Ellen knows exactly how to track down extremely talented people. She’s invited celebrities, musicians, and other talented people onto her show. It’s not the adults that catch everyone’s attention, though. It’s the children.
“Ellen” has been running for over ten years. In that time, we’ve seen plenty of children and their incredible talents. See some of the best ones below.
1. ‘Lil Mushroom
‘Lil Mushroom showed up on “Ellen” in 2017 to show off her incredible “pop and lock” dance moves. Thee 7-year-old was on her first trip to the United States. Though we don’t hear a ton from her, it’s darling to watch her try to teach Ellen her name. You also have to see her incredible skills.
2. Nate Seltzer
Nate Seltzer is a 5-year-old who has memorized the entire globe. Watching him walk Ellen through one of his hand-drawn maps might be one of the cutest things you’ll see all day. Apparently, Nate can identify every single flag as well.
When Brielle was 3-years-old, she knew the entire periodic table of elements. It only took her six months to memorize every single element. She also knows all of the states and capitals, countries in Europe and Africa, and the presidents.
A year later, she was brought back onto the show. This time, she taught Ellen about the human body. Apparently, for her 4th birthday, she received the game Scrabble. She can’t quite play it yet, but according to her, “I’m still sounding out my words.” She’s been on the show several times and taught Ellen about biology and the solar system.
4. Daniel Clarke Bouchard
Daniel was only 14-years-old when he was on Ellen’s show. He started playing the piano when he was 5-years-old. When he was on the show, he had already played at Carnegie Hall. Now, three years later, he is studying at Juilliard part-time.
These kids are so talented—and just a few of the many prodigies Ellen has brought onto her show.
