Watch: Elias Phoenix cutes it up on 'Ellen' show again

Elias Phoenix, the 7-year-old pianist who played at Carnegie Hall in November, then charmed Ellen DeGeneres on her show in January, appeared on her show again Thursday.

On the show, he asked DeGeneres to follow him on Twitter, but she beat him to it because she said she started following him before the new show started taping.

Also, the last time Elias was on the show, he told DeGeneres that he completed his two goals of performing at Carnegie Hall and appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, so his next goal is to attend Harvard University.

DeGenerous surprised him with a Harvard sweatshirt after he performed a piano piece by Bach. She also presented him with a new sound system for him and his brother, Zion.
