India's Got Talent Dancer Is Latest Kid to Charm Ellen

02/18/2014 AT 04:00 PM EST



He's only 8 years old, but little Akshat Singh has already made a big impression on Ellen Degeneres.

While visiting the Ellen set Monday – his first-ever visit to America – the India's Got Talent winner delighted the crowd with an acrobatic mix of cartwheels, headstands and pelvic thrusts

How does Singh explain his hoofing skills? "I dance every day for three hours, and I eat more," he explained.



Singh is the latest in a long line of precocious moppets to entrance the daytime talk-show host. Relive our favorite pint-sized Ellen guests below.

Sophia Grace and Rosie



These English cousins charmed the web with their 2011 cover of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass," and Ellen wasted no time in making them an integral part of her show – a position Sophia Grace attempted to parlay into a Hollywood career.

Kai Langer



As you may be able to tell from the hat, Langer is the world's biggest – or maybe smallest – Bruno Mars fan. He's popped up on Ellen's couch a few times to cover his idol's songs and, as seen in the video above, to ask Ellen to be his girlfriend.

Heaven King



At three years old, Heaven wasn't even alive for most of Beyoncé's biggest hits, but that didn't stop this toddler from performing an adorable mom-assisted routine to "End of Time."

Anthony Naylor



At an age when most kids are popping juice boxes, Anthony was popping and locking.

Yuto Miyazawa



Akshat Singh wasn't the first international child prodigy to appear on Ellen; three years prior, Japan's Yuto Miyazawa wowed the crowd with a shred-tastic performance of Ozzy Osbourne's "Paranoid."

Elias Phoenix



He's got the hair of a rock god and the timing of a Catskills comic, but Elias can tickle the ivories like he needs the piano's lunch money.
