    Nobody puts Baby — we mean Charlie — in a corner! The 8-year-old boy from Knoxville, Tenn., has become a viral sensation after his mother posted a Facebook video of him dancing along with Patrick Swayze in her favorite movie, 1987's rom-com hit "Dirty Dancing." BuzzFeed chatted with Charlie's mother, who said he has seen that movie about 10 to 12 times at this point. And it's not just this classic that gets Charlie's hips moving. If anything has dancing and music, he just can't seem to stand still, she said. One day, if ever asked, Charlie may consider his greatest dancing influence to be Michael Jackson. The King of Pop died when Charlie was only 3 years old, but the boy had begun to watch all of his music videos and replicate his moves. Charlie's mother previously posted a video to YouTube for friends and family to check out his "Thriller" moves. Charlie's dance moves have now been seen by more people than most Broadway actors', with over 8 million views of the Facebook video. We really hope the nickname "Charlie Swayze" sticks with this kid.
