A world famous merengue dancer showed off her smooth moves on the dance floor at the Bonnaroo music festival, and has video of  the talented performer.

A stark contrast to the country singers, rock bands and comedians that usually take to the stage at the Manchester, Tennessee music extravaganza, blonde beauty Carrie is a Chilean dog with such a special skill that she has won her millions of fans on YouTube and even a spot on The Late Show with Dave Letterman.

On Thursday night, the seven-year-old Golden Retriever donned a florescent green and pink tutu with matching collar as she sashayed across the stage on her hind legs with her owner and dance partner, Jose Fuentes.

Her twists, twirls and tail flips caught the attention of a special fan, as actress Kristen Bell gushed over her amazing act after band Alabama Shakes performed. “I’m very familiar with Carrie’s work… I was a couple million of the 15 million (views on YouTube),” said the animal lover reported

Carrie has been dancing since she was a little pup when she first starting walking on her hind legs, which makes her a 49-year veteran of the dance floor in human years!

“We love to dance,” explained Fuentes. “I don't know why she likes to dance, she does it as a way of playing with me and it's like her vibe. Her muscles are very strong, and she likes to wave her arms side to side.”

The pair are currently on tour, having performed at the 14th Annual Los Angeles Salsa Congress last month and are soon headed to film a documentary with Animal Planet, while fans are campaigning to get them a coveted spot on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
