One word for the 90’s era: Nostalgic. Lizzo reverted us back to the 90’s with her own rendition o the iconic “Joyful Joyful” scene from Sister Act 2 during her performance at the 2019 MTV Movie and TV Awards ceremony.
The vivacious entertainer started recited the lyrics to her hit single, “Juice,” by her lonesome. It first appears her coyness overshadows the quirky wordplay, in homage of Lauryn Hill’s solo during the final scene of ‘Sister Act II,’ until moments later, the camera is directed backstage where a blonde haired female, instructs Lizzo’s background dancers to ‘take off their robes,’ before approaching the stage with their energetic dance number.
The performance showed the creative guise of not only Lizzo’s imagination when she added ‘Oh Happy Day’ to the mix, her choreographers who showcased their choerographic skills in a minor impromptu set.
Lizzo is kick starting her ‘Cuz I Love You Too,’ tour on June 19 at the Madison Theatre in Covington, Kentucky and will end on October 8th at the Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri. Check out the rest of the tour dates below as well as watching her stunning performance above.
