Dua Lipa's Grammys Performance Was Full Post-Vaccine Club Energy

Me, when that shot hits.

Like you and me, Dua Lipa is ready for this pandemic to be over and hit the club. On Sunday, the singer proved just how much with a performance of “Levitating” and “Don’t Start Now” the 2021 Grammys that screamed "post-vaccine energy." Note her slew of glittery pink disco looks (opens in new tab) (custom Versace, no less), sparkly magenta eyeshadow, and moves that personified "I'm three drinks on the dance floor, I've hugged 12 strangers, and I haven't hand sanitized once." We love to see it (and cannot wait to experience it).

The internet was so obsessed with the ~ club vibes ~ of it all, and that Lipa brought her dancing A-game to the award show, that "Dula Peep" (her Wendy Williams-prescribed nickname (opens in new tab)) quickly began tredning on Twitter.

See the best reactions to Dua's performance, Sharpay comparisons and all. And best of luck to the singer who is nominated in six categories, including Album of the Year, tonight. May we all celebrate her wins in a club soon.
