Jennifer Lopez stunned NFL viewers when she performed a flawless pole dancing routine at the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday.

The multihyphenate superstar sang her 1999 hit "Waiting for Tonight" while hitting poses on a rotating pole onstage, which she shared with fellow Latinx icon Shakira

Lopez famously trained to pole dance for her role in the 2019 film "Hustlers," in which she played a veteran stripper named Ramona.

Despite widespread critical acclaim and awards show buzz, Lopez was shut out of the nominations for the 2020 Oscars.

As soon as the pole appeared during her halftime performance, Twitter lit up with reminders that Lopez was snubbed - and jokes about her refusal to let her intense "Hustlers" training go to waste.

"This is what happens when you snub Jlo for the oscars she only grows more powerful," joked BuzzFeed's Stephanie McNeal.

"JLo out here reminding the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences about their Hustlers f*** up like they're her s----- ex," wrote Vice senior culture writer Tijuana Maxx. 

Watch the full performance below.
