Watch Jennifer Lawrence's Amazing Lip Sync Performance That Was Cut From 'American Hustle'

This is a skill that requires years of practice singing with your hairbrush in front of a mirror.

Jennifer Lawrence's delightfully unhinged performance — read: a '70s Real Housewife of New Jersey who'd always be ready to fight with Teresa — in American Hustle included a great scene of her lip syncing the James Bond theme song "Live and Let Die." It was great. And it turns out J.Law was so good at lip syncing that she got to perform a whole other song too.

In a deleted scene (opens in new tab) from the movie (via BuzzFeed), Lawrence is mouths along to a Santana song while on a cleaning spree. She's wearing a leopard print house dress, so you know she's serious. (Also, there's air guitar.) We all like a little disco while we dust, after all. And we've all been here when that fucking red wine stain won't come out of the rug:
