John Travolta proved he can still bust a move as he took to the stage with 50 Cent at a Cannes Film Festival party on Tuesday night.

Travolta, 64, who has previously showed off his dancing skills in "Grease", "Saturday Night Fever", and more recently, "Pulp Fiction", sparked an online meltdown with his "dad moves" as he boogied alongside the 42-year-old rapper while still wearing his tuxedo.

50 Cent later shared a clip on Twitter of the pair on stage, insisting, "I only came out here because of him."

Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for people to react, with some commenting on the actor's "awkward" dancing.

Travolta was also honoured with Variety's first Cinema Icon Award at the bash, which was held at the Hotel du Cap in Antibes.

Olivia Newton-John, Robert DeNiro, and Oprah Winfrey gushed over the star in a video montage as he was awarded the gong.

Travolta's appearance came after he hit the red carpet with his wife Kelly Preston earlier on in the evening for the premiere of his latest film "Gotti".

The flick has been directed by former “Entourage” star Kevin Connolly and chronicles the rise and fall of notorious Gambino family crime boss John V. Gotti.

"Gotti" was originally slated to open in December 2017 but was pulled from release just 10 days ahead of its debut when distributor Lionsgate sold the movie back to its production company.
