8-Year-Old Girl Who Stole the Show at Christmas Recital Heads to Hollywood

Inspirational - Inside Edition Staff

The New Jersey 8-year-old who brought down the house during her Christmas recital has flown to Hollywood to meet her idol, Dance Moms' star JoJo Siwa.

Lucy Cardillo's hilarious performance at her elementary school recital garnered more than 18 million views on Facebook and even caught the eye of JoJo, who designs the bow Lucy was wearing in her hair.

So the teen YouTube star flew Lucy to Hollywood, where they wore matching outfits and sparkly bows.

Inside Edition was there when Lucy took a visit to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Despite her confidence on stage, the 8-year-old is actually very shy, her mom told Inside Edition.

“She has always been comfortable on the stage,” Kim Cardillo said.

"I like being on stage," added Lucy, a third grader at Resurrection Catholic School in Cherry Hill, N.J.

The audience could not get enough of her sassy moves. 

“I was having so much fun,” Lucy said.

And it's just the beginning for Lucy. When she grows up, she says she wants to be a dancer, just like JoJo.
