Antwain Alexander is not a name that was known to many before November 19th. Antwain was attending a Detroit Pistons game when his young life would forever be changed. Every home game at The Palace, the Pistons, during a break, throw up on the big screen the ever popular Dance-Off Cam. It is during this two minutes of fun that we get to see Shannon Sailes, otherwise know as The Detroit Pistons Dancing Usher.

During the November 19th game at The Palace, the Pistons were facing the New York Knicks. During a stoppage in play, the Dance Cam was started. After browsing the crowd and watching a few of the kids in the crown dance, the camera landed on 11 year old Antwain Alexander. Antwain was quick to get up and start moving to the beat and the crowd was into his moves from the start. The camera then went to the Dancing Usher and he picked up right were little Antwain left off. After the Dancing Usher made his moves, the camera went back on to Antwain and he was ready! They went back and forth until play resumed.

The game wasn’t even done yet and Twitter in the Detroit area was buzzing about the dance-off at The Palace! Now the video has over 7 million views and the Dancing Usher and Antwain were featured on Good Morning America, The Today Show and even Jimmy Kimmel Live! Jimmy Kimmel loved the video so much, he invited the duo on his show to have a rematch of the dance off!
