Jack in the Big Apple

They grow up so fast.

It seems like just yesterday Jack Millos was bringing Rogers Arena to life with his dancing. Well, everyone’s favourite six-year-old, who turns seven on Monday, has a monumentally big TV appearance Sunday, as in tomorrow, a mere five days after his dancing video went viral. Jack will take a bite out of the Big Apple and strut his stuff in a Canucks jersey on NBC’s Today Show.

Yes, that Today Show. THE Today Show.

Jack, sister Teaghan, dad Ron and mom Elizabeth, received word they’d been invited to New York Friday afternoon and they were flown there today in advance of Sunday’s weekend edition of the show,  anchored by Lester Holt and Jenna Wolfe. The show is set to air at 8 a.m. EST Sunday morning, that’s 5 a.m. PST, as in crazy early, so be sure to set your PVRs so you don’t miss Jack take the world by storm.

Go, set your PVR right now. I’ll wait for you to return before I write anything else…

And we’re back.

If you’re just joining in on the phenom that is Dancing Jack, here are a few links to get you caught up.

Best of luck Jack!

UPDATE: Just got an email from Elizabeth, Jack’s mom. She said all is well in New York and that Jack is Jack, he doesn’t seem nervous at all. The family is wired from all the excitement, and understandably so, but they’ll have to sleep fast with an early pick up time of 6:45 a.m. EST. Jack is then scheduled to be on air to start the Today Show with a few teasers early on, before he takes centre stage at 8:40 a.m. EST. Also, Jack was recognized at the airport heading to New York, so a lucky couple from Kelowna heading to Cabo on vacation received the first ever autographed photo of Jack. Get in line, I get the second!
