Is Soulja Boy Daylon Trotman the new Lucky?

The 7-year-old phenom known for his "Soulja Boy" dance on the JumboTron during Celtics games made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show yesterday, showed off his moves, and scored some season tickets to watch the Celtics at home next season.

The Milton kid flew with his mom, Dana Clarke, to California on Tuesday to film with the talk-show host. Clarke said she and her son started going to games regularly a few years ago because they both love basketball. "And Daylon loved the music. He always wanted to stand up and dance and I would say, 'no.' And finally, I said 'yes.' " Her son, who practices moves with his cousins and watches dance shows, quickly became a fan favorite. "He gets up and he really jams," she said. Ellen's people called Sunday after seeing Daylon on Fox 25, she said. Yesterday, they were on a plane. Before the taping, Daylon said he planned to go with the flow when Ellen plays "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)." "I just do random moves," he said.

Daylon puts on some moves that would make Gino blush in the video from his appearance on "Ellen" yesterday below:
