Seven-year-old dancer Salome Rivas sure knows how to steal the show. The Miami resident recently appeared on The Jennifer Hudson Show to perform a dance number where she stole the heart of the crowd.

Baby Salome Rivas Performs on The Jennifer Hudson Show

On October 17, The Jennifer Hudson Show welcomed Rivas to set for a special interview. Amid guest starring on the show, the kid dancer talked about her past in dance.

“One day, my mom and dad put a music, I was a baby, and I stand up and started moving my hips,” she said.

After her short conversation with Hudson, Rivas took the stage to dance to Don Omar and Lil Jon’s “Let’s Get Crazy.” On stage, the Miami resident showed off her precise dance moves and cute facial expressions. It’s thus no surprise seeing the Miami resident effortlessly capturing the audience.

Later on, Hudson revealed that they prepared a sweet surprise for her. It turns out that Rivas had just celebrated her birthday after the American Idol alum celebrated hers. With that, the show has prepared a glittery gift for the viral kid.

“I saw that you like sparkly things, like sparkly jackets. So you know, I have to give my Virgo friend a gift, right? We got this lovely gift for you,” she said, then handing the shimmering unicorn jacket to Rivas.

Rivas is originally from the United States, although she’s of Venezuelan blood. She began dancing when she was two years old, taking ballet classes and getting training through her dancer parents. During the interview, Rivas stated that her favorite dance styles are salsa, ballroom, and hip-hop.

This little girl has been viral for some time now. She’s recognized for her dancing videos to Latin music, most especially reggaeton. Latin music stars including Colombian singer Karol G have seen her content and have reposted her.

At present, Rivas has 2.1 million followers on Instagram and 23.9 thousand followers on YouTube. Her social media accounts are currently being managed by her parents.

Fans Are Gushing Over Her Cuteness and Adorable Talent

Upon witnessing Rivas’s performance, fans were quick to comment on her performance. Clearly, she has attracted more fans with her recent guesting.

“This little girl is my favorite little human in the world aside from my daughter. She ALWAYS puts a smile on my face. SHE IS INCREDIBLE,” one person wrote.

“What a talent and beauty she is! I can’t wait to see her again. I really enjoyed her performance,” another person wrote.

“She was born to shine! You can’t teach charisma or charm, and she is full of it,” another user commented.

Among the positive comments are several fans thanking The Jennifer Hudson Show for bringing her on. Meanwhile, others praised how well the talk show host communicated with Rivas during the interview.

On Instagram, Rivas expressed gratitude for her fans. She’s also particularly mentioned her parents for their support.

“Thanks to everyone who has supported me wholeheartedly,” she wrote. “Thank God first, to the Program staff, to @eduardoosorio_ and @ascohen78 , and to my parents for their support @yomilrivas @rusojeda.”

Clearly, Salome Rivas is one to watch out in the next years to come. If the seven-year-old will continue to pursue her passion for dance, she’ll eventually be one of her generation’s global dancing superstars.
