'Backpack Kid' Gives Career Defining Performance On 'SNL'

The season finale of Saturday Night Live aired this past weekend. A lot of people are calling it the best season in years. Naturally, they went out on a high note, but one performer really stole the show. Of course, I am talking about Backpack Kid.

I mean, Katy Perry was great, but clearly the best part of that video is a 15-year-old-from Georgia named Russel Horning, also known as, Backpack Kid. 

For once, the Internet seems to be in agreement about something. Namely, that kid is going places. 

The brief clip above barely captures his greatness. To see more that, you would need to go to his Instagram page

Look, I normally don’t care about dance or dancers, but I’ll always give credit where credit is due. That kid can dance both with and without a backpack. And, you know, everything else that’s impressive about it.
