Ellen DeGeneres has a knack for discovering amazing young talent from around the world, and her latest guest was no exception. DeGeneres welcomed Toby Lee, a 13-year-old blues guitarist from Oxfordshire, England, who demonstrated some amazing skills on the strings.

Toby took the stage to play Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" on his electric guitar, which has his name printed on the strap. He even showed off an impressive move in which he played the guitar over his shoulder. At the close of his performance, the audience gave him a well-deserved standing ovation.


Toby, who's been playing since he was 6, also sat down with DeGeneres for an interview, and shared a personality as cool as his guitar skills. When the host commented that it was unusual for a kid his age to get into blues music, Toby joked, "I know, I'm a 13-year-old boy. I haven't had a wife left me yet."

But guitar isn't Toby's only love — he also has a passion for vintage cars. He shared that he used his earnings from appearing in the stage musical School of Rock to buy himself a 1965 Volkswagen bus. Since the engine fell out, and he's not even old enough to drive yet, Toby intends to do his "Sunday jams" in it — so obviously Ellen had to gift him a few things to make it more comfortable.
