Kid Started Dancing In The Stands— Crowd Takes Notice & Can’t Get Enough!

It’s pretty hard to sit still during Pharrell Williams’s smash hit “Happy.” At the very least, you should clap along.

When the song came on at the 2015 Kentucky High School state basketball tournament, one fan took the lyrics to the song to heart. “Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth. Because I’m happy. Clap along if you know what happiness is to you. Because I’m happy. Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do.”

Peyton “Peanut” Henderson clapped along – and then some!


Peyton started dancing to the song and remained relatively under the radar. But as soon as people began to take notice of the young boy dancing like no one was watching, everyone started doing just that.


He quickly got REALLY into his dance moves, taking advantage of all the space the bleachers allowed.


He took it down low – down low to the floor.


And brought it back up high, waving his arms around like he just didn’t care.


Peyton’s enthusiasm was definitely infectious and soon others were standing, dancing, and cheering him on.


Never stop living your best life, Peyton. Clearly, dancing is what happiness means to you – and we’re so glad you shared it with us!

Watch Peyton’s passionate performance below and just try not to get up and dance with him! Be sure to share this young dancing machine’s talents with your friends.
