VIDEO: Ice skater wows crowd with 'his Riverdance' performance

19-year-old from Illinois received a standing ovation for his routine

Jason Brown 'blew the roof off' the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships with his Irish themed routine.

The event which took place on Sunday in Boston saw the crowd give a standing ovation even before Brown had finished his piece.

Backed by mystical Irish music (very much like Riverdance's Eurovision performance), Brown hops, skips and jumps his way around the rink in an amazing performance that reached an outstanding climax.

The routine has gone viral with over a million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on Sunday.

Brown's routine earned him the silver medal and a ticket to compete with the U.S. Olympic Team in Men's Figure Skating in the Sochi Olympics in February.
