Lizzo had the crowd — and fans at home — jumping during a high-energy performance at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The attention-grabbing artist sang and danced along to her hit song "Juice" in a performance inspired by the 1993 classic Sister Act 2 that did not disappoint. The 31-year-old rapper and singer is well known for her body positivity and empowering bops.
Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, recently released her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, which includes songs such as "Truth Hurts," which was featured in the Netflix film Someone Great, and the party anthem "Juice," which she sang during her televised performance.
Lizzo didn't skip a beat as she jumped and danced across the stage during the awards ceremony. She clearly had a blast, as was evident by the smile plastered across her face the whole time.
The singer started off her song slow and melodic, dressed in church choir robes. Cameras cut to backstage where one of her dancers insisted the rest of them derobe, which caused the show to evolve into the vivacious performance. Lizzo wore jeans that laced up on the sides, with "LIZZO" emblazoned in diamond lettering across the butt, and paired it with a matching bustier top. Stars including Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, plus Brie Larson and Melissa McCarthy, were jamming along.
Fans were quick to notice the inspiration drawn from Whoopi Goldberg's 1993 film Sister Act 2, due to the backstage comment and similar dance moves.
Here's the Sister Act scene that Lizzo re-created.
Just like Lizzo's performance, this scene starts off slow with Hill's powerhouse vocals. "The teacher says take off your robes," someone says backstage, which Lizzo's dancer quoted almost exactly.
When the rest of the high schoolers join Hill onstage in a more upbeat performance, the dance moves clearly sparked inspiration for the rapper's awards show number. Lizzo even reprised some of the '90s fashion that is apparent in the movie.
