There's a lot to talk about in this video of Rae Sremmurd performing "Black Beatles" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Ellen says that the duo were "overnight sensations;" Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi promote their iTunes page and Instagram accounts before they reach the chorus; there's a very well-controlled mannequin challenge that mostly involves lots of baffled daytime TV audience members trying very hard to not look out-of-touch in front of America.

But, above all, there's this moment, in which Swae Lee reaches out to DeGeneres mid-performance. Look how stoked Ellen is.


Look at Ellen.
