Lucky Aces, Vancouver hip-hop kids, discovered on YouTube by Ellen
12-year-old duo win over Ellen DeGeneres with amazing moves
Two 12-year-olds from Vancouver caught the eye of U.S. chat show host Ellen DeGeneres with their incredible hip-hop moves.
Performing as Lucky Aces, Lucky (Ryan Ancheta) and A.C. (Andre Bonifacio) were spotted on YouTube and invited onto The Ellen Show on March 31 to strut their stuff.
"Y'all are amazing," DeGeneres said after they pulled off their routine.
While A.C. is short for Andre Camille Bonificio, Ryan explained that his middle name is actually Lucky.
"I was born premature, and I almost didn't make it," he said. "My parents said they were lucky to have me."
Admitting their dream was to perform on stage with Ariana Grande, DeGeneres surprised the pair with VIP tickets to the pop sensation's forthcoming Vancouver show.
