Jennifer Lopez wowed audiences during her Saturday Night Live opening monologue by stripping off to reveal that iconic Versace dress.
At the beginning of the night, the 50-year-old singer stepped out onto the stage in a full tux to make her hosting debut, which ended with a Rockette accompanied rendition of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.
Before the end of the performance though, Jennifer disappeared behind the six artists and then reappeared having taken her original outfit off with the legendary green number hiding underneath.
Only JLo could.
‘Now it’s really Christmas!’ Jennifer shouted.
Unsurprisingly, viewers were living for the grand reveal and wasted no time in shelling out compliments on social media.
‘JLo wins SNL! She stepped out in that Versace dress 20 years later like a boss!’ praised one Twitter user.
Echoing a similar sentiment, another added: ‘DAYAM GURL! JLo still WEARING the hell out of that dress!! 50 never looked so good!!’
This isn’t the first time Jenny from the block has brought back the infamous green ‘Jungle Dress’ she first wore to the Grammys back in 2000.
Earlier this year, she wore a revamped version of the ensemble when she waled for Versace during Milan Fashion Week.

Jennifer’s opening monologue focussed on her incredibly successful year – including her proposal from Alex Rodriguez.
‘Christmas is a really important time for me because it makes you look back at the past year and think about all the things you’re thankful for,’ she said.
The Hustlers star continued: ‘This year, I’ve got to be honest, I’ve been so blessed. First off, I got what every girl from the Bronx dreamed of… proposed to by a Yankee.
‘I’ve had the biggest movie opening that I’ve ever had, that included a lapdance from Cardi B. I went on a sold-out tour and I slayed the Met Gala.’
Jennifer added: ‘The best is yet to come. They tried to count me out so much. But I’m still here.’
