The boy whose outrageously choreographed dance from his bar mitzvah recently became an Internet sensation recreated the performance in New York City this morning.

13-year-old Sam Horowitz performed the same dance with the help of six back-up dancers on “Good Morning America.” When GMA interviewed Sam’s mother, Angela, she revealed that she began planning the bar mitzvah entrance that made Sam a celebrity when he was just 9-years-old.

“At a very young age, I took him to his first concert,” Angela Horowitz explained. “Dancers came from the ceiling on chandeliers and he said, ‘Mom, I’m gonna do that for my bar mitzvah.’ ”

“I thought he would change in four years, but when Sam commits, he commits.”

The (probably gay) teen from Dallas achieved Internet stardom when the video, which was filmed last November, appeared on a Jewish parenting site.

It is currently YouTube’s most popular video.

“I would rehearse every Sunday for a month for three hours with my very good choreographer,” he told GMA, saying that his new-found fame is “like a dream.”

“I never thought this would happen in my entire life,” he said.

The performance took place at the Omni Hotel in Dallas.

Reactions to the over-the-top entrance were mixed. Some loved the routine, some found it vulgar, and some just accepted it as a young boy proudly coming out of the closet.

“What is this? ‘Keeping up with the Steins?’ Sorry, I find it vulgar, ostentatious, and humiliating,” commented Gary Goldstein, a physician from Oro Valley.

“Was this for the benefit of the parents or the kid? All that was missing was a stripper pole.”

One comment read:

“Sam is going to make some man very happy one day,” while another added that “this little boy has to be gay because there would be no other reason to have something over the top for him. He’s turning 13 years old he’s not a burlesque dancer.”
