Tsung Tsung, 5-Year-Old Hong Kong Piano Prodigy, Is Incredible (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

This week, a 5-year-old Internet sensation named Tsung Tsung shut down the conspiracy theorists of YouTube with a live performance of the fast-paced Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov composition, "Flight Of The Bumblebee" on Ellen.

There were a few big differences between this, Tsung's U.S. television debut, and the viral video from the fall that introduced us to the Hong Kong talent. Tsung was noticeably less smiley than he was when we first fell in love. In fact, he was almost deadly serious, clad in a snazzy white tux instead of his usual pajamas. Luckily all his dramatic moves were still there, including a new closer he whipped out in which he throws his hands up "like a gymnast after a golden Olympic performance."

Check out the video above, which includes a brief, translated interview with Tsung, and let us know what you think of his talents in the comments.
