It started with a homemade video that Elissa Colon of Raleigh, N.C. posted on her Facebook page.

Now that video, of Colon’s 6-year-old daughter, Johanna, dancing to Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” has gone viral.

According to the ABC station in Raleigh, little Johanna earned the only standing ovation at a tap recital over the weekend when she performed with two other girls.

You can clearly see in the video that Johanna owned that stage. Notice her giving stage direction to her dance partners.

Colon told the TV station that her daughter, who just brought home a great report card from school, is feisty and bubbly.

Yep, we see that. So do millions of other people. The video has been watched more than 15 million times since Colon posted it on Sunday. Someone even posted it to Franklin’s Facebook page.

Stargazing can’t stop watching it over and over and over again. Love that little girl’s sass.

Why do we suspect Ellen DeGeneres will be calling them soon?
