There are Taylor Swift fans in the world, and then there are SUPER fans. One such fan is 7-year-old Dylan Barnes, who enthusiastically performed the pop star’s hit “Shake It Off” in a video that went viral — and that got Ellen DeGeneres’ attention. This spurred DeGeneres to have Barnes on her show last week, where he talked about his love for the singer. It also included him performing his dance… and THAT video went viral.
Then on Monday night, Barnes’ dream came true. Swift made a surprise appearance at his home, and the two got to “Shake It Off” together.
“Finally got to meet Dylan, the 7-year-old who passionately danced to Shake It Off on Ellen,” Swift wrote on her Instagram video. “And this happened.” We’ve pasted that below.
Dylan’s mom, Mojdeh Barnes, thanked Swift on Twitter. “Thank you @taylorswift13 for making #persianbigred dreams come true! You are a class act! #shakeitoff #TaylorSwift,” she tweeted.
Check out the two in the video above. We’ve also pasted Barnes’ original video below so you can see what started it all.
And then there’s this video, too.
