TikTok star Charli D'Amelio stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (March 11) to show off a host of viral dances.

As host Jimmy Fallon introduced each song via cue cards, the 15-year-old danced her way through Dua Lipa's "Don't Start Now," Doja Cat's "Say So," Blanco Brown's "The Git Up" and more. Fallon eventually joined in on the fun, dancing with the TikTok star to Bonde R300 and DJ 6RB's "Oh Nanana (Remix)."

D'Amelio, who has nearly 35 million followers on the platform, also sat down with Fallon to chat about how she's using her viral fame for good after partnering with UNICEF for its anti-cyberbullying campaign on Internet Safety Day. "Talking about cyberbullying really can affect people," she said of her goal for the partnership.

"A lot of people don't like talking about they hate they get, and I know especially me, I get a lot...So I'd rather use the platform that I have now to talk and raise awareness. Because yeah, it hurts when I'm getting it, like, from me, but it hurts the same when I was in school and someone would comment like, 'Oh, you're ugly' under my Instagram post and I had like what? 40 followers? It hurts the same."

During the sit-down, Fallon also managed to tease plans for an upcoming tour out of the teen dancer, who revealed, "We have something planned for the summer where I'm going to hopefully be able to meet a lot of fans and people who follow me..."
