    And then, Graham Norton brought out the big guns. VIDEO of a very young Ryan Gosling in a dance recital.

    Ryan of course, was a pretty good sport about it.

    Ryan explained that the tween dance troupe scene could be pretty rough.

    He talked about the fierce competition he faced while doing a "sort of Canadian Star Search."

    He continued, "They were dancing to Phil Collins's "Two Hearts" and they had big, heart-shaped bows, and they were the ones to beat."

    But Ryan felt like he had it under control, with his perfect starting stance for his routine to "Everybody Dance Now."

    And right as he was about to start, the twins were in his sightline, ready to intimidate.

    Savage AF.

    But in the end, Ryan prevailed.

    And then, it was time to relive the magic. Sit back and enjoy.
