Dancing With The Stars kicked off its 29th season on Monday night and Nelly played a big power move by making his debut to his own song.
The rapper, 45, decided his own hit Ride Wit Me was the perfect hit for him to show off his moves for the first time on the show and he performed the salsa with his professional partner Daniella Karagach.
Looking cooler than cool, Nelly ditched his ballroom shoes for a pair of sneakers (of course, he did) and he began his performance on the back of a motorbike, before whirling around the floor with Daniella in tow.
The whole thing was pretty much a whole mood and fans were living for it.
‘Nelly dancing to his own song is a power move if I ever did see one #DWTS,’ one fan tweeted, while another agreed: ‘Nelly dancing to his own song is such a flex.’

Others were so for Nelly’s performance, they started calling for the star to dance to his own tracks every week.
‘I’m gonna need Nelly to dance to his own songs every week, please & thank you,’ said one fan.

‘I want a whole season of Nelly dancing to his own songs #DWTS,’ tweeted one viewer, while another said: ‘I feel like nelly should dance to his own songs every week and we should all just not acknowledge it #DWTS.’
Already putting it requests, one excited fan tweeted: ‘If Nelly doesn’t dance to Hot in Herr at some point then I will RIOT!!!! #DWTS.’
Ahead of his debut, he had shared his thoughts on dancing to his own music and told Entertainment Tonight: ‘Doing my own music is mixed emotions for me.
‘On one hand I’m very thankful that they’re using my music, but on the other hand it’s like, “I came here to dance and not really be Nelly, but to bring Nelly to a different genre.” But I’m game, so we’ll see what happens!’
He joins 15 other celebrities on the show, including Tiger King star Carole Baskin, who found herself bottom of the leaderboard on opening night, and Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause, who fans felt was judged ‘too harshly’ by the panel.
Dancing With The Stars returns on Tuesday September 22 with its first elimination show on ABC.
