While professional dancer Mark Kanemura has been on stage with the likes of Lady Gaga and RuPaul for years, he became a viral sensation last year when he posted clips of himself dancing and wig snatching to the tune of "Cut to the Feeling" by Carly Rae Jepsen. 

 

And now, his internet fame has taken him full circle. Just last weekend at San Francisco's Outside Lands music festival, Kanemura stole the show with a wig-snatching routine during Carly's performance of "Cut to the Feeling." Complete with multiple rainbow flags, a rogue fan, and nearly a dozen wig reveals, fans in the audience couldn't help but scream. 

 

"I was INCREDIBLY nervous, excited, and emotional going into this as this song has been such a big part of my past year, lifting me out of such a sadness I was in and helping me to get back into a fun, playful, creative life," Kanemura wrote on Instagram. "It was also the first time I was hearing this song live, performing this live, and meeting Carly! And can we be honest, between the Red Bull I had before this, my extreme nerves and excitement, and my first time hearing this song live, that fan DID NOT stand a chance!"
