"Dancing Granny" Tonya Johnson became an internet star after a video of her dance on the Las Vegas Strip went viral last week.

The video has garnered more than 18 million views and has been featured on several websites and local news stations.

The 62-year-old pop-locking granny was invited to visit Cirque du Soleil's show "Michael Jackson ONE" on April 10 after the video came to the attention of cast members.

She enjoyed a private meet-and-greet with several of the artists backstage and even danced with them.

Johnson is a 19-year cancer survivor and attributes her ability to dance to an immense love for life.
