Amazing Five-Year-Old Piano Prodigy (Tsung Tsung) Astounds Us With His Performance (In America We Cut Our Music Programs And Double Down On Jails)

While this five-year-old boy is not South Korea's Yoo Ye-eun, this Hong Kong tot absolutely floored us with his skill. Who knew these little fingers could move so quickly?

A recent Reddit thread with over 400 comments about the clip questions the authenticity of the video, but we're taking the less cynical road. This kid seems to have an amazing talent, as you can see in the video below. He's even perfected his "tortured artist" finale, but breaks it with a smile in the last few seconds.

Mr. Holland was right, you must feed the mind with the arts and music to influence the soul

Update 11/08/2012:

This week, a 5-year-old Internet sensation named Tsung Tsung shut down the conspiracy theorists of YouTube with a live performance of the fast-paced Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov composition, "Flight Of The Bumblebee" on Ellen.

There were a few big differences between this, Tsung's U.S. television debut, and the viral video from the fall that introduced us to the Hong Kong talent. Tsung was noticeably less smiley than he was when we first fell in love. In fact, he was almost deadly serious, clad in a snazzy white tux instead of his usual pajamas. Luckily all his dramatic moves were still there, including a new closer he whipped out in which he throws his hands up "like a gymnast after a golden Olympic performance."
