VIRAL: Rapper Dances With Mom In HILARIOUS High School Talent Show Clip!

High school talent shows can be a cringe-fueled yawnfest. But when North Carolinian mum of two, Ginny Jenkins, took centre-stage with her high-school son, Scott, for an unexpectedly awesome dance-off, the audience’s reaction was priceless!

Kicking off their “History of Dance” routine with a hilarious shuffle to Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” Scott and Ginny’s backing track unexpectedly medleyed into a round of the “Macarena,” with all dance moves intact and impeccable. Then, Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual” saw Scott swinging his arms and finger-clicking 60s-style to the beat, before Ginny pushed him aside for an epic cowgirl dance to “Cotton-Eyed Joe.”

The mum-and-son duo danced the “YMCA” letters together before a flurry of iconic hip-hop tracks welcomed music video moves that sent the audience screaming. These included a Michael Jackson moonwalk, the crab-walk from M.C. Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This,” and dances immortalised in Silento’s “Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae)” and Soulja Boy’s “Crank That.”

While Ginny and Scott’s routine alternated between head-to-head dance battles and staggering harmony, Ginny’s street-dance skills were obscenely good, winning over their internet audience. A clip of their amazing performance went viral, gaining over 2.4M views on YouTube to date, and 55+ million on Facebook!

Ginny Jenkins works as a guidance counselor at Scott’s high school, Myers Park, in Charlotte, N.C. Incredibly, it was Ginny’s idea to do a hip-hop dance-off with her son at the school’s talent show, not Scott’s! According to her interview with WBTV, hip-hop dancing is “a staple in her home,” and Ginny’s perfect recreation of viral hip-hop dance crazes proves it.

Ginny told WCNC, “I conned my son, who also likes to dance as much as I do, to do it with me … If you ask most of our friends, we are the dancing goofy ones in the family,” with Scott adding, “What you saw was nothing out of the ordinary.”

Scott Jenkins (a.k.a. Young Scholar) is a rising rapper from Charlotte, N.C., who crafts hip-hop tunes with his brother Mikey Jenkins (a.k.a. “Mkay”, later stylised as “MKXY”). While featuring on “Backseat dr!ver” by Yckman, Scholar and Mkay also appeared on a charity compilation record, “16 Bars 4 Hip Hop,” which featured forty global unsigned artists. Their debut album, “Kings In The City Of Queens” is creatively dark with addictive realism, almost like a lost Eminem record, making Scott’s light-hearted talent show dance even more hilarious!
