His moonwalk on the streets of Paris took him to the United States. On Wednesday, Salif Gueye, a young French dancer, hosted the host Ellen DeGene's show in the United States.
"I saw this guy dancing on the streets of Paris, of course, I had to make him dance in my show!", Wrote the star on social networks.
Everything started with a video published last month on his Instagram account Salif_crookboyz. At Michael Jackson, he follows the dance ladder and performs with a confusing ease a perfect moonwalk, under the eyes of Parisians sitting on the terrace.
Viralized, the video has been shown more than seven million times and forwarded by American stars, from Dwayne Johnson to basketball player LeBron James.
"Is it real?"
Visibly impressed with Ellen DeGener's couch, the young 22-year-old Parisian dancer himself found it hard to believe in his career in a few days.
"It's true, it's a dream that remembered, I never thought I'd be here one day, it's amazing!" Enthuses Salif Gueye before commencing a dance show on the set of the American show.
"This is just the beginning," he wrote to his 1.3 million subscribers at Instagram after the show aired. From now on, Salif is headed by producers for exhibitions in the United States.
