On August 11, the America's Got Talent Host posted an Instagram clip of him dancing to "Cruel Summer" by Taylor Swift from her 2019 album, Lover. In the video, he shimmies and kicks with a big grin on his face, wearing a swimsuit and holding a hose that sprays water everywhere. 

"Not a cruel summer when you're staying..." he captioned the post, clearly enjoying himself. 

Crews gave us the origin story behind his tell-tale moves while on The Kelly Clarkson Show in January. Guest host Howie Mandel was intrigued by Crews' control of his chest muscles, and asked how he discovered the skill.

“The way I started and learned how to do that was because I was really lonely and I had — I’m not kidding — I was, like, 12 years old. There were no dates. I was sitting at home alone. I’m looking in the mirror, and I was like, ‘Oh! Oh wow!’” he said. “12-year-old boys come up with some really ridiculous things."

Although Crews sure likes to let go and have fun, he also knows how to be down to earth and introspective as well. Crews turned 55 on July 30, and a week later, he made a reflective post about the wisdom he's gained as he's gotten older.

"I'm inspired and determined to be the best human being I can be," he wrote in the caption. "The greatest thing about getting older - is the choice and decision to grow wiser. To see things in a new way, and the realization that the more you know, the more there is to know," he wrote. 

"This is only the beginning for me," he added. "I choose to be present at this moment, and enjoy NOW, because this is all I have. No past, no future, just NOW. Now is eternal."

"Read to learn some more, grow some more and love some more!" he also wrote, giving thoughtful advice to fans.

Crews expressed an equally deep mindset in a 2022 interview with Hollywood Reporter. As entertainers, you’re perfectionists, but you’ll never do anything perfect. So you’re always feeling disappointed about a performance. You’re totally insecure all the time. But I became secure in just [thinking], “Did I do my best?” And the answer was yes. Then I became very, very satisfied with that, and it started to grow,” he said.
