    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    If there was a word that superseded "iconic," I'd use it to describe it.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:

    I swear that video of Fergie simultaneously doing front cartwheels and sing grunting was shot in a different realm. My mind can't comprehend the fact that she actually did that

    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.
