Pistons' dancing usher and 11-year-old rival resume dance-off on Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

The spontaneous rivalry between the Detroit Pistons dancing usher and the 11-year-old kid who took him on during a time-out dance-off last month at The Palace was resumed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday night.

Fifth-grader Antwain Alexander and the 46-year-old Shannon Sails recreated their impromptu dance-cam battle for the late night talk show host after video of their original face-off attracted more than 7 million views.

The pair wore the same outfits for Tuesday's  rematch and once again moved to Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock's "I Wanna Rock."

Audience reaction once again resulted in a tie and Kimmel complimented both on their skills, saying, "That was some great dancing."

While he feigned animosity that his dancing showcase had been stolen by the youngster, Sails reminded viewers that 'I'm an usher first, and I dance.'

The energetic Alexander said he’s "a mix" of child and dancer — and claims that since he was launched to fame last month, the kids at school can’t get enough of his dancing skills.

"It was crazy," he said about the reaction at school.

Speaking about how other students reacted, Antwain said, "I went to school on Wednesday and it was crazy!"

"You haven’t been to school since Wednesday?" Kimmel shot back. "It’s a good thing you’re a good dancer."
