Fergie Finally Acknowledged That Iconic Performance Of Her Doing Cartwheels And It's Everything

·2 min read

SOOOO...if you're a pop culture enthusiast like myself, you definitely know Fergie's performance of "Barracuda" on TODAY in 2008:

If there was a word that superseded "iconic," I'd use it to describe it. It's BEYOND iconic. Fergie sings live while doing multiple cartwheels:

Honestly, though, the breath control/stamina to do this!!! WOW.

Every time the performance is posted or mentioned, it goes viral (as it should). It's been memorialized on Twitter:

And TikTok:

And even by gays like me, who decided to be Cartwheel Fergie for Halloween:

All this to say, Fergie has never really acknowledged this Pop Culture History 101 moment. Until now.

Earlier this week, people began sharing their Spotify Wrapped, which is basically a ranking of your top played songs, albums, artists, etc. It eventually became a meme, with fans making edits like these, which referenced Fergie's performance:

Meme account Diet Prada reposted the edit, and THE Fergie herself saw it and commented:

"My signature dance move." YES, Fergie. It is your signature move that will forever stand the test of time. It will never be duplicated.

Thank you for that performance, legend. May it live on forever.
