Popular American television personality Ellen DeGeneres just can't get enough of John Philip "Balang" Bughaw, the chubby Pinoy kid who went viral online for his spirited dance covers.

The 8-year-old was again jetted off to the US to guest on DeGeneres's talk show, where he busted out his newest set of moves to the tune of Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You." He also talked about how he now has a honorary license to teach zumba in the country. 

"In the two years we've known our next guest, he's gone from being a 6-year-old dancing boy from the Philippines to an 8-year-old international star," said DeGeneres as she introduced Bughaw. 

This is Bughaw's fourth time appearing on "Ellen." He was first invited back in 2015, and went on to perform on the show for two more times last year.
