Owen Luebbers is a 2015 Mid-Atlantic champion of Irish dancing.

Philadelphia teenager Owen Luebbers has step-step-stepped his way to viral status after auditioning for "America's Got Talent" and getting a nod or two from celebrities like Britney Spears

According to Huffington Post, 16-year-old Luebbers has been dancing since the age of 4 and is a Mid-Atlantic Region Irish dancing champion. He's also No. 2 in the world in the 15-to-16-year-old category for boys. His style is to mix Irish dance -- an art he says is lost -- with mainstream pop music.

On Vine, he's currently spreading his videos in an effort to raise awareness for childhood cancer. He's garnered a total of 18 million loops on the site.

See his choreographed, Irish dance routines of Ariana Grande's "One Last Time," Meghan Trainor's "Lips Are Movin'," Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea's "Pretty Girls" and Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" below.
