Regardless of how much or how little you know about the world of dance, it's pretty easy to believe that Filipino-Canadian dancer and performer AC Bonifacio is overflowing with talent. And guess what? We're not the only ones completely floored by AC's skills; even famous celebrities from overseas have caught wind of AC and her dance covers, and they weren't shy about showing some love to her. May favorites talaga si Lord, and one of them is AC!

Below, we list down eight international celebrities and personalities who noticed AC Bonifacio's talent:

B.I and Destiny Rogers

Former iKON member and now soloist Kim Hanbin, who goes by the stage name B.I, left a grateful comment on AC's TikTok where she covered "Got It Like That," a single he came out with in collaboration with Destiny Rogers and Tyla Yaweh. Even Destiny saw AC's TikTok and complimented the 18-year-old.


Cardi B

Most recently, rap queen Cardi B reposted AC's Instagram upload of her dancing to the rapper's song "Up" on her Instagram Stories for her 98 million followers to check out.


Getting noticed by your faves is something fans can only dream of. In the ultimate #SanaAll moment, BTS's official TikTok account liked AC's take on the group's "Butter" choreography, which AC herself could not believe at first.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez got to collaborate with Blackpink on their song "Ice Cream," and of course, AC made a short dance cover of it on her Instagram! To her surprise, Selena reposted her video on her own Insta Stories.

CLC's Sorn

Thai K-pop idol Sorn from girl group CLC is also quite the TikTok star. On her Instagram Live with AC, Sorn shared that she kept on seeing videos of AC and her crew dancing (including social media star Niana Guerrero), which impressed her so much that she followed them on social media. P.S. Sorn and AC are now mutuals and internet friends!

Kenny Ortega

In 2018, The High School Musical choreographer and director was reportedly in awe of AC and Filipino-American dancer Kenneth San Jose when they danced together to Chris Brown's "Questions." Ortega left a comment on their video, saying, "Fantastic Jam!!!"

Kyle Hanagami and Kiel Tutin

International choreographers Kyle Hanagami and Kiel Tutin are just two of the masterminds behind the viral choreographies of some of BLACKPINK's hits, including "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du", "Kill This Love", and "How You Like That". Aside from winning a YG Entertainment competition with another Blackpink dance cover, AC was once also praised by the two choreographers for her on-point cover of "Kill This Love"!
