what happened after the
competition on the ship? For the rest of the
cruise, everyone was coming up to me trying
to get pictures for me, calling me famous. People were coming up to me
and asking me for autographs. It was kind of awkward. Right, well it’s going
to be more awkward now. Now people are really
going to call you famous because you’re on a TV show. All right, so I got
something for you because you love cruises. Right? All right, so Carnival
Cruise is sending you on the maiden voyage aboard
the Carnival Panorama to the Mexican Riviera
for a 7 day cruise. That’s where you’re going. [APPLAUSE]
