Batkid took over Times Square in New York City Monday and this time, it was American Music Awards host "Pitbull" that needed his help.

Five-year-old Miles Scott, who is in remission from leukemia, stopped by Good Morning America to help save the day once again.

The joker somehow captured Pitbull and locked him in his dressing room but, no worries, Batkid came to the rescue. Pitbull was freed just in time to perform on Good Morning America.

Miles even got a special mention from President Obama Monday during the president's stop in San Francisco. "No more super villains because Batkid cleaned up the streets. I love Batkid," he said.

President Obama was hoping to meet the young caped crusader but unfortunately, Miles was already booked in New York.
