Who’s #BackpackKid on Katy Perry’s SNL Performance?

Many of you may have tuned in or seen the coverage from last night’s Katy Perry performance on SNL. But the biggest question this morning has been, “Who’s the Backpack kid”??

Well, he’s none other than a 15 year boy old named Russell (Find him on Instagram) We went on a search to discover who Russell is after seeing his cray freestyle dance moves on the season finale of Saturday Night Live. In case you missed it, it went something like this during Katy Perry’s ‘Swish’ performance:

Who is he? Just your typical 15 year old who loves to dance, lives in Atlanta and is on a mission to end racism. Also, he doesn’t take himself too seriously, and he hopes you won’t either.



We <3 him! He just doin what he do!

“And that’s how i got so big on Instagram. I’m just being myself and being original. I don’t know any other dancers out there that only dance to be funny”. – Russell
