PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - He is a little boy from Eastern Kentucky who has become an internet sensation.

Videos of 6-year-old Keaton Conn dancing at a concert in Pikeville have flooded social media.

Chances are you have seen it, the video of a little boy dancing his heart out at the Rascal Flatts concert, capturing the attention of thousands.

We had the pleasure of meeting 6-year-old Keaton Conn and quickly realized 'shy' is not in his vocabulary.

His video has gone viral with hundreds of thousands of views and national attention, but his mom says that is just Keaton being Keaton.

"That's just Keaton doing what he does all day long, dance and sing, dance and sing. That's just him," she said.

Keaton's mom says she had no idea that when she took him to see the Rascal Flatts play that he would soon become the newest internet sensation.

"As I was videoing someone was like look around, and as I looked around the whole arena's standing and I'm like oh my goodness!" she said.

Keaton says he was just having fun to his favorite song "Sexy and I Know It."

And with dance moves like that we could not resist having a little dance lesson. We asked Keaton where he learned his moves, and he told us it just comes naturally.

Keaton's family says they are proud of their little man whose dancing days seem to be far from over.

YouTube videos of Keaton dancing at the concert have received nearly 300,000 views already.
