It was a moment of brilliance worth waiting for.

In her kitchen, 12-year-old Seanan O'Halloran from west Belfast was caught on camera as she danced to a remix of The Fray's How to Save A Life.

Her moves were met with encouraging excited screams from those who gathered to watch the talented youngster.

And now her video which was uploaded online by her cousin has gone viral with more than six million hits and is being viewed all around the world.

The first couple of seconds of the video sees the teenager waiting to start her dance, with shouts from the crowd saying, "wait for it" as they knew what was to come.

And suddenly she bursts in to the routine full of speedy, fancy footwork.

The video has been shared thousands of times and has wracked up hundreds of comments with people praising the young girl's talents.

Mum Christine (38) said: "We are all stunned.

"She was at my brother's house and she was just having a wee dance off with her cousins.

"Within no time of uploading it, it had been viewed so many times.

"She loves dancing.  She has been dancing since she was no age.

"She does ballet and contemporary dance."

The family are completely stunned at the video which has more than six million hits online.

Christine said: "None of us can believe it.

"We are just in shock, we can't believe it. She can't believe it either.
