Jimmy Fallon redneckonizes talent when he sees it!

Reality star and former child beauty pageant competitor Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 8, demonstrated some of her cheerleading moves and made up a special cheer for the Tonight Show host during Wednesday's episode of the NBC show.

The cutie, wearing a sleeveless white collar with bright green leopard-print accents and a matching printed skirt, adorably nudged her mother, "Mama June" Shannon, and danced around in her seat and before Fallon handed her a small pair of silver pom-poms.

Ever the pageant mom, Mama June—who glammed it up in a lace navy top with cap sleeves, black pants and a sleek, half-blonde, half-brunette hairstyle—consulted with her daughter before her daughter got up and joined the host in front of the audience.

 "Five, six, seven, eight! When I say, ‘Jimmy,' you say, ‘Fallon'!" she shouted confidently.

"When I say, ‘Honey,' you say, ‘Boo Boo!'" he replied.

Earlier during the show, the reality star also showcased her sassy personality while bantering with the host, who tried to coax her into giving him a friendship bracelet, and even threw some shade.

She appeared amused when he called himself "Uncle Jimmy" and told her to cover her ears so he could say something to her mom in private. After he flexed a bicep, with his arm covered in his jacket sleeve, Alana replied, while pointing a finger, "That's nothing. Not big enough for me!" 

Alana had also showcased her cheerleading skills at cheer camp, as seen earlier this year on an episode of the family's TLC reality show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which returns with new episodes on June 19.

In February, she appeared on the daytime talk show Katie, where host Katie Couric had the Upstate New York-based competitive cheerleading squad the Core Athletix Black Diamonds teach the child how to do a thigh stand, in which she got to stand on the thighs of two male performers.
