Little Ninja Lylah MacCall has become quite the American Ninja Warrior ambassador! A few years ago, she blew the Internet away with her viral run through her incredible backyard course. She’s followed that up by joining in on Wolfpack Ninja events and another popular video of her taking on obstacles.

The next step for Lylah? Network TV! Lylah was asked to be a part of Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots. The episode will air on June 14 and features Lylah taking on a mini course that was built for her by the actual team behind the American Ninja Warrior course.

Naturally, she crushed it.

We sat in on the taping to cheer on one of our favorite little Ninjas. Afterwards, she sat down for a post-run interview with Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila. In case you were wondering, it was just as funny and adorable as you were imagining.

Matt and Akbar interview Lylah for Little Big Shots

After crusing the obstacles on @Little Big Shots, Lylah sat down with Matt and Akbar for an adorable post run interview.

Lylah talked about her fearlessness. Matt and Akbar asked some very pressing stuffed animal questions, and they all talked about the future of American Ninja Warrior.

Lylah’s Little Big Shots segment was taped before Akbar ran the course for Red Nose Day. He asked for her expert advice and paid close attention to that she had to say.

This is the exact moment Matt realized this little Ninja was upstaging him in the cutest way.

Great job, Lylah!
