From the stands of Safeco Field to latest Internet sensation
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. -- A 12-year-old boy who has become an online dancing sensation says he never saw his 15 minutes of fame coming.

"I wanted to dance my heart out," says Jonah Duvall. "As soon as they put the big screen on me I was like, 'Whoa, I'm on the big screen. Sweet!'"

YouTube video of Johnah dancing to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' during a Mariners game at Safeco Field on July 1 has amassed nearly 2.5 million views so far.

The Mariners gave Johnah free tickets after the team saw him dance at a home game in April, but Jonah never thought his latest routine we be so popular.

"All these views have been coming up, stacking, and I was just amazed," he said. "It's awesome."

His mom was a bit surprised and overwhelmed by all the attention her son is getting.

"But I'm excited for him. It's exactly his passion," she said.

Jonah's newfound fame even got him a happy birthday tweet from Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.

Jonah said seeing street dancers last year while on a family vacation in Mexico sparked his interest in dance.
