Ryan Wang, Child Prodigy, Plays Piano On 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' (VIDEO)

In addition to being a sensationally talented child prodigy, 5-year-old piano player Ryan Wang is also polite, well-spoken and adorable.

In his Memorial Day appearance on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," the young musician melted our hearts during the interview and then wowed us with his rendition of "Variations On A Russian Theme."

Perhaps the best thing about Wang, who captured the world's attention in September when an amateur video of his virtuosic skills went viral on YouTube and who recently played at Carnegie Hall, is that he genuinely seems to love to play.

Wang's mother, Iris, told Canada's Global News in March: "He never ask me if he win or not...He really enjoy performing in a big theater in front of other people." [sic]

When asked by DeGeneres how he remembers all the music he has to play, Wang's answer was simple: "I just love it, and then sometimes it goes to my fingers.
