A 4-year-old by the name of Charlie has gone viral on TikTok after her stunning dance performance in which she stood there, frozen solid.
The clip of Charlie “performing” obviously went viral after an audience member posted it to TikTok – which showcased Charlie standing there in a tutu and a mask for six straight minutes, song after song.
“Went to my niece’s outdoor recital and witnessed this legend,” a man named Caleb Collier captioned his TikTok.
Charlie’s mom, Tiffany Cosby, revealed to BuzzFeed News over the phone how she hadn’t even realized her toddler was TikTok-famous until a coworker told her.
Tiffany confirmed that her daughter really “just stood there and stared” for the first six minutes of their recital.
But it should be noted that Charlie for the last dance sequence did in fact dance once she moved away from the front and center.
“We were actually shocked she did dance in the finale. I honestly think it was because she was in the back row,” her mom said. “She is really animated and outgoing if it’s in a small group of people she knows.”
“I asked her, ‘Charlie why didn’t you dance in the beginning?’ And she goes, ‘There were a lot of people.'”
The video Collier originally posted of Charlie has now been viewed over 4.4 million times.
Once Tiffany learned that her daughter was famous on the app, she touched base with Collier and sent him another video she took of Charlie that he then shared on TikTok with her permission.
