When Ellen met Elias
Often child stars are more hassle than they’re worth (just ask America in light of Bieber’s recent exploits), but we have spotted one prodigy worth watching on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. It’s not just seven-year-old Elias Phoenix’s perfect piano recital that blew us away. This excitable bundle of hyper-energy was beyond adorable as he bounced on Ellen’s armchair telling her what a “cutie” she is “OMG!” – and the fedora-wearing wonder has already played New York’s Carnegie Hall. I’m guessing we’ll be seeing a lot more of him and his fedora in future. See the clip on YouTube.
