Watch the video below to see how Carter did in the Ultimate Amazing Most Bestest Best Dancer of All Time competition! He's the ultimate amazing most bestest best dancer in the bright red shirt, in case you were wondering.

We'll let you decide whether or not The Ultimate Amazing Most Bestest Best Dancer of All Time competition was for real. But in case you were wondering, Carter's National title as Junior Male Best Dancer is for real and he's enjoyed touring with Jump, NUVO, and 24Seven this season. He's done us all at Center Stage proud!
