He may not know the lyrics, but this kid sure can perform.
Kahill has been uploading videos on YouTube singing and dancing to different hits for more than a year. His lip-synching and auto tune covers have earned him local celebrity status. He's been interviewed on WGN and B96 before. But his Katy Perry song put him on a different level.
Less than a week ago, Kahill uploaded a video of himself lip-syncing to the song and thus far has received more than a million hits on YouTube (1,394,233 to be exact). The performance even caught the attention of Katy Perry herself! The artist wrote this on her twitter:
"THIS… is my Teenage Dream," later adding "I heart you @KeenanCahill."
