Bernie Sanders shows off some amazing dance moves on 'Ellen'

Thanks to Tuesday's Democratic debate, voters learned presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' views on a variety of hot-button issues. But when a clip from Thursday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" surfaced, they got to see his dance moves, too.

In the video above, the Vermont senator is seen making a memorable entrance to the show's set, clapping and busting a move to the Trammps' 1976 hit "Disco Inferno." The song's catchy chorus, of course, features the lyrics "Burn, baby, burn" — a play on Sanders' first name.

"You came out here dancing, Bernie! That's fantastic," DeGeneres told Sanders, who replied, "And thank you for the very positive energy you provide to the American people."

Sanders isn't the only presidential candidate who's demonstrated some impressive moves on "Ellen."

When his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton visited the talk show in September, she good-naturedly danced with DeGeneres to rapper Silentó's bouncy summer hit, "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)."

Clinton's performance prompted a critique from former President Bill Clinton, who took to Twitter to comment that his wife "looks good w her Whip skills, but needs work w her NaeNae."
