As if 23 million views wasn’t enough recognition, our favorite 43-year-old dance phenom is getting even more love from Post Malone for his viral video.

Mike Alancourt went viral a couple of weeks back for his dance routine to “Wow,” impressing not only Ellen Degeneres and Will Smith, but the man whose song made it all happen.

The video was originally posted by Jacksonville dance studio 1 Vibe Dance, which offers dance classes for all levels. The dancer headed to a bigger stage this week.

Alancourt appeared on Ellen yesterday to perform on national TV, but much to his surprise, that wasn’t all. Ellen worked her magic and had Posty himself share a special message.
“I love your moves and you kick ass, and I’d like to invite you out to my show in Arizona this Sunday. It’ll be fun to have you,” Malone says.

We’ll be anxiously awaiting the next chapter in Alancourt’s story, hopefully as a backup dancer for his gig Sunday.

Check out Alancourt’s performance on Ellen and Posty’s shoutout below.

We also might need to see Alancourt prepare a new routine for the “Wow” remix with Tyga and Roddy Ricch, which dropped a few days ago.

Posty has proven again and again he is one of the nicest guys ever even when dealing with some Yelawolf beef in a recent diss track.

The rapper mentions G-Eazy, Machine Gun Kelly and, for some reason, Post. He claims “he don’t even rap” and says he’s only mentioning him because he wants a response:

“Who else? I would diss Post Malone but he don’t even rap/Fuck it, fuck Post Malone, just because, let’s see if he answers back/All that change, tits, and funk chill bill, and the cowboy boots and hats/Damn Posty, why can’t we be friends? Our clothes already match

“Poser, biter, appropriation thief, give a fuck how many records you sold/Every fan you made is a leaf off of my tree/Boy you’re my seed, another mullet in the gang with the teeth I see/I just picked a bone with Post Malone and did it all on a Beastside beat”

Post Malone wasn’t going down without a fight though. He responded to the track on Twitter, calling Yelawolf a “nerd.”
