Jimmy Fallon pledges $10K to Make-A-Wish in Joseph Fauria's name

(WXYZ) - Joseph Fauria caught Jimmy Fallon's attention.

Now, his dance moves are changing lives.

The Late Night host pledged $10,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation Tuesday night in response to Fauria's touchdown celebration this past weekend.

"We were going nuts," Fallon said on his show.

Fauria echoed the moves of Justin Timberlake and NSYNC's 'Bye Bye Bye' music video during the Lions win over the Redskins.

Earlier this month, Fallon and Timberlake performed the "Evolution of End Zone Dancing." The last dance in the video was "The Justin Timberlake (From NSync)." Fallon later challenged anyone in the NFL to execute a move from the video in a game.

Fauria was the first to accept the challenge.
