The dazzling disco ball that is John Travolta’s chrome dome came out to play last night at the 2020 Premio Lo Nuestro, Univision’s awards celebrating Latin music. Why was John there? No one knows. Maybe host Pitbull’s bald head sent out the cue ball signal which, prior to John euthanizing his beloved pet possum, was only ever answered by Vin Diesel repeatedly showing up outside his bedroom holding a warm 6-pack of Corona and blasting Hey Ma from The Fate of The Furious soundtrack on a boombox.
Page Six reports:
The 66-year-old actor — who’s famously sashayed across the big screen for decades now — showed off some impressive song-and-dance moves when he joined Pitbull on stage during the Premio Lo Nuestro awards show in Miami on Thursday. The “Grease” star swirled his hips while grooving alongside the pop star, Chesca and Lil John.
Pitbull hosted the Latin awards show.
We know John still likes to shake a tail feather now and again. He got up on stage and danced with 50 Cent at the Gotti premiere. But he was in Gotti so his presence was understandable. But he had people scratching their heads last night. I shouldn’t use that phrase, it’s probably triggering for John after spending all those years not being able to do so freely. I’ll just say people were confused.

Here’s the full performance:
If you know your Pitbullology (or you’re a Travoltademic), you know that John and Pitbull actually go way back. John starred in Pitbull’s video for 3 to Tango in which a bald headed man is entertained by a large number of scantily dressed ladies. The bald head is coyly shot from the back so one assumes it’s Pitbull but there’s a big reveal and it was John all along and now he’s dancing a tango with the women and sniffing a red rose and it’s all very sexy in an exclusively heterosexual way and not nearly as campy as I made it sound. Okay, it’s slightly campier than I made it sound.
I don’t know guys, is Scientology maybe a little bit fun? I mean between Tom Cruise cutting loose in Tropic Thunder and scaling fences and shit to par-tay, and John getting his groove on, I’m beginning to think these crazy kids might be onto something and are definitely not trying to distract us from all those wacky stories we keep hearing about their organization’s alleged ongoing and systemic human rights violations.
